The meeting you've waited for has arrived. Three page scans under the cut.







It's sort of interesting though how Damian refers to Cass as the Black Bat and not her time as Batgirl. I wonder if this anything to do with the revamp? Probably not just him using her current name.

So we get a nice little banter between Cass and Tim about the demon spawn:



And yeah there's another great Cass moment in this too. But I think I'll let another post that or you can get it yourself. Gates of Gotham pretty much is delivering in a great story. Dick looks like to be in good hands come Sept.

I still kind of wish this was sort of an ongoing event. Seeing Bruce's kids (save for Jason) work together on something is just a sight to behold.

"I've seen the condescending looks you give, woman. You think I can't cut it?"

AND THERE'S THE KICKER. Did you guys miss that part?

LOL, Cass looking at him, like "awww, lookie the little bat boy," back in GoG #1 must' have really offended him, that now he's gotta prove he's better than her, by knocking her down. Typical boys' behavior if you ask me.

Why are people mad about this? I'm a Cass fan and I ain't even mad. Cass shouldn't be either. She should be able to read him for what it is. Boy's retaliating cuz he thinks she was looking down on him earlier.

He's intimidated by her, and the fact that she refuses to take his bait annoys him even more. Not that I wouldn't love for Cass to take him a peg down or two, but her non-reaction itself is a good response.

*nod nods* There's not a lot of people who DON'T react to him. Even if the others don't respond to him directly, they will talk about him to others. Cass is like; "....there's a backdoor over there. Let's take it." Like she didn't hear what he said. Good girl! :)

This. Damien's the equivalent of a bullying ten year old, only one with a bit more wealth and prestige behind him than most. Responding to him just gives him what he wants and gives him more fuel; you mouth back at someone mouthing off at you, you're giving them more ammo. Cass isn't stupid, and generally talks economically anyway, so to speak - The way I see it, talking's difficult for her, so she doesn't do it unless she has to. So she doesn't respond to Damien and doesn't have to.

Plus. Damien isn't the detective his father or Tim are, and isn't a social butterfly in the slightest, which is why he interprets Cass' attitude as condescension, when it isn't at all, and she's just the one member of the Bat-Family who might be less sociable than Bruce himself.

"...and she's just the one member of the Bat-Family who might be less sociable than Bruce himself."

lmao...I don't know why this made me laugh so much, but yes this is so true.

You're right, Damian's totally read her wrong because he doesn't know that. I guess he's gotten so used to everyone working for Batman being chipper/sociable/talkative, that Cass must come off as a bit of shock. All he knows is a summary of her violent background, so since she' hasn't turned out like the rest of the heroes, he's assuming she's like the assassins (who are probably very competitive, stoic, archaic and arrogant). When the reality is she is like neither.

lol, poor Cass (and to some degree poor Damian, lol...), it's just an unfortunate misunderstanding.

damn, I love this kind of writing and wish we could see more of it or at least see it explored more. At face value it looks simple, but it's totally not. I hope the writer goes more in depth or at least have these characters come to an understanding at least. (i'm probably wishing for too much...T-T )

hey Pepper, sent you a message.

I agree completely. he's trying to save face, she probably even read that he was excited when she showed up,

also i would have paid double just to have Cass say those words to him :D

I think everyone would have had a conniption if she had, starting with Damian. Cass probably doesn't care, but why invite people to think you're weirder than you are. X3

I would like to retract my "typical boy's behavior" comment. Girls can act like that too. *raises hand guiltily* It's just immature behavior really.

Yeah, I felt this read really in character for Cass. It's so bittersweet, given that she'll be benched in Sept.

Ugh.
