When Cass was Batgirl and Steph was Robin...

From Batgirl 53
Cass is out disrupting an illegal arms deal on the streets of Gotham, when it suddenly takes a turn for the unexpected.

Luckily Batman sends a temp to go and help out Cass,

Cass: Steph... your hair is HUGE!

Thus begins one of the few times Cass and Steph teamed up professionally that didn't have Bruce tell them not to, hooray!

Of course it was heavily implied after Batman fired her, that Bruce only gave Steph the job to make Tim jealous, and make him return to the job that he'd retired from at his father's request. Oh well.

They find that the Penguin was the one who was selling the superguns to gangs around the city, and has been using one of his henchmen's five year old daugther to transport them, on the basis that people won't expect a child of smuggling guns. Well, this WAS the guy who had a side operation of farming the unwanted babies of teenage mothers over in Broken City, so it shouldn't really be that suprising.

Another weakness of Cass' rears it's ugly head: a lack of people skills!

Steph and Cass go to get Oswald, and Steph gets speach-a-fying,

This was the first of two team-ups they had while Steph was Robin (though there might have been more in flashback if Steph's series had been allowed to progress *bitter*), and they only met briefly once more before Steph died in War Games. *sigh*

Heh. Now I'm thinking there needs to be a 'Batgirl and Robin' book starring these two. But alas, this is DC and we can't have nice things.

Or even a Black Bat and Spoiler book would be awesome. But seeing as the lost issue of Steph in Batman Inc got pushed into the recent "Leviathan Strikes" and was clearly labeled as "This takes place before Flashpoint" I doubt we will ever see Steph again.

I would totally read a Black Bat and Spoiler book. Also wasn't it confirmed a while back that Steph still exists in DCnU?

No amount of any confirmation will ever convince me (I am a bit bitter about Barbara back.) I will believe it when I have an issue in my hand with Steph on the cover.

A lot of people have said they'd read that book. I wish DC would TRY it, at least. They might be surprised at how it does, and even if it fails, at least they tried :/

I think they were disappointed by the Spoiler & Robin (Tim) special that brought her back. It did find, mind you, but it didn't make a huge splash.

Considering how successful Batgirl was with both Cass and Steph leading the book, I don't see why it can't be done. Both characters are really popular with fans and a book starring those two I think would be just as successful, if not more.

I would not only read a Black Bat & Spoiler book but I would read (aka BUY) before any of the other Bat-books currently headlined by all the male Robins.

I feel the same way. Nothing against any of the Robins, but aside from Jason who's sort of the wildcard of the group, I never really found the Robins interesting enough as characters for me to invest in any of their books. At best, I'll give RHATO a try when another team comes in and actually does ALL of the characters justice, and I liked the Batman and Robin title better when Dick and Damian were the dynamic duo since they actually brought something new and different to the table. But that's as far as my 'Robins' support goes. :/

I doubt we will ever see Steph again.

See, this is why I don't buy comics. Because they keep coming up with awesome stuff like good solid female heroes, and then deep-sixing them. I'll stick with fanfic.

I would so read a book with Steph and Cass.
