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*

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. :/
