This makes me so mad I can barely articulate it.

I find it incredible that somehow having "future plans" for a character prevents them being used now. The same excuse was given for not having Cass in the BOP issue where everyone got together, and I ask you, what difference would a cameo there have made to her next appearance? None whatsoever. Hell, if you wanted to keep her new Black Bat identity a Batman Inc. surprise you could have had her appear in civilian gear or that ninja suit she was wearing.

I imagine there's future plans for Bruce, Dick et al as well but that doesn't prevent their inclusion. Honestly, if you don't want to use a character right now then say so. Don't give us the "big things in store" line, because Cass fans have heard that far too often and had nothing come from it.

About the only legitimate reason I can see for not including Cass and Steph is if they want to completely reboot these characters. Steph isn't a problem (although with TT being Tim's main title you'd lose a lot of interaction with him) having been reintroduced a number of times now. I could also see this working for Cass (even the likely deaging to separate her from Babs, since her naivete always 'read' as young) but she'd need a fairly hefty supporting role in a title if you're going to hit all the high points of her first few years, which are pretty essential to her character, and I don't see that happening anytime soon.
