Following Cass getting an attack of adolescent rebellion, causing her to disobey Bruce for the first time, Bruce realises that he's been using her as a weapon just like her father had, albeit for more altruist reasons. To attempt to make it up to her, he gives her the Steph Brown Treatment, and sacks her for what he considers to be her own good, so she can live a life truly on her own terms without being used as a tool by him or anyone else.

Unfortunately, firing someone with no friends, qualifications, or skills outside of those that can be used to fight crime and no clue as to what alternatives are avaliable goes about as well as you'd imagine...

Cass steals a spare costume and goes after a group of drug dealers that she's fought a number of times before, only for Batman to show up to stop her just as the head of the gang bunges a phial of rage drug at them, causing the pair to go on a fight that wrecked a lot of the city.

Which I can post part of tomorrow if people want. ^^

Nyssa reiterated this to Cassandra in "Destruction's Daughter," the final arc in Cass' own book. Nyssa said that Batman *only* saw Cassandra as a tool, which is why he never taught her to read or be a "whole" person.

Also, wasn't Bruce hiring and then firing Stephanie really just a plan to get Tim back as Robin?

War Games never happened, is the first time a book has been so heavely retconed so all the changes and events It introduced were deleted into oblivion.

And Batman didnt have nothing much to do in the Identity Crisis book, no much more than beign TimĀ“s emotional support.

It was a shame that Morrison and Snyder didnt have time to work together fiting the new status quo of Batman Inc. That was a fun Batman, I dont know if he was still a jerk o rnot but at least he was fun
