With their secret mission in South America continuing, Cass recognises that she won't be able to get anything done with Ollie constantly sniping at her verbally and proclaiming who he can't work with a "murderer" (despite him having killed various people himself). So she decides to allow him to work his feelings out...

This over with, Ollie just proceeded to bug everyone else on the team instead of Cass, and generally act like an exaggerated version of himself. Including breaking into Wayne Manor after Bruce "died" and pinching things from his wine cellar, which I guess is fair enough, what with Bruce being Teetotal and all.

Also this series did also bring in Cass making her superhero team, the Network, though Dick and Barbara appeared to hijack after Cass'd done most of the legwork and it was promptly forgotten about after Battle of the Cowl was over. Which is kind of a shame, as it had Cass and Steph's first meeting since the latter heroine's "death" and could have been a chance for the pair to potentially star in a book together.

And then Cass was ejected from the book entirely, despite being the only one to hang around after RIP and their friendly OMAC exploding due to the Black Glove's tomfoolery, just so that Dan Didio wouldn't have to write her in "his" version of the team.

Oh well.

So were ever supposed to remotely be on Ollie's side at any point in his appearances here? I'm genuinely curious.

"Sanctimonious hypocritical pillock" is perhaps the politest term I can use for him here and I've already edited it twice because the terms that first occurred would probably have got me into trouble here.

This annoys me, not just because GA is such a gaping asshole I can't use use the words to describe him properly without summoning an Elder God, but also because GA is somehow isn't getting his ass kicked six ways to Sunday by Cass in just as many seconds.

Such as shame that towards the end of the old DCU Green arrow became such a huge prick. I grew up with him in the animated DCU and we was never that jerkish. Which is why the reboot did a good thing, it made him a better character by almost removing all of his super jerk tendencies. He's still a jerk but atleast he's likeable

Technically, Bruce isn't a total teetotaler. He has on rare occasions had a solemn drink with Alfred and Dick. I will try to find the issue.

Not the liberal jerk that teamed with Hal Jordan, Not the One that apeared on Longbow Hunters or in Quiver.

Winnicks has destroyed the character and Krul has delivered the final blow, THIS IS NOT OLLIE, In fact since Winnick the little details like his love for red hot chilli have been forgoten.

Of course no one blamed Cass for what Beechen made her do, But in Ollie's case every body is going to judge over the last eight or ten years. I admit Ollie is a jerk and sometimes a dick, and many dont like him, but many dont really know him.

The "im not going to work with an assessin" would have worked If Ollie hadnt been asosiated with Shado or the Shade in the past. Yeah Ollie can be a hypocrite and surely would say something judgamental (to Batman mainly), But taking it that seriously? Shooting Cass? pfft, He would simply not care enough.

Cassandra and her "Network" was one of the good things to come out of the "Battle for the Cowl" (which is an almost unreadable story IMO). Yet another of the multitude of dropped opportunities for Cass when it came to DC. I would have bought the heck out of that book.

The only thing I really took away from this was puzzlement at why Cass wears so much lipstick under her mask.
