Something that makes me somewhat sad is how limiting Cass's current name is. I just can't see her doing a solo series as Orphan, but hopefully I'll be wrong.

I get the feeling she won't be keeping the name. One of the bits this issue was about how she's not alone, after all.

Also, Cass smacktalking Shiva is glorious.

Orphan is a dumb name...Even black Bat was better.

It is a better name, but the problem with it is. Say if they give Cass an ongoing, one-shot, or mini. They can't use that identity sine Dynamite Comics owns the rights to Black Bat (it was the name of a pulp character).

While this is a very good story, I do wonder what kind of kids books they have in Gotham that have morals that parallel Cassandra's life!

I mean, a young adult novel akin to Hunger Games I could see, but this was a bedtime story ^^

Still, "this girl was in a horrible situation and she learned from a witch until she used those dark skills to escape," is a really odd pick for bedtime reading!

Bit darker than Sorcerer's Stone, y'know?

Sure, but those are grandfathered in to an extent, and do use animals and such, and don't exactly have the children learning to be more like the monster...

... ok granted Hansel and Gretel *did* burn a witch alive so maybe there, but they didn't, like, learn witchcraft first.

I still find 'the girl who became a shadow' a very odd name for a fairy tale ^^

Oh no, you were fine, you presented your points in a solid manner :)

The book seems to be written by Carolyn Woosan too. A bit of an unlikely coincidence there as well.

There are no coincidences. Only Easter Eggs that continue a trend that Steve Orlando started and that Tynion has picked up on to use.

For a second I had a vision that she'd choose "Shadow"...only to hear an insane laugh all around her and find Lamont Cranston standing there looking very displeased.

Maybe Doc Savage. Cassandra does open clinics of PAIN to her foes.

maybe Shadowbat

Eh, it's been done

Ha, ha, I was thinking along those lines myself!

"What evil lurks in the hearts of men? Only the Shadow knows! Bwahahahha!"

This was such a great payoff to Cass's arc all the way from B&RE until now. Seeing her fully realize that she's not broken and worthless and accepting that she has a new, supportive surrogate family gave me chills.

The enormous "fuck you" she gives to Shiva by tearing through all her goons without killing them on the way to rescue her friends was just icing. And the rest of the team sucking up all their injuries to assemble and ready themselves to kick some Shiva ass... ugh, this run has been so damn good.

Oh, look: the Cassandra Cain I remember.

I can forgive a lot when something is done well like this.

hmmm.... so she's lurking making sure they don't mess up? I don't think it's cool that she actively goes around trying to mess things up. Like the batsignal. but I DO like the idea of her keeping tabs, and taking part, to make sure they don't screw up. but I want her back (I thought they said she was going to play a big part in the hunt for tim)

and yes bruce. yes. you SHOULD have let them grieve.

For some odd reason everytime I think where Stephanie is at currently in her new status quo is basically like this:
