shobogan: (Batgirl and Robin)
[personal profile] shobogan



This post is about the relationship between Onyx Adams and Cassandra Cain, two of Gotham's most formidable defenders. Two people who found redemption, purpose, and friendship.

"She was an assassin once. Like my father. Like Shiva. Like...me. She understands."

Don't get your hopes up, it's an old scene, but one I don't think we have here, so here it is. The longer version of this scene features Onyx decently as well, but I just wanted to fangirl Cass for tonight, so I'll leave that part to some other time/person.

Three pages from Batgirl #57.

You want the Bat? )

This is important. Watch the video (starting around the 34 minute mark), or read the synopsis.

No directly insulting any members of the DC staff either, I want this thread to stay put and not get locked and stuff.

In short, Dylan Horrocks is awesome, and Steph being Robin was just DC messing with us, apparently )

Be warned this post is going to have sixteen scans (of four issues). Oh and this is the infamous story involving Cassandra Cain written by Adam Beechen (Robin #148-149 plus Batgirl #52 & 73). You'll probably find yourself a member of the Red Lantern Corp after reading these scans if you're a fan of Cassandra Cain or Tim Drake. You've been warned.

Due to the previous two issues of the new Batgirl series seem to have Oracle being... somewhat abrasive towards the title character, I've decided to post this (trunkated) story where Barbara is mean to Cass as well.
A bit from Batgirl 54 and 67 )

So we enter the era of Robin!Steph! I have mixed feelings about this era. Steph was Robin because she was going to die. Therefore, she was set up to fail. And die. The story of her Robinness was ridiculously contrived and OOC because Willingham can't write any DC characters worth a damn, IMO. BUT, it was also fun. Steph as Robin was good fit, we got a good Detective Comics and "Batgirl and Robin" story out of it.

Then she died. And didn't get a memorial. And the fans protested. And we got her back.

If Stephanie hadn't become Robin, fans wouldn't have noticed how stupid and misogynist and cheapdrama!!!111 her death was, and how badly she was treated as much. And we probably wouldn't have gotten her back as soon as we did. And a lot of fans discovered her because of her becoming Robin, and her death, including me.

So all in all, I'm glad Steph was Robin. Let's look over the six stories where she got to be wonderfully Robin-y, shall we?

In my last post, someone anonymous told me I should post War Games and the Ghost!Steph stuff. Now, I would not post 99% of War Games unless you put a gun to my head, not to mention I only own two War Games-y issues- Batgirl #56 and Robin #130. Robin #130 was purchased for me by my Dad, on the basis it was an issue of Robin, and I have it stuffed somewhere in the comics box without a bag to protect it. War Games is the antithesis of why I'm doing these posts- to show Steph being cool and Steph-ish. War Games shows Steph flailing, crying, acting like an idiot, and being tortured gratuitously, all because the editorial at the time hated her/thought she was disposable. Most likely hated her, since there's a fine line between disposing of a character and making sure they die horribly, and as a fuck-up.

But, there is a point- the ghost stuff was pretty good. Cassandra was the only character who seemed to really grieve for Steph, or rather, Anderson Gabrych was the only writer who respected the character of Steph enough to acknowledge her existance and importance to those she left behind. So, we're going to post a tiny portion of War Games, five pages where Cass sees Steph for the last time pre...what happened. As well as some other relevant scans. Then, we're going to explore Steph as a spirit and the reaction Cass had to Steph's "death." Because it's good, moving stuff. Warning, though, it's pretty sad too.
