Nyssa al Ghul, aka Nyssa Raatko, wasn't in the Bat-universe for very long, even though I think she had a lot of potential. As Talia's half-sister and Ra's al Ghul's daughter, she had all of Talia's charms without any "Oh, beloved!" stuff when it came to Batman. And she had a real plan to deal with the Secret Society during INFINITE CRISIS.

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.

While the time she killed her father and took over the League of Assassins was pretty cool, Nyssa's One Perfect Moment is when she tries to talk Cassandra Cain out of being so dependent on Batman's way of doing things.

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.

Batgirl #54, #55, #56, #58, #61, #62, #72 and #73
