While I am very stoked about the new Batgirl series and Babs Tarr joining the book, I can’t help but think this would be a perfect opportunity to reintroduce Cass Cain.
We know that Babs has been going through some difficult times dealing with her father being framed for murder and her believing that Dick is dead. It wouldn’t be completely crazy for her to decide that she’s tired of being Batgirl and that she can do more good putting her brain to work as an operative. She can retire the mantle and then pass it on to Cass Cain.
This would also give them the opportunity to reboot Birds of Prey with Oracle as their leader. Gail Simone could write the book, and I believe if she’s allowed to write like she was in the past without all these mandates that the book could be really successful.
Just let Barbara grow up, DC.
