Thanks everyone for the info. I was going to buy that game and hopefully use the Black Bat Cass, or atleast create her. Now I'll buy NCAA Football 2013 instead:)
Is there any recent new about Cass's role in the new DCU? Isn't she supposed to be in Batman Inc.? It almost seem like DC is writing Damian like Cass should be written only a little less mature.
IMO Damian is Cass done right.
Casss is Damian, except with better skills, and enough of a soul that she could figure out on her own thet killing people is bad, and didn't need to be told this. Despite being raised to be an assassin.
What people forget, and recent writers always get wrong, is that Batman had absolutely zero influence on her decission to not be an assassin.
'The marquis. Well, you know, to be honest, he seems a little bit dodgy to me.'
'Mm,' she agreed. 'He's a little bit dodgy in the same way that rats are a little bit covered in fur."
But the key part is here...
CRAVE ONLINE: Fair enough - although this also begs the obligatory question of whether or not there is a chance Cassandra Cain or Stephanie Brown will show up in this?
SNYDER: (laughs) That's the obligatory question I was trying to answer in a sidewinding way.
CRAVE ONLINE: I thought so, but I thought I'd try to clarify that anyway.
SNYDER: What I would clarify is that I promise you, as soon as Cassandra Cain and Stephanie Brown are characters that are okay to reintroduce, that have stories that Warner Bros. and DC want to use, I'll be the first person to write them. I loved writing Cassandra Cain in Gates of Gotham, and Stephanie Brown in Bryan Miller's Batgirl was one of my absolute favorite series. I adore them as much as you do, but those decisions are just above my pay grade. I don't know what else to tell you.
CRAVE ONLINE: In that case, how big an influence is Warner Bros. on your creative direction, then?
SNYDER: Nothing. They've been great about totally not getting involved and giving us total creative latitude with Batman. They've never asked us to use things for the movie. DC has been wonderfully generous, too. I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop, but nobody has said 'you can't do these horrible, bloody, terrible things to Bruce or the Bat-family or anything.' So I just keep going! (laughs)
Behold, I shall be a blight upon the land, and everything I touch shall wither and die!
Holmes said Damian is Cass done right, and you said that was because Beechen hasn't written him and because editorial likes him? So what, Cass never had a series before Beechen, or an issue that wasn't written by Beechen, and editorial somehow affected the execution of the character before then?
Meh, Damian and Cass are different enough for me. One thing though, people are playing up Cass's refusal to be an assassin in comparison to Damian, but I feel like while Damian was raised to be an assassin, Cass to me was more raised as a weapon. So I can see why it would be more difficult to Damian.
Also, anybody else see that Shiva is going to be in Nightwing down the road? It's what I'm expecting, but it'll be so weird seeing them interact with Cass not coming up at all.
I disagree heavily with that Damian is Cass done right, or that even Cass wasn't done right already. I like Damian but like Carabas said, he needed someone to tell him that killing is bad, and even then he doesn't seem that convinced. Cass seems like much more of an interesting character to me, mainly because she is someone that completely went against the programing that was tortured into her from her birth, pain is all she knows but she still rejected that life.
IMO if anything Damian is closer to the pre-Death in the Family Jason Todd done right.
...And does Mr. Goddanm Batman says so much as ''Thanks''? OF COURSE not. That'd hardly be GRIM AND GRITTY, would it?
