    Not really sold on the ponytail weapon, honestly. Just seems too gimmicky and impractical, but I guess that's comics.

    Interested in seeing how Shiva ties into Dick's past, but nothing really new revealed in the article.

    She obviously has no relevance to the upcoming story.

    And being that Shiva is deaged it's possible she may not even exist yet or may even be too young to be actively involved in her mother's work.
    Characters come and go, revamped and revisited. But as long as you enjoyed them, remember them and continue to appreciate them, then that character, your hero or heroine, will always exist.

    Its DC. You can easily accelerate Cass's aging.

    I think Didio at least has been clear that while Cassandra and Stephanie may come back, it isn't going to happen soon.

    Lady Shiva was a great character on Birds of Prey. However, she was sort of tied to Black Canary through their training with the same master. I wonder how this writer is going to use her with Nightwing. She was a great character in BOP and wasn't evil as much as a ruthless killer that didn't feel bound to much of any morality, good or bad.

    How is a ruthles killer not bound by any morality not evil? Besides, Shiva was very bound by morality. She was all about morality. It just asn't our classical good/evil morality.

    'Mm,' she agreed. 'He's a little bit dodgy in the same way that rats are a little bit covered in fur."

    I love Lady Shiva, but a weaponized ponytail???. She's one of most deadliest fighters in the world. She doesn't need weapons, just her hands. Please don't mess up one of my favorite characters.

    I'm not a fan of Defalco but I always like him teasing crossovers(not actually doing crossovers(Such as Superboy in the "culling".)
    DC/Marvel reader. Mostly Superman,Batman,X-Men,Avengers fan...guess I am a fan of most comics.

    Looks like DC are sticking firmly to their current adage "If it ain't broke... try and fix it anyway."

    "The Tardis, when working properly, is capable of many amazing things. Not unlike myself."

    Birds of Prey. Before Simone's second run where Huntress managed to stand up to a beating from her after getting a reaction from splashing Shiva's face. And before the run with Tim knocking her out with doped chocolates.

    As it is, I'm looking forward to this. Couldn't care less about the removal of her status as Cass' mother, because frankly, she was always the least important piece of that puzzle, to me; Cass got everything she needed from her father and his style of training.
