Cass Cain Gets New Superhero Identity, Huzzah!
...And thus, Cassandra Cain, former Batgirl and brainwashed supervillain, comes to find herself in a new role within the Bat Family, after finding herself wandering in limbo for some months after retiring to allow her best mate Steph Brown get the promotion to Batgirl some time back.
Yes, Cass is now the presentative of Batman Incorperated in Hong Kong, under the new superheroine alias: BlackBat. The change in locale and costume was previewed back in Red Robin, in which she was wearing a be-scarfed ninja outfit and stuff.
DC did say that this would be a good year for Cass, and considering her coming back in a non-evil role in Batman Inc., Red Robin again and in a main role in the upcoming Gates of Gotham series, that might be somewhat true.
