Batgirl Beyond RULE 63 by PaulSizer Batgirl Beyond RULE 63 by PaulSizer
RULE 63 version of BATMAN BEYOND, one of my favorite costume designs ever. Maybe this is what Cassandra Cain can be in the New DC 52 universe...

BATMAN BEYOND is ęDC Comics

Cassandra would be absolutely perfect. People seem to forget about her. Everyone wants Stephanie back, but no one's really pushing for Cassandra. Which is sad... I adore her and find her very relatable.

I wonder whether that's partly due to Steph fitting a bit more easily into the mainstream's mental picture of Batgirl: cute, peppy & spunky, if a bit inexperienced. Cass, by contrast, had the face-kicking aspect of heroism on lock, though her social & linguistic issues were a recurring Achilles' heel. Frankly, the Batclan already had & has plenty of scrappy whitebread kids, so benching Ms. Cain strikes me as a misguided step back.

Oh, don't we wish. For one thing, the Beyond suit's low-drag layout & nifty synapse-activated features (wings, boot-jets, etc.) seem tailor-made for a character as resolutely physical & instinctive as Cass. For another...well, there's just something about a full-face Batcowl(TM), to say nothing of that black-widow color combo. Finally, from what memory & a VHS copy of Return of the Joker have lent me, the Beyond-verse is set far enough forward to give most of those legacy-Batketeers their time in the spotlight before the next generation steps up.

Oh, lest I forget: see if this track doesn't put you in the mood to visualize Mme. Cain cutting loose: [link]

Definitely. Someone needs to really make good use of Cass' character somehow; she's gotten sloppy seconds for the last few years, and it's a damn shame. The BEYONDverse has a lot of potential that I hope DC is smart enough to use properly.

Not the least of which would be a fresh, vicious & surprisingly gender-balanced rogues' gallery. Ten's kinda got that Catwoman dynamic going opposite Batman II, Curare's as relentless as she is enigmatic, and Inque's sorta what you get powers-wise when Venom meets Mr. Fantastic. Heck, Beyond even reintroduced Taila al Ghul...with her dad in the mental drivers' seat. Brr.
