  1. I’m pretty much resigned to the broken-English Cass being gone, since they have some kind of bizarre respect for Beechen’s terrible stories and refuse to throw them out. If they’re smart, they’ll use this big reboot to return her more to her classic characterization.

    That said, I didn’t hate her in Gates of Gotham. She’s still pretty short on words. Though it does sort of kill me that I can write Cass’s former speech pattern with minimal effort, but no one at DC can anymore.

  2. to David: I was wondering if you were going to put in the show notes the essay about Superman as Wingman.

  3. @Nat: I don’t think it’s respect. I just think that outright throwing out stories, be that contradicting them or erasing them from history, is reserved for big league characters, not mid-list ex-sidekicks. Xorn gets a retcon, Jubilee doesn’t.

  4. @david brothers: Yeah, probably, but they need to find some explanation to return her to her original characterization. The Beechen stories have literally plagued the character for years.

    I’m hope they’ll at least do the “Stephanie Brown soft reboot” where you keep things like her having a baby and being involved in War Games in canon, but just never, ever mention them. But in the case of Cass, it’s more dire because those stories altered her personality.

  5. Black Mask was created in 1985
