The Batfamily Reunited This Week, Except for One: Let’s Not Forget Batgirl Cassandra Cain

One of the more easily pointed to examples of sexism in the New 52 concerned which of the five characters to be called Robin and three characters to be called Batgirl made it to the new continuity. Editorial explained to fans that two Batgirls would be erased from the setting so the “most iconic” one, Barbara Gordon, could be returned to the costume, to make things simple for new readers. However, in the other Batcave locker room, all four of the male characters who had been Robin were brought over to the New 52, despite the new universe having a hard age limit of five years from the first appearance of Batman.

This week saw one of those women (spoiler for Batman #28) Stephanie Brown, the third Batgirl and fourth Robin, return to comics as the Spoiler in a sneak preview of the next story arc to engulf Gotham City and the Batman-related titles. And while I’m very excited to have her back, I worry about Cassandra Cain, the first person of color to join the Batfamily, who is now that last Batgirl sitting on the bench with the rest of the New 52′s abandoned heroes.

Are The Birds Of Prey Set For An Appearance On Arrow Season 2?

We already had a Birds of Prey television show. While it wasn’t quite what everyone would have hoped for, I stand by my love for it. The next time we saw Black Canary was on Smallville and that’s all I have to say about that. But last season on Arrow we were introduced to Huntress and we know a new Canary will appear in Season 2. Can they complete the trifecta and get us a Barbara Gordon for a new Birds of Prey team? Hit the jump to find out!
