Cass is better than all of them.
I love this scene. It also explains why the “I can’t be Batgirl anymore without Brooooose!” scene was bullshit.
Yep. If anyone should have inherited the mantle, it was Cass.
Dick never wanted it, and as much as he brought something new and good to Batman, his nature is being Robin. When Bruce chose Jean Paul the first time around, Dick only got mad for being skipped over because of his personal issues with Bruce. It was his “what am I to you” thing, and not any wish to be Batman.
Tim, on the other hand, would make a good Batman, since he’s more bat than bird. Bruce knew it, and actually planned to make him Batman one day and told him so. However, Tim didn’t want it. Tim never wants to be Batman.
Cass is the only one who feels what being the Bat is about in the same way Bruce does. I don’t think anyone else could understand it in the way the two of them did. Cass is Bruce’s true heir to the Bat. Moreover, she wanted it. She told Babs being the Bat was all she wanted.
So basically DC sucks.
I will just cry forever over how perfect this issue is.
Everything I ever wanted.
