Ah, Beechen’s Cass Cain. So badly written and more than a smidge racist.
Wait, that’s a flintlock pistol, generally they only have one shot, so after it went off that one time, how was Tim going to shoot David Cain at that point?
And here we see the most apparent problem with evil Cass…
IT COULD HAVE WORKED! Having Cass become a ROGUE, operating OUTSIDE THE BATFAM because she had lost faith in them, could have worked great! But instead they made her a Dragon Lady type completely inexplicably and try to become top dog in the very organization both her parents worked for, that she RAN AWAY TO AVOID BECOMING A PART OF, which OPPOSED HER ADOPTED FAMILY FOR YEARS, because…being a member of the League of Assassins is a hereditary thing? It’s just hardwired into some kids’ genes because of who their parents are?
See…if they were going to make Cass go bad, they should have made her a Red Hood type, and kept Jason Todd dead.
Also there’s no way she a fight loses to Tim Drake (just none and I like Tim). If Cass was to become a super-villian she would be on Deathstroke level (or at least Cain+Lady Shiva level) and would DC let Tim beat Deathstroke in a straight-up fight. Let’s face it Cass can straight up take out any of the Robins and that’s the problem when making her a villain just so she can be a Robin rogue (especially Tim). Also, no matter what weird crap Beechan and Tomasi/Berganza made up to justify themselves there’s no way Cass would harm any of the Bat-Crew. They were her family. Until Beechan she couldn’t even bring herself to kill Shiva or Cain.
