...dead as a doornail (whatever that means in comics).

Now, I know plenty of you here will be happy to hear this, but I think she went out like a punk. in other words, she died a lame, useless and pathetic death because DC thinks that is the only way to remove a character from the books. I'm not a big fan of Cass, and I've only picked up her book lately because I knew she was going to die and I wanted to see how it happened, but I don't see her death making any sense at all. Am I to believe that one of the world's greatest fighters would sooner jump in front of a knife than disarm the attacker? Stupid and only proves that even the most relevent characters can be made disposable.

At least it appears to be a somewhat permanent death - Tim is going to be framed for her murder OYL. I don't think it'll be meaningless, as it'll probably turn Shiva "away from the darkside." There is a BatWOMAN series starting up soon and my money is on her heading it up.

You mean DC finally do something wonderful and kill Batgirl, then they want to go and undo all their good work by starting up Batwoman? This is typical of them, bloody typical.

Im all for DC going back to the "loner" Batman. Robin is fine and could even stand to be in fewer Batman books. Characters such as Batgirl III and the Spoiler are doing nothing to furthur expand the Batman Universe.

Okay, so she's not dead anymore. She's just on the lame now. I think she was probably better off a corpse.

Wait, what happened. I don't read Batgirl because the character sucks, is she really not dead? I think I'll cry if she's not dead.

I was under the impression that this was the current state of the pits:

1) Ra's last pit sealed away by Batman.
2) Batman's created pit in Cave (was Ra's Year One even in continuity though?)
3) The reusable pits from Death and the Maidens that nobody else knows about yet.

Hence no pit to use... So how did she do it?

Please say she wont be Batwoman! It would be the worst mistake DC have made since bringing Jason Todd back.


ps - Why the hell do they let Batgirl live but kill Steph? And I'd only just started liking her when she became Robin.

I'm guessing that one. Shiva's been working with Nyssa, and Shiva dumped her in it.

Ah, that makes sense. Lame.

Still, if they are going to do something I hate, at least they don't make it another bloody plot hole!
