Okay if Ra’s took the time to track down people like fucking Julie Madison, then why the fuck would he not go after Cassandra Cain – Bruce’s adopted daughter daughter and the former Batgirl! Is it because DC’s editors are asshats?! I think so. But anyways, this was a great way to end Yost’s run on the title and bring Tim full circle. This began as the story of Tim going in a direction too dark for the character but Yost has brought him back to Gotham and back to his old self. Hell they even made the costume more his. Yost’s run was great. I am certainly glad To is sticking around but I will miss Christopher Yost on this book.

So Ra’s Al Ghul and his League of Assassins are going after every member of the Bat family…except for Cassandra Cain!!! Seriously pissed off after DC apparently lied to Cass fans in their DC Nation column and what’s his face at Wonder Con said there are no plans for Cass any time soon. Why does the Bat Family not care where she is? What the hell is going on here? Why is there no mention that Bruce’s adopted daughter is missing? I am going to fucking scream! AHHHHH! But anyways this was a pretty awesome issue.

A Fun Trip Through Batman’s History

After last issue being a semi-disappointment, I was looking forward to Morrison clearing up some things in this issue. And er….it doesn’t. But by no means is this a bad issue, because it is great. Morrison explains how many of the Silver Age tales fit into modern continuity, even the original Batwoman. About Batwoman, I wonder if she is the mother of the current one. As in 52, she was referred to as Katherine the Younger as if there was an older Kathy Kane in her family. Or I have read a theory that this is the current Batwoman (maybe she died her hair red) who broke Batman’s heart when she came out to him. I guess it remains to be seen which of these theories are correct. All of the stuff that ties into Final Crisis is kind of confusing. How did we get from the end of R.I.P to what is going on with Bruce in Final Crisis. Will that be explained? By the way, I absolutely hate this Alex Ross cover and I can’t put my finger on why. Maybe because it is another glorifying the silver age cover, but that can’t be because that fits the tone of this issue. I think it’s the green. Makes the whole thing ugly. Hopefully next issue, we will see Batman’s history since Dick became Nightwing.
