    if there's a Cass solo series today, what kind of tone it will take?
    Dark? Think Batman with a focus on assassin and mercenary?
    Cute? Like Burnside?
    Dark-cute? Like... gothic lolita, Baby Metal aesthetic?
    ...now I wanna see Cass in that outfit

    I think it really depends on who writes it. Hill would write it dark. Tynion probably dark-cute, but maybe just dark. I don't know who would write it cute. That just seems wrong.

    Something akin to the tone and style of her old solo. Preferably with something more like her old costume instead of the current one.

    I don’t need her to necessarily operate as Batgirl again, but I really hope she gets a new identity. She needs to wear the symbol of the Bat.

    I say give her the Black Bat identity again and her original Batgirl costume. She gets the best costume she's ever worn back and Babs gets to keep the Batgirl name to herself like DC wants.

    I mean you know what they say, if it ain’t broke....

    Cass batgirl has one of the coolest designs in the entire DC universe. It’s a shame we haven’t seen it be used in so long.

    Her Orphan costume has grown on me now that they've added a hood to it. But nothing beats her as Batgirl. That costume was perfection.

    Who were Cass's first villains? As Batgirl, as Orphan, as Black Bat, before she became a superhero

    I remember her fighting a few villain of the weeks in the first issues of her solo. One was a Meta who actually gave her some trouble.

    Her first big villain was Shiva, as I recall.

    Yeah, cute's fine for the other Batgirls, but not for Cass. The other two can cross the whole spectrum from cute to dark, but Cass is an assassin, she's not the sort of person to engage in wacky hijinks.
