    Default Amalgamated Black Canary = Cassandra Cain + Dinah Lance

    This made-up combo character gets the Composite feats of both Cassandra Cain and Dinah Lance.

    Where would such a person rank in Rumbles?

    How far does she get before she gets dropped?

    Which Cassandra? Original, or Nu52?

    Edit: Also, what gear?

    Pre-new52 Cassandra Cain of course

    Post-Crisis for both Cass and Dinah. Gets Cass' standard utility belt and Dinah's ... fishnets. No teleporting gear.

    Okay, so really it's 'Cassandra who can now talk perfectly normally and has the Canary Cry'. Dinah adds nothing more to the equation other than bad choice of clothing -- Cass is above her in skill, speed, hitting power, toughness, equipment, etc etc.

    Does she get further in Rumbles? Sure. The Canary Cry gives her a powerful area attack or focused attack that's strong enough to take out some metahumans. She's now capable of curbstomping Shang Chi with ridiculous ease, and even beating up Spiderman (Cry IS going to mess him up, he can't dodge something omnidirectional, she's fully capable of avoiding his webbing long enough to get the Cry started, and she can hit pressure points on him all day long while he's wobbly from the Cry).

    It won't help a lot against people like Iron Fist, mind, because Danny is at least as fast, if not faster, and can slam out his own, more powerful area attack to take her out.

    I was about to say, this almost turns her into a diet coke version of Iron Fist. At least as Rumbles goes.

    I would go with 'half the calories' rather than '1 calorie'. Give her the Cass-umi gear, and she shoots past him.

    I was kinda hoping she would have those options to be honest.

    Give her those and....yeesh, let's toss 'intangibility, teleportation, and dimension-dumping capacity' on top of the Cry and her own, natural abilities.

    Better than a utility belt she rarely uses.

    .....

    I'm seeing her teleporting away from an Iron Fist blast, screaming at her shadow, and Danny getting torn up by the sonic blast coming out of his own shadow.

    So, which preexisting MU/DCU super-villains would best match up with this Cassandra (with normal vocab and Canary Cry)... as in put up a very good fight?
