    Well, the year's off to a bad start for Cassie, isn't it? Bendis's Young Justice is cancelled, so she's in limbo, and Yara Flor is taking over the Wonder Girl mantle, and getting a TV show under that name to boot. What'll happen to Cassie? Seems to me like she'll be needing a new codename when next she shows up.

    Well, she was on the big cast page for the new creative team, so hopefully that's an indicator of something...

    Last year wasn't much better with Tom Taylor making her arm candy for Damian if we're being honest.

    I never understood why DC thought "Diana has to be SPECIAL, Zeus has all these kids but she is the only one who can be a star" so taking away Zeus being her father to make Diana "special" just to downplay Cassie. The one thing that can tie the two strongly together and they dont do it.

    She's like Barbara, always paired up with someone from the Supe/Bat fam. She's dated Kon, Tim, and now Damien? Even if its part of a different continuity it's still yikes.

    Here's hoping that she isnt completely forgotten now that her title of Wonder Girl will be taken away. Also age her back up.

    I actually kind of preferred Cassie's pre-Zeus retcon way of getting her powers as a normal teen who had the spine of steel to ask the King of the Gods for powers. But you are right in that making them both daughters of Zeus could have been a good way to make them closer has been wasted.

    I mean, just wait to they get to Jason and Damian to complete the set.

    It's kinda like... which one is the most well known character? Well, let's give them everything, and it doesn't matter if it comes from the other characters since they come under the same brand, under her. The headline of the brand is Diana, so she owns everything.

    Marvel is like that too when they give MCU Peter Parker Miles' best friend.

    Just caught up on DCeased Dead Planet and 6 issues in and Cassie is pretty much a gloried extra with a few lines here or there but not being allowed to really do anything beyond looking after others. As a member of the Trinity for the book, its very disappointing.

    Well, it is Tom Taylor. If he ain't writing Diana decently, ain't no way was Cassie getting better treatment.
