I really hope people read Cassandra Cain’s comics after the Birds of Prey movie. The movie was good but when it comes to Cassandra’s character the movie was a huge disserve to her character. Not just by erasing her disabilities but her whole character was completely changed in the movie to the point that they’re not even the same person. Black Canary and Huntress were pretty close to the way they are in the comics but not Cassandra Cain. It was really ablest of them to erase her disabilities in the movie.
It’s a shame cause Cassandra is a really interesting character and it would of been awesome to see her accurately portrayed in a movie. She’s one of the strongest hand to hand fighters. She’s one of the few women of color to have a long comic run. She’s a important part of the Bat family especially before the New 52. Ever since she became Black Bat and the New 52 her character has been mistreated. It doesn’t help that one of the publisher at DC hates her even though she’s a big character. Her portray in the Birds of Prey movie is a good example that DC doesn’t care about her even she has a big fanbase. The graphic novel Shadow of the Batgirl is the closest she’s been portrayed right in years. Cassandra is the best Batgirl. She’s good Asian representation and good disabled representation. Her comics have been reprinted into trades so her comics aren’t hard to find. Everyone needs to read her comics.
