Batgirl: Redemption |
by Adam Beechen, Jim Calafiore (DC Comics, 2009)
Cassandra was raised to be an assassin by her father, killer David Cain, but she's supposedly reformed and all the side of right. Oh wait, no, now she's set out -- wearing the Bat suit, and using Bat resources -- to kill Cain, as well as his partner in crime, Slade "Deathstroke" Wilson. She's hiding her activities from Batman, she's enlisted Oracle (the original Batgirl) to assist her, and she exchanges blows with Nightwing and fires on Batman when they try to stop her.
There are some good appearances by various members of the Bat family, but Batgirl is the star of the book, and her appearances here are just not satisfying.
And, honestly, does the girl even try to maintain a secret identity?
