Q
Just listened to the past WRA and appreciated the Multiversity discussion. After hearing Matt also pronounce Nix Uotan as Wo-tan I felt needed to make this joke to the one human I am certain will get it. Ahem "Uotan again?"

ASK CHRIS #210: THE STRANGE SAGA OF BATGIRL CASSANDRA CAIN
By Chris Sims
Q: Cassandra Cain: WTF happened? — @IamMedellin

A: Here’s the least shocking thing you’re going to read this week: I love Cassandra Cain. That probably goes without saying, given that she’s a relatively obscure member of the Batman family that made her debut when I was a teenager, but really, it goes deeper than that. She came out of the gate with a compelling edge, some phenomenally solid storytelling, and a hook for drama that put her in contrast to the rest of Gotham’s assorted heroes and hangers-on, while still feeling like a natural compliment to the other characters. And then, less than a decade later, she’d gone from being a new character with an incredible amount of potential to an also-ran who only really shows up to fill space in crossovers — something that almost never happens to characters in the Batman family, especially when they’ve got 70+ solo issues under their utility belts.
So what happened? Man, I can’t even tell you, I just read the darn things. But folks, it got really weird there at the end.
