Default Fate of Batgirl *SPOILERS*

See this? *points to eye* That's a tear. I'm cryin' here... Because you see, I've seen the solicit for Robin #149. It reads:

"Robin: Boy Wanted" continues as the Teen Titan must break into a police station to uncover evidence that may - or may not - clear him of killing one of Batman's allies.

And what do we see? A picture of Cassandra Cain's Batgirl costume. I'm cryin' here, people. Because it looks like she's going to die. Will anyone else by sad besides me?

I noticed that too. Seems all signs point to her bitting the dust, but we'll see. It's good to know that Robin will have some impact on the Batverse other than being just Batman's sidekick. I can't wait.

I'm going to take a wait and see on the Cassandra question.

BUT what really bugs me about that cover? Robin looking like he is 12.

The one part of the OYL jump that I was most skeptical on - where I wondered if DC really was going to bite the bullet or wimp out - was whether we'd see the teen characters actually age. While the difference between 28 and 29 doesn't mean all that much, the difference in a teenager is significant.

I was kind of hoping they'd also use that OYL gap to move some of the characters to a more adult footing and spare us the "very special issue" where Robin finally discovers what girls are for.

However, at least from that cover (which is, of course, not definitive proof), that DC will wimp out the next birthday Robin mentions will be his '16th.' (again).

Holy god....

What if Ravager dies and Cassandra impersonates Ravager the way Ravager impersonated her?!? That could explain why she's on the Teen Titans.

The cover is by Ed McGuiness...he makes everyone look like their twelve...except his women. Their twelve on steriods. So dont judge the character by his cover (to paraphrase) it's only one artist's representation.

There's a link to Tony Daniel's blog in one of the threads on the Titans page that has some pencils from TT post OYL. Tony does an amazing Robin. Go check that out.

Cassandra is gonna be alive and well.... Too cool of a character to let just go like that.... I see her either staying as Batgirl and joining the Birds of Prey or adopting a new identity to hide from her mother that is gonna be reveil shortly... next issue I think....

Isn't the last issue of Batgirl out this coming week? The holiday will push it back to Thursday. So her fate may be decided there.

Okay people I have a theory

Batgirl for some reason asks Robin to help fake her death because she did something bad (like killing shiva, or Nyssa)Robin does so but because of doing so he[gets the the blame for her death. later everyone finds out that cass is still alive, and Cass becomes Batwoman.

Hey it could happen

I'll be sad if she dies, Cassandra is a great character and has really come into her own under Gabrych.
