Passionate Enthusiasts Dedicated Only to Stephanie expand their efforts to bring back another Batgirl: Cassandra Cain.

Passionate Enthusiasts Dedicated Only to Stephanie (P.E.D.O.S.), the group that organized the "Waffles for Stephanie" campaign, in which fans who wanted to see disgraced Batgirl Stephanie Brown in her bra and pan... er, in a Batgirl comic, were to send waffles to DC head honcho Dan Didio's office in order to demonstrate their support and potentially dangerous mental instability, is organizing another campaign, this time for another Batgirl who has been given the shaft by Didio and DC: Cassandra Cain. Cain wore the mask and enticingly tight spandex bodysuit of Batgirl from 1999 to 2009, when she was replaced by Brown and systematically destroyed via character assassination. Cain's Batgirl series, the first solo Batgirl ongoing, ran for 73 issues from 2000 to 2006. Cain, like Brown, has not yet appeared in the DCnU, and if DC management gets its way, she never will.
It is suspected that the Passionate Enthusiasts may be under new leadership, as this campaign proposes that fans pick a day to go on Comixology and purchase Cassandra Cain Batgirl comics
, hopefully propelling the book to the number one sales spot and sending a message to DC that people would pay money for a Cass Cain comic if only DC would produce them. This is a huge change of direction for the Enthusiasts, whose previous efforts have been directed mainly toward crying on the internet, threatening suicide, and the nonsensical sending of frozen breakfast foods via the postal service. The concept that purchasing power will do more to convince a major corporation to produce a product than internet butthurt and eggos is certainly crazy... but it just might work!
If you are one of the legions of disenfranchised P.E.D.O.S. yearning for Cass and Stephanie, The Outhouse urges you to head over to this blog
for more information about the campaign, but only because we're pretty sure you won't heed our urging to go get professional help. The blog has already received almost 600 likes or reblogs on Tumblr. No firm date has been set, but August 31 has been suggested for Cass Cain day.
