Rather than give the usual "big plans", Nightwing writer Kyle Higgins gave an actual honest answer to the fan favorite character's future in DC.
On his Twitter Wednesday, Nightwing and Gates of Gotham writer Kyle Higgins did something that DC hasn't been known for lately, being actually honest. A fan asked Higgins if there be any hint or appearance of the much requested character, Cassandra Cain, during the upcoming Lady Shiva arc (staring with Nightwing #13 in October). Higgins stated:
- no Cassandra. Sorry :(
Then in the follow-up question if he knew of any plans for the character in DC, Higgins responded:
- I have no idea when she'll appear again. It won't be anytime soon.
So there you have it Cassandra Cain fans. An actual honest answer from a DC creator. No "bring them back in a way that really matters" or saying they have an "important future role for the character in a book" . Just a straight answer! If only more DC creators would be honest about Wally West, Stephanie Brown, and others.
