One Perfect Moment: Nyssa
While the time she killed her father and took over the League of Assassins was pretty cool, Nyssa's One Perfect Moment is when she tries to talk Cassandra Cain out of being so dependent on Batman's way of doing things.
Oh, and this Nyssa is Ra's Al Ghul's daughter, not The Doctor's companion (the youngest companion so far). That Nyssa's perfect moment was deciding to stay on Terminus to help the people there and turn it into a working hospital. She even kissed (!) the Doctor good-bye.
Nyssa has kidnapped Batgirl during Infinite Crisis and tries the whole "join me" bit. Of course, Nyssa's idea is that if Batgirl helps, the world will become a better place. By killing all the superheroes. Kind of like WANTED, only they didn't bother making the world a better place.
Pop Mhan did this artwork. He also did the art for Spyboy.
I really like this scene. Nyssa is making a good if warped point about how a superhero can really make the world a better place beyond just beating up criminals. Nyssa was tortured by Dr. Josef Mengele, which explains a lot about her "I wish someone had killed Hitler, Stalin and Amin" POV.
This scene and the final storyline in Batgirl could be why Cass decided to go evil in ROBIN #150. Her going "Punisher lite" could have made sense without Deathstroke Insanity Serum if this was brought into the equation.
