Something awesome and wonderful has happened to Stephanie Brown
at the expense of something awesome and wonderful to Cassandra Cain. It's that simple. You don't have to make bad Cass to make good Steph or vice versa. Steph could have stayed Spoiler and I would have loved a team up title with the two of them.
And y'know what...it's happened before. It's happened over and over and over again. Hal and Barry. Jaime Reyes. Renee Montoya.
One died saving the multiverse after 29 years.
Another died telling an evil overlord to rot in hell and refusing to give in after 39 years.
Another died continuing his philosphical journey to answer every question after 39 years.
Another died (while the first part of Hal's death was fucking moroning, the second part was awesome) reigniting the sun after 35 years.
Another quit after 10 years, the last 3 years having been filled to the brim with awful plots and characterization that completely defied things that specifically were said before.

And choose to begin your scale with "meh, whatever".
