11. So there’s still a role for the second generation characters who took the role while their mentors were not in it?
DD: There will be an enormous role for them moving forward. There’s a big role for them now – Kyle is in Green Lantern Corps, so he’s never been marginalized; Wally and Connor, and even Cassandra Cain will be appearing throughout the year, and will be seen in roles where they really have a chance to shine.
Or be dragged through the mud, depending on how you approach it.
15. While I have a feeling this will be another non-confirmation, non-comment answer, still – what can be said about the upcoming Batgirl miniseries? You mentioned Cassandra Cain earlier...can we at least get an idea of who it is in the title role?
DD [laughs] Why do you think she wears a mask? She doesn’t want anyone to know who she is. Seriously, I don’t want to spoil any of the excitement that’s coming up in Battle for the Cowl or Oracle: The Cure that are both coming out, but I have to say that there are plenty of clues as to who the next Batgirl will be and what her mission statement will be in her series.
This week-end hurts my tummy and makes me lose my appetite.
