Compassion For All

What makes Cassandra Cain extra special for a superhero?

What many people might answer is her fighting ability. She has blinding speed, extraordinary strength for her size, unparalleled martial arts skills, and her specially wired brain allows her to read what opponents are about to do before they even start to do it.

But Cassie’s fighting is just the third most important thing about her. One of the two most important qualities is her combination of learning disabilities and body reading skill. Her brain is like no other and while she has a super power with body reading she also has major communication issues. This is really exceptional for a comic book hero: initially unable to talk and never able to read or write (I’m discounting OYL).

The other most important quality of Cassie’s is compassion. The terrible upbringing she got along with her naive murder at age 8 made Cass fundamentally opposed to killing, hurting, cruelty, and suffering. And her body reading ability would act as the most sensitive detector of someone’s pain, joy, fear, and hope. Cassandra’s empathy was so good it was just short of mind reading.

This is not to say that she never was angry and lashed out. She did. But in many of those cases it was because of terrible crimes like when Cassie was pounding the frak out of assassins who killed the FBI sniper she saved after he called his mom (Batgirl v1-14 2001-05). Or when a crime gang killed a kid’s father and as they fled to their safe room she exploded out of the room and demolished the whole gang (Batgirl v1-34 2003-01).

In these pages, Cass shows her compassion. Batman marvels at her amazing fighting skill but what really amazes him is she just does just enough to put down these killers. He even goes on about how he wouldn’t have minded her pouring on a little more. And the second set of pages is Cassie breaking up a group of kids tossing rats in the air as a game. Notice: as she swoops down she catches the last rat tossed high and gently releases it in the ally. And the last page from #16 is classic Puckett/Scott; the emotions just pour off the page as Cass puts her hand on the kid’s shoulder and bows her head down in solidarity with him.

She Was Gentle
from Batgirl v1-04 2000-07 digital

She was perfect.
Not “good.”
Not “better than expected.”
Perfect.
But that’s not what impressed me.
These people were scum.
But she did just enough to take them out, no more.
She was… gentle. Even with them.
- Batman on Batgirl (Cassandra Cain)

17 Days Until Cassandra Cain Returns

2014.08.17.

夜、お腹ふくらむイイ時間。
大盛り あなたを思い出す。

本日のオトコメシ!
じゃーじゃん!…チキン南蛮!!
急に食べたくなってからさ〜。
甘酢もタルタルも、
お手製だぞう。ぱおーん

なんかやっぱり
ご飯ってちゃんと食べなきゃなあ〜。
って思い始めてからは、
ヨカレヨカレと
ゼイタクしとる気がする。あはは。
まぁ「ちゃんと自分で作ります!」
っていう条件付きで、
自分を許そうじゃないか。ね!
しっかり食べて、また明日。

毎日どこかで誰かの写真を見ながら
ええなあ〜ええなあ〜
すっげえええ写真やなあ〜。
って感動してね。最近は特に多いなあ。
写真が楽しくてさ。

日常も特別も、
撮った人の物語や撮られた人の物語も、
叫ぶ声も 嘆く心も 助けを待つ日も。
希望も、愛も。
そんな何かが写り込んでは、
生きてるようにずっと残っていく。
写真の底はやっぱり見えなくて、
ほんとオモシロイね。すっげえなあ。
うんうん。

僕の写真には、何が見えるのかなあ。
誰かの目にどう映ってるのかなあ。

とか気になっちゃう〜う〜♪
まだまだだな岩本。
ああ、まだまだみたいだ岩本。
イイ日も悪い日も、撮り続けて、
僕も写真も生きていこ〜う♪
ようオヤスミす〜!グウ。

2015.08.17.

お盆休みが終わって
今日からまた仕事が始まった。
朝は少しだけ、昨日までの疲れが
残っていたような気がしたけれど、
仕事に入ってしまえばこれが不思議と
また普段どおりのペースに戻っている。
身体はいつも、頭よりも賢い。

お盆を過ぎれば、
夏ももうあと半分と勝手に思っている。
8月の日付は終盤へ向かっている。

多分これから先に残っている
2015のあらゆる行事も、あっ、と、
それはもうあっ、という間に
迎えては過ぎ、
迎えては過ぎるのだろう。
寂しい気もする。
する、だけかもしれない。

夕方の土砂降りのおかげで、
今日は少しだけ涼しい。
扇風機を回してじっくり寝る。
