I made a post a while ago about Cass being ace and I just wanted to expand on that. Being ace myself, I recognise similar traits in Cass and well tbh I just want some representation! Cass being ace doesn’t mean she can’t have relationships, she’s just not all that interested in the sex part. Romantic attraction is different to sexual attraction, you see. She may find a loving partner or she could be perfectly happy being single (like me!). I don’t particularly ship her with anyone and I think that’s ok. I imagine her realising that she’s ace and confiding in her bestie Steph and she is accepted wholeheartedly. She struggles at first. She’s not all that interested in boys, or girls for that matter, and frankly her job doesn’t necessarily support such activities anyway. But the others start thinking it’s weird she’s not interested in boys and Bruce decides to have the ‘talk’ with her (but then he chickens out and recruits Bab’s to help him). Cass tells them that she’s not all that interested in that stuff and confides in them about her asexuality. Even though they don’t fully understand what that means, they tell her they accept her no matter what and that she is valid. When the batboys find out they start making cute little ace jokes that sometimes manages to make Cass crack a smile.
[I’m still thinking of more, but feel free to add more ideas.]
@keeper-of-the-lore pointed out to me some news concerning Detective Comics, that he had gathered from James Tyrion IV’ twitter and other sources. You can see them here and here. Some most important info:
* The second arc will have more guest appearances (Harper will show up in issue #943). The book is going to have changes in the cast, characters will come and go, but it will be focusing primarily on those who do not have their own series at the moment and only they will be getting their own arcs. Bette Kane will be showing up. We can also expect some more obscure villains.
* Just like the first arc focused on Kate, the second will focus on Steph and Clayface.The third will focus on Cass and touch upon her past trauma, being neurodivergent and her family. It will include Lady Shiva.
