15 Amazing Asian Superheroes
Join CBR in celebrating 15 of the coolest Asian heroes in comics!

13. CASSANDRA CAIN

The daughter of two notorious assassins and adopted by Bruce Wayne himself, Cassandra Cain is both a hero and a total badass. Her father David Cain, long-time member of the League of Assassins, conceived her with the purpose of creating the perfect assassin partner for himself, after forcing her mother, Sandra Wu-San, to bear his child. Sandra went on to become Lady Shiva, also one of the world’s deadliest assassins, renowned for killing victims with her bare hands.

Cassandra entered the DC universe in the “No Man’s Land” crossover story line in 1999, where she saves Commissioner Gordon’s life and is given the Batgirl costume with the approval of both Barbara Gordon and Batman. Cassandra also represents an important racial group in that she is of mixed heritage, having both European and Asian blood. Another interesting fact about her is that she’s a martial arts expert despite spending a large portion of her life mute and illiterate. Cassandra has recently taken up a new superhero moniker as Orphan in the pages of “Detective Comics,” by James Tynion IV, Christian Duce and Fernando Blanco, where she recently came into conflict with her estranged mother.

My three favorite Marvel ladies hanging out with my favorite DC lady.

If only we could move Heaven and earth to make a crossover like this possible. 

Or better yet, let’s punch a few holes in the sky in order to make this happen.

P.S: Please feel free to visit me on Pinterest and in particular, the Carol Corps Fan Art board, in order to show your love for all of these ladies.

“You’re not gonna put me in a prison. You’re not gonna put any of us in a prison. You know why? Because you need us.

You’ll know where to find me.”
