We were huge fans of the ninja Batgirl, Cassandra Cain, because it showed just how much butt-kicking a Batgirl could be. Thankfully, Grant Morrison recalled her in his international Magnum Opus, BATMAN INC and cast her as “Black Bat”, the Batman Agent of Hong Kong.
Black Bat was one of the first BATMAN INC figures we made, here:
But when artist Chris Burnham checked our work out, he lamented:
“…[T]he original intent was for Black Bat’s armwraps to be black and tattered as well. So that if you were drawing her like McFarlane or Breyfogle you couldn’t tell where her cape ended and her arms began. But no one ever drew her like I did… my version is on like two pages of the Leviathan Strikes one-shot. But it was a pretty literal scene so I couldn’t go all “demon of the night” on her.”
Whelp, we looked it up and sure enough, there she is:
White tape on a ninja doesn’t make a lot of sense, come to think about it. In fact, we liked it so much we had to go and upgrade to Black Bat v2.0:
Next up? We go sidekick!
