Real Name: Cassandra Cain.
Search for 'Batgirl (03 - Cassandra Cain)' on Amazon


Powers:
One of the best martial artists in the world and reads body language as a first language. Armed with regular Bat gadgets, rarely uses them.

Weaknesses:
Can't read or do basic math.

Bio:
Trained to be the perfect assassin by her father David Cain who taught her to read body language instead of English. She performed her first assassination at age eight, and seeing what she had done, ran away from home.

During No Man's land, she became Batgirl, and later learned English when a psychic rearranged her mind. She had to be retaught her unique ability to read body language by assassin Lady Shiva in exchange for a battle to the death one year later.

Having sworn never to take another life, Cass lost on purpose and had to be revived by Shiva. In the fight afterward, Cass became the first person to ever defeat Shiva, knocking her unconcious.

Cassandra had a close friendship with former Batgirl Barbara Gordon, as well as one with Stephanie Brown, the Spoiler. She treated Batman sometimes as a mentor, sometimes as a surrogate father.

Later discovering Shiva was her mother, she was forced to defeat her once more by killing her, then hanging her over the Lazarus Pit to be reborn. After that, she disappeared for a while.

Since then, she has been out under mind control by Deathstroke the Terminator and forced to do evil, and was only recently freed from it by Robin (Tim Drake). Her future is unclear.

Notes:
Technically, she's the fourth Batgirl in the DCU's history, taking into account Kane and Bertinelli.
