MY FAVORITE CHARCTER! I’m so happy Cass is getting extra love
Thats’ my girl by 5th harmony


I believe the line “I can’t talk” completely applies to Cassandra Cain.


I just want to leave these here for now. Plan to be back with more…



Oooh, I love this theme @Green.Lantern! :partying_face:

Here’s what I brought…for now. Like always, great picks, everybody! Plz enjoy, and have a great week! :purple_heart:
Fire with Fire- The Gossip

Rat Trap- Feed Me

Oh and this is for @Izzy11. BOP is reading some Cass comics this month- come say hi! :bat: Tell us whatcha think!


Three Days Grace - Pain


So these aren’t songs that we feel “represent” Cass, but songs we feel she’d listen to? Since she’s canonically obsessed with ballerinas, I’m going to assume she primarily listens to baroque and romantic compositions, whenever Steph and Harper aren’t forcing their preferences upon her.


If we are going the classical music route
This is my favorite


And if Cass wanted to go to ballet school

She could try this approach


The visualization on this is hypnotizing. :drpsycho_eyebrowhqtas:


I don’t know if anything’s ever been choreographed to it, but I imagine Cass would get deep in to Liszt.


I feel like this calls for some butt-kicking music :muscle:


Not a character I know to well… I went with the “orphan” route I guess:

“Orphan Hymn”, by Comrades

I debated sharing this one, but figured why not, for my fellow metal fans.
“Orphan”, by Silent Planet

(Both bands are some of the most down to earth people I’ve met, with the vocalist of the latter being, probably, THE nicest dude ever!)


Well hello again G.L., Mixtape Mob, and everyone else. :wave: :sunglasses:

Say G.L. I know that tune of yours well. :smiley:

Ah, now songs that Cassandra Cain would listen to when she’s taking a break from being an almost unbeatable fighter… :thinking:

Perhaps these are a few she would be listening to… :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

First up… This one. :sweat_smile:

Next up… I think she might like this one… Especially with these lyrics: :musical_note:

Where did you think you could go?
'Cause everyone already knows
It’s twenty to one
Yeah, so you better run

Next up… Another one to remind herself what all the bad guys she fights will be doing if they cross her path. :joy:

And finally… Another tune to again remind what will happen to any villains that she encounters… :grin:
