After Batman and his team successfully took down the Colony crime in Gotham City is at an all time low! But is the city too quiet?
Secretly, the League of Shadows, led by Shiva, mother of the Orphan, is ready to pounce on a very vulnerable Batman Family and take over Gotham City.
How will the Orphan handle her mother? Will there be a mother-daughter battle to the death? Are we going to see a desperate Batman release Col. Kane and the Colony to aid Gotham City?
Overall, a good start to a story. Keeping my interest and will be awaiting part 2 in two weeks.
This over sized anniversary special is titled, League of Shadows: Prologue and focuses mainly in Casandra Cain. A.k.a. Orphan. Orphan recently has played a major role in the Bat family and she is the daughter of assassins David Cain and Lady Shiva. As a child she was trained to be the worlds greatest assassin and consequently lost her ability to speak. Cassie has even donned the Batgirl cape as well while working with Oracle.
This book tries to give you a deeper understanding of the inner struggles that Casandra Cain deals with on a nightly basis. She struggles to separate with the human side of her and the assassin side of her. Actually it seems that she struggles just to be a human at all. The title sugguests some kind of involvement with the League of Shadows. Will Orpan join them or will she fight them?
