Sorry to ask another question, but I just wanted to say Artemis has come to be the breakout character of the show for me, and I guess I just had a question.

Obviously the writers took a lot of liberties with the character for the sake of fitting your adaptation (which I'm always a fan of seeing BTW!) and I've noticed that to a certain degree, bits of Artemis' backstory in the show resemble that of Cassandra Cain, who was the third Batgirl. Particularly making her parents members of the League of Shadows and having a white, blonde father and an Asian mother, and of course becoming a superhero to move away from her parents' lifestyle.

So I was just wondering, were some of these similarities intentional, or just a coincidence?

Either way, keep up the good work!

Greg responds...

Not intentional, as I'm just not that familiar with Cassandra Cain. But the similarities may be natural as opposed to coincidental.
