Before the Q&A session for DC Comics' Batman panel Friday evening at New York Comic Con officially started, DC marketing VP John Cunningham asked a fan waiting at the mic for a question, and received what has become a traditional query at DC's live events: "When are Stephanie Brown or Cassandra Cain coming back?"
"We know that they're characters that you guys have been really vocal about," "Batman" writer Scott Snyder replied. "Your guys' love of Stephanie Brown has been so inspiring to us. We're really proud to announce that she'll be coming back in [new weekly series 'Batman: Eternal'], in a big way. Dan DiDio is in the audience to yell at us for telling you that.
"No one was trying to shelve her," Snyder continued. "It was more about finding the right time to reintroduce her."
Snyder said that James Tynion IV, one of the co-writers on "Eternal," came up with the idea to reintroduce her, suggesting it'll be as Spoiler. Tynion confirmed that Stephanie Brown will make her long awaited New 52 in "Batman: Eternal" #3.
