Storyline: Batgirl's brother (Cain's first "try"), Mad Dog, attacked her. Alpha took at shot at him, but Cassandra deflected his aim. She tracked Mad Dog. He ended up stabbing her through the chest and out the back. Batgirl died. Shiva grabbed her up and walked away.

Issue #73

Cover Date: April 2006
Subtitle: Blood Matters conclusion: Revelations
Writer(s): Anderson Gabrych
Artists(s): Pop Mhan, Jesse Delperdang, Adam Dekraker
Storyline: Cassandra didn't want to believe she was dead - Bludhaven needed her. Stephanie showed her Bludhaven had been destroyed. She then burst through the fluids of the Lazarus Pit. Shiva had brought her back.
Shiva told her daughter how only after Cain had killed her sister did she realize how much she'd been held back. After their daughter was born, she left and became Shiva.
They fought; Cassandra won. Instead of finishing off her mother, she hung her above the Lazarus Pit, so that when she fell, she fell into it.
