One such fan, codenamed Espanolbot, created what amounted to an editorial cartoon in which Cass herself complained about her treatment. This struck a chord with other fans, and similar strips were soon created. Eventually they became a running feature on several forums, known as ''CassToons.''

* BlackComedyRape: Supergirl, with Tim Drake a frequent target.



* {{Flanderization}}: Many of the characters have had their personalities exaggerated for comedic purposes. For example, Supergirl's then-obnoxious personality was blown up to HeroicComedicSociopath levels. As her canon personality mellowed, so did her depiction in Casstoons. Then there was ComicBook/{{Batwoman}}...
** Batwoman's portrayal was well before she received her own series. At the time her HollywoodHypeMachine followed by her lack of appearances gave a perception that [[UnfortunateImplications she had no actual personality or character beyond being gay.]] Then her series came out, which quickly rectified the issue.

In the spring of 2006, after ''[[CrisisCrossover Infinite Crisis]]'', most of DCComics' series jumped forward in time, in an event called "One Year Later." In the ''Robin'' series, Tim Drake suddenly found himself fighting a surprising villain, the former Batgirl, Cassandra Cain. Not that a FaceHeelTurn was out of the question, but the character had undergone other, more inexplicable changes.

While the original focus was on the supposed mistreatment of Cass, the strip soon widened up to make fun of events not just in TheDCU, but also in the MarvelUniverse (especially the ''Civil War'' event) and comic books in general. From there the strips grew to encompass satires on real-world events and themes, movies, videogames, even creating satire on itself and its creators/illustrators/writors.
