Batwoman Comes Out!

5.30.2006

By Michael C. Sherrin

Gotham City's sexiest socialite knows more than how to throw a party. Kathy Kane also knows a bit about throwing punches'and she introduces herself to comic book readers by striking her ex-girlfriend right across the jaw.

In various incarnations, Batwomen have had a long history in Batman comics, starting in 1956 when Kathy Kane first appeared. But this new version of Kane shares only a name with her predecessors. The campy heroine who once carried a utility purse while clad in a full-body yellow one-piece now sports a new, dark costume, and she's got an attitude to match. Batwoman will be the highest profile gay superhero to ever grace the pages of DC Comics.
