The Arrow-verse Is Finally Embracing Batman’s Mythos By Introducing Batwoman

First introduced in 1956 as a love interest and vigilante inspired by Batman’s crimefighting efforts, Kathy Kane’s Batwoman was pushed out of the narratives a decade later. The heroine didn’t return until 2006, as Jewish lesbian Kate Kane, who has become a major part of the comic world in the years since, earning her own solo series and a lead run in Batman’s birthplace, Detective Comics, and her importance has been retained through the Rebirth launch. She has also had a notable role on the animated side of things, serving as the subject of the 2003 feature Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman and appearing in two of the current DC Animated Universe films, as well as Batman: The Brave and the Bold. This will be her first major live-action appearance, though, and we couldn’t be more pumped.
