Who knew?! Â Originally introduced in 1956 as a love interest for Batman, Batwoman was a camp character who accompanied the Dark Knight on many adventures before fading into comic book obscurity. When DC Comics dusted off the character in 2006 they re-introduced her as a kick-ass lesbian named Kate Kane, a former member of the U.S military who was romantically linked to Gotham City police detective Rene Montoya. Unfortunately, the comics company received a fair amount of backlash for introducing a high-profile LGBT character and plans for a Batwoman solo series were placed on hold.
September 14 will mark another historic achievement for DC whenÂ Batwoman #1Â lands on bookshelves (and digital devices) around the world. Sheâ€™ll be the first LGBT character to have her own ongoing monthly comic book from a mainstream publisher.
I’m not gonna lie, I really want to see a Batwoman running around gay Wilton Manors. Seriously, couldn’t you see someone dressed as Batwoman at like…New Moon? Â Love that place!
