I'm not familiar with Batwoman, but hasn't she been around for like a decade now? What has she done since then? All I know is she was a Lesbian since that was literally how they introduced her as the most important aspect of her. Has she done anything since?

How related is she to the Batfamily? She always seemed like the red headed stepchild of the bat family. Will this be in continuity with the other CW shows? So does that mean Batman will finally be acknowledged besides vague references?

Edit: How many shows are there now in the Arrowverse? Arrow, Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, Blacklighting? Batwoman? What am I missing? The animated Vixen shorts? Constantine? It's so overwhelming, I"m like 2 years behind on the Arrowverse but that means I'm like 200 forty minute episodes behind.

Technically? Since 1956.

Well, she killed Talia al Ghul, she fought some weird ghost things, almost got married to Maggie Sawyer, fought Killer Croc, killed Clayface...

I dunno, I've never cared for her. Bruce Wayne having a cousin seems weird to me. Like, why did Alfred raise him, not Jacob Kane or whoever?

But the Rebirth Detective Comics series did some pretty cool things with her.

I don't read the comics, so I only know her from the DC Animated movies Batman: Bad Blood and Batman: The Mystery of the Batwoman.

Ok... The Batwoman origin is a bit well everywhere. It all started in the 50s with Kathy Kane who was Bruce's aunt (by marriage). Her husband died and a villain (supposadly her father) convinced her that Batman needed to be put down. So she initially became Batwoman to spy on Batman, see how he worked, and then kill him... only....they fell in love. Yep. Brucie's main love interest back in the day was his aunt (they even married). Then she faked her death (came back years later as some sort of secret agent).

The CURRENT Batwoman is Kate Kane, Bruce's Jewish lesbian cousin. This is the Batwoman that'll be the focus of the Arrow-verse. She's rich, a socialite, has an evil twin (Beth aka Alice Liddle), raised by her military dad (Bruce's uncle Col. Jacob Kane), love interest is Renee Montoya, sidekick is her cousin Bette/Flamebird. Kate's a military brat, attended the academy but got kicked out for being a lesbian. She uses her military training to fight. Her father is basically her Alfred.

Dare I ask where you got that from? I've never heard of the OG Batwoman being referred to as Bruce's aunt. I doubt the Comics Code Authority would allow that to happen.

She's his aunt by marriage. Not biologically related. Kathy's husband was Bruce's bio uncle Nathan. Martha Wayne (nee Kane) had 4 brothers: Jacob, Nathan, Phillip, and whoever Bette/Flamebird's dad is (he's never been named). Philip actually took care of Bruce for a while after his parents died. But then for whatever reason Alfred ended up raising him. I don't remember how Nathan died but it was after his death that Kathy used her circus skillz (yeah she was in some circus Nathan purchased *lol*) to use as Batwoman.

I looked it up, and I see you were talking about New Earth Kathy Kane: http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Katherine_Webb_(New_Earth)

I had thought you were talking about Pre Crisis Batwoman, who wasn't his aunt by marriage: http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Katherine_Kane_(Earth-One)

But at least here we know it's going to happen. And hopefully handled a lot better than the Maggie and Alex "romance" in Supergirl...that literally gave me a goddamn headache how many times they "broke up" or had fights in like a season and a half before they finally broke up for good.

If it's as good as season one of Supergirl, I'm all for this. For me, that show is the closest modern equivalent we have to the Donner movies.

I'd imagine it'll end up on that DC Universe streaming service at some point, too.

It will not surprise me one bit if Maggie winds up in this..given that she was Kate's comic book love interest for a long time and they were close to tying the knot until Dan Didio mandated it not happen, forcing the creative team at the time to leave in protest.

Really???? wow talk about bold.

Really disgusted to see them discriminate and exclude other talented actors based on their sexual orientation..... I am happy to see a homosexual character get a tv show, bc it shows improvement in equality and diversity within our society, but again this is hypocritical..... I said this before and I will say this again hire the best actress/actor for the role.....

Is that even legal? Like, to apply to read for said part, they ask you, "OK, we like your reel... but are you attracted to the same sex in your personal life?" and if not, you can't read for the part?

Haha, I'm sure there are corporately acceptable ways around it, like saying "it's not a deal breaker, but we really thought they'd be right for this part because..."
