I think she was gone as Batwoman post-Crisis, though I read somewhere, Kathy Kane continued to be a character...

I didn't mind that she faded away, she was kind of "too precious" feminine with a "bat purse" etc., but like gradually changing the "marriage crazy" Lois Lane of the 60s, I have no problem with Batwoman maybe retiring etc.  I kind of liked Ace, though I have rarely seen a dog drawn more strangely... Cool

Yeah, after she was apparently killed by the League of Shadows after her retirement in the Bronze Age...

Another simplicity introduced by the Crisis that made the complex DC universe more understandable... Cool

Quote from: Superman of America
Also, in the new history when Bats fired Dick wasn't it Superman who gave him the Nightwing persona idea?
I always thought that Robin quit and then later adopted the Nightwing ID himself, inspired in part by Kal's adventures as "Nightwing" in the Bottle City.

Who in the world ever came up with this "fired" gimmick?  Sounds like a horrible idea to me!

S!

I found out this lil' tidbit, maybe Lady Shiva is a contender for the new Batwoman. I like the idea of having an Asian member of the Bat-family. http://www.answers.com/topic/batwoman

I belive they reconned her to Earth-2.

Anyone know for sure, I am not the biggest Batfan.


There was a Kathy Kane/Batwoman on both Earths.  The Earth-1 model, as noted, was assassinated.  The Earth-2 model came out of retirement at least once to team with Earth-1 Batman in another of Alan Brennert's masterpieces in "Brave and the Bold."  Lots of interesting character scenes there as E-2 Kathy and E-1 Bruce creep each other out, each reminding the other of their dead friend/love.

This came from writer Max Allen Collins, who took over "Batman" shortly after Miller's DKR as part of an abortive "re-boot" effort.  In his version of things, Dick was shot by the Joker, freaking out Batman who basically fired him from the Robin job so he wouldn't be responsible for his safety any more.  Of course by the next issue he had a new Robin, making the whole thing twice as stupid.  (This is the same storyline that introduced Jason Todd as a streetwise punk Batman catches boosting the tires off the Batmbobile!).

And yes, that's the same Max Allen Collins who wrote the graphic novel turned Tom Hanks film, "Road to Perdition."  So he did have his good days, Batman notwithstanding.

Batwoman returns to the Modern Age DC and she'll be Kathy Kane. This isn't the original Kathy she'll be a buxom lipstick lesbian who may have had a tryst with Renee Montoya. Her new costume is designed by Alex Ross.

This has been all over the news the last few days with everyone asking the same question, Why a lesbian?.

Indeed, why.
DC does it again to the fans.  A senseless change for a classic character.
