DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know Batwoman was introduced in the annual Arrowverse crossover titled "Elseworlds"? The episode aired in December 2018, which brought together superheroes from different CW series. Thereafter, the CW ordered the pilot in January 2019, as part of the 2019-20 television season. If you don't know yet Batwoman, otherwise known as Kate Kane, made her comic book debut in 1956. In fact, she is a socialite and an heiress who decided to find a way to fight crimes in Gotham. Sadly, she was removed on the DC Comics in 1985 during the "Crisis on Infinite Earths." Then, she returned in 2006 as an entirely new Batwoman. Kane first appeared as a civilian and was later revealed to be the vigilante Batwoman. This means she is entering the Arrowverse with a much less comic book history than the other heroes.
Moreover, Batwoman will add diversity to the Arrowverse as she is DC's most prominent gay hero. Although, isn't it ironic that the original Batwoman was created to persuade people that Batman and Robin were gay. And now, the new Kate Kane also known as Batwoman is out and proud. Surprisingly, the decision to make her a gay character proved popular with fans and the LGBTQ+ community. The reason behind this decision is that DC Comics want to diversify the DC universe. Whether the Batwoman on CW is good or not remains to be a question. But whether or not it is well-received, it is definitely sure that Batwoman will be sticking around for a while.
