Batwoman returns as a lesbian

Well, well, well. And I thought the character was still referred to as “Batgirl.”

Comic book heroine Batwoman is to make a comeback as a “lipstick lesbian” who moonlights as a crime fighter, a DC Comics spokesman has confirmed.

Batwoman – real name Kathy Kane – will appear in 52, a year-long DC Comics publication that began this month.

In her latest incarnation, she is a rich socialite who has a romantic history with another 52 character, ex-police detective Renee Montoya.
