    Lock up your daughters. The fairer of Gotham City's Caped Crusaders is back. And she's out and she's proud.

    I wonder what that's a euphamism for?

    GWB and the Conservative Right?

    Maybe Robin will finally find the courage...

    Hmmm...don't know how I feel about this. I hate changing an existing character to suit a current political climate, but this sounds like the old "new character in an alternate dimension" trick. In which case, it sounds okay to me.

    What's mildly interesting is her name, Kathy Kane. Bob Kane was the orginal creator of Batman way back in the 30's. Is this a nod to him, his family, or just coincidence?

    I'm also afraid most of the public will think this is really Batgirl grown up. Shes not, Batwoman is an entirely different person.

    How do I still know this? Why do I still know this? Its been almost 15 years since I've read a comic!

    I don't even care then, but I'd really enjoy it more if she was hot.

    Bat Woman and Wonder Woman, "together" at last.

    It would make a great porno.

    What shall the title be?

    'fraid not. As the opening post says...

    The series is set in a world in which established superheroes like Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman no longer play a part.

    As Black&Tan says though, Batgirl and Batwoman are two entirely different people so there's always the outside chance of some bat-on-bat action if that's what gets you going. :p

    I'm sure I read somewhere that Bob Kane based her look on that of his wife, hence the name. But I might be wrong.

    I don't care. I just wanna see the inevitable movie, where Batwoman "dykes it out" with some female enemies.

    Oracle (formerly Batgirl) has never left the Batman comic series.

    And Nightwing (original Robin) and Oracle have always had a deep attraction for each other though neither has really acted on it. Between what happen to Oracle, the fact that they live in different cities (she wouldn't leave Batman's side even to be with Nightwing) and that too much time has past to actually do anything about it has worked to keep them apart.

    If a kid can learn anything from Nightwing and Oracle it is that growing up doesn't make relationships any easier.

    Even now, Nightwing and Batman have major issues that neither has gotten past (Batman was like a father to Nightwing which puts a lot of pressure on the relationship that isn't there with the current Robin who still has a family). Batman is (in my opinion) overly critical of Nightwing, which caused him to be rebellious while growing up (he had problems in high school and college) and has kept both from asking for help from the other (Batman didn't ask Nightwing to take over as Batman when he had his back broken until after his first choice turned out to be a major mistake).

    :rolleyes:

    Well, that most likely wasn't what this thread was supposed to be about... but there it is.

    Never much cared for DC comics, was always a Marvel man myself.. but Nightwing is a definite improvement in the name department! Much more fitting as a Dark Detective side-kick.
