Fans at Comic Con in New York this week were treated to a sneak preview of DC Comics's highest profile gay superhero, Batwoman, described by her creator as "the kind of sexy that makes you think of a succubus with a very bad attitude".
With fiery red hair, a skin-tight leather cat suit and knee-high red stiletto boots - complete with a blood red bat symbol on her ample chest - Batwoman, the alter ego of Kathy Kane, is set to make her debut on bookshelves this June in Detective Comics 854. Her appearance follows the shock apparent demise of Bruce Wayne, the multi-millionaire philanthropist who has protected the streets of Gotham City as Batman since 1939.
Writer Greg Rucka said that Batwoman - who first appeared in 1957 but was killed off in 1979 - was "exceptionally cool".
"Yes, she's a lesbian. She's also a redhead. It is an element of her character. It is not her character. If people are going to have problems with it, that's their issue," he told Comic Book Resources. "Frankly, she should be judged on her merits."

Maybe they can do a crossover book with the Lesbian Avengers. /sarc
Can’t escape this PC sh1t even in the comic books anymore. But since comic books aren’t really relevant anyway, at least it’s minimalized.
500,000 protests from Christian groups would result in Batwoman being the new cultural hero of the left.
One or two well-placed complaints by Muslim groups would get the whole comic quietly discontinued.
Such is the world we live in today.
Yes, she's a lesbian. She's also a redhead.
I really don't need to know what she has hidden in here utility belt. Want to know? Well maybe, but I don't need to know.
Lesbian Batwoman ?
oh geeze. what is the point in that ? Why does sexuality have to enter everything anymore ?
Is there any truth to the rumor that Batwoman will be sponsored by Snap-on Tools?
>Why does sexuality have to enter everything anymore ?
An exceptionally good question.
I’ll just wait for the movie
well that pretty much kills the franchise.
this is pure idiocy.
NO WAY is this anything other than trying to “normalize” deviancy.
This is no different than when homosexuals running for office have their pictures taken with normal families.
IOW “see homosexuals fighting badness makes them sexually normal.” Pay no attention to the deviant behavior becuase the OTHER behavior overcomes this other wrong.
Super heroes were to be definers of right and wrong. Homoseuxality is just plain wrong therefore this fake batworman is just wrong.
I always suspected that Nicole was more than just good friends with Naomi Watts.
From the title I thought Hillary was going on her first jaunt as Secretary of State.
These things are targeted and peddled to kids.
This is nothing more than a recruitment drive for the carpet people.
It's going to work about as well as this.
Looks like another night, staying home to wax the old batpoles for Bruce and Dick....
Heh... while I don't know for sure, what with the plethora of xxx look-alike movies out there it probably has already been done. :-)
This is just stupid; at least it’s not Barbara Gordon. Thank God.
I have a problem with this, and will not buy liberal-pc crap!
