Batwoman (Katherine “Kate” Kane) is a DC superhero who is a wealthy heiress who becomes inspired by the superhero Batman and chooses, like him, to put her wealth and resources towards a campaign to fight crime as a masked vigilante in her home of Gotham City. This current version of Batwoman was introduced in 2006 in the seventh week of the publisher’s year-long 52 weekly comic book. Introduced as Kate Kane, the modern Batwoman began operating in Gotham City in Batman’s absence following the events of the company-wide crossover Infinite Crisis (2005). The modern Batwoman is written as being of Jewish descent and as a lesbian. During the New 52, it is established that Kate Kane is a cousin of Batman’s alter-ego Bruce Wayne and thus a niece of his mother Martha Wayne.« Back to Glossary Index
