Batwoman

Clad in the Hebrew colors of war, former West Point Academy cadet Kate Kane is Batman’s cousin, but she fights a battle all her own against injustice.

Bruce Wayne was robbed of both of his parents when he was just a small child, but his work as Batman has inspired those more fortunate than he was to follow his lead.

Trained by the military, Kate Kane was an heiress inspired to fight crime by the Dark Knight’s example after he rescued her from a mugger. But Kate’s story is unique. One of the few openly gay superheroes, she struggles for respect in her personal life as she protects all of Gotham City’s citizens, whether they respect her or not.
