Years after she first emerged from the Batcave, Batwoman is coming out
of the closet. DC Comics is resurrecting the classic comic book
character as a lesbian, unveiling the new Batwoman in July as part of
an ongoing weekly series that began this year.
"She's a socialite from Gotham high society," (Dan) DiDio (vice president and executive editor at DC Comics) said. "She has some
past connection with Bruce Wayne. And she's also had a past love affair
with one of our lead characters, Renee Montoya."
