The comic contains what DC describes as “the massive conclusion to the current storyline as Batwoman and Wonder Woman struggle to defeat Medusa and a horde of villains!”
The comic also, according to DC, contains “the start of a surprising new status quo for Batwoman!”
Could it be marriage for Batwoman aka Kathy Kane? Bleedingcool.com reports that “DC’s leading lesbian lady asks Maggie Sawyer, Captain Sawyer, her secret girlfriend to be her wife.”
Batwoman has appeared in a couple of comics – The Dark Knight and Batgirl. Batwoman the comic debuted in 2011.
DC’s website for the superhero of Gotham City says she has no superpowers but is a trained soldier and hand-to-hand combatant.
Her history: On her 12th birthday, Katherine “Kate” Rebecca Kane was taken hostage and held for ransom along with her twin sister and their mother. The rescue operation led by Kane’s father, Col. Jacob Kane, resulted in the death of her mother and sister. After her stint in the U.S. Army ended in scandal, a brief encounter with Batman inspired Kane to embark on a crime-fighting mission to clean up the streets using gear stolen from the military.
When confronted about her actions by her father, Kane agreed to let him train her, and she donned the Batman-inspired suit he created. She becomes known as Batwoman and brings her own brand of justice to Gotham City. Batwoman turned down an offer to join Batman, Incorporated, preferring to stay in control of her own mission to fight evil as she sees fit. Instead, she’s joined forces with the DEO in an effort to take down a growing contingent of supernatural criminals slithering their way into Gotham.
