A new hero is coming to the Arrowverse full-time. The Ruby Rose-led Batwoman show has received a series order at The CW. Rose made her debut as Kate Kane in the first episode of last year’s Elseworlds crossover. She aided Green Arrow, Flash, and Supergirl in tracking down John Deegan at Arkham Asylum following his use of the Book of Destiny.
The CW hopes Batwoman will fill the hole that will be left when Arrow concludes its historic run with its eighth and final season later this year.
First debuting in 52 #7 in 2006, Katherine “Kate” Kane is a wealthy heiress who becomes inspired by Batman and chooses, like him, to use her wealth to begin a campaign to fight crime as a vigilante in her hometown of Gotham City. Kane is of Jewish descent and identifies as a lesbian.
