Inspiration can happen anywhere—in a classroom, a theater, or in the comfort of your own home. But for Kate Kane, inspiration struck in the most unlikely of places: a dark, dingy Gotham City street. Moved and motivated by an encounter with Batman, Kate donned a utility belt and joined the ranks of the costumed crimefighters in Gotham City. She became Batwoman.
Kate had a long history of overachievement. She was an exemplary pupil at the United States Military Academy, earning top marks and easily rising to the head of her class…until she was dismissed from the school for being gay. Kate received support at home from her colonel father, but she was angry and frustrated by the military’s actions. Disheartened, Kate lost direction and became caught up with late nights and partying. And then Batman intervened.
As Batwoman, Kate combines her special operative training and deep sense of discipline to serve justice to criminals. In fact, of all of Batman’s allies, Batwoman may be the one who’s most like him. Her military training makes her a tough adversary in both armed and unarmed combat, her experiences have made her a strong opponent of injustice and her intelligence has led her to become a solid detective. However, she also shares the Dark Knight’s self-destructive tendencies when it comes to personal relationships. For her, the mission always comes first.
