But will She Wear Comfortable Shoes?

That's Miss "not that there's anything wrong with that" to you, bub:

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.

I thought is was BatGirl?

Historically, Batgirl was young Barbara Gordon (daughter of Commissioner Gordon). She became Batwoman (with a slight costume change) when she stopped being Batman's assistant, sort of like how Robin grew up and became Nightwing.

Of course, she was killed off when DC did the Crisis of Infinite Resets, and they've been resetting the continuity so often since then that Batgirl never got a chance to become Batwoman again, until now.

Bah, there goes my street cred as a comics geek. Further research has revealed that Batwoman was actually Batgirl's aunt.

Or maybe that's how it happened during one of the resets. Oh well, I stopped caring about comics a long time ago, anyways.

Yeah - millions of geeks are complaining.

Until theres's a little Catwoman/Batwoman lovin' going on. Hotties, in leather, with impossible proportions - and in a comic book.

Kittens of the world, beware!!!!
