RUBY ROSE as CW's BATWOMAN

Fans were incredibly excited that a queer woman was cast in the role, as Batwoman is one of the highest-profile lesbian superheroes in comics, and fans are hoping to see her sexuality represented when she heads to screens later this year. In 2006 she returned as Kate Kane, "an out lesbian and trained street fighter primed to snuff out [Gotham City's] criminal resurgence". "But don't call her a hero yet".

In her real life she is Katherine (later Kate) Kane, a wealthy Gotham City heiress who, inspired by Batman's heroic deeds, created for herself a superhero alter-ego. If everything goes according to plan, Rose will also headline her own Batwoman series as the network is now developing a stand-alone series around the character, too. And if a Batwoman spinoff is approved, it would be the first TV series featuring an LGBT superhero.

Ruby Rose makes the flawless Batwoman.

What are your first impressions of Rose's Batwoman look? "I came out at 12?" she tweeted before her exit. And have for the past 5 years had to deal with "she's too gay" how do y'all flip it like that? The actress silenced the complaints saying, "When women and when minorities join forces we are unstoppable... when we tear each other down it's much more hurtful than from any group". I like the little touches here, though. Unfortunately, some of the more negative reactions to Rose's casting were rather rude and harmful, leading to Rose ultimately deleting her Twitter account in order to avoid the negativity and hate. "I go all the way back to 'Dawson's Creek, '" he said.
