Batwoman is Katherine Kane, a vigilante who operates in Gotham City.

The original Batwoman, Kathy Kane, acted as a female counterpart to Batman with her side-kick Bat-Girl and romantically pursued Batman. In the modern era, her legacy is taken up by the army brat Kate Kane, a lesbian expelled from West Point due to her sexuality. She is Bruce Wayne's cousin - her father Jacob Kane being the brother of Martha Kane Wayne, Bruce's mother. Kate Kane has been involved with the Batman Family, Batman Incorporated, and the Female Furies. Batwoman was created by Edmond Hamilton and Sheldon Moldoff, first appearing in Detective Comics #233.
