Looks like Batgirl is all grown up.

And, now, apparently, in a break from her storyline in the olde TV series, she is now a lesbian:

Hmmmmm……..

I suspect it will only be a matter of time before Bruce Wayne/Batman has competition for Catwoman's affections.

A love triangle that could prove to be quite complicated……

Hmm, I wouldn't say it's a break, it wasn't contra-indictated in the olde TV character.

And this has what to do with wargaming?

It's a different character. Been around for years. But good job on doing the barest minimum of research.

Batwoman (Kate Kane) is a different character than Batgirl (Barbara Gordon). This being superhero comics, it's a lot more convoluted than that.

"What has this to do with wargaming?" This.

Who cares?

Background for scenarios and plot twists, of course.

Yuppers, have to know how to trap the heroes!

What does her sexual orientation have to do with anything?
Let alone miniature gaming.

I always thought the Batwoman character would make a great subject for a TV series of movie.

Google and Wikipedia are your friends.
Batwoman is a totally different character than Batgirl. Batgirl was the daughter of Commissioner Gordon. I think. Batwoman was Katy Kane.
A new editor in 1964 totally eliminated a whole slew of extraneous "Bat" people. This included Batgirl, Batwoman etc.
In 1985 it was retconned that Batwoman never existed.
Then around 2005, Batwoman was re-introduced, again as Katherine Kane. And she came back, in 2005, as lesbian. That's 13 years ago.

This happens time and again on TMP. "Guys" who have no clue about a character's complicated soap opera life get … perplexed when a movie character comes out as not white, not straight.
Not long ago, the Earth and Heavens collapsed when Captain Marvel was "revealed" to be a …. girl! (Which Captain Marvel has been since 1975. grin)

I'm also guilty. I was annoyed when Peter Jackson threw in a romance between an elf and a dwarf in The Hobbit. That was most certainly NOT in the book, damn your eyes! grin

What does this have to do with wargaming?
I could say that about half of all topics on TMP.

One more thing. I don't like ANY Batman movie. That whole Dark Knight nonsense is just that. Nonsense.

Been there, done that. What's the big deal?

As for dwarf and elf romance, since first reading The Lord of the Ring, I always presumed that Legolas and Gimli had a thing going.

Dark Knight, ptooh!

Legolas and Gimli did go on vacations together. One room.

What really frosted me was the Aragorn/Brego romance plotline.

Coelacanth, I stand corrected sir.

That's all you could find wrong in that mess?

Kevin Conroy is Batman.

Peter Jackson committed many crimes against LoTR

"Kevin Conroy is Batman"

Kevin who? Never heard of him.

Kevin Conroy did Batman's voice in the animated series and a lot of the animated films too.

28mm Fanatik10 Oct 2018 4:48 p.m. PST

I thought Bruce Wayne is Batman.

I do confess to not keeping up with, or even being interested in the arcane history of comic-book characters.

I did find the announcement interesting though, since it offers up lots of possible plot twists for various games.

When I was a kid, I thought Batgirl[Yvonne Craig] in the '60s' Batman TV series was pretty darn "hot" ! evil grin

Cacique Caribe30 Oct 2018 10:07 p.m. PST

Yvonne was a big crush of mine.
