Physical appearance

In her costumed persona, Batwoman wears a black mask with pointed bat-like ears. The mask covers most of her face, leaving only the mouth and the skin near the lips visible. Her thick red hair is visible from behind the mask. Batwoman wears a black uniform that covers her entire body, with a red bat symbol on her chest. She also has a long cape that reaches the ground, and several pouches around her waist.


Early history

Batwoman became a hero in 2016 at the age of 25.[4] She joined the Justice League around December 2017.[5]


Upset with being kept in the dark about the true purpose of the Injustice League's league, Joker staged an attack on the United Nations. Batman's entire team stepped in to stop him, disabling the Joker venom canisters and gave chase when he escaped.[1]

She attended an emergency League meeting via hologram in which Batman proposed to dissolve the team, as a result of the restrictions placed by the United Nations on their actions. After he tendered his resignation, Batwoman was among the ones who promptly followed suit, presumably having planned it in advance.[6]
