Ruby Rose’s Batwoman came out as a lesbian with a little help from Melissa Benoist’s Kara Danvers in the latest episode of The CW series.
While Ruby Rose’s Kate Kane has never shied away from her sexual orientation, it’s not been a part of her superhero alter-ego in Batwoman until now. The most recent Batwoman episode saw a teen hacker wanting to reveal the city’s secrets because her ex-girlfriend outed her sexuality to her disapproving parents. After Batwoman’s nemesis Alice realizes she can use the teen’s hacking skills for her own gain, she attempts to out Kate Kane’s secret identity as Batwoman to Gotham City.
But when Ruby Rose’s Kate Kane unmasked herself to the teenager, the hacker only sent the astonishing revelation to Kate and Alice’s phone while an SOS was sent to the city about Alice’s location. The teenager explained that she never thought Batwoman would be someone like her, and she’d never reveal her identity. Ruby Rose’s Kate Kane instantly realised that revealing Batwoman’s sexuality in the press would give LGBTQ+ teenagers an icon to look up to. With a little help from Melissa Benoist’s Kara Danvers, Batwoman came out as a lesbian in a magazine article from CatCo, complete with a front page headline and photo of the vigilante.
