Australian actress Ruby Rose is making her Batwoman debut in the CW's Arrowverse during the upcoming three-night crossover event called "Elseworlds."

The CW released promotional images of Batwoman, a.k.a. Kate Kane, and stunned fans eager for "Elseworlds" to air in December.


But the off-camera candid shot of Rose posing with Supergirl's Melissa Benoist, both of whom are in their superhero uniforms, is making the internet geek out from the worlds colliding.

Benoist posted the photo on her Instagram page.

She wrote:

"Indicative of my excitement that she's here and kicking ass @rubyrose."



People were here for the two different DC superheroes posing for a picture together.

Kate Kane will have the honor of being the first lesbian live-action superhero headlining a network television show when her own series premieres in 2019.

While the CW has several LGB characters in the DC line-up, none is the title character of a show.

According to TV Line, the CW described her character as:

"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 a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham's symbol of hope."



According to Deadline, the Batwoman character of Kate Kane was already established as an out lesbian trailblazer in the comics.

Her character was reintroduced in 2006 as a Jewish lesbian and became the first-ever lesbian DC comic book superhero.







The Arrowverse already has LGBTQ representation, including, Arrow's Curtis Holt, The Flash's Captain Singh, Legends' Sara Lance and Supergirl's Alex Danvers. Black Lightning lesbian character Thunder/Anissa Pierce is one of the featured superheros on the CW show as is bisexual Sara Lance on Legends of Tomorrow, but Batwoman will be the first to be the title character on a project.

The "Elseworlds" TV event is an extension of the DC universe in which the familiar characters exist in an alternate universe under different circumstances.

Floor 8 provided some examples of the "Elseworlds" characters from the comic books that inspired the TV event:

"Famous examples include 'Gotham by Gaslight' which saw an 1800s Batman take on Jack the Ripper, and 'Red Son' which showed what would have happened if Superman landed in the Soviet Union instead of Kansas."

"Elseworlds" will premiere on Sunday, December 9, 2018, with The Flash at 8 p.m. It will continue the following night with Arrow at 8 p.m. and conclude on Tuesday at 8 p.m. with Supergirl.


A Batwoman spinoff series is already in the works for a 2019 premiere and will feature Rose as the titular hero.

Acknowledging her casting in the role as a "game-changer," she told Jimmy Fallon during an appearance in August's The Tonight Show:

"Growing up watching TV, I never saw somebody that I identified with, let alone a superhero."

I have a few wealthy friends and I've seen a thing or two that has made my eyes pop out of my head. Let's just say that the priorities of a wealthy person and a dude who has never broken six figures are entirely different. But that doesn't compare to working for the fabulously rich. A friend of mine was a nanny for a super rich family for several years and described the lavish trips she took with them (and how picky and out of touch they were, too).

People told us their own stories after Redditor NeighborhoodTrolley asked the online community,

"People who cater to the super rich: What things have you seen?"

Oh the matters of the heart are just never going to be easy. Love seems to be a never ending mess. I've dated a lot and can attest that the percentage of bad to good is 70/30. And that may be generous math.

I've heard about people fighting on dates, setting fire to the restaurant, discovering hidden identities and dramas I thought only ever occurred on daytime television.

I use to believe the biggest fear about dating was that the other person may turn out to be a serial killer, but they at least tend to show you a respectable time before they strike.

Oof. Let's see who has been left scarred by the hunt.

Redditor u/givemeyourfreefood wanted everyone to share the stories that almost made them re-think searching for love, by asking:

What's the worst date you ever had?
