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."

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."

Christmas is upon us. It's time to get those Christmas present lists together.

So... who has been naughty and who has been nice?

Who is getting diamonds and who is getting coal? Yuck, coal. Is that even a thing anymore? Who even started that idea?

There has to be some funnier or more "for the times" type of "you've been naughty" stocking stuffer.

I feel like the statement coal used to make is kind of last century at this point.

Apparently I'm not alone in this thinking.

I admit, I love my stuffed animals. They're the best.

Some of them have been with me for years and I have them proudly displayed in different spots around my apartment. And when I've packed them for a move, I've done so with all the tender loving care I can muster.

What is it about them that stirs up these feelings?

Believe it or not, it's quite possible to form emotional attachments to inanimate objects!

They say your 30's hits different, like one day you're young a hopeful and the next day you're just WAY too old for this.

What is the "this" you're suddenly too old for?

No idea. It's different for everyone, but make no mistake, it'll happen to you too.

Maybe it already has?

Do all mothers go to the say mom school or something? Because they seem to share the same advice or go on the same platitudes, don't they?

Here's an idea.

Maybe they're just older, have more experience, and are trying to keep us from being dumbasses in public. At least, that's what I think.

I'm definitely grateful for my mother's advice—it's saved me more than once—and it seems many out there are too. And they all seem to have heard the same things from their mothers, too.
