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."

History is made on a daily basis.

Indeed, there is little more exciting than having witnessed the accomplishments of people like Barack Obama, Stacey Abrams, and Greta Thunberg knowing that they have firmly reserved a space for themselves in history books.

Of course, most of the people who paved the way to make the world what it is today have long since passed away.

Not all of them, though!

It may surprise you to learn that there are people who made an indelible impression on history who are still much alive today.

Some of whom even continue to make a difference to this very day

We all indulge in fast food from time to time.

Even if we know what we're eating isn't exactly healthy, sometimes the salty, fatty mass-produced food is the only thing we want.

Resulting in our making weekly, if not daily, visits to a nearby chain.

Then, of course, there are the chains that we make every effort to avoid.

We've likely tried places at least once simply because everyone is always talking about them.

But after having one bite, we have trouble seeing exactly what all the fuss was about and vow to never return.

Even if it might be the only option at a rest stop or even the only available food for miles, we instead opt to wait and be hungry.

There are several movies I've watched so many times I think the viewings outnumber the days I've lived.

And much like a favorite tv series or movie, who wouldn't love to start again anew?

Experiencing that first time but with that feeling of... "I'm gonna love this forever."

We never appreciate the first time enough.

But that's life.

Warning: there are spoilers below.

There is no one way to anybody's heart or libido.

Sexy doesn't always have to equal raunchy.

I've known people turned on by music, books, nature, and even funerals (don't ask).

What starts someone's engine is a mystery.
