Batwoman origin to be revealed

DC Comics / JH Williams

Writer Greg Rucka and artist JH Williams III are to explore the origin of Batwoman Kate Kane, beginning in Detective Comics #858.

The creators promised that the lesbian superhero’s second story arc, entitled Go, will also reveal details about her nemesis Alice.

"Go will tie directly into the first story arc," Rucka told Newsarama.

"This is how and why she put on the costume, and what she did to make sure she didn't go out and get killed in her first outing."

DC Comics bills Go as a "shocking and tragic origin story" in which a young Kane’s life changes after she and her family are kidnapped by terrorists.

Detective Comics #858 is out October 28.
