We can turn off the Bat signal, because Batwoman has arrived!

The CW has revealed the first image of Ruby Rose in full costume as Kathy Kane, aka Batwoman.

As the teens say these days, WIG. The character is described as a hero with a flair for social justice who isn't afraid to speak her mind. "In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham's symbol of hope".

"Elseworlds" begins with The Flash on December 9th, followed by Arrow on December 10th and Supergirl on December 11th.

Rose quit Twitter in August following backlash against her casting as Kate Kane/Batwoman.

The three-night crossover kicks off with "The Flash" on December 5, but a spinoff series starring Rose has already been eyed by the network with a potential premiere date in 2019.

Rose will be playing this female Caped Crusader for the three episode run of the "Elseworlds" crossover event, and has potential to have her own series down the road.

"When women and when minorities join forces we are unstoppable. when we tear each other down it's much more hurtful than from any group". But hey/ love a challenge I just wish women and the LGBT community supported each other more, My wish was we were all a little kinder and more supportive of each other...

In a previous statement she said: "The Bat is out of the bag and I am beyond thrilled and honoured". Though the iconic comic-book city has been mentioned time and time again in the Arrowverse, it never appeared on screen. If the project went to series, Batwoman would be the first gay lead character in a live-action superhero TV show. I'm also an emotional wreck. because this is a childhood dream.
