Batwoman hero returns...

...as a lesbian.

Comic book heroine Batwoman is to make a comeback as a "lipstick lesbian" who moonlights as a crime fighter, a DC Comics spokesman has confirmed.

The new-look Batwoman is just one of a wave of ethnically and sexually diverse characters entering the DC Comics universe.

For the full 4-1-1 read BBC -

I want to be Hyperion's Girl Friday through Sunday. Where do I apply?

I'd still f***k her

Now THIS would be an ethnically diverse comic book.

Lipstick lesbians are not a new and edgy societal breakthrough. Gold and Silver Age comics were about as lily-white as you can imagine, because that was the comic-book buying demographic.

Now, with more new potential comic collectors spending time and money on new and improved console games, comic book companies are looking for niche market penetration to prevent sales erosion.

DC comics ain't Rosa Parks. They're just trying to get more money in the till. It'd be nice if they didn't dress that up in 'better ethnic recognition of society', but whatever.
