Clock King has a drug, reputed to provide its user with a brief glimpse of the
future. Sounds unlikely, but Batwoman and Det. Reneé Montoya have no problem
bringing him down. But it’s pretty easy to defeat a criminal when his idea of
refuge is on one of the hands of a giant clock, which happens midway through
second half of the issue is devoted to the possibility of Kate Kane and Reneé
Montoya renewing their relationship. This involves six pages reminding the
reader that Kate and Reneé are lesbians, in case the preceding 17 issues failed
to make it clear.
I hear there is a Batwoman TV series in the
making. Yay. I hope it’s better than the comic book series, but given the track
record of the CW DC shows, I’m not holding my breath. I think we can expect to
see lots of carefully choreographed fight scenes in dimly lit warehouses, and
plenty of social justice preaching in between.
one thing I do appreciate about Batwoman is that she is not a super-cop like
Batman. She’s a soldier, and thinks and acts like one. It perhaps gives her an
edge Batman lacks. That may make her flawed as a character, but I don’t mind
that. Some of my best friends are flawed.
