** In issue #21, Killer Croc fights Batwoman. Near the end of the battle, his narration box claims that he's broken Batwoman's jaw and some of her ribs, but she's shown being fully able to talk and doesn't appear in any pain whatsoever. She doesn't even take many hits during the fight. It's possible that Croc's description was just wishful thinking on his part, given his arc in that issue.

* DoubleStandardRapeSciFi: Kate was for a time hypnotized into an abusive sexual relationship with the vampire Nocturna. To make matters worse, this happened almost immediately after Kate broke up with Maggie. It's also mentioned that Kate’s been has had repeated blackouts recently, which means she’s likely been raped repeatedly. After Kate was broken free of the hypnosis (with the help of Red Alice/Beth Kane, her twin sister), Nocturna claims that subconsciously Kate wanted to had sex with her and [[EvilGloating gloats]] [[KickTheDog how she (Nocturna) enjoyed it]].

You don't... love me?"\\ '''Nocturna''': "Love you? I don't even ''like'' you. You were just so easy to snare.

ComicBook/PostCrisis continuity denied that Kathy Kane had ever been Batwoman. Apart from an InNameOnly inclusion in ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanMysteryOfTheBatwoman Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman]]'' and a few other cameos over the years, Batwoman was largely absent for several decades and only returned to the comics themselves in ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'', a weekly series started in 2006. The character had a cameo in issue #7 (June, 2006) and was fully introduced in subsequent issues. This Batwoman, Katherine "Kate" Kane, [[ContinuityReboot was introduced as a love interest and past girlfriend of Renee Montoya]], one of the main characters of the series. [[HollywoodHypeMachine Touted as the highest-profile gay superhero in the DCU]], she drifted from comic to comic after her original appearance until being cast as the frontrunner for ''DetectiveComics'' in 2009 with ComicBook/TheQuestion (none other than Renee herself by this point) serving as the second feature. She was replaced as the frontrunner by Batman at the conclusion of her arc and received a self-titled solo series to continue her story, with a oneshot issue #0 in November 2010, but her series suffered more than one delay and eventually launched as part of the DCUniverse's ComicBook/{{New 52}} series of #1s in September 2011. During the delay, she appeared in a minor supporting role in ''Batman, Inc.'' which also featured the original Kathy Kane character, ostensibly as an aunt to the current Batwoman. Additionally, she appears as a protagonist in the UsefulNotes/{{WWII}}-set ''ComicBook/DCComicsBombshells'' {{elseworld}} series.
