** Also, Kate's killing of Cartwright had ''absolutely nothing to do with her being Batwoman''. It had to do with her being a grief-stricken, horrified, rage-blinded young woman whom Cartwright ''deliberately provoked'' into going too far. That wasn't the act of an overly-ruthless vigilante, it was the act of a fallible human being.

Added DiffLines:

*** The ''[[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries Arkham]]'' series included the Riddler speculating that Batman financed himself by stealing from the criminals he caught; obviously that's a warped perspective on his nemesis, but that does provide at least one alternative explanation for how the Bats finance their operations that doesn't include them being rich themselves.

Added DiffLines:

*** This is a world where scumbag criminals can bodge together freeze-rays and fear-inducing gases. If they can do it without being billionaires, Batwoman can whip up some gear without being one also. Plus, the only vehicle she's been reported to operate is a ''motorcycle'', which would likely make people assume she's significantly less wealthy than her predecessor, who rode around in customized Bat-vehicles of all sorts.

Added DiffLines:

** He's probably come up with better tools for the job in the past 15 years. Surgery itself has advanced enormously in that time, as have preservation techniques like plastination.

Added DiffLines:

*** Why would anyone necessarily think that Batman or Batwoman are rich? The public isn't that knowledgeable about the equipment they use, so the gear could be stolen for all they know. Or even homemade. Kate's arrival in Gotham also doesn't seem to have been major news at all, and it doesn't seem that she's a well-known figure in the Arrowverse anyway; even Oliver, someone who's actually in her same social class, had no idea who she was in ''Elseworlds''.

Added DiffLines:

** But how many lesbians come from rich families or had the money to pay for the equipment in Gotham and arrived in the city right around the time Batwoman appeared? Kate Kane is the direct cousin to the missing billionaire Bruce Wayne, appears to have taken over his company somehow, and is ex-military who was kicked out for being a lesbian.

Added DiffLines:

**** Do you think she wouldn't, y'know... check that they're telling the truth first, assuming she would even care in the first place? And ''again'', she didn't let Parker go. Parker did not benefit from her crimes, and there's no scenario where she gets to just walk away with no punishment.
