** Some have mistakenly assumed that Kate was straight in the comics and made homosexual to cater to what they call [="SJWs"=]. Kate Kane was actually written this way since her introduction in 2006.



** The announcement at [=ComicCon=] stating that Batman will not initially make an appearance soured a lot of fans.

** Several critics have noted that the Batsuit Kane wears in the pilot makes her head look very large compared to the rest of her body.

** Several critics have noted that the Batsuit Kane wears in the pilot makes her head look very large compared to the rest of her body. Then again, it was a work in progress that, in-universe, was made to fit her in a short span of time.


** Kate herself has gotten this reaction, with a fair number of people not realizing that she originated in the comics over a decade prior, and/or isn't a genderswapped version of Bruce. On top of that, the comics version is a revamp of an older character (though she went by ''Kathy'' Kane and was considerably less Jewish or lesbian, Batwoman's been around since 1956! They're not the same character ''anymore'' after a Creator/GrantMorrison storyline established that both Kathy and Kate exist, but the point is, she's ''even more'' OlderThanTheyThink than they... think; decades older than some elements considered quite essential to the bat-mythos. She's been seen outside the comics, too - a more antiheroish version in 2003's ''WesternAnimation/BatmanMysteryOfTheBatwoman'' and a villainous version with a totally different civilian identity in 2008-11's ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold.'')

** "Did you know she's a woman?"[[labelnote:Explanation]]The first trailer gave a significant amount of attention to Kate being a woman, arguably to the point of pandering, including the background music literally stating "I'm a woman!" Many comments joked that the trailer was being [[SarcasmMode subtle]] with its message.[[/labelnote]]

Added DiffLines:

*** Given that the first few episodes are her coming of age as a heroine, it could be argued they are showing a [[IncrediblyLamePun Bat mitzvah]].


* CriticalDissonance: The show's pilot episode was particularly divisive. As of the series premiere, critics largely think the series [[SoOkayItsAverage doesn't do much to set itself apart from the other CW superhero shows]] with a 72% Rotten Tomatoes rating. General viewers, however, largely disliked the pilot with a 10% rating, being far less forgiving of the show's apparent lack of appeal.

* CaptainObviousReveal: Anyone with even rudimentary knowledge of the Batwoman comics would know that [[spoiler:Alice is Elizabeth Kane. It very much seems that waiting until the pilot's last few minutes to reveal they NeverFoundTheBody was an attempt to throw off the scent]]. Luckily they put the reveal right in the first episode rather than making us wait weeks on end.
