Rucka and Williams III begin a three-part story that goes into the background of Kate Kane, as we learn more about what drove her to become Batwoman.

The story begins with flashbacks, as we see Kate’s mother, and her sister Beth.  The twins are army brats, moved around as their parents get assigned to different bases around the world.

Almost this entire issue is a flashback.  In the present, Batwoman hunts for Alice’s body, without success, and bars her father from seeing her, with more success.  You might think she would want to question him about Alice implying that they are sisters, but she doesn’t.  I suspect she doesn’t want to know the answers.

After being assigned to NATO headquarters in Brussels, the two girls, and their mother, are kidnapped by terrorists.

Jake Kane leads the assault team that frees Kate. But she is the only one left alive in the room.  And despite her father telling her not to look, the images she sees scars her for life.

The story continues in the next issue.

Despite the bad guys killing off everyone she questions, Renee still manages to find the ship that is being used to smuggle the women into sex slavery.

And Renee is also smart enough not to try to take over an entire cargo ship on her own, having called the police to back her up.

There is even a happy ending, as the brother who hired Renee is re-united with her sister.

Part 2 of Pipeline, as the Question continues her investigation of the smuggling ring, begins next issue.
