Batwoman’s origin storyline concludes in Detective 860 (Feb. 10), by Rucka and Williams III.
Kate has been operating as a vigilante, but without any costume or even a clear goal. Renee runs into her in a biker bar, and can’t fathom what is going on with her. Her father figures it out, and Kate insists that she has found her purpose, her way to serve. Jake gives in, but insists she get better training. Kate spends two years being trained by the best in the world, while her father builds a base of operations, and creates a suit for her as well. What a nice dad.
This makes it all the more crushing when Batwoman gets the results of a DNA comparison between her and Alice, and it confirms that they are twins. Her father lied to her about Beth’s death all along.
Rucka and Hamner continue the Question story, as Zeiss starts tracking her down.
After a good tour busting ass and taking names, Renee and Helena return to Tot’s place. The Huntress had worked with Vic Sage, the original Question, but had never met Tot.
Very nice ending, with the women saying they weren’t followed, and Zeiss’ arrival immediately after.
The story continues in the next issue.
