    Batwoman (real name Kate Kane) is the cousin of Bruce Wayne and the former protagonist and title character of Batwoman.

    Why She Doesn't Fit A Woman

    1. She mostly existed as Batman's replacement (which is then revealed that he left Gotham due to killing the Joker). But, she doesn't really feel like she is just like him.
    2. Her characterization is very unfaithful and looks nothing like his comic counterpart.
    3. Her actress, Ruby Rose does an exceptionally poor job portraying her and even her replacement, Wallis Day is no better.
    4. Her physical hairstyle in the show is very unrecognizable from the comics where she had red hair (which the show was just brown).
    5. She looks and acts like an angsty emo boy
    6. She suffers from a poor grasp of the material and her origin story is changed from when she was a child kidnapped by gunmen from the comics to now going into a car accident of which Batman and the Joker were there (which later was revealed that Batman killed the Joker after that), which actually damages her characterization since the gunmen could’ve given her a reason to fight crime.
    7. She even treats her father, Jacob, Luke Fox, and Mary Hamilton very poorly, making her a mean girl.
    8. Despite being a protector of Gotham City, she is incompetent, annoying, and selfish, unlike Batman.
    9. She arrogantly believes that she is better than Batman despite her incompetence, but is often more of a killer when he choked August Cartwright to death for revealing that he chopped her mother's head (which not only completely goes against the main rule of Batman and bat-related family superheroes that don't kill anyone, but also makes her the true villain), and ruining her life.
    10. She steals Batman's gadgets. This also makes her a hypocrite as she says she "won't let a man take credit for a woman's work".
    11. She got upset that people thought she was Batman, showing she cares more about validation than protecting Gotham. People thinking she's Batman would have actually worked to her advantage as Kate Kane would be off the suspect list. People knowing she's just an imitator instead of the original Batman would embolden criminals as she hasn't earned their fear or respect.
    12. She gave an expensive watch to a homeless woman. This isn't a big deal, but it could lead to two bad possibilities: the woman could've been robbed and murdered for the watch or she could've spend it on illegal drugs to overdose on.
    13. She constantly lets Alice (her long lost sister named Beth) go despite her killing people.
    14. Her dialogue is incredibly dull and lifeless.
    15. She ends up leaving the show (until her actress was recast by Wallis Day) and being replaced with Ryan Wilder as the new mantle making her whole story arc pointless until the 14th episode of season 2.

    The Only Redeeming Quality

    1. Despite her hatred to Batman, she does cared his Earth 99 counterpart and she originally helped him due to accidentally electrocuted himself but Supergirl refused.
      • Even after his death, she regretted killing August and afraid doesn't wanted like him.
