Years ago, a chance encounter with Batman led Kate Kane to change her life and find her own sense of power as Batwoman. As one of the top heroes of Gotham City, Kate was invited by Batman to join his new team as they trained the heroes of tomorrow in the pages of Detective Comics. But one of the first threats they went up against was the Colony, an army unit of Batmen run by Kate’s renegade father, Jake Kane!
Now that Kate once again has her own Batwoman ongoing series, fans have had a peak at Kate’s future…and they may not like what they see! It appears that Kate is destined to follow her father as the new leader of the Colony, and now it’s time to find out more about that startling turn of events. CraveOnline’s exclusive preview for Batwoman # 6 jumps to a possible future in which Gotham City is ruled by Batman. Welcome to the Pax Batmana!
This issue was written by Marguerite Bennett and James Tynion IV, with art by Renato Arlem, and colors by Adriano Luca. Eddy Barrows and Eber Ferreira provided the primary cover while Michael Cho drew the open order variant cover for this issue. Here’s the official description from DC Comics:
