    Comic book heroine Batwoman is to make a comeback as a "lipstick lesbian" who moonlights as a crime fighter, a DC Comics spokesman has confirmed.

    Batwoman - real name Kathy Kane - will appear in 52, a year-long DC Comics publication that began this month.

    In her latest incarnation, she is a rich socialite who has a romantic history with another 52 character, ex-police detective Renee Montoya.

    52 will be published in the UK as a graphic novel by Titan Books in 2007.

    The series is set in a world in which established superheroes like Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman no longer play a part.

    The new-look Batwoman is just one of a wave of ethnically and sexually diverse characters entering the DC Comics universe.

    Others include Mexican teenager Blue Beetle - who replaces the character's previous white incarnation - and the Great Ten, a government-sponsored team of Chinese superheroes.

    Regular characters Firestorm and The Atom, meanwhile, have been reinvented as black and Asian heroes respectively.

    The characters are part of a wider effort to broaden the make-up of comic-book creations in line with society as a whole.

    Batwoman, who first appeared in July 1956, has not been seen since September 1979 when she was killed by the League of Assassins and the Bronze Tiger.

    Ah so if i had any urge to buy another DC comic again, its been shot down now. The black Superman was alot for me to swallow but now this is just stupid. One more genre of childhood tainted by Homo-nazis.

    Meh, they only do this to characters nobody cared about in the first place. Maybe it'll sell more comics, maybe it wont...
