Ok folks, now that all episodes of the Elseworlds Crossover event were shown, this weeks post will be done today instead of posting it on the usual sunday.
Because nobody should be kept waiting to see this material 😉
I do have two videos and one big picture gallery for you. For the first video I combined all Batwoman scenes in one video and I did the same with the Kate Kane scenes in the second video.
My opinions on all of this can be found on the last part of the post.
I recommend that you watch the video with Kate Kane first, for a better understanding…

My opinion on the Crossover:
—> In general:
It was a lot of FUN! Many funny scenes, sooo many Easter Eggs (Batman villains, Smallville, Legends of Tomorrow and more) and a pretty good story with some really good action scenes as well. I think it was a good idea to make this years Crossover a little “smaller” with just 3 episodes from 3 shows. I like it when you don’t have too many characters in it. With the Legends of Tomorrow it was a little too much for my taste.
The idea with the alternative realities is pretty cool. It was very interesting to see some of the cast in other roles. The scene with Kate and Kara was very important to introduce Kate to the Arrowverse and give her some depths before presenting Batwoman. And that brings me to my biggest interest in this years crossover….
It is no big surprise to most of you that I have a “thing” for masked women. 😉
So, the idea of bringing Batwoman into the Crossover this year, fueled my anticipation BIG time. Since months I really was looking forward to see her on the screen. Instead of most heroines and villainesses I saw in the past on TV, comics and the internet, Batwoman has a “real” mask. A mask that actually really covers her secret identity (and a wig for even more cover). She is one of my favorites among Batgirl, Catwoman and Black Scorpion. And the idea to introduce Batwoman in the Crossover and (and hopefully!!!) giving her her own TV show next year…..seems fucking fantastic to me!
As I heard that Ruby Rose would play her, I didn’t really know what to think of it. I had seen only very little of her and decided to watch/re-watch more of her the last months (Triple X 3, Wick 2, Resident Evil: Final Chapter, Meg). And now I am very happy about the fact that she got the role. Of course her part wasn’t very big (around 8 Minutes as Batwoman AND Kate Kane), BUT I really think she will/would do a great job in her own TV-series.
The mask/cowl looks fantastic and her costume is pretty good. The Batwoman symbol looks really good on her. Ok, I would tried something with leather and rubber on the suit (like the Batgirl suit from Batman and Robin or Birds of Prey…but perhaps that would have been too much for some folks 😉 )
And that possible TV-series….would be a DREAM coming true for me. Always wanted a big TV show with a masked heroine in the main role. The only other two I know are “Queen of Swords” and “Black Scorpion” and both had only one season each, which lay back quite some time now.
—> Unmasking action:
Well, for less than 4 minutes of Batwoman, I think we got quite a lot!
Kate walks over to her costume and cowl. Really cool to see her standing before it.
And actually Batwoman got UNMASKED by Supergirl. Ok, the mask didn’t come off physically, BUT the very curious Supergirl uses the X-ray vision to see behind the cowl of Batwoman, finding Kate Kane under it.
But nice as Supergirl is, she easily gives up her own secret identity to Batwoman as well. And both already have a strong bond to each other, so they both know they can trust each other with their secrets.
And the possibilities for more unmasking action with Batwoman in that possible TV-show are…..ENDLESS. 🙂
Ok, enough from me for now.
What do you think about the Crossover and especially Batwoman in it?

P.S.: You may have notice the change in the picture headline on top of the blog already… 😉
Well, this year I went to it too…..and I wanna write something about it and have prepared a little video.
This one was actually my second Comic con. And compared with last year…..hmh, I would say I was/am a little disappointed.
Ok, doing something for the first time is always a little more exciting I guess, but the main reason for my disappointment is clearly the lack of …..(well-) masked women.
Because to be honest, that is my main motivation as it wasn’t very cheap to travel to Dortmund and buy a ticket for the con.
What was really good this year were the Hollywood guests (check the video) and that it wasn’t too crowded with now 3 instead of last years 2 halls for the Comic Con.
And of course…seeing so many folks dressed up in often great costumes is always very interesting and/or sexy (in case of some really sexy dressed women).
But back to my main motivation:
There was NOT ONE masked woman with a really good costume (from what I saw).
There were two Spider-Gwens/Girls with good costumes, but without masks (DAMN! The mask is an/the essential part!). There were two Catwomen with really cheap costumes, not sexy at all.
And I didn’t find a single Batgirl, Batwoman, Spoiler or Canary! In general there were way too less DC characters around. And with the upcoming Batwoman appearance on the Crossover in a few days I thought there would be one or two at least…. Weird. Well, I only visited the Comic Con on sunday and not on saturday and sunday. Perhaps there were more masked women on saturday…don’t know.
So many costumes from Star Wars, Games of Thrones, Walking Dead, japanese Mangas, Horror movies. I guess I need to visit some sort of DC/Marvel-only Comic con, but I guess that doesn’t exist. 😆
Ok, I do know that a Batgirl/Catwoman costume that I find really attractive is pretty expensive. And that it is much easier to dress up like Harley Quinn for example. And ok, making a really good cosplay of Batgirl or Catwoman for example is tougher as most others. But there wasn’t a single rubber cowl on all these women…
Perhaps I will check out the “Heroes and Villains” fanfest in London or when it comes to Germany one day.
Next year the german comic con will be two times in Dortmund. Hmh, I have to think about it. But I guess I will attend at least one of them.
Not so many other chances to find a Batgirl or Catwoman in real life 😆
