Today, this is post 1 of 2 for today!
First I wanna present one of the weirdest unmaskings in comic history!
In this old comic Kathy Keene is married to Bruce Wayne and wants to assist him as a crime fighter.
She puts on a Batman costume she fixed so that it would fit her and becomes the first Batwoman.
But soon there is trouble….

Well, that is weird for quite some reasons!
Seemingly her cowl isn’t attached to her cape! Why is that? And it just flies away? It doesn’t tear or rip?
This way it looks like her cowl was some kind of hat without a chin strap or a connection to the cape.
And you clearly see the age of this comic, she is a rather helpless woman, stumbles on the scene, calls Batman “darling”, gets unmasked and thereby ruins his carreer as well…just in a matter of seconds.
The current Batwoman (from the comics and the TV show) was a highly modified version of this one and debuted in 2006.
I used to know from which comic issue this was taken….
Can someone who knows help out here? I would add that info to the post.
And now I wanna present a newer and modified version that focuses on the UNMASKING from a talented artist made on DeviantArt:

In this one the whole cape flies away, what makes at least a lot more sense!
However “unmasked by a wind machine” is still a very ODD unmasking type 😉
You should check out more of his work, as he focuses on masked heroines and their unmaskings:
What do you think of this unmasking and the different version of this scene?
