Batwoman (The CW) – The CW loves a superhero show (by my count, this makes five in the CW’s DC Comics Universe), but “Batwoman” may be the twist the genre needs. With Ruby Rose in the lead, we may not be getting the first gay character in a superhero TV series, but she is the first gay title character — and that’s an important distinction. “Batwoman” starts three years after Batman disappeared from Gotham, a city now under siege by the Alice in Wonderland gang. Bruce Wayne’s cousin, Kate Kane (Rose), also previously exiled from the city, returns to help find Sophie, a missing police officer Kate loves. She discovers cousin Bruce’s hidden Batcave and realizes what she must do.
