    I hope so too! I know Oberon would love it! And as a Hawkfire fan (hahaha, like, the only one) I would love to see a nod to her Batwoman history.

    No your not alone! I've recently discovered Bette and i have not been dissapointed. I'm a sucker for obscure characters. She really is amazing. I really love that she is very persistent and doesn't let people tell her what to do.

    One quibble: she wasn't "Batgirl". She was "Bat-Girl" (with a dash) and originally went by "Betty" (not Bette) when she first appeared in the 1960s.




    I first discovered her in reprinted stories (most in b&w) in a bargain book I got back in the early 1970s.



    As for the change from "Betty" to "Bette", that may have happened when she appeared in Teen Titans back in the +/- mid-1970s?

    Hooray! Her determination in the Batwoman series was what endeared her to me.

    I'm curious - do people pronounce her name "Bet" or "Bettee"?

    I love Bette! In any version. I also love that it ticks Barbara fans off to know Barbara wasn't the first "Batgirl" (Bat-Girl). and I love Barbara! It's fun though.

    I really hope the "Mary" on the new Batwoman show ends up being "Mary Elizabeth"...aka our Bette (or Betty).

    Same. I'm going to be crushed if they DON'T have Bette on the TV show somehow.

    She always kills it with her costumes.

    She's Bette. The audition scene for Mary and her description are both very close to comic!Bette.
