    Default Preferred identity for Betty / Bette Kane?

    She first came on the scene (as "Betty Kane") with the identity of "Bat-Girl" in 1961.

    When Bette was reintroduced in the post-CoIE DC continuity, she had become "Flamebird"

    During the New 52, Bette took on yet another new identity: that of "Hawkfire".

    Which do you prefer for Bette, or do you feel she still needs a whole new costumed identity invented for her?

    If the Batwoman TV show gives her counterpart Mary Hamilton (I assume they dropped the Bette part of her name because Alice's real name is Beth) a superhero alter ego, I reckon the comics would end up following suit with it. Flamebird would make sense as it's the name she's most associated with.

    Flamebird is perfect for her. No reason to change it.

    My problem with "Flamebird" is that first I think of Jimmy Olsen, then I think of Ak-Var from the Bottle City of Kandor.

    I liked the sound of Hawkfire, even though it basically just rearranging the words.
    Just. Be. Nice.

    Gotham Girl would have been a good name for Bette...especially with her Bat-Girl costume.

    I kind of think of all of them, but Bette is Flamebird to me, over them.

    The funny or off-putting to me at least, thing about Hawkfire, is that there is another DC character, I believe from the Firestorm cast of characters who is.... Firehawk, and that is the main reason I've not wanted it for Bette.

    Flamebird, but they need to actually do something with the character instead of toss her into limbo all the time.
