Batwoman Star Rachel Skarsten Debuts as Alice in New Poster
After Batman’s sudden disappearance, the world is waiting for Bruce Wayne’s cousin Kate Kane to step up and become Gotham’s vigilante. In The CW’s Batwoman, the titular character will face some fierce enemies, with arch-villain Alice in front. A new poster for the upcoming series has made its way online, featuring Kate Kane’s sworn enemy. “Alice has other plans for Gotham,” reads the caption as the poster shows Rachel Skarsten’s character smiling slyly dressed in a white jacket, with a spray-painted Batwoman logo just below. Additionally, we got also the premiere date at the bottom.
You can check the full poster out below.
In the comics, Alice’s real name is Elizabeth Kane, daughter of Jacob Kane and his wife, Gabrielle Kane. She is the twin sister of Katherine Kane, but the two grew separately since they were kids. Years later, they meet once both of them had already taken on their alter-egos, locking horns as Alice and Batwoman. Alice made her first appearance in 2009 in Detective Comics #854, becoming the leader of the Wonderland Gang, a Lewis Carroll-themed criminal organization. She is an expert in manipulating people and is also enough of a physical threat to take on Batwoman in a fight.
In the upcoming first season of the show, Alice won’t be the only villain who will begin to target Kate Kane after she becomes Batwoman. The series will feature also the character of Tommy Elliot, who is better known as the supervillain Hush.
Batwoman will debut on October 6 on the CW. What do you think of Alice as the main villain for the series? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
