25She Debuted In 1956
For comic book fans who already know Kate Kane, they might see her as a relatively new hero. In reality, Katherine “Kathy” Kane was a Gotham socialite who made her comic book debut in 1956. Created by Edward Hamilton and Sheldon Moldoff, Kathy was
an heiress who found herself by the caped crusader. She decided to find a way to fight the crime in Gotham herself and she did it by disguising her bat-accessories as everyday items.
Using a utility purse instead of a belt, she had her tools disguised as lipstick, hairnets, and makeup compacts.
