Kathy Kane has arrived! Today, The CW released our first glimpse at Ruby Rose's Batwoman, who is set to make her live-action debut during this year's Arrowverse crossover in December.

Take a look below at Rose in her full costume, which (we might add) looks mighty faithful to the version depicted in the comics.

Rose quit social media after news of her casting broke in early August. Some claimed she wasn't a good enough actor, others said Batwoman could not be a lesbian, while more still bleated that she wasn't "gay enough" to portray the first mainstream LGBTQ character in the DC Universe.

Fortunately, the good people at The CW are sticking by their casting choice and are pleased with Rose's work, which will introduce the Arrowverse to Gotham City for the first time.

“[Ruby] is terrific in the role,” producer Greg Berlanti told The Hollywood Reporter. “And we’re excited for people to see the story.”

Titled "Elseworlds," the upcoming annual crossover begins on Sunday, Dec. 9, and runs through Tuesday, Dec. 11. It is set to be strung across Supergirl, Arrow, and The Flash, but not Legends of Tomorrow and Black Lightning.

In addition to Rose's Batwoman, another first will be the introduction of Lois Lane, played by Grimm's Elizabeth Tulloch. She'll star opposite Tyler Hoechlin, who is reprising his role as Clark Kent/Superman.
