Batman is Now a Woman, Thanks to Frank Miller

In the highly anticipated new comic-book sequel to Miller’s beloved graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns, Batman has apparently gone through some changes…

In the inaugural issue of Dark Knight III: The Master Race, out this Wednesday, it’s revealed that former-Robin Carrie Kelly has stepped into the famous cowl.


“I just think the suit looks a lot better on a girl,” writer and artist Frank Miller said to The New York Post. “Dick Grayson [the original male Robin] in my series made a good sidekick, but he never measured up. He went insane and became a bad guy,” Miller says. “Carrie is Batman’s equal.”

The former Robin was introduced in Miller’s moody 1986 series that featured a 55-year-old Batman coming out of retirement to clean up Gotham. It’s among the best-selling and most influential superhero stories of all time.

The new sequel, “Dark Knight III,” is being co-written by Miller with veteran comic book scribe Brian Azzarello, but Miller says the idea to replace Bruce Wayne with a woman was hatched back in the 1980s.
