Bleeding Cool News noticed something about Dr. Victoria October, a new character introduced into the Batman universe in Detective Comics #948: she’s trans.
The character appears to be a scientist who specializes in the study of creepy monsters. Probably a good career in the DC Comics universe.
She doesn’t use the word “trans”, but from the dialog, it’s super obvious. She refers to her “pupal stage” (what a caterpillar goes through before becoming a butterfly) and mentions her “deadname” (pre-transition name).
[Batman and I] go way back… That was my pupal stage, before I came into myself. I did appreciate the card.
My deadname didn’t have half the panache, I’m afraid.
