Mother Panic, by Jody Houser and Tommy Lee Edwards, is about a new character who fights criminals as a high-tech masked vigilante in Gotham City. She wears a cape and a helmet with pointed ears, but her outfit is white, and she’s clearly unaffiliated with Batman and his allies. In fact, when the premise was initially revealed, nobody was really sure if this was the Gotham of DC’s Batman books, or a whole different take on that world.

However, it’s been set-up since the first issue that the Bat-Family have become aware of Mother Panic’s activities. And in this third issue, she and Batwoman come face to face, leading to a fight and some weird angry flirting.

This is the most direct crossover to happen thus far between the Young Animal line and the current DCU, though we don’t know whether Mother Panic will ever show up in other DC books, or if it’s a one-way street.

Mother Panic #3 is out February 15, and features a Gotham Radio backup story by Jim Krueger and Phil Hester, as well as a variant cover by Mingjue Helen Chen.

Here’s the official word from DC Comics:

Mother Panic is hot on the trail of the murderous artist Gala! Only one person stands in her way…Batwoman?! Is there a place for Violet among the heroes of Gotham City, or will her quest for vengeance take her down a darker path? This issue also features an original “Gotham Radio” back-up feature by Jim Krueger (JUSTICE) and Phil Hester (Green Arrow)!
