She Hulk #19-20 (1990)

Now this is the Steve Gerber I remember.  This issue introduces a female Batman, complete with a spoof origin where the orphaned future superhero is the daughter of hippies.

John Byrne introduced a Superman spoof concept, so here Gerber is extending it.

There’s also versions of various supporting Batman characters (Commissioner Gordon, Two-Face, etc.), and even a Darth Vader appearance at one point.

Obviously, it doesn’t go anywhere and never will.  We can’t have a Batman character running around Marvel.  (I mean, we already have the Squadron Supreme’s Nighthawk.)

Creators: Steve Gerber, Bryan Hitch
Grade: C-
