I disagree, when you're already facing credibility problems this isn't the type of sloppiness you want to deal with it.

Not a huge deal, but, still an unforced error.

The thing is, since Kate and Kathy are basically the same name, there's an argument to be made that no error was made at all.

Well its.. more of a question of how long you'll last from here, isn't it? We usually PM Jude with our new bets when the Zechs Counter is reset.

Judging from the PMs, I shouldn't have mention it. :oops:

Again, go call Howard Stern "Howie", and see his adverse reaction.

For the purposes of telling one Batwoman from the other, the old one is "Kathy" and the current one is "Kate". Dan screwed up.

I think everyone is missing out on the bigger picture here. Zechs was locked in a room by people representing DC. At first, he had no idea if they were ever going to let him out and then they attempted to brainwash him into their way of thinking. You can't be upset with him for wanting to blow off a little steam. The poor guy has been through enough!

If you want to split hairs, but they don't call the current Batwoman "Kathy" in the book, or in interviews, or... well, ever.... and for a good reason.

As far as this goes, I don't think Dan actually doesn't know what her name is. I think he clearly just flubbed it. Kate.. Kathy.. it's close enough that it's not a big deal. But it speaks to the bigger narrative of this whole mess, and Didio's overall cluelessness.

"Dah-ta, look at this."
"...DAY-ta."
"Huh??"
"My name. It is pronounced 'DAY-ta'."
"Oh??"
"You called me 'Dah-ta'."
*chuckles* "What's the difference??"

"One is my name. The other is NOT."

Hardly. It demonstrates that getting a person's name right is indeed important. :P

There's also an argument that since two different people share the same alter ego that confusion was created were none was needed. Magnified by the fact that your credibility is already in question.
