The modern elegy bears a distinctive mark: it “suggests both the negation of received codes (‘modern’) and their perpetuation (‘elegy’)” as its writers “make it new but make it old, rebel against generic norms but reclaim them through rebellion.” This is suggestive of what is at work in Greg Rucka, JH Williams III, and Dave Stewart’s comic Batwoman: Elegy (2010). At its center, Batwoman: Elegy introduces the tensions that Ramazani argues are inherent to the genre. Batwoman: Elegy remembers a character once erased from DC Comics. However, the elegiac gesture of the comic extends further: Batwoman: Elegy provides a unique perspective on the passing of the Golden, Silver, and Bronze Ages of Comics as well as the three waves of feminism.
