Fictional character biography[edit]

Bat-Cow was originally a bat that was turned into a cow by Robin during an investigation on a slaughterhouse, which the cow was sent to. Robin wanted to keep the cow and named it Bat-Cow. Batman decided they would keep the cow. During a later investigation, Batman discovered it had mind-controlling radiation inside of it, leading him to attempt to get rid of the cow. Robin, however would not allow him to hurt the cow.[1]

After the events of Robin's death, Bat-Cow and Robin's dog felt a great loss in morale. Alfred Pennyworth and Nightwing had to take care of the cow. Later after Nightwing's disappearance, Alfred was the only caretaker of Bat-Cow.

Bat-Cow, complete with cape, spent time on a Wayne Enterprises-owned dairy farm. It was there the cow encountered the cosmic-powered "Forever People." One of them seemed to gain guidance from Bat-Cow's actions, namely when Bat-Cow gave one of the Forever People a scarecrow's hat.[2]

Bat-Cow forms a friendship with Titus, a dog and household cat.
