Ed's Notes: An interesting and conflicted character that could make for a very interesting anti-hero PC. Her Drawback seals it: She's fine when her father's wishes are "marry Batman," or "bear him a son." What is she supposed to do when he father's wishes are "kill Batman" or "leave him in the desert to die?" And really, she's not a "foe" of Batman, so much as an unreliable ally. (Which can be even more dangerous at times!) But The Dark Knight Rises portrayed her very differently than the comics did.
As an aside... One of these days I want to run a campaign where Maxima, Star Sapphire and Talia team up and come into town set on marrying Superman, Green Lantern and Batman and won't take "no" for an answer. What's more... I'm not sure who the PC's would even BE in that scenario... the Girls, or the Guys! (Perhaps depends on the gender of the PC's. Lol)
