Mysterious Skeleton Figure in Batwoman Season 3 Finale

While Ryan was apparently able to cure her psychotic brother (unlike the character Marquis is inspired by), she was unable to save journalist Dana Dewitt, who was in the now toxic area of ​​the explosion, from a seemingly monstrous figure that emerged. of the wreckage. The creature that killed Dewitt looked almost like a zombie, with the bones of its limbs completely exposed.

Another possibility is that the creature is actually the radioactive enemy known as Doctor Phosphorus. Dr. Alexander Sartorius was a nuclear physicist who was transformed into Doctor Phosphorus after an accident at the power plant he worked at left his skeleton visible through his irradiated skin. Phosphorus is also the inspiration behind the batman beyond villain, Blight. The fact that the character emerged in a radioactive location could indicate that Phosphorus is indeed the identity of the terrifying new enemy.


Additionally, another skeleton-like villain with strong ties to Batwoman is Mister Bones. Bones is primarily associated with being the director of the Department of Extranormal Operations, who blackmailed Kate Kane into finding out Batman’s true identity by holding his twin sister, Alice, hostage. He also believed he was the illegitimate child of Jacob Kane, thus making him Kate’s half-brother. Bones’ metahuman powers render his flesh and organs transparent, exposing his skeleton. In addition, its skin is poisonous to anyone who touches it. Bones also fits the show’s description of the deadly character, but his connection to Batwoman in the comics might make him the likeliest candidate.


Although a Season 4 renewal has yet to be announced by The CW, that hasn’t stopped fans from theorizing about the identity of the new enemy. Regardless of whether viewers will ever find out the mysterious figure’s name, they can then see Batwoman in the Arrowverse’s new comic book crossover event. Earth Prime.
