The Weeping Woman is one of Batwoman's early rogues, based on Mexican folklore.
The Weeping Woman is based on the Mexican folk tale of "La Llorona" in which a woman named Maria drowned her children so she could be with the man she loved, but the man rejects her, leading her to commit suicide. In heaven, she was asked where her children were, and when she didn't have them, she wasn't allowed into the afterlife with out them. She was doomed to a ghostly fate of wandering the Earth, weeping, and searching for her children, abducting those who don't listen to their parents.
