The Batarangs are non-lethal throwing weapons, similar to shurikens or boomerangs; they are the signature weapons used by Bruce Wayne and Kate Kane, as Batman and Batwoman respectively.

History

When Bruce first started crime-fighting as the dark knight, he created non-lethal weapons for his crusade which he stores in the Bat-Belt.[1]

When Kate took over for her cousin, she had Luke Fox create her own batarangs. The only difference between the two are Kate's are thicker and sharper.[2][3][4]

While Hush was shooting at her, Batwoman threw a batarang at him and it stuck him in the leg, hurting him enough to make him flee. Later, Jacob Kane found the weapon as evidence of the battle.[5]
