In 2016, DC announced yet another major relaunch/reboot of their titles, this time under the brand "Rebirth." However, Steph fans rejoiced when not only did the Violet Vindicator remain a fixture in the DC universe, but was joining "Batwoman's boot camp" in Detective Comics, one of the flagship titles of DC Comics. Written by James Tynion IV, the writer behind Steph's return in Batman Eternal, Steph joined Cassandra Cain and Tim Drake as part of Batman and Batwoman's team.
