|Real name:||Roxanne Sutton|
|Voiced by:||Charity James|
Professional stuntwoman Roxanne Sutton became the thrill-seeking criminal Roxy Rocket.
At the height of her career, Roxanne regularly doubled for several famous action heroines, executing a series of spectacular stunts. Athletic, adventuresome, and completely fearless, Roxanne's growing addiction to danger became the undoing of her professional career. She insisted on doing ever-more dangerous stunts, until she became so reckless that no insurance company would cover her.
Unable to continue working in films, Roxanne turned to crime to satisfy her needs, both financial and personal. Donning a costume and mounting a custom rocket-propelled vehicle, she adopted the name "Roxy Rocket" and committed a series of daring heists in Gotham City. Often she would deliberately commit her thefts in plain sight, relying on her guile and the speed of her rocket ship to let her make her escape (and because she always preferred a chase to a clean getaway).
She first met Batman when she raided a Wayne Enterprises press conference announcing the company had acquired a one-of-a-kind painting. In the adventure following, Batman challenged Roxy and beat her after an unsuccessful attempt to seduce him. She also did business with the Penguin, using him as a fence.
Background information Edit
Roxy Rocket was created by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini for the first Annual of The Batman Adventures, the tie-in comic of Batman: The Animated Series, in 1994. They liked the character so much that they wrote her into the series. In the Annual, Roxy was caught by Batman and he had high hopes for her reform. Sadly, when Catwoman impersonated her, she had to run from the cops and turned to crime again.
