The Many Faces of Catwoman

Golden Age (Earth 2)Edit

Very little is known of the past of Selina Kyle. At one point it is stated that she was a former flight attendant who suffered from amnesia after a blow to the back of her head during a plane crash that changed his personality, but later reveals this was a lie.

What is certain is that Selina began her career in costumed crime as "The Cat" (soon after changing her name to Catwoman), a thief who crossed paths with Batman on more than one occasions but found herself unable to defeat him. Later, she lies and tells Batman that her life of crime was started by a head injury after deciding to get out of a life of crime and hoping that Batman would go easy on her. Catwoman even ends up becoming an ally of Batman, sparking a romantic chemistry between the two.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Some incarnations are meta-human.
