The night crept over the Gotham City calmly like a silken scarf. From the distance, rhythmical clacking of the city subway echoes, blended between the sounds of police sirens, chaos of the traffic jams and barks of strayed dogs. Fumes of the factories, the smog, the waste and the thick led sky. This, is my city; this is my jungle. For all of you who might not know, the name is Selina… Selina Kyle. Who am I actually? Perhaps you caught a glimpse of me in your wildest fantasies… and your most hidden fears. Because this is my jungle. And in that jungle, I am the meanest cat of them all. I am – the Catwoman; hear me roar!

Fixture in Gotham City since her debut in the Spring of 1940, Catwoman’s career has seen her fulfill a number of roles within the caped crusader’s world, but always with the same effect: Catwoman is trouble, but the kind of trouble that Batman needs :). Historically a supervillainess, the character was created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger, partially inspired by Kane’s cousin, Ruth Steel, as well as actress Jean Harlow.
Catwoman in her early comic book editions…
…and her new modern look !
Born in Gotham City, Selina Kyle’s or Catwoman’s early life was filled with tragedy. In her youth, her mother committed suicide, and her father drank himself to death. Living on the streets and surviving through petty crime, she eventually used her sharp wits and amazing natural ability as a gymnast to become the slickest cat burglar the police department had ever seen. With Batman’s arrival in Gotham, she quickly found herself smitten with the caped crusader and took on a costumed persona of her own. In turn, Batman returned her romantic feelings, but became conflicted with his role as a crime fighter, opting to let her escape on a regular basis!
