Selina Kyle was the Cat, and before the less feline, skin-tight body suit and goggles, she dressed up like an old lady to steal stuff.

Early depictions show her with a cat head and bright yellow cape before the costume evolved.

This section could use a little refining:

She was given her first proper backstory ten years after her introduction in BATMAN #62 (1950) which established she was an amnesiac who had worked as a flight attendant during a flight that had crashed. The story, however, was later proven to be a lie Selina had made up in order to garner sympathy for her life of crime.

The first sentence is fine, but the second sentence should clarify that her Golden Age origin was retconned in an after-the-fact Earth-Two story (albeit a good one), Brave and the Bold #197.



Catwoman had a sidekick named Catgirl (Kitrina Falcone)


Catwoman was banned by the Comics Code Authority

Detective Comics #211 was Catwoman’s last appearance for over a decade.


Batman #332 (Feb 1981 cover date) featured Catwoman’s first solo story, 40 years after Selina’s first appearance.



After Detective Comics #211 (1954), Selina didn’t reappear until, of all places, Lois Lane #70 (1966). From my understanding, Batwoman was essentially introduced in 1956 to replace Catwoman as Batman’s love interest.

There’s a stalagmite in the Batcave that kinda looks like a cat. Batman once showed it to Catwoman as an awkward way of expressing his love for her.

In Batman 1940 #15, Selina confesses to Batman that she’s in love with Bruce Wayne and the only way that she’d give up her life of crime would be if he returned her feelings. So, as one does, Bruce proposes and they become engaged! Except, he’s in love with Linda Page, not Selina. Once she finds this out, Selina, betrayed, leaves Bruce and returns to her life of crime, doubling her efforts and making quite the name for herself. ::catwoman_hv_2::
