Archived Pages from 20th Century!!
Batman, my favorite Comic book character, has a number of Web Pages dedicated
to him, there are few resources dedicated to Catwoman, by far his most
interesting nemesis. Certain Batman sources discuss Catwoman in passing
and I do have links related to Catwoman alone below, however I wished (with
the urging of my young daughter) to create a central resource for others
who enjoy Catwoman's appearances in the Batman titles and of course her
I favor Catwoman among the villains for the same reason I favor Batman.
Just as Bruce Wayne is neither a mutant or in the strictest terms a super
hero, so Selina Kyle is essentially 'normal'; a thief and former prostitute
(not getting into Crisis controversies here..) she chose to become Catwoman
expressing a deeply felt part of herself (and yes I realize these are fictional
characters), and her costume reflects this self expression. Further she
is a strong and independent, very self assured. I much prefer my daughter
pretending to be Catwoman around the house (Mag is 5 and her knowledge
of Catwoman is from the movie and the cartoon series- the comics are a
bit too violent for her yet...) pretending to fight Batman rather than
play some Victim who needs to be rescued by him. Perhaps villain is the
wrong word... anti-hero is better, someone who is out for her own interests,
not seeking to control those of others but yet will put them aside for
some greater reason (e.g., the recent Contagion series). So for my daughter
and for other Catwoman readers such as myself I have created these pages.

Please note this page concentrates mostly on the comics though there
are a resource or two from the movie and cartoon.

About Selina Kyle
Selina Kyle began her criminal career on the streets, as a prostitute.
She came from a broken home, yet her sister Maggie chose to make of herself
something quite different, becoming a nun. Selina and her sister are still
not close in the comics, though Selina did later save her sister from her
former pinp the small time hood, Stan. The turning point for Selina seems
to have come after being arrested as a young woman. The cop could have
leaned on her with some heavy speeches but instead gave her the name Ted
Grant as a man who could help her watch out for herself on the streets.
Grant, a former boxer, taught Selina self defense. During this time she
also learned how to handle a whip.
Selina always loved cats, so it was natural for her to make a costume
patterned after her beloved animals after being inspired by the news of
a new crime fighter in Gotham City, the Batman. Selina stopped hooking,
selling herself to be used by others and became a professional thief, standing
on her own and often against the one who inspired her to become a cat-
