Selina Kyle, also known as Catwoman, is a major anti-villainess of the DC comics Batman franchise. Catwoman is a thief and burglar who dresses in a cat costume and is skilled in martial arts combat. Despite her villainy, Catwoman retains a strict moral code that has led to her occasionally siding with good. She is an on-and-off ally of Batman, and the two have shared a romantic relationship over the years.

History

Selina Kyle has gone through numerous origins to explain why she turned to a life of crime. Her current portrayal has her being an orphan who took to petty thievery to survive after the death of her parents. She improved her fighting abilities and donned a cat-suit before taking on the name of "Catwoman". She became one of Batman's earliest foes in his crime-fighting career, and the two have shared a complicated and dubious relationship as the years progressed.

Selina Kyle has a close relationship with a younger woman named Holly Robinson, who was a prostitute until Selina rescued her and took her under her wing. The two became close friends, with Selina acting as Holly's mentor and training her in self-defense. At one point, when Selina Kyle temporarily took a break from her role as Catwoman, Holly became her replacement.

Over the years, Catwoman and Batman have become romantically involved; in fact, Batman was the one who inspired Selina to become the infamous cat burglar. The two have shared an on-again, off-again relationship.

Powers and Abilities

Catwoman is a skilled combatant whose martial arts skills rival that of Batman. She is proficient in athletics and acrobatics. She is an expert burglar and excels at heists, and is known as the best cat-burglar in Gotham City. In addition, Catwoman has an affinity for cats, who often aid her in her criminal activities. She is also an effective seductress and "femme fatale", as well as a master of disguise.
