Catwoman Character Guide

Character Profile

I’ve got nine lives, I’m only a traitor in most of them.”-  Catwoman

Real Name: Selina Kyle
Gender: Female
Species: Human
Debut: Batman #1
Voice: Grey DeLisle

Master thief Selina Kyle has won the hearts of many men – including Batman. She sides with law and order when it suits her, but rarely lets her feelings for the Dark Knight interfere with her life of crime.

Catwoman has trained herself to peak physical condition and trained herself to be incredibly talented at gymnastics, making her lithe, fast, and nimble, in and on the battlefield. Selina’s real skills come in the art of burglary, where she relies on stealth and her silence to rob her targets blind. When forced to fight, Catwoman relies on fast strikes, aided by the claw attachments to her gloves and boots, inflicting powerful, numerous strikes that while not high damaging on their own, add up for a cumulative effect. For strong strikes, Selina relies on a bullwhip both for striking, binding, and reeling her enemy in towards her.
