Cheetah Character Guide

Character Profile

“I’m stronger, faster — and thirsty for Amazon blood.” –  Cheetah encounter with Wonder Woman

Real Name: Barbara Ann Minerva
Gender: Female
Species: Metahuman
Debut: Wonder Woman Vol.2 #7
Voice: Erica Lutrell

The Cheetah is a super-villain legacy of characters with feline characteristics who usually fight Wonder Woman. There have been several different people to use this alias. Priscilla Rich was the original during the Golden Age, and Deborah Domaine was the Silver Age version. Barbara Ann Minerva is the current contemporary version. The character has been involved with Villainy, Inc., the Injustice League and the Secret Society of Super-Villains.

Cheetah possesses enhanced strength, speed, durability, stamina, and agility all comparable to Wonder Woman, allowing her to fight the Amazon on an even playing field. Her claws are strong enough to cut and wound Wonder Woman, and Minerva possesses a genius level intellect.
