Powers: Catwoman has no superhuman abilities but is an accomplished gymnast and martial artist. She is skilled in hand-to-hand combat and is an expert in the use of her whip. She is also a skilled thief, able to pick locks and crack safes with ease.

History: Selina Kyle was a young orphan who turned to a life of crime to survive on the streets of Gotham City. She became known as the Catwoman, using her agility and cunning to steal valuable treasures from the rich and powerful.

Catwoman crossed paths with Batman on numerous occasions, sometimes as an adversary and sometimes as an ally. Their complicated relationship was defined by their mutual attraction and their opposing views on crime and justice.

In the years that followed, Catwoman continued to operate as a thief and occasional vigilante, often teaming up with other heroes such as the Justice Society of America and the Birds of Prey.

During the Crisis on Infinite Earths, the multiverse was condensed into a single universe, and Catwoman's history was merged with that of her Earth-1 counterpart. However, her adventures on Earth-2 remain a significant part of her character's legacy.

Personality: Catwoman is a complex and multifaceted character, motivated by both a desire for material wealth and a sense of justice. She is fiercely independent and does not shy away from taking risks or breaking the law to achieve her goals. Despite her criminal tendencies, she has a strong sense of honor and will not harm innocent people or kill in cold blood.

Equipment: Catwoman is known for her iconic whip, which she uses as a weapon and a tool for scaling buildings. She also wears a skintight catsuit and often carries other tools such as lockpicks and smoke pellets.

Weaknesses: Catwoman's love for Batman often puts her in vulnerable positions, as she is willing to take risks to earn his trust or impress him. She is also vulnerable to physical harm, particularly when facing opponents with superior strength or weapons.

Summary: Catwoman, the Feline Felon, has been a prominent character in the Batman mythos for over 80 years. Her complex motivations and relationships with other characters have made her a fan favorite and a vital part of the DC Universe. While her criminal activities often put her at odds with Batman and other heroes, her commitment to justice and her willingness to put herself on the line to help others have made her a hero in her own right.

Re: Catwoman (Earth-2)

Earth-2 Catwoman never teamed with the JSA as a whole or Birds of Prey. She married Batman and had a daughter, the Huntress. Unlike the Post-Crisis version, surviving on the streets wasn't really a motive for the Earth-2 version.
