The character has been one of Batman's most enduring love interests, and is seen as possibly [[OneTruePairing the most natural one to him]]. Many modern writers have also interpreted her activities and costumed identity as a response to a history of abuse.

* BiTheWay: An arc during the Genevieve Valentine run in the New52 era revealed that Selina is bisexual. There had been much fanservicey LesYay innuendo during earlier eras of the comic, but this arc treated it much more seriously and implied that she herself had only recently realised it.

But when it comes to really reprehensible people like [[spoiler: Black Mask]], she will do so (although not without regret, as the spoiler-protected example continues to haunt her for many issues afterwards).
