* BiTheWay: An arc during the Genevieve Valentine run in the ComicBook/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 realized it. As of Rebirth, she is engaged to Batman.


Catwoman is a fictional character associated with Creator/DCComics' ''{{Franchise/Batman}}'' franchise. Historically a supervillain, the character first appeared as '''The Cat''' in ''Batman'' #1 (Spring, 1940), which means she shares her status as the second-oldest of Batman's long-term Rogue's Gallery with ComicBook/TheJoker, who was introduced that same issue. The code name Cat-Woman (sic) and the first of her cat-suits were introduced in issue #2. Her civilian identity of Selina Kyle wasn't introduced until Batman #62 (December 1950).

Added DiffLines:

* SadClown: Her overtly snarky personality is a very obvious defense mechanism to hide the fact Selina’s a deeply traumatized and broken woman, who’s so desperate to survive in a city like Gotham and have meaning in a life that was defined by tragedy.

* ContinuitySnarl: No one is quite sure what Catwoman's backstory really is. Is she an orphan turned thief, an amnesiac air stewardess, a prostitute, a socialite, a product of an abusive marriage, the daughter of Carmine Falcone, or some combination thereof?

Added DiffLines:

* NewerThanTheyThink: She’s only known Batman’s secret identity in the main universe since about 2002. Previously, he knew hers only. They’ve only also really become an OfficialCouple since then as before it was mostly just flirting.

Added DiffLines:

* ParentalSubstitute: In major continuities, Dick Grayson sees Catwoman as a mother figure, which is why he's a ShipperOnDeck for her and Batman. This is, naturally, disregarding media with love affairs between them.
