Popular Catwoman Halloween Costumes

Updated on December 12, 2017

The Latest Catwoman Gear for Selina Kyle Fans

Catwoman was first known as "The Cat" when she initially appeared in Batman #1 in 1940. Labeled as both villainess and anti-hero, the part-time jewel thief has an enduring love-hate relationship with Batman.

The list of actresses to portray Catwoman in TV and films is impressive and includes the likes of Julie Newmar, Lee Meriwether, Eartha Kitt, Michelle Pfeiffer, Halle Berry and most recently Anne Hathaway.

The Dark Knight Rises feature film brought the Catwoman character back into prominence, with Ann Hathaway bringing a new level of athleticism to the role.

Some of the many awards garnered by Catwoman through the years include ranking #11 on IGN's "Top 100 Comic Book Villains of All Time" list, and #20 on their "Top 100 Comic Book Heroes of All Time" list.

Wizard magazine ranks the character #51 on their "100 Greatest Villains of All Time" list, and Comics Buyer's Guide ranks her as # 23 on their "100 Sexiest Women in Comics" list.

Catwoman's Role as Batman's Love Interest

The romantic entanglements between Batman and Catwoman go back to the beginnings of their relationship.

Although Batman has been known to have a few romantic interests in the past, including making a move on Lois Lane while Superman is pursuing Wonder Woman, not much is known about any of Selina Kyle's love interests other than the feelings she has for Bruce Wayne.

One of the reasons for Batman flip-flopping on his intentions towards Catwoman is her reputation as a jewel thief and petty criminal. In Catwoman's favor is her mantra of no killing, and the fact that most of her thievery is done against mobsters and other criminals.

In fact, Catwoman has teamed up with Batman several times over the years, most recently in The Dark Knight Rises, when she teams up with the Caped Crusader to defeat Bane, and save Gotham City from being destroyed by a nuclear bomb.

Although Batman may occasionally suffer from a wandering eye, it seems pretty obvious that Selina Kyle remains at the top of the list of Batman's love interests.
