Supervillain Origins: Catwoman
Born in Gotham City, Selina’s early life was filled with tragedy. In her youth, her mother committed suicide, and her father drank himself to death. Living on the streets and surviving through petty crime, she eventually used her sharp wits and amazing natural ability as a gymnast to become the slickest cat burglar the police department had ever seen. With Batman’s arrival in Gotham, she quickly found herself smitten with the caped crusader and took on a costumed persona of her own. In turn, Batman returned her romantic feelings, but became conflicted with his role as a crime fighter, opting to let her escape on a regular basis.
