    I think Catwoman is one of Batman's most important character, and in my opinion, his one true love. And I digged inside the Bat-World forum and didn't found any thread dedicated to her, so I hope this thread has motion, and... let's discuss!

    I see this is a very popular thread.

    Not that Catwoman isn't important. She is. And incredibly large-chested in that first picture.

    She's a strange character for sure.
    Obviously the best way to play her is as Batman's only real love interest since she has the most similar motivations. The conflict with how she both arouses him and also demands his crime-fighting attention is pretty interesting. Creates a conflicted motivation for the Batman character.

    But I haven't read many comics where its handled that way especially well, usually because either the comic code meant they couldn't play it that way, or the writer just doesn't get the character. I think she worked really well in LongHalloween/DarkVictory, Loeb/Sale seemed to 'get' how to play her. Without Batman around, I don't think her character works at all, since she's very much the opposite yet equal character for him.

    The immediately temptation is to turn her to good, but I honestly think that destroys all the potential tension in the character. Neither should she be a straight villain, but her motives should be her own.

    The Michelle Pfieffer Catwoman was played excellently, same sexual tension but also a wierd 'is she good or bad?' dynamic. Plus there's that whole added element of the sheltered secretary turns liberated woman. Liberated woman turns liberated woman isn't particularly interesting (Batman Year One, or the BTAS catwoman).

    That top image frankly annoys me. I find Catwoman sexy without having to see more skin.

    I think Selina works well in every comic book, specially if she appears alongside Batman, it can represent many things

    1.Sexual tension
    2.Lust
    3.Love
    4.Hate

    Their relationship is a river full of feelings, we are sure he loves her, but we don't know completely if he trusts her. She can pull it off in every media, comics, tv., movies,

    It looks like they used Audrey Hepburn as reference.
    Those breasts are bigger though.

    I think Adam Hughes (cover artist) likes to do voluptous women in every cover he does (even if it's a comic book 4 kids)
