Catwoman - 40 - Like Cat |LINK|

Batman co-creator Bob Kane was a great movie fan and his love for film provided the impetus for several Batman characters, among them, Catwoman. Kane's inspiration for Catwoman was drawn from multiple sources to include actresses Jean Harlow, Hedy Lamarr, and his cousin, Ruth Steele.[10][11][12] Kane and Finger wanted to give their comic book sex appeal, as well as a character who could appeal to female readers; they thus created a "friendly foe who committed crimes but was also a romantic interest in Batman's rather sterile life."[13] Catwoman was meant to be a love interest and to engage Batman in a chess game, with him trying to reform her. At the same time, this character was meant to be different from other Batman villains like the Joker in that she was never a killer or evil.

Catwoman - 40 - Like Cat

During the Silver Age, Catwoman, like most Batman villains, used a variety of themed weapons, vehicles, and equipment, such as a custom cat-themed car called the "Cat-illac". This usage also appeared in the 1960s Batman television series. In her Post-Crisis appearances, Catwoman's favored weapon is a whip. She wields both a standard bullwhip and a cat o' nine tails with expert proficiency. She uses the whip because it is a weapon that the user must be trained to use, and therefore it can not be taken from her and used against her in a confrontation. She can also be seen using a pistol against people if her whip is taken from her. Catwoman uses caltrops as an anti-personnel weapon and bolas to entangle opponents at a distance.

In Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning's Batman: Two Faces, Selina Kyle is a madame in 19th century Gotham, who defends streetwalkers in a mask, bustier, and fishnets and occasionally works with amateur detective Bruce Wayne. The Joker attacks and paralyzes her, much like he does to Barbara Gordon in Batman: The Killing Joke.

Although the movie's faults are many, the crucial one is that we never get any sense of what it feels like to turn into a catwoman. The strength of "Spider-Man 2" is in the ambivalence that Peter Parker has about being part nerdy student, part superhero. In "Catwoman," where are the scenes where a woman comes to grip with the fact that her entire nature and even her species seems to have changed?

Berry plays Patience Phillips, a designer for an ad agency, who dies and is reborn after Midnight, a cat with ties to ancient Egypt, breathes new life into her. She becomes Catwoman, but what is a catwoman? She can leap like a cat, strut around on top of her furniture, survive great falls and hiss. Berry looks great doing these things, and spends a lot of time on all fours, inspiring our almost unseemly gratitude for her cleavage.

Catwoman dresses like a dominatrix, with the high heels and the leather skirt, brassiere, mask and whip. But why? Because the costume sketches looked great, is my opinion. The film gives her a plot that could have been phoned in from the 1960s: She works for a corporation that's introducing a new beauty product that gives women eternal youth, unless they stop taking it, in which case they look like burn victims. When Patience stumbles over this unfortunate side effect, she is attacked by security guards, flushed out of a waste pipe and is dead when Midnight finds her.

The villains are Laurel and Georges Hedare (Sharon Stone and Lambert Wilson). He runs the cosmetics company and fires his wife as its model when she turns 40. She is not to be trifled with, especially not in a movie where the big fight scene is a real catfight, so to speak, between the two women. Stone's character is laughably one-dimensional, but then that's a good fit for this movie, in which none of the characters suggest any human dimensions and seem to be posing more than relating. Take Georges, for example, whose obnoxious mannerisms are so grotesque he's like the "Saturday Night Live" version of Vincent Price.

The score by Klaus Badelt is particularly annoying; it faithfully mirrors every action, with what occasionally sounds like a karoke rhythm section. The director, whose name is Pitof, was probably issued with two names at birth and would be wise to use the other one on his next project.

2. Aquarium: Hey, moms-to-be, get a little creative this year and head to the office as an aquarium. The costume is easy to make, so you can get back to the important things, like, you know, growing a tiny human. (via Brit + Co)

I look a little like Anne Hathaway. I used to look a lot like Anne Hathaway. Then she lost 20 pounds to play Fantine in Les Misérables and I learned to really cook, and the twinhood stopped, for the most part. But if you catch the girl with some thick bangs and a dress (the only place to hide my sprinter-thighs), I can still feed the hope.

bindery defects like minor to moderate corner tears, white along the edge of the spine, covers that are offset from the pages (common on cardstock covers) - bindery defects may not affect the grade much if at all

printing defects like a slight color rubs on the back covers, small wrinkles in the paper that were present on the paper rolls prior to the books being printed, paper that is "wavy" from the printing process

During Heart of Hush, Catwoman was attacked by Hush. He surprised her by showing her his face, which he had surgically altered to look like Bruce Wayne's. He then ripped out her heart, leaving her on life support and possibly murdering her. Batman got her heart back, and Zatanna gave her a cream that would help her heal faster. Catwoman took revenge by stealing all of Hush's money, leaving him a video telling him that he was now penniless, and that she had survived, he having thought she was deceased.

Selina then offered the idea that all three of them stay together to better survive in the new Gotham City. Before accepting Selina's idea, Ivy secretly paid a visit to Zatanna through her plants, to find out if she had anything to do with Selina's weakness. Zatanna suggested that the weakness was likely psychological in nature. But before Ivy and Selina can discuss the matter any further, Boneblaster returns and tries to once more make a name for himself by attacking Ivy, Harley and Selina. While Ivy and Harley distract him, Selina ends Boneblaster's threat by shorting out his gauntlets with a live electrical conduit, deducing that the villain had yet to get used to the technology, and had failed to properly insulate his gloves. As a result of the fight, Eddie Nigma's apartment is wrecked.

Selina then obtains an abandoned animal shelter as their new home from a man calling himself The Broker. Ivy and Harley move in, but before Ivy makes a final acceptance of Selina's offer, she surprises Selina and drugs her with truth serum-like spores. While Selina falls into a stupor, Ivy says that she wants total honesty between all of them if they are to trust one another. She then asks Selina to reveal the identity of the original Batman. Selina, using a mental discipline taught to her by Talia al Ghul, avoids the interrogation and gives Ivy and Harley a fabricated story about there being multiple Batmen over the years, and that she's had a personal relationship with more than one of them.

During the Road Home story arc, Catwoman was seen with her partners Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn, keeping an eye on Vicki Vale. Selina was asked by Oracle (Barbara Gordon) to follow Vicki and destroy the evidence that she has on members of the Bat-family. When Selina saw a passed artifact that she stole a long time back, it gave her a good feeling to remember what it was like to be chased by Batman. This flashback was interrupted when Harley Quinn broke into the area, She wanted to get her Hyenas back because they stole them from her. Selina's and Ivy's cover was blown and Vicki Vale bolted out of the room very quickly. Selina lost the trail, however got Vicki's phone number. She planted a fake call to lead her out of her apartment. Selina broke into Vicki's apartment and started to take pictures of the Bat-wall; which had the information Insider (Bruce Wayne) and Oracle needed. When Insider arrived at the meeting location, Bruce talked about the "two-beating hearts" from the "Heart of Hush" story line. Selina fell into a trance and said "Bruce", however Insider was already gone. In the end, Bruce stated that Selina was qualified to help him continue his war on crime in the near future.

The most well-known portrayal of Catwoman was that of Michelle Pfeiffer in 1992's Batman Returns. A timid secretary who undergoes a traumatic experience, she emerges as a sexy, self confident but psychotic criminal in a patchwork latex catsuit seeking revenge against her boss, Max Shreck. Pfeiffer's version of Catwoman brings a more feline-like approach to this character, which is rather different from some of the other live-action portrayals. "Meow."

Batman and Catwoman are back to the museum, and they discover that Ventriloquist, deceived Catwoman (she served only as bait - for Ventriloquist steals animal camouflage). But Batman suspects that Catwoman is not telling the whole truth. Catwoman applies a kick in Batman and escapes the museum to go after Ventriloquist. Catwoman goes to an old abandoned factory (Ventriloquist is trying to sell the animals camouflaged). Catwoman is detected and caught. Ventriloquist sends one of his henchmen get rid of Catwoman. However Batman appears and saves Catwoman. Batman deals with the thugs and Catwoman destroys Scarface. Selina wants to kill Ventriloquist, but Batman stopped her. Catwoman wanted to go back to stealing and also wanted to return to the Catwoman. Catwoman said he could not change and that it should return what it was. Catwoman manages to escape from Batman, but Batman is sad, because he liked the Catwoman did not return to life of thieves and against justice.

Catwoman appears in one of the many DC Nation shorts on Cartoon Network, Batman of Shanghai. This short takes place in a place one would assume to be ancient China. Catwoman is drastically re-imagined like every other character in this short. She wears traditional Chinese clothes and has red, brownish hair and she has a prehensile tail. She is voiced by Stephanie Sheh. 041b061a72
