Having had a very difficult childhood, Selina Kyle learned various thievery skills and used them to become a slick burglar known as Catwoman. In her public life, she is a wealthy socialite living off the loot she has stolen. As Catwoman, Selina seeks thrills in stealing various artifacts and treasures and taking her ill-gotten spoils to her socialite life. She is a skilled gymnast and martial artist, and wields gloved claws as well as a whip. Catwoman is not directly against Batman as she sometimes allies with him in his crime fighting, but her thieving ways are what keep her from being a fully fledged crime fighter.
