Origin

Orphaned as a girl by a suicidal mother and an alcoholic father, Selina Kyle spent time in a state home for girls before escaping an abusive headmistress to live on the streets of Gotham City.


Vowing never to go hungry or want again, Kyle used her natural acrobatic skills and keen wits to become the most accomplished thief Gotham has ever known, a cat who walks through walls and the hands of both Gotham City Police Department and its Dark Knight, as the Catwoman.
