The Many Lives of Catwoman Moments, Week Five: Songs, Bells, and Sworn Enemies


With my new book The Many Lives of Catwoman: The Felonious History of a Feline Fatale officially out on July 1 and already hitting some stores and online retailers now, I’ve been posting fun and important moments from Catwoman’s history on Tumblr. The pictures are randomly assorted, comic book panels and film stills from her many appearances across various media over the decades. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are a bit of both, and they offer a look inside all of the fun incarnations of Catwoman that the book covers.

Last week, the moments we looked at included:

And finally, for my favourite moment of the week we turn to the 1940s again. In Detective Comics #122 from April 1947, written by Bill Finger with art by Bob Kane (supposedly) and Charles Paris, Batman got injured during an encounter with Catwoman. She later captured Robin, and her first question was about Batman’s health and whether he’d been badly hurt. Robin thought that Catwoman was harbouring a crush for the Caped Crusader, though she adamantly denied it and declared, “Of course not! We’re sworn enemies!” But her earlier concerns clearly showcased her true feelings. As much as Catwoman was an unrepentant villain who was wholly dedicated to clever, elaborate heists, she had a soft spot for Batman. She wanted to best him at every turn, she just didn’t want him to get hurt in the process.

You can check out all of the Catwoman moments here and follow along for more Catwoman fun! This week, since we’re so close to the book’s official release, we’re moving to two Catwoman moments a day! And you can order the book now too,And you can order the book now too, and dive into her fascinating history in depth!
