The Many Lives of Catwoman Moments, Week Eight: The Widow, the Mayor, and the Urchin


In advance of my new book The Many Lives of Catwoman: The Felonious History of a Feline Fatale officially coming out on July 1 (though it’s available at some stores and online retailers now!), I’ve been posting key moments from Catwoman’s fascinating history on Tumblr. It’s a random assortment of panels and film stills from her incarnations across various media, and they go up twice a day to offer a peek inside all of the fun things that are covered in the book. Some moments are serious, some are silly, and they all showcase what a brilliant and enjoyable character Catwoman is.

Last week, the ten moments that we looked at included:

And finally, my favourite Catwoman moment of the week is Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle in Gotham. I’ll be honest with you all: I think that Gotham is a straight up terrible show. It was so bad that I had to stop watching it. While researching the book, I fast forwarded through every scene that Selina wasn’t in and frankly, I think that’s  the best way to watch the show. Bicondova’s Selina is the one enjoyable thing about the program. She’s clever, she’s funny, she’s a bad ass, and while she definitely lives outside the law, she’s the only character with a real moral code. Everyone else is willing to cross various lines and betray the values they hold dear, but Selina is steady. Her friends come first and she protects them, and that’s how she rolls. While Gotham is a relentlessly bleak program, Selina is a bright spot and Bicondova captures the spirit of Catwoman wonderfully each week.

You can check out all of the Catwoman moments here, and follow along for more Catwoman fun twice a day! You can order the book too, and dive into the entertaining and fascinating history of Catwoman. It’s the perfect book to enjoy during the upcoming holiday weekend!

    Hi Tim,
    Re: Catwoman in Batman: Arkham City (2011)
    Did Grey Delisle add or detract with her performance? I note that Catwoman had 2 alternate skins: one from The Animated Series and the other from Batman: The Long Halloween. Neither of those helped?
