Catwoman is the supervillain alias of the fictional character Selina Kyle, and occasionally of other female characters. She first appeared as "the Cat" in DC Comics Batman #1 in 1940.

She is a burglar in Gotham city, and her preferred weapon is a bullwhip. She wears a tight black suit and is often outfitted with spy gear.

Catwoman "is one of the Dark Knight's most enduring enemies" part of his rogues gallery. At times, though, she becomes an anti-hero rather than a villain, "doing the wrong things for the right reasons." She is also Batman's most enduring love interest.

In addition to comics, Catwoman has appeared in films, live-action series, animated series, video games, and merchandise.

Rarely, she is accompanied by a sidekick known as Catgirl. She also has a daughter named Helene, of whom Batman may be the father.
