Not bad, Harleen. But how'd you like to have some real, real fun?
~ Selina Kyle, "Frenemies"

Selina Kyle (also known as Catwoman) is a recurring character in the second generation of the DC Super Hero Girls franchise. She is a student at Metropolis High School and the leader of Super Villain Girls.

Development and design[]

Catwoman is depicted as an African-American and is seemingly inspired by Eartha Kitt, who played the character in the third season of the 1960s Batman television series. According to Lauren Faust, each of the super villain girls is based on a deadly motivation in a similar vein of the seven deadly sins, with Catwoman's being greed[1]. Whereas her G1 counterpart was changed into a superhero, this incarnation is back to her villainous roots. She is also a different race than her G1 counterpart.

Appearance[]

Selina is an attractive, black teenager who sported a mostly slender figure, which forms into a rather thin waist and thick thighs. She has slanted, almond-shaped magenta eyes with long and thick eyelashes protruding from them, dark brown pixie cut-styled hair with purple streaks, and wears makeup which consists of thick mascara, pink blush, and maroon-purple lipstick on her plump lips.

As a civilian, Selina wears a set of diamond earrings with a matching diamond necklace around her neck, a white top under a mid-quarter-sleeved, black crop-top leather jacket with purple inner lining, silverish-blue bracelets on both her wrists, black denim-pants held by an oval-shaped violet belt, and heeled calf-length dark gray boots.

As Catwoman, her attire consists of a set of rather large, black and violet goggles over her eyes, which are worn on the front of her dark gray cowl with cat ears attached to it. Her cowl matches perfectly with her tight-fitting, high-collared bodysuit, in which she accessorizes with a cat-o-nine tails wrapped around her waist, as if it were an actual cat's tail. She also sported black, arm-length leather gloves with sharp claws, and matching-colored calf-high boots.

Personality[]

Selina is an intelligent and sassy individual, as she has a "cat-like" persona. She is also shown to be somewhat of a kleptomaniac, having a likeness to secretly steal things even if they aren't particularly valuable of some sort. She is also shown to be flirtatious, as she gives Barry a mischievous wink when ordering tea at Sweet Justice, although it's possible this was just a technique to distract the latter while she stole items from the cashier.

When posing as Catwoman, her intelligence shines through during her heists, as she is proven to be a crafty, sly, cunning and resourceful criminal. This is evidenced during Fight At The Museum where, despite having no powers, she was easily able to outsmart Supergirl every time the latter tries to catch her. During the episode itself, she shows off her mischievous side since she is seen laughing throughout the entire segment.

She is also shown to be disloyal at times, like when she betrayed the Super Hero Girls and Lex Luthor. However, she is shown to have a hidden regard for human life and the world, since she helped the Super Hero Girls stop Luthor from destroying the entire world with a meteor, although this is only because she prefers the world in one piece since it's where she can steal stuff.
