    Is she a villan or a hero? Everytime I watch Batman she is always potrayed as a semi-villan person twoards Batman. Can someone help me get this cleared up?

    I guess "anti-hero" or rogue (not in the sense of X-Men, but in general) could describe her character better than either of the definitive groups, at least in my opinion.

    Like, she's by no means straight & narrow because she's done some pretty nefarious shit (and I believe was initially booked as a villain), but at the same time, I wouldn't really classify her as being primarily villainous or even on that side of the fence. She just plays by her own rules (because she can), and does it all the more justice by way of black leather. Plus, different fiction has & will continue depicting her differently, so that alone speaks volumes to the whole "her own rules" type of deal.

    She is a thief. That would make her bad but she doesn't want to take over the city so she isn't a villian.

    Well as far as the Airachnid comparison goes, I dunno about that. From what we've seen, Airachnid's pretty much as bad as they come. Catwoman on the other hand tends to just be a bad girl with (often) good intentions, and one that ends up leaning to the heros side in the end, even if her methods aren't what the Justice League would normally condone.

    No, this is for anything that isn't related to the other forums in Off Topic section. Catwoman is a comic character, this belongs in the Comic Books sub-forum.

    Technically this is a general discussion section to talk about things that don't have their own section. Comics has it's own section.

    Hhahaahah, good eye. I was gonna say something like "They're both sexy on their own side of the bed", but then I couldn't think of a follow up so I just got rid of it.

    Also, disregard what you think you saw.

    I haven't read the comics, but I've always thought of her as either an anti-hero or an anti-villain.

    I'm currently reading the Catwoman Vol. 1 TPB by Ed Brubaker and Darwyn Cooke. Good read.

    So the way they imply it in that storyline is that she represents the gray area as opposed to Batman who is all about black and white.

    She's an anti-hero.


    She's steals.......but works with Batman.

    She is a theif.........but fights for good.

    My brother and I just call her "Robin Hood if he was a girl,was in the Batman comics,loved cats,and didn't have arrows."

    Yeah, the joker tried to trick Batman into a boner too, but ended up getting caught in his own boner instead.
