Catwoman's 75th anniversary


Catwoman made her debuted on 22 May 1940, in Batman #1. Created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger in 1940, cat burglar Selina Kyle was inspired by Hedy Lamarr, as well as Jean Harlow and Finger's cousin Ruth Steele. Selina's relationship with Batman has often been both adversarial and romantic, their paths crossing on the Gotham City rooftops at night.

Catwoman remained an important figure in the Batman universe until 1954, when a moral crackdown on comic books led to her temporary end; she was replaced by Batwoman in 1956.  The Feline Fatale made her return in early 1966, first with a mention in the Zelda The Great episode of the 1966 Batman series, then followed by a 16-17 March 1966 appearance on that show. Portrayed by Julie Newmar, the character became a sensation, and would reappear in the comics that fall—in a Lois Lane issue, dated November.

Since then, Catwoman has been an important player, and a most fascinating one at that!!!
