Berry is Catwoman in her latest movie incarnation
In 2004, Catwoman, a movie starring Halle Berry, was released. This
film's Catwoman bore little resemblance to the comic book version.
Berry portrayed Patience Phillips, a woman who eventually became
Catwoman after a near-death experience. Patience gained the powers from
the Egyptian cat goddess Bastet through a gathering of cats led by an
Egyptian Mau. The movie alludes to other women in the past who have
been granted such cat-like abilities, particularly in a scene in which
Phillips finds herself amongst a series of images of prior catwomen,
including Pfeiffer's Batman Returns version of Selina Kyle. The film's
story has nothing to do with Batman or Gotham City.
Selina is a gifted and accomplished athlete, with heightened acrobatic
prowess. She was trained by the Armless Master in martial arts and by
Wildcat in boxing and street-fighting. She is a clever and resourceful
fighter, known for precise, agile attacks and speedy getaways. Her
formidable hand to hand combat skills are augmented by her cat-like
speed, reflexes, balance, and flexibility. Fittingly, Catwoman
is a master thief possessed of unsurpassed stealth and cunning.
the Silver Age, Catwoman, like most Batman villains, used a variety of
themed weapons, vehicles, and equipment, such as a custom cat-themed
car called the "cat-illac". In her post-Crisis used to appearances,
Catwoman's favored weapon is a whip. She wields both a standard
bullwhip and the cat-o-nine-tails with expert proficiency. In addition,
Catwoman has been shown to have various items to restrain her victims,
such as a set of plastic ties for binding hands and feet, and a roll of
duct tapegag her targets, like she did with Angle Man, Film Freak,
Zatanna, and various others during her robberies over the years.
