Catwoman is a character created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger. A master criminal and gentlewoman thief, her love for Batman redeemed her. Thus, she is now an antiheroic ally of Batman. Even though she often commits criminal acts, her love for Batman makes her a valuable ally in Batman's fight against the forces of evil, and will often help Batman defeat the more monstrous villains he faces off against. Catwoman has gloves with claws on them, she is an expert martial artist, and she uses a whip as a weapon.
