Is Catwoman a heroine these days or has she gone back to being a villainess? I've heard that she reformed but then heard she's joined forces with Poison Ivy and Harley Quin, both supervillains. So has she gone back to super villainy or is she spying on Harley and Ivy for Batman or something?
Catwoman, hero or villain?
They all together are anti heroic with ivy as the most ruthless one in the gang. but no cat woman is actually more of a anti heroin and will be teaming up with batman soon as a matter of fact so she is a decent good little kitty right now. Its poison ivy that might get a little mysterious there and there and then Harley is just trying to fade away from joker making her almost an every day blond so yep.
to the gotham public, she's still a villian and was just recently blamed along with harley for some "wrongdoing", thanks to ivy. but batman knows that deep down inside she isn't evil or bad or whatever you want to call it. she's walking the neutral line.
Wow there's a lot of different answers to this one. Based on the latest things I've read with her in it I would say that she is a reformed villain still figuring out how to be a hero. Overall she is on the good side of things now, but still has some darker tendencies, like stealing.
I think turning catwoman to the good side is strongly related to growth of feminism
as much as number of indipendent successful women increased this idea spread between comic creators wich more femenist society do not accept female charecter as villians or follower sidekicks of male heros like catgirl so they start to create strong independent female heros or at least reforming the strong female villains to good side .
I liked Anne Hathaway's interpretation of Selina Kyle/Catwoman in Christoper Nolan's bold "The Dark Knight Rises" .
Though the Nolan film really highlighted the ominousness of the brutish maniac Bane, Hathaway's Catwoman offered a nice complement and guilty pleasure, and her interpretation of Selina Kyle/Catwoman as a female rendition of an Artful Dodger-esque street-crawler nicely highlighted this DC feline's urban consciousness.
If Bruce can win Selina's heart, then Catwoman is as redeemable at least as Talia al Ghul (with whom Bruce fathered Damian Wayne who went on to become a new incarnation of Robin).
In my humble opinion, Selina/Catwoman is very extreme and volatile but shares Batman's attitude towards vigilance.
I think "Batman: Year One" (Frank Miller) offers a nice portrait of Catwoman too.
