    ... Because that's how it was in the New 52. It's not as if it's unprecedented.

    Anyway, yeah. This topic is about Cheetah Reading Recommendations.

    Sorry for getting off topic Nyssane!

    I never read them as a kid, but I wonder if Cheetah/Priscilla had any good showings in the Super Friends comics? Since she was an intricate part of that group?

    ::heads to Google::

    (I remember being bummed that she didn't appear in the Super Powers Galactic Guardians cartoon.)

    Rebirth Barbara doesn't seem like the type to have had fake identities in the past, but we'll see what happens in her future chararization. Like Cale, it's going to take a great creative idea to turn her into a full-tilt boogie villain after being a sympathetic character most recently.

    I can see some overlap between the Perez Barbara Minerva and Marston/Bronze Age Priscilla Rich. Some superficial, one comes from English royalty of sorts and the other's a monied American socialite. And both have devious and cunning natures. Some more serious, one is often trapped in a curse by Urzkartaga and the other is challenged by mental health issues. (Although there's an argument for what happens to one's mental health when becoming the bride of Urzie or forced back into the role of Cheetah by a ruthless businessvillainess.)

    It'll be interesting to see where they take Barbara and her motives now. One avenue could be that now that Urzie is defeated she can come into her own as Cheetah and what that means for her human self and Cheetah self - if the two both exist at this point. Right now she kind of stands alone as a Wonder foe, having antagonistic feelings towards both Diana and Veronica for different reasons, as well as her own self-loathing. That status of her feelings has some aspects or echoes of Priscilla Rich I guess.

    It's interesting that Diana's dealing with multiple characters that have abandonment issues with her - Cheetah, Silver Swan, and to some degree Jason in some issues. I wonder if any writer will pick up that affect she has on people in a future story. Not that I'm blaming her for those characters's feelings and actions, but it's interesting that Diana is such a light and special personality to people when she meets them, that some of them feel such longing for her friendship and participation in their lives that they feel extra empty without her presence in their lives. It's like she augments a person's self-confidence and "specialness" when she's around and they can't quite deal with reality when she's called off for other adventures.

    The downside of being an incredible person and friend, perhaps, and the sometimes ugliness that happens when it's denied someone or that relationship changes for some people.

    Definitely some Marstonian psychology to consider in that state of affairs.

    :: puts on thinking cap to ponder that idea some more ::

    (Also, this probably a better, on topic response to a Barbara Minerva or general Cheetah Appreciation thread.)
    Yeah I'll reply to you there.

    Did you mean me? Bwaahahaha, yes, I want all of them rolled into one unbeatable Cheetah! (Rolls his hands together)

    And like Nyssane said, it was done before.

    But mostly, I want to read about Cheetah!

    I remember one Cheetah that had a wrist shooter that fired cat nails at Wonder Woman. I think it was Priscilla...

    I liked the idea that the Cheetah had used the aliases of Priscilla and Debbie in the past, I just wish they had kept her identity as Sebastian Ballestros intact. Why not? He could have been a shadowy agent operating from Argentina whom no one knew. It would have been a nice nod to the occasional cross-dressing villain Diana had in her Golden Age.
