    I think there’s room for a lot of looks, but I definitely agree that my favorite versions of Catwoman carry themselves with an attitude of classiness and glamorousness!

    Two thumbs up for that!

    Speaking for myself, I think Jones's Catwoman is a bit too glossy.

    Stitched up like she found some old patterns in the bargain basement. Purple, green, and modestly slit skirts.

    Sounds like a sort of cross between

    I'm noticing that with a few of the old character designs, Batman is one of the few family members who got to wear pants (or tights I suppose).
    Catwoman, Robin (Dick), Bat-Girl (Bette) = no pants. Lol.
    Thank goodness Alfred had pants on.

    Yeah, Michelle Pfeiffer sticched-up Cat-rags. She was a good actress but the costume was meh.

    In the early cases, the Cat would appear in some disguise--often as a high society woman in a gown--before she was revealed to be the Cat. She didn't really have a set costume and was really a master (or mistress) of disguise.

    However, to call Catwoman a member of the Batman family in her original incarnation is really stretching it--since she was usually a villain. The Batman family in the 1940s and the 1950s was Batman, Robin, Alfred and Commissioner Gordon--one man in stockings, two men in trousers and one boy in short pants.

    Kathy Kane appeared as Batwoman in 1956, two years after Catwoman had been retired from the comics. I think the reason Catwoman was got rid of (going back to crime in her final appearances after a period of being a crime-fighter alongside Batman) was because she was too hot for the Comics Code--and Batwoman was a safer bet. She didn't show any skin in her costume, other than around the face.

    But even Batwoman is not a full-time member of the family. The bulk of her appearances were between 1959 and 1964--and she never got her own feature. Bat-Girl had even less appearances (seven in total between 1961 and 1964). Bat-Mite and Ace, the Bat-Hound, would be the other family members prior to 1964 with any prominent credentials--one did show off his bare legs and the other ran around totally nude in every adventure he was in and never cared to put on a stitch of clothing, other than mask and collar.

    Other than that, I'm cool with the modern costumes.

    Also, Dan Brereton is the man!

    I have a soft spot for the blue and red suit from the 70's. That was Catwoman when I first met her.

    Didn't know Frank Robbins designed it. Cool. Knowing that now, It's pretty obvious.

Granted, the idea of a cape on ANY hero or villain is really stupid (see The Incredibles for reasons why!). To me, characters based on a bat or bird seems to make sense having a cape (wings) however I don't see why a cat would have a cape. Maybe I'm just thinking too much into it.
    You do realize that the Incredibles was making a joke right? I mean, they had characters with alleged superstrength getting pulled around by their capes, and capes that seemed as indestructible as adamantium with how they would just not pull off or tear off. So yeah...

    Would have been fun to have that version of Catwoman meet up with Harvey's Black Cat (Linda Turner).

    And before there was Batwoman, there was the Bat Lady from ARTISTS AND MODELS (1955), with Shirley MacLaine posing as the comic book character.
