    Default VILLAINS! Your Thoughts On: CHEETAH!

    With the rebooting of the forums, it's time to start up Gail's old villain threads again!



    What is everyone's thoughts on the feline femme fatale? Is she being treated right in the New 52, or do you want to see something else done with her?

    List of good WW villians

    > Giganta
    > Clea
    > Strife
    > Cheetah (Pre-COIE)

    EDIT: Woops should have read full title.

    Anyway, I like the original Cheetah. She was crazy.

    I like the Cheetah and think she is a great villain for both Wonder Woman and the world at large. However I don't like her new origin that much. I also don't like the way she became the Cheetah either. But I do think she is awesome and want to see more of her. I feel like most writers just don't know how to portray her well and I think it really hurts the character.
    We are the Dora Milaje. We are the daughters of the 18 tribes of Wakanda. We are the teeth of the Panther God. Out of 10,000 years of sweat and bloodshed and battle are we born. We are the women of this ancient land. Deadliest of the species. And our time has come!

    I love every incarnation of the Cheetah but Priscilla Rich is my favorite of them all(especially the version from Alex Ross' Justice).

    I think that she should be a mixture of Joker and Lex Luther, with Bizarro's power. Like Diana is a mixture so to speak of Clark and Bruce. She should have Lex's smarts and wicked cunning, but she should be downright creepy and be seen as insane, though she has a method to her madness like The Joker. She should also have the power to back those things up. Lex should find her attractive and somebody that could stand at his side...somewhat. And the Joker should find her terrifying, and knows to stay out of her way.

    I also like the Alex Ross design for her. Maybe tweeked somewhat. That was downright creepy for her to just skin her cats like that.

    I have! It was in one of those DC Limited Collector's Edition over-sized reprints from the 1970s, along with the origins of Catwoman, Mxyzptlk and the Mirror Master! It was great! And probably my first exposure to Golden Age Wonder Woman.

    Choose Cheetah!

    What amazes me is that most of WW enemies had psychological aspects to them (Marston's field) that predate Batman's.

    Her Golden Age rogues gallery has no equal really.

    Same here. It's a great classic story.

    I think the current Cheetah (Barbara Minerva) could make psychic contact with an adventuress/fake psychic/con man type from the 1940s, and it's Priscilla Rich, known as the Cheetah of her time. She matches wits with Slam Bradley and Zatara and, I dunno, Congo Bill or other heroic non-super-hero types. (Have they ALL been retconned into the 2000s?) But she provides Barbara Minerva with some power of some kind, and Wonder Woman has to go back to the 1940s to fight Priscilla Rich and her Zebra Girl Gang before she comes back to the present to whip Barbara Minerva Cheetah and her little gang, Villainy, Inc.

    Well, she's kind of already back as a package deal with Babs and Domaine
    But you might get your wish if we get multiple Earth One novels from Morrison. I fully expect him to lean more towards Priscilla than the other versions if he ends up using a Cheetah.
