    Honestly have connection with the organized crime isn't synonym to be member of a mafia family, on the contrary the mafia business are opposite to a thief's business.

    The whole Mafia Family thing was never really used out side of the Genevieve Valentine run, and in that run Selina wasn't even really Catwoman.
    So it is imo really pretty pointless.

    And like I said if they really want to do Mafia Family stories, Huntress is the character created for that.

    How did Selina sell stolen goods? She had to have some method of disposing of stolen goods. I suppose if someone gives you a contract to steal something that's an inherent method, but the rest of the time?

    In the Batman's stories the focus was how Batman would foil the Catwoman's robbery, not how Catwoman would have sold the stolen goods, but we can assume it is something that would be happened out of panel, like it happens often with other fictional thief; see the following answer for more details. Anyway there were stories were it was stated that Catwoman worked for someone, like it happened in the Telltale games or in "No man's land", where she was hired by Batman himself to do something (I don't remember what) in the Lex Luthor house.

    Presumably the same way that Simon Templar, Thomas Crown, Carmen Sandiego, both Arsene Lupins and Oceans‘ 11 move their stolen loot, The Association of Gentleman Fences.

    She has a fence. In New 52, her name was Lola, a middle-aged woman, and after she was killed by a mob who found them out, the new one is Gwendolyn Altamont. She's still alive and attended Selina's Bachelorette's Party in Batman Prelude to the Wedding Red Hood issue.

    I grew up in a backwards conservative rural area, where racism, sexism, homophobia etc was taken for granted. I credit books, and comic books, for showing me a more diverse world, with better values.
    i have so many thoughts about your post that i cant even put into words. you credit comic books for your values and i credit you for choosing to have better values than what your community might have taught.

    Kinda the point of literature, don't you think? Characters embody human values and ideals. Things we aspire for. If Samwise Gamgee didn't exist, I would be a different person. He started my love of sidekicks and showed how strength of heart can prevail over physical strength. His speech to Frodo and also when he rejected the One Ring still sticks with me today.

    There's a difference between a role model and an inspiration.

    Honestly, I often thought she would find ways to donate them.

    I don't think that will never happen: for what Harley Quinn's is loved by her fans because they see in her the bad girl who does everything she wants, without caring of the consequences of her actions.

    I absolutely agree. But I think it's so very forgettable that it's quite easy to discard. Indeed, I'd venture most don't even know it ever existed.

    Absolutely. Her crimes have almost always been solo gigs (especially in the old days). The only connections she needs are a good fence and maybe a money launderer, and those can theoretically be independent themselves.

    I often wonder if Kelly should ever be a cannon Robin. I mean with Selina doesn't she generally just donate the money?

    I thought Kelly was going to become the new actual Robin, after Damian died, and she came to question Bruce what happened to him. (She was tutoring him)

    Controversial opinion: I miss when Selina was half-Cuban on her mother’s side.
