New Character: Catwoman

It's Catwoman in the upcoming NetherRealm fighting game. I like the whip.

I prefer (pre-fur?) her MK vs. DC look, but she still looks fun to play as. Quite excited.

A little too much Freddy Krueger-style claw action and not enough feline agile fighting-style she's known for. Highly approve of getting the Arkham City voice actor on board though.

Why is she wearing so much metal? She's a thief.

knew she'll be added...another Batman related character joins the fray... i hope this doesnt become another Batman featuring other dc characters game.

Harley, Grundy, Catwoman, Nightwing, Batman....all good characters but do we really need all the Bat family characters?

Grundy isn't really a Batman character. He's been in some prolific bat stories, but that's not where he got his start or where he appears most often.

@Hunter5024: He may have been introduced as a Green Lantern villain (which happened in Gotham City)and he is somewhat of a shared villain, but he acts mostly in Gotham against Batman for sure.

Let's be real about it: The Joker will be a character, but yeah I agree.

Well currently he's in a universe where Batman doesn't even exist, and he's had plenty of encounters with The Justice Society, The Justice League, Green Lantern, and Batman. More of a general DC villain than a Batman one for sure.

People will start complaining that Martian ManHunter isn't in the game.We'll have a megaman/MVC3 crisis all over again.

I'm actually surprised they managed to restraint themselves and not show any cleavage. Classy of them.

I wouldn't doubt it, he's already shown to be a background character in the game where he appears in one of the computer monitors in the Batcave stage(?)

He's not in the Justice League at the moment because they felt like it made Superman redundant, and because they wanted to put Cyborg on there for the sake of diversity I would assume. So I doubt DC cares whether or not he's in this game, so lets hope we got some Martian lovers over at Netherrealm.

Great costume!

Arkham City Catwoman was the perfect design, too bad she's not here, I feel like playing some Arkham City Catwoman missions now, so damn good.

@Hunter5024: He's pretty awesome, i love his backstory, i love his character, and his powers should be a fun thing to implement in game, so yeah, i hope somebody at Netherrealm is a fan of him.

To be fair, Batman did exist, he just isn't alive anymore lol

Regardless of where he is and what he's done, more of the general public will see him as a Batman villain because he's been on all the Batman cartoons, and he was in Arkham City, he has a lot of notoriety in Batman and people will associate him with that.

Wait, so the tail comes off and acts as a whip? Neat!
