You are Catwoman

You have had a tough childhood,
you know how to be a thief and exploit others
but you stand up for society's cast-offs.

This is funny, because I have always been a fan of Catwoman. Not a fan of any of the Catwomen that have ever been on screen, not the campy '60s series, not Michelle Pfieffer, and definitely not Halle Berry (that movie was just atrocious). She's an archetype that represents independence and the grey area between good and evil. LIke life, she is unpredictable, and has her own motives, sometimes in self-interest, and sometimes for the good. But you never know and that's why she keeps you on your toes.

I used to read and collect the Catwoman comic book, but I haven't had the money to lately (and plus I thought the that some of the male comic book writers recently put on her title ascribed motivations and thoughts to her that were ludicrous, because NO self-respecting woman would think that way, especially not Catwoman). I do think alot of the female superhero comic book characters get a short shrift and often come out not as well portrayed as the male superheroes (why does Wonder Woman currently have no love interest when every other male superhero does) because of the general lack of women in comics. I'm not saying that it's the fault of male writers, or saying that they are deliberately being sexist, or that there's a conspiracy against women; I think it's just a lack of understanding of how women think.

It's a shame because she truly is a great character.
