Selina Kyle answers reader questions.
First I'd like to say that you are awesome.
Second thing is a question concerning your more recent appearance in the
media (or at least the use of your image). As I am sure you are aware
Midway came out with a game for PS3 called MK vs. DC in which Mortal
Kombatants squared off against some of the best in the DC universe.
Congratulations on being selected as one of the fighters.
What I'd like to know is how you feel about your portrayal? Do you feel
Midway represented you better or worse than the Gotham Post? Also is
there any character among the playable options you feel you'd like to
take a (whip) crack at?
A long time fan
You clearly know how to approach a cat. I think that is pretty awesome
While I was
born a bit early to take up a keen interest in that sort of game, Tim
and Cassie are avid enthusiasts, so Iíve been able to take a look. I am,
of course, pleased to have my fighting abilities recognized. It is
no mean feat holding your own against Batman, and while I do admittedly
have other means to put him off his game, a naughty grin alone won't get
you far against the best martial artist in the world. So yes, it
is certainly "an honor to be nominated," as they say.
tell you that Tim and Cass do not feel Mortal Kombat compares well, on
the whole, to the games
Bruce gets them in Tokyo. I must say, having just seen this Final
Fantasy version of the Jokeresque evil clown Kefka...
...I am quite sure heíd
But you were asking about me. It appears that these Midway folks made the
supreme mistake of talking to the Post rather than those who know me,
because they committed the two great sins: they have me classified as
one who would kill my opponent, and anyone who knows the first thing
about Catwoman knows that I do not kill. They also have me pictured in
those hideous goggles, which are an insult to all things Cat. (Can you
believe they are actually based on the aviator goggles worn by SNOOPY
THE DOG? Oh yeah, thatís feline. Pfft!)
They did get the color right: the
awful zip up biker-chick get-up is at least purple. And I do appear to
be appropriately lacking in complexity. But when other enterprises as
diverse as Six Flags Amusement Parks...
and the Metropolitan Museum of Art...
manage to get my appearance
right, Iím afraid I cannot give Mortal Kombat anything more than one paw print.
But I thank
you, Oracle_Thunder for writing and being such a fan. You get five
we say in the real neighborhood,
