Big news! The Return of Purple Suit Catwoman!

Though the costume was only around for a very short time--less than six years, all told--the 90's era purple suited version of Catwoman had a decent following in her heyday, and is still remembered fondly. Well, she's on her way back, in some capacity, in DC's Convergence event. The news broke less than two hours ago:

CATWOMAN

(Writer: Justin Gray; Artist: Ron Randall, with color by Gabe Eltaeb)
A year under the dome can change anyone, even Catwoman. She’s set aside her life of crime to become the protector of Suicide Slum, but when the dome falls she will face her greatest challenge—Kingdom Come Batman.

Will she be sticking around? Or perhaps merged with the current continuity's version? Killed off forever? We'll see. I'm thrilled to both see her again (because, honestly, thigh high boots and opera gloves are some of my favorite things) and to see that this take on Selina retains some of the altruistic characteristics that make Catwoman my favorite female comics character. It's actually quite nice to know that people can still associate this version of the character with compassion, given that it's all over her nineties series in small ways that tend to be forgotten.

We'll see how it goes! Fingers crossed!
