Catman may have been even more badass before Simone.

Many won't know,but back in the day Doug Moench wrote a story in legends of the Dark Knight called "Heat",here Moench gave him a Black Pantheresque suit and Wolverineesque claws.He was shown to be a deadly fighter.

http://www.comicvine.com/batman-legends-of-the-dark-knight-/37-37393/

The arc lasted from #46-#49,i honestly think this was better than the pretty boy Gail has given us,i can buy whatever he did in this arc,it makes a lot more sense than those retarded fights against Bronze Tiger and Batman written by Simone.Ladies won't like it by the way.Not only was he unattractive but he also had a grudge against the opposite sex.

Thoughts?

Are you sure it's the same character? He doesn't appear to be credited. There is a character credited called Cat Killer though.

Yes,but not in that year.He appeared in the New Batman Adventures.

Simone had Barbara Gordon refer to him as Brad Pitt's younger hotter brother.

@entropy_aegis
Looks like the Cat Killer page should be deleted and Catman given credit then.

But it's non canon(due to it not being acknowledged and contradicted later ),so it'll prolly have to be added as an Elseworlds or something.

That's dumb.

@entropy_aegis: Why is that dumb? Until the Green Arrow run he was constantly portrayed as a capable fighter with quite a malevolent side.

So he can beat Batman with one kick in under 6 seconds? when other much more capable fighters failed to accomplish the same.

@entropy_aegis: Probably because they went about it wrong. Didnt Bronze Tiger one shot Batman before?

Only happened once and about 40 years ago,not to mention Catman has always had a PIS aura,he wen't from giving Batman good bouts to getting stomped by Catwoman.

@entropy_aegis:

Then he went back to having formidable confrontations a wide range of characters Batman included, what's your point?

@entropy_aegis: He beat Batman in under six seconds because Batman slipped/tripped on the item under his feet.

But regardless, he actually gave Wayne some good fights.

AHEM. Catman was beating the crap out of Batman in Secret Six and they fight to a stalemate. Although Catman does proclaim Batman the winner. A gentlemen and a scholar.

LOLWUT? Catman "Beating the crap" out of Batman when it's clear Batman was holding back and implied he could end it?

Yeah except I don't think too highly of Gail Simone's ability to write fights or handle power levels.I guess you think Catman>Captain Nazi and Weather Wizard?
