I wonder what it is about Catwoman that gets her reimagined so much?  If we include other media she's also had two movie origins and at least one animated origin (Brave & Bold; I don't recall if TAS delved into her origins).... 
 
Watching it all put together like that, Selina's had a hard knock life!  Almost feels like a Woman in Refrigerator situation.

And before anyone says anything, yes this was a little over 3 minutes. There was just so much to tell (and some stuff was cut out).

Good video! 
 
I still prefer her animated origin (minus the blonde hair)

#10 Posted by Om1kron (1170 posts) - - Show Bio

lol I can hear you trying not to laugh when saying "the armless master"

I loved that costume D. Cooke used in the beginning of her modern series!
Since then she's always been one of my favs :'3
 
Great video G-Man!

Always love the 3 Minute Expert videos.  But don't you think this one should have been hosted by Babs.  Seems kinda fitting.

Really great video editing work.
 
Wow, Catwoman sure has had a convoluted back story. Shows how confusing things can get when companies reboot characters in order to make them relevant to a newer audience. More often they make a bad situations worse, ala BND/OMD/OMIT.
 
Not to mention Zatanna's has some serious bipolar issues when it comes to her magic and mind changing.
 
I certainly prefer her latest outfit over her older ones. I was never much of a fat of the cat ears on her mask. She doesn't need them to be Catwoman. She is a cat bugler.

Good 3 Min Expert i was hoping you'd bring up Gotham City Sirens

#16 Posted by G-Man (30644 posts) - - Show Bio
@A-Strondinaire: No time! These need to be like ten minutes but that sort of defeats the purpose of the idea. Maybe I just need to start talking faster (you can notice a little in this video).

Yes, there was some chuckling even though I read that issue a couple times.

@G-Man:
I know it would probably just be easier to do sequel installments kind of like those tapes infomercials try and sell

The quality of these video's goes up exponentially with everyone. Keep it up guys!

Am I the only one here who hates catwoman? Just can't stand the character. Loved Hush though. You should turn these in to 5 minute videos instead. What made everyone one at Comicvine agree on 3 minutes? There must have been a meeting or a get together or something right haha?

#23 Posted by EisforExtinction (1909 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't think the Hooker origin is canon anymore.

Regardless, Catwoman is my favorite female comic character.

Great video!

Thanks G-Man, I always wondered what happened to that kid of hers.

#26 Posted by Renchamp (2286 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't read DC, so it was nice seeing something other than Batman or Superman.

@NowSayPillow: Thanks dude!  I think the more we do these the farther into After Effects I dive.  It's pretty fun.

I don't even read comics (I pick up the occasional graphic novel), but I'm interested in the plot and characters, so whenever I see a new 3-Minute Expert at the bottom of Giant Bomb, I click on through.  Love this feature, keep it up!

#29 Posted by Silkcuts (5272 posts) - - Show Bio

Best 3 min expert so far, even if it is over 3 mins.  It was an enjoyable video :D
Thanks Comicvine, this video gives me more reasons to love the Catwoman.

@Mainline:
B:TAS did not cover the origins of Batman, Joker, Catwoman, or Penguin due to the Burton movies around that time. In fact, one episode that showed Batman in Arkham after being affected by Scarecrow's fear towin said Joker's name was Jack Napier, the same name he had in 1989S BATMAN. Mask of the Phantasm was made later, but was careful not to contradict anything in 1989's BATMAN.

I think the "3-Min. Expert" title is now more of just a title for this video feature rather than a video description. 
In my opinion I don't mind them being longer than 3 minutes (otherwise we wouldn't the whole story)...

Yeah! Joey does an amazing job with these videos...  
There's a lot I didn't know about Selina... I wonder why her origins were re-written so many times?

wow! didn't know that much about catwomen at all,lol..

#39 Posted by Decept-O (7274 posts) - - Show Bio

All the added FX and art are great.   Catwoman should really be a "simple" character, but hoo-doggie, she's had more things happen to her that are far beyond most cosmic comic book characters!   
 
Catwoman will always be the best, despite all of these things.

Was that a picture of Sara at the end holding that picture frame?

One of the more compelling and readable women in the DCU. I've loved her from the start.

Quality stuff. It was interesting to see her original origin as I'm more familiar with the current stuff.

#46 Posted by Bruce Vain (1869 posts) - - Show Bio

Good video 
 
Though I thought Sara would do this one for obviouse reasons.
