Elektra and Catwoman

Has anyone noticed  this? They are rather alike. They have kinda the same fighting style, have an affinity for sharp objects, are probably among the most sexy beings ever created, etc. Seriously though, they are rather alike. To the point that I think they could be friends. (I just found my fave Marvel character) But, do you guys agree?

 2 different comic characters, owned by 2 different companies being alike? Never!

Yes, they're so much alike Marvel and DC combined them during their "Amalgam" event, thus creating Catsai.

I think it's a case of similar roots. 
 
Catwoman was originally in a detective comic about a detective in a funny suit. 
 
Elektra was in a book leaning towards film noir (film noir has to do with detectives)

I think that what they have in common is that they are both good characters that got stuck with bad movies, LOL.

They're different. Elektra's a ninja and Catwoman's a thief.

Obviously, the point was that they're alike in the fact that they're generally the foil for their primary love interest.  Elektra with Daredevil and Catwoman with Batman.  Other than that, Elektra has more in common with Talia than she does Catwoman.

Your right they do have similarities and who liked it they fought in DC vs. Marvel?

Both starred in terrible movies.
