Among the most bizarre comic-book responses to sixties counterculture was the short-lived DC series Brother Power the Geek (created by Joe Simon), about a mannequin who miraculously comes to life and uses his super-strength to defend his hippie friends while avoiding capture by the Establishment.

Like all characters that exist for any extended length of time, Catwoman has undergone a number of changes over the years. I thought that it would be interesting to look at what Selina Kyle was like back in the day, in order to see what's changed about her and what's stayed the same.

Let's Begin.
