Not really surprised, when did the mindwipe take place? Was it around when she turned around?

The mindwipe was back during the Satellite days--Zatanna was in her old blue and white costume. It was around the same time as all the other midwipes, it seems.

I never saw Selina as really "bad" before...I thief yes, but not evil.... the hero version of her was Brubaker....which got me into Catwoman in the first place...I just hope she chooses to remain on the "Good" side...

Selina has 'battled' with do-gooderitis for a while. She would occasionally team up with Batman and then do something selfish and get him all snippy with her and turn back to her evil ways. She became a little more do-gooderish in the previous series, but came down with a full blown attack of it when Brubaker re-started the series in this run.

But....I thought Selina didn't start becoming good until her 90's series, which even in DC time, was years after the satellite era.

The timing doesn't match up

I'm not sure of the complete timing of this, but at some point, during the Jason Todd as Robin years, Selina had reformed and learned Bruce was Batman; this was later undone when Joke and Dr. Moon brainwashed her, making her a criminal again and causing her to forget the whole "Bruce is Batman" thing in the process. I think the reform was pre-Crisis, but the brainwashing post-Crisis.

It totally doesnt match up at all.

Nevermind that Catwoman isnt much of a threat grand-scale. She was/is a thief that never wanted to take a life. Why would the JLA target her to mindwipe? Creepy fascists. Makes Zatanna VERY cruel and Green Arrow a hypocrite.

Shouldnt they concentrate on Joker, Despero and people like that? SELINA?? That's lame.

You would think they would only mind wipe only the most dangerous....i guess not....I have to agree that it is lame to make it that Selina was mind wiped....This is the first time I haven't liked whats been done during Pfiefer's run....

this pretty much invalidates the whole run so if I could find an ASCII of a middle finger I would use it right now because really.....so far I'm about as impressed as being stabbed in the face with a screwdriver with the identity crisis fallout. Infinite crisis has been great but identity was just as bad as war games/crimes

Probably some of the old 'Editorial Mandate' in there somewhere. Which sucks, as I was enjoying Pfeifer's run up 'til now. I'll stick it out for a while, but I HATE this idea, it's so lame and obvious.
