Abandoned ‘Catwoman’ Plot and Artwork Had Her Strolling Naked Through Wayne Manor

Abandoned Catwoman Plot and Artwork Preview

Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman, has always been one of the sexier characters to inhabit the Batman universe, and artists never miss an opportunity to take full advantage of her skin-tight catsuit. However, it appears that in early issues of the Catwoman relaunch as part of The New 52, things may have finally gone too far.

In the abandoned storyline, Kyle comes to the conclusion that Batman and Bruce Wayne are the same person by comparing their kisses. The next thing she does is the only logical thing – she zips over to Wayne Manor and proceeds to strip naked on the lawn while Bruce and Alfred look on via surveillance cameras. Only a few strategically placed panels on the pages keep the book from having be kept behind the comic store counter.

Check out the unused art and the full story after the jump.

Artist Guillem March, via her blog where she originally released this unused art, explains the situation:

I was asked to draw some new pages from a new piece of script. I got an explanation about why DC wanted to change the story and get some new pages done, but I guess it all had to do with the sexy depiction of Selina in these original pages. I didn’t mind at all, since it wasn’t my fault and I got paid for the extra job. The only thing I don’t like is to work on stuff that remains unused.

So the art wasn’t abandoned strictly due to the risqué content, but in coordination with a complete change to the script’s storyline. Even if the art wasn’t the only reason for the abandonment, the script change must have come at the last-minute as colorist Tomeu Morey had already fully colored several of the pages before March was given the new script.

Check out the full sequence of pages below. Do you think the art went too far?

  1. If it went too far? In one panel, there’s a little bit of butt crack. No, it didn’t go too far.

  3. Nobody loves a naked, sexual Selina Kyle, more than me. But her discovering Batman’s secret identity that easily, would have been disappointing. Them making love right there on the front lawn, would have been LESS disappointing.

  4. Well, I mean, it’s not like any of the other Batman rogues ever kissed Bruce Wayne in and out of the costume.

  5. Poison Ivy has at one point. But you’re correct. A kiss could technically serve as an identifier.
