Michelle Pfeiffer as Selina Kyle in “Batman Returns”
A painfully self-critical cat lady who dresses like a woman twice her age, Selina is a hopeless doormat. No one stomps on her quite as aggressively as her ruthless boss, department-store magnate Max Shreck (Christopher Walken). When he crosses the line and tries to kill her for digging into private files detailing his corruption, Selina is re-born as the considerably more assertive Catwoman. Determined to declaw Shreck and any other pushy man who crosses her path, Catwoman proves that the revenge of a nerd can be awfully severe.
