Captain's Library CATWOMAN Part 1

Some movie adaptations of comic book properties go so far from the source material...
 ...that a new comic book version is created!
Such was the case with the film featuring a well-known comic character that Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry starred in...
Talk about your life-altering experiences!
Check out our "sister" RetroBlog, Heroines, on Monday to continue the tale!
With only the name in common with the long-running Batman villainess/lover, this 2004 movie, done during the period when the Batman movie franchise was dormant, was determined to avoid any linkage to the Selina Kyle incarnation who had multiple appearances on TV (both live-action and animated) and two previous movies!
The comic, written by Chuck Austen, penciled by Tom Derenick, and inked by Adam DeKraker, follows an earlier version of the shooting script, so there are variations between it and what you've seen on-screen!
Halle Berry was no stranger to playing leather-clad genre characters...
...as Storm/Ororo Munroe in several X-Men flicks...

...and "Giacinta "Jinx" Johnson in the James Bond movie Die Another Day!
Considering another Black actress, Eartha Kitt, had portrayed the classic character, you'd think Halle would've wanted to stick a little closer to the source material.
Guess not!
