Catwoman is one of the most iconic characters in the Batman mythology and arguably her most iconic appearance to date came via Tim Burton’s Batman Returns (1992). Played to purr-fection by Michelle Pfeiffer, Selina Kyle/Catwoman was a standout star of the picture and was given the lion’s share of good dialogue.

In this post I am taking a look at some of that dialogue, with a rundown of Catwoman’s best lines. From killer quotes to acerbic asides, these are the best words from the best villain.
