Cult of the Cat

Catwoman races through the hedge maze of an estate and looks at a golden statuette of a cat that she has stolen. She is pursued by several individuals wearing cat costumes wielding swords and claws. She runs into a large black cat but she is able to sweet-talk it into liking her and runs off. The pursuers go after her but the jungle cat turns on them and chases them off. However, the leader of the cult orders his men to get Catwoman, no matter what it takes.
The pursuit of Catwoman goes off the grounds of the estate and into the streets of Gotham. Feeling that she's been caught Catwoman offers to simply give back the statue but is told that the statue has been tainted and only her blood will sanctify it. At this she takes the offensive and manages to evade the cultists.
Meanwhile, Batman finishes up business with a couple of jewelry store robbers and heads back to the batmobile. He finds Catwoman inside the vehicle. Batman prepares to take her to jail but the cultists attack. Batman agrees to help only if Catwoman agrees to return everything she's ever stolen to the rightful owners. She reluctantly agrees.
Batman and Catwoman go to her hideout and Batman explains that she has gotten involved with a cult that started in ancient Egypt. Their holiest right was theft. He also explains that their leader Thomas Blake lives for revenge and that Catwoman is over her head. Just as Batman finishes explaining this the cult attacks again and nearly shoots Catwoman in the head. Batman manages to save her and the duo head out towards the furnace to escape. Unfortunately, the cultists note their escape route and turn up the gas in the furnace and light it. Batman and Catwoman barely manage to escape with their lives. Unfortunately, Catwoman is captured.
Catwoman wakes up chained to an altar while Blake asks her how she managed to elude them for so long. Stalling for time, Catwoman asks about the faith of the cultists. Blake's right hand woman is suspicious and proposes they kill her right off, but Blake believes that Catwoman can be converted and releases her.
Back in the batcave Batman interrogates a cultist that he has captured about the whereabouts of Catwoman.
Meanwhile, Catwoman is told that she can become a member of the cult if she manages to pass the initiation, which will take place in an hour. She is taken to a bedroom and left to wait. While there she starts picking out some trinkets and stuffs them into a pillowcase. Batman arrives and tries to take Catwoman away but she doesn't want to leave without the spoils. Batman tries to talk some sense into her and she feigns repentance. However, when Batman's back is to her she clubs him on the head and tries to drag him off. The cultists hear the noise and enter the room. They decide that they'll use Batman's blood to sanctify the statue and allow Catwoman into the cult.
Batman wakes up in an arena without his utility belt. The cult then releases a huge genetically engineered cat into the arena with him. Batman tires his best to deal with the monster but doesn't have much luck. Catwoman jumps in after Batman and helps him deal with the cat. After a short while she stands in front of the cat and confronts it. The cat decides that it likes her and becomes docile. Catwoman then sets it against the cultists and chaos ensues. Batman and Catwoman then escape from the arena but Blake attacks Batman and the female cultist attacks Catwoman. Catwoman easily manages to defeat the cultist and Batman gains the upper hand over Blake. Unfortunately, the genetically engineered cat arrives and appears hostile towards Batman. However, it simply pounces on Blake causing both of them to fall into the arena and get knocked out.
Later, the police arrive and take the cultists into custody and the cat is taken to Gotham Zoo. Batman is bandaged up and tells Commissioner Gordon that there is more than enough evidence to lock up the cultists. Gordon tells him that while there is enough to convict there really isn't that much.
In Paris, Selina lies on a bed surrounded by jewels. She happily states that being on the right side of the law is quite rewarding.

Tyger, Tyger

Selina Kyle enters into the Gotham Zoo after-hours and examines a tiger kept in captivity. She calmly talks to the tiger, unaware of a sniper watching her from a tree. The sniper shoots her with a tranquilizer and jumps out at her. Selina insists that she won't let the man get to the tiger but her assailant tells her he's not there for the tiger. A security guard arrives and sees he sniper carrying off Selina and is horrified by his gorilla-like appearance. The guard is shoved into the tiger pit and the sniper runs off with Selina.

Meanwhile, Bruce Wayne waits for Selina outside a restaurant and gets worried as she's very late. He calls Alfred but Alfred knows nothing. Fortunately, an employee arrives and tells Bruce that Selina called and said she'd be late, as she would be visiting the zoo.

Believing Catwoman may be up to something, Bruce heads out to the zoo and hears the guard's story about the gorilla carrying Selina off and searches the premises. Finding the tranquilizer dart, he realizes something is wrong. Elsewhere, Selina wakes up and finds a large, humanoid cat-creature approaching. The creature closely observes and sniffs at Selina. Selina is worried but a man, Dr. Emile Dorian, arrives and introduces the creature as Tygrus and observes that he likes her. Dorian goes on to explain that he is a geneticist that works on creating new creatures such as Garth the ape man (Selina's assailant) and that Tygrus is the pinnacle of his work. He has now set his sights on Selina whom he knows is Catwoman. Selina thinks he's crazy but Dorian is unfazed and injects her with a serum.

Looking to get more clues, Batman goes to see Dr. Kirk Langstrom and asks about a compound he found in the dart. Langstrom identifies it as T-99: a compound used in splicing and the brainchild of his teacher, Dorian. Langstrom shows batman a cat/monkey hybrid and explains that Dorian likes cats better than he does people and has worked on combining cat DNA with other creatures. However, Dorian moved to an island when his work started bringing negative attention. Batman heads to the island and discovers a cat with bird wings flying around. Ignoring the cat, Batman seeks to break in through the skylight but Garth catches him. Batman and Garth crash into the skylight and Dorian tells Garth to leave them. Dorian then proudly shows Batman his newest creation: a new Catwoman. Batman is horrified but Dorian believes he's done Selina a favor. Batman attempts to free Selina and demands that Dorian reverse the project but Tygrus arrives and throws Batman from his father. Tygrus looks at Selina longingly but she looks away from him. Batman gets up and Tygrus, seeing him as a rival, attacks him. Batman is scratched and Selina runs up to Tygrus telling him to stop. Selina is confused as to what she is now and Batman tells her that he'll help her. However, Dorian orders Tygrus to take Batman outside and has Garth catch Selina in a net, much to Tygrus' displeasure. Dorian is intrigued by Selina's dominant human side and views Batman as a perfect chance to test Tygrus' abilities.

Batman is given a head start to escape from Tygrus and told that if he manages to beat the creature, he'll get the antidote to Selina's condition. However, Dorian lied about the head start and sets Tygrus out after him. Batman attempts to stop Tygrus with some gas bombs but this only serves to make him angry.

Inside, Garth and Dorian prepare to inject Selina with the final part of the serum but she refuses to allow it and escapes. Dorian is unconcerned as they are on an island and there is no way for Selina to escape.

Back outdoors, Batman and Tygrus struggle with one another and Batman finally manages to catch Tygrus in a net. Tygrus angrily shouts at Batman revealing that he can talk. He explains that Dorian told him that with Batman gone, Selina will love him. Batman tells him not to count on it and leaves.

With her newfound abilities Selina manages to track Batman who is crossing a rickety broken down suspension bridge. Unfortunately, Tygrus catches up with him and in the ensuing struggle the bridge. Unfortunately, Tygrus catches up with him and in the ensuing struggle the bridge breaks causing both combatants to fall. Fortunately, Batman manages to catch a tree growing from the cliff side and evades Tygrus who seemingly falls to his death. Selina finally manages to find Batman but before the two can speak, Tygrus arrives again. Selina gets in between them and tells Tygrus that Batman is not his enemy and her affections can't be won by killing him. Tygrus is confused, as his father told him the exact opposite of what Selina just told him, and he runs off.
Dorian is outraged that Batman is still alive and scolds Tygrus for his weakness. Batman arrives and says that he's not Tygrus' enemy and all he wants is the antidote and for Dorian to be brought to justice. Tygrus, however, can't leave his father unguarded and guards him. However, Dorian, blaming Selina for Tygrus' weakness prepares to kill her. Outraged, Tygrus stops him from shooting her and in a fit of anger Dorian threatens to kill him. This proves to be the wrong thing to say since Tygrus realizes his father has turned on him and goes on a rampage. Tygrus destroys the lab causing an explosion that topples the building. Selina is upset that Tygrus has died but Batman assures her they don't know that yet. Batman's assurance proves to be true as Tygrus emerges from the building carrying Dorian. Selina is now despaired as she is now stuck as a real Catwoman. Tygrus invites her to stay with him, but when Selina insists that she can't live like that, he sadly gives her the antidote and returns to the forests of the island. While Selina invites Tygrus to come with her, he turns her down and returns to the forest while Batman thinks back on Blake's poem "The Tyger."

Precious Birthstones

Selina Kyle, at home with Isis on her birthday, sees a report on the billion-dollar Jewel of the Empress at a Baroness' birthday party. Suiting up as Catwoman, she breaks into the building, brushing aside a discarded stuffed mouse, and steals an unrelated diamond necklace. Nearby, she finds a young girl out of bed. As she tries to get her back to bed (mainly to keep anyone from hearing her), she hears her saying something about bijou, which she remembers enough French to translate as "jewel."

The girl leads her to a safe. Catwoman, excited, manages to catch "Jewel of the Empress and others" from her speech. She opens the safe without problems... and finds Bijou, a cat and her two kittens, trapped inside. Catwoman accepts one of the kittens, resigned to what she has gotten, and wishes the girl a happy birthday.


Harley and Ivy survey the wares at Spencer's Electronics - specifically, a big-screen TV. Ivy claims that it's beneath her to steal electronics, but Harley wants to buy it. When Ivy asks who would hire her, she seeks out Catwoman, who insists that she works alone. On the other hand, she's going out of town, and needs somebody to take care of a kitten named Bongo. She's sure they'll become friends.

Harley duly begins to care for Bongo, a hungry young lion. It's not long before he makes it clear that he wants to go out, so Harley takes him out in a baby carriage, complete with pacifier. After surprising at least one woman on the street, while Harley is looking the other way, Bongo chases a dog in another direction, forcing Harley to run after him.

The chase takes them through Sam's Fine China, up a tree, and in the middle of traffic, wearing Harley down physically and mentally, leaving them both growling at each other. That night, Catwoman arrives home, and finds Harley and Bongo curled up together on the sofa.

The Three Babes

Harley Quinn sits, bored, in a holding cell where Poison Ivy and Catwoman are both asleep. After failing to elicit a response from Catwoman, she bothers Poison Ivy for a story. She tries "Jack and The Beanstalk" but Poison Ivy responds she hates; then Harley tries "Sleeping Beauty" and "Princess in The Pea" but Poison Ivy dislikes those stories as well. In the end, they go with "Goldilocks".

Ivy tells the story of the "Three Babes" (herself, Harley and Catwoman) going on a walk to let their food cool while "Goldilocks" (Batgirl) invades their house. She discards Catwoman and Ivy's food in favor of Harley's, goes through a similar routine by sitting down in their chairs... and then Catwoman hurries her through the "bed" segment to the part where they catch her. Goldilocks tries to escape, but is dragged back and thoroughly beaten up by the Three Babes. She finally manages to flee the scene, and is never seen again.

Harley applauds the story, Catwoman is ambivalent, and Batgirl arrives at their cell to express her approval at "a happy ending."
