The Feminist Avenger
Michelle Pfeiffer took the role of Catwoman (Selina Kyle) in Tim Burton's Batman Returns
Arguably the outstanding villain of the Tim Burton era, Michelle Pfeiffer's deadly kitten with a whip brought sex to the normally neutered franchise.
Peter Travers of Rolling Stone praised her for giving the "feminist avenger a tough core of intelligence and wit" and called her a "classic dazzler."
