Building on the events of Batman: Year One, the four-issue Catwoman miniseries Her Sister’s Keeper told the post-Crisis origin of Selina Kyle, of how she went from homeless orphan to prostitute to a costumed thief.
In this scene, Selina and her roommate Holly, along with their numerous cats, learn that Selina’s sister Maggie has gone missing. Although she doesn’t reveal anything to the police, Selina quickly realizes that Maggie has been kidnapped by the sleazy, brutal Stan, who was once Selina and Holly’s pimp.
