The only version I care about is the current Cooke version (as originally written by Ed Brubaker). Brubaker made Catwoman interesting for the first time in ages, and his run on the book is good enough to stand side by side with Selina's other appearances in the holy trilogy of Bat-books; Year One, Long Halloween and Dark Victory.
I'm with you. Brubaker and Cooke are the only creative team to ever make me care about Catwoman. They turned her from a campy, vampy cipher of a villainess into an actual interesting antiheroine. Those first 24 issues from the Brubaker run are pure gold, and I love my DC Direct, Takara Microman, Minimate, and Heroclix figures of Catwoman in that costume.
I agree with all of that.
But the character's comic appearances have little do do with how I want my toys to look. The toy is a toy and it has differnet needs. And as much as I like the current look, I think the Balent purple and black look like in DCD's Long Halloween Catwoman is a more interesting looking toy.
Plus, I already have a sexy chick in a black catsuit, and her name is Black Widow.
