Brian Kyle was the abusive husband of Maria Kyle, and the father of Selina Kyle and Maggie Kyle. He died of alcoholism at some point between his wife's suicide and Selina's debut as Catwoman in Gotham City.

In Catwoman: When in Rome, it is suggested that Brian and Maria are not Selina's biological parents and that Carmine Falcone and Louisa Falcone are, but this was never proven decisively.

In The New 52 reboot, Selina's father was renamed as Rex Calabrese, a mob boss in the Gotham underworld before the vigilante known as Batman existed. Brian Kyle was created by Doug Moench and Jim Balent, first appearing in Catwoman (Volume 2) #0 (1994).
