Catwoman used a whip - sometimes a bullwhip, sometimes a cat o' nine tails - as both a weapon and an infiltration tool.
Selina Kyle of Earth-Two used a cat o' nine tails as her weapon of choice during her whole career as Catwoman. She concealed the whip as part of her belt and would use whips of different lengths, according to the need.
The Catwoman of New Earth as well as her Prime Earth counterpart started using the long version of the whip during their early days as Catwoman. Catwoman used the whip both to defend herself in combat and as a method of transportation, similar to Batman's Batrope.
The New Earth Catwoman kept the whip around her waist or inside her thigh-high boots until she changed her first spandex suit for a more practical catsuit. After that change, she had the whip incorporated into the suit as a belt of sorts.
- The first time a "cat-o-nine tails" was present in a Catwoman story, it was used as a weapon against her.
