Felicia Kyle src

Felicia Kyle is the sister of Selina Kyle, the Catwoman.

Felicia Kyle spent some time in Atchafalaya State Prison in Louisiana. When the small-time safe cracker Al Cowper was murdered at the Hotel Imperial in Gotham City, Selina Kyle, Felicia's sister, appeared in Bruce Wayne's penthouse to tell Bruce that Felicia's life might be in danger. Selina believed a hired killer would pose as a guard in Atchafalaya Prison to murder Felicia. She tells Bruce that she needs a friend to turn to but then thinks that whenever she tells Bruce of some trouble, the Batman always appears to sort it out. Bruce tells Selina to call the authorities, but Selina does not and turns away while thinking that she hadn't told him the full story.

Later in Bayou Lafourche, Calvin Traller, Mama Thibodaux and Lubin Thibodaux are talking about the recent prison escape and about how Mama Thibodaux's clothes are constantly being stolen from the line when they are interrupted by Felicia Kyle burying something near their house. Calvin Traller and Lubin Thibodaux run after her after figuring out that she was the one stealing the clothes. After Felicia runs across a fallen branch she awakens the Swamp Thing. Swamp Thing grabs Calvin Traller's 12-gauge gun and snaps it in two by hitting it against his leg.

The Batman appeared in his Whirly-Bat over Bayou Lafourche thinking about how he would have investigated Selina's story if he hadn't found out that Felicia was a suspect in the same diamond heist as Al Cowper. He figured that it was too coincidental that someone wanted to kill Felicia and that Al Cowper was recently murdered. Though the suspected hired killer could not murder her in the prison it was not predicted that Felicia would escape. Felicia was still within a 50-mile radius of the prison when the Batman spotted her from the Whirly-Bat. Batman then saw Swamp Thing tossing Calvin Traller into Lubin Thibodaux, and them both crashing into a tree.

One of the criminals fired a shot at the Whirly-Bat which caused Batman to dive from it in order to save himself. Swamp Thing found Felicia Kyle lying in a dirty puddle with her legs tangled up in vines. When he tried to help her she told him to get back. Swamp Thing lifted her out of the vines and threw her to get her to safety, but Swamp Thing did not have enough time to move and the Whirly-Bat hit him in the back. Swamp Thing was merely injured but had toppled onto the ground with the Whirly-Bat still on top of him.

Batman then woke up in a shallow pond after realizing he had blacked out and found Felicia, Lubin and Calvin missing. He then saw Swamp Thing lying under the Whirly-Bat and lifted it up for him, but Swamp Thing was unconscious. Batman turned on a torch and found Felicia's body lying in the grass with her neck snapped. He questioned whether the hired killer had caught up to her.

  • This version of Felicia Kyle, including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
  • Felicia did not go to Atchafalaya prison because of her supposed involvement in the diamond heist, but in a completely unrelated incident.
