Maria Kyle was the mother of Catwoman (Selina Kyle), whose death led to her becoming a thief and vigilante. In some continuities, her abusive husband led her to commit suicide. In others, she had Selina with gangster Carmine Falcone, who later killed her afterwards. In any case, her death made Selina cold and protective, and inspired her to become a criminal as an adult. Maria Kyle was created by Bronwyn Carlton and Staz Johnson, first appearing in Catwoman (Volume 2) #81. (2000)
