Flashpoint Vol 2 1 Textless
This section of the history takes place during Flashpoint, a massive crossover event set in an alternate timeline to the mainstream DCU. History was completely changed when Professor Zoom finally found a way to erase his nemesis the Flash without harming his own legacy.

Selina Kyle was an orphan who became a thief called "Catwoman". She was once caught by Thomas Wayne, also known as the Batman, during a bank heist and spared after he learnt that she had no loved ones and would have been about the same age as his dead son if he were alive.[1]

Thomas took her in and made her his sidekick, growing to care for her like a father. This caused him to regain some of his happiness that he had lost with the death of Bruce and insanity of his wife Martha Wayne, leading him to abandon his violent ways.[1]

She was however unexpectedly shot by Martha, who had come to be known as the Joker, through the gut and was paralyzed. This resulted in Wayne relapsing into his violent ways.[1] The quadriplegic Kyle later started aiding the Gotham Security and Wayne in his war on crime as the hacker and information broker Oracle.[2]
