WHAT IS THE BATMAN FAMILY? - For those who don't know, Batman has had four Robins. Of the four Robins, one grew up to become "Nightwing" (Dick Grayson, the original Robin); one became the "Red Hood" (Jason Todd, second Robin murdered by the Joker and resurrected by some merging of multiple universes); "Red Robin" (Tim Drake, a computer savvy teen who deduced Batman's identity); and the last Robin (Damian Wayne, Bruce Wayne's illegitimate son born of a drug-induced night with a female leader of global assassins). Currently, Batman has no Robin, but that may change. There's also a Batgirl and a Batwoman in current comic lore.
Being a HUGE Batman fan, and a HUGE fan of Robin and most of his grown up incantations (except the Red Hood- never liked his personality), I was thrilled to see all of those characters represented by teens who would be the right age!

CATWOMAN - Catwoman is Selina Kyle. She first appeared in Batman #1 (Spring 1940) in which she is known as The Cat. She started off as a jewel thief and adversary of Batman. Now, she's a superhero most of the time, and sometimes a thief with a conscience, a member of one of the Justice Leagues, and has romantic interests in Batman. I love the character!
