Selina, or Irena Dubrovna, had relocated to downtown Gotham. She had also just given birth to a daughter (20 inches long / 7lb 8oz) named Helena. Catwoman still prowled the East End. After getting knocked down, she took out three burglars who were stealing cameras. As the cops arrived, someone took pictures and thought her to be a bit off her game. Slam picked Selina up and dropped her off at her new apartment. Holly (with a black eye) met them outside. Angle Man, now obsessed with Catwoman, developed his pictures. One of the men taken down earlier talked to police. Their main suspect in the Black Mask killing was fingered - Catwoman. Batman showed up in Selina's apartment. He brought her daughter gifts - a scholarship to any college and a teddy bear. They talked about the new Catwoman. Angle Man captured Catwoman.

Storyline: Selina, while giving her daughter a night-time snack, caught some of a news show where two men were debating the death of Black Mask. She got a call from Karon who was worried about Holly. She told her not to worry - long nights were a part of the job. Catwoman woke up, sans mask, in Angle Man's presence. She got free and beat him down. Someone from a nearby rooftop recorded the fight. Slam was questioned in a bar about Catwoman and Black Mask by a cop who used to work with his son. After Selina put the baby back to bed, she found a tv show hosted by a guy calling himself Film Freak. He showed the video of Catwoman fighting Angle Man. After the show, Film Freak called Angelo Bend - Angle Man.

Storyline: Film Freak watched his new Catwoman footage and poisoned the man who'd filmed it. The two Catwomen took a taxi home; Holly got a call from Ted, who wanted some help with another take down. After their success, Wildcat got on to her for using his real name during combat. Lenahan realized the Catwoman in the film wasn't the same one from other evidence photos. Slam's son visited him at his office. Film Freak met again with Angle Man - he had a lead on the "real" Catwoman - Irena Dubrovna (which was the lead character's name in an old movie called Cat People). Selina got a call from her nanny - some men had broken into the apartment. She got back into costume and headed home. Angle Man and Film Freak were holding her daughter hostage.

Storyline: While Catwoman (Selina / Irena) froze looking at her child in Angle Man's arms, Slam called the PD looking for his son. Selina killed the lights, grabbed her daughter, and ran. She took a blade to the ankle as she fled, allowing her would-be captors to catch up. Wildcat and Catwoman (Holly) were hanging out on a rooftop when Green Lantern (Allan Scott) appeared. He took Wildcat off for some JSA action against a "future version" of Degaton. Selina crashed Film Freak's camera into his eye and kicked Angle Man in the face as he fired at her. After they were both down, she called Holly, who was in the midst of being arrested by Lenahan. Selina called Zatanna.

Storyline: Instead of making Angle Man forget, Zatanna made him remember all his embarrassments. Holly was read her rights and signed something. She was shown Black Mask's skull. Lenahan told her he knew she didn't do it, but she was Catwoman, and Catwoman killed him. She called Wildcat for help. Zatanna finished up and sent her two victims to go confess their crimes. Angelo Bend went to the police to confess, Edison (the Film Freak) went to his studio. He killed his producer. Selina thought back on visiting Sam Bradley in the hospital. He took down two men trying to kill him (with a bit of help from her).
