Garbo

The world’s most beautiful movie star became the world’s most elusive. Garbo once said, “The story of my life is about back entrances, side doors, secret elevators, and other ways of getting in and out of places so that people won’t bother me.” Except at the very beginning of her career, she granted no interviews, signed no autographs, attended no premieres, and answered no fan mail. Yet she remains one of the most celebrated icons of silent films and early talkies.

Marilyn Pumping Iron, 1952

Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.

While Catwoman is the unquestionable queen of catfights—she’s mixed it up with everyone from Lois Lane to Batgirl to Sharon Stone!—some of her sinister sisters have sharpened their claws and embraced their inner witches for comics’ greatest grudge matches. Next time you get into it with your closest girlfriend, remember how these colorful divas left their mark:

Cheetah vs. Wonder Woman: From her early days as a pampered rich girl in feline-spotted “pajamas” to her current incarnation as a werewolf-like cat-woman, the Cheetah has meted out revenge against the Amazon Princess since 1943. With the strength and cunning of a jungle cat, this supervixen even eliminated her competition—a male Cheetah—to keep Wonder Woman as her exclusive territory.

 

Deathbird vs. Ms. Marvel/Binary: Forget claws—Deathbird of Marvel’s Shi’Ar Empire has deadly talons, which can slice through glass . . . plus her 18-foot wingspan and ability to bench press 6 tons makes her one formidable femme. While Deathbird has allied with the X-Men, she has not gotten along with the superheroine Ms. Marvel, their enmity dating back to their first clash in 1977 and continuing on to the do-gooder’s later identity of Binary. 

 

• Blackfire vs. Starfire: With a name like Komand’r, is it any wonder that Blackfire, a native of Tamaran, became its warrior queen? Blackfire’s intense jealousy of her little sister Starfire led to their mutual capture and transformation into super-siblings, and since 1982 these battling sisters have broken nails and bones in their tussles, including an outer-space scuffle in 2006.

 

Titania vs. She-Hulk:  During Marvel’s Secret Wars storyline (1984–1985), superstrong Titania beat green giantess She-Hulk into a coma, and ever since it’s been duck-and-cover for passersby whenever these two cross paths. One of the most unusual sites for one of their battles was a lingerie shop, where they tangled in 1992.

 

Talia vs. Scandal: Villains United #6 (2005) featured a killer catfight between the offspring of two immortals: Ra’s al Ghul’s daughter, Talia, and Vandal Savage’s daughter, Scandal. While others “scrabble in the dirt,” these two rogues of royalty dueled in honor of their fathers.

Diana Rigg as Emma Peel

Diana Rigg as Emma Peel

Peel drips sex appeal. Few people know that her name “Emma Peel” is a twist on “Man Appeal” or “M. Appeal”–her sex appeal is key to her tongue-tying her adversaries. Amidst witty banter, Ms. Peel constantly rescues Steed from his latest blunder. Decked in classic mini-skirts, op-art mod dresses, and bold black and white ensembles, Rigg as Ms. Peel made a strong fashion statement on The Avengers and covers of fashion magazines alike. Enter  a cool slice of trivia: the actress was allergic to leather, so her costume designer, John Bates, fashioned her catsuits out of PVC instead. But Peel was more than just a sexy spy. She was a feminist icon before the term came into parlance and well before women were fully appreciated for their strength and smarts. With an IQ of 160 she could easily decode the latest Russian sub missile target while speaking to the premiere in three languages.

The ultimate form of flattery is parody. Tell us why she runs circles around Agent 99.
