"How is your night vision, Batman? We cats see in the dark, you know? You dress as one of us, but secretly you fear your animal nature. You bury your animal instincts beneath layers of duty and order. Allow me to carve it out for you."

Barbara Minerva, also known as Cheetah, is a super-villainess who was transformed into a human/cheetah hybrid and given enhanced physical attributes.


Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts[]

At some point, they were recruited by the Penguin to join his Animilitia team and profit from the Midas Heart asteroid. About three months after her escape, Cheetah was sent to the Jewelry Store to plant a force field transmitter under the cover of theft. Nightwing confronted her thinking she was Catwoman. After Nightwing taunted her, Cheetah hinted she was not alone. Killer Croc came threw the floor and fought Nightwing. She planted the transmitter then defeated Nightwing.

During the Gotham Zoo break-in, Cheetah fought Batman at the big cat house. She mocked him for trying to bury his animal instincts and attacked. Batman eventually figured out her pattern and left an explosive on the tree trunk before he leapt away. Cheetah was sent plummeting to the ground. Batman threw a Batarang which she easily caught then he detonated it. Cheetah fled the scene with Silverback as Fire Bat lifted him away. At Bumbershoot Mechanics, Silverback and Cheetah went after Green Arrow on the roof across the street. She proved agile enough to slash his arrows in half and later managed to trip the Flash. Shocked at first Silverback really had a mechanical body, she escaped with him. They worked on getting the force field around the Aviary online. The hacked Tiger Claw and Blade Wolf took down the Animilitia. Cheetah was taken into police custody as she declared she shouldn't be locked up like an animal.
