Icicle

(Joar Makent part #1])

The Golden Age version of the character, though he endured into the 1990s. Criminal, genius, wielder of the cold gun. As of January of 2020, this profile was overhauled for concision and smoother reading. It was also cleft in two to facilitate reading on smartphones.

Black Widow

(Natalia Romanova) (Profile #1 - 1927-1946)

Catwoman

(Profile #1 - 1940s, part 1)

This is specifically for the earliest (1940-1949) versions of Catwoman (a.k.a. the Cat, a.k.a. the Cat Woman). Because she changes a lot over time. As of November of 2018, this article was overhauled, and is now presented as a two-parter due to all the additional material.
