Alternately enemy and ally to Wonder Woman, the Cheetah forever seeks a balance between her human and animal natures.
Archaeologist Barbara Ann Minerva always had a reputation for going to any lengths to retrieve the artifacts she was after, no matter the risk. Her attitude, unsurprisingly, resulted in tragedy. After growing increasingly obsessed with mythology and divinity, Barbara Ann took her team deep into the wilds of Africa, only to be trapped and forced to participate in an ancient, arcane ritual that cursed and transformed her into a human-cheetah hybrid with a lust for blood.
Once a friend of Wonder Woman’s, Barbara Ann blamed her transformation on Diana’s inability to save her, and harbored a grudge against the superhero that drove her to the point of madness.
Prior to Barbara Ann’s turn, two other women held the title of the Cheetah: Priscilla Rich and her niece, Deborah Domaine—both of whom served as enemies of Wonder Woman in the Golden, Silver and Bronze Ages.
