The second Cheetah (born Barbara Ann Minerva) is a DC Comics minifigure who first in LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham before making her physical debut in a LEGO DC set. She is the arch-enemy of Wonder Woman.

Background

Comics

Originally a friend of Wonder Woman, British archaeologist Barbara Ann Minerva found about an African tribe's ritual to become the vessel of the feral Cheetah spirit from the bloodthirsty god Urzkartaga. Hungry for power, Barbara forced the natives to perform the ceremony on her which transformed her into the perfect Cheetah Avatar.

The Cheetah spirit personified Barbara's darkest desires and traits, corrupting her into becoming the villainess known as "The Cheetah" who went on to become the arch-nemesis of her former friend Wonder Woman. As Cheetah, Barbara had indestructible skin, super strength, claws, fangs, the speed of a cheetah and heightened senses of smell and hearing.
