Indexer Notes

Meow Girl's costume is highly reminiscent of DC Comics' Catwoman, particularly the version portrayed by Michelle Pfeiffer in the film "Batman Returns". Cape Man is also very reminiscent of DC Comics' Batman, while Tiger Girl is just a version of Meow Girl's costume with orange and black tiger stripes.
