Synopsis for "Cataclysm, Part Six: Claustrophobia"
Catwoman steals some WayneTech binoculars, that would hel pher in her next heist, from an exhibition in the upper floors of a building. She sneaks her way out throught the ventilation ducts to the elevator space of the building. As soon as she stepped over the elevator, a big tremor struck the building and the elevator collapsed leaving Catwoman hanging from a shaft. After a while she recovered from the shock and started to crawl through a lot of debris to find a way out the inner structure of the building, but when she finally got out she found that the whole building was afected by whatever happened. She found some people on the eight floor trying to help the survivors and looking for a way out. She stayed to help a little girl who was deadly injured and after a little while, the little girl died in Catwoman's arms. When Catwoman decided she had enough of that place, she jumped towards the next floor and started looking for an exit of the destroyed building. She began to feel claustrophobic in that place and she was excited when she finally found a window from where to look at the City outside; but the moment she laid her eyes on Gotham she was terribly shocked to see that the whole city has been destroyed by an earthquake.
Catwoman returned to the building to help the survivors to get out of the collapsed building. She took them out one by one and led them to the fire escapes of nearby buildings that would take them to safety. After all of them were saved, she sat upon a ledge of a building and contemplated her city. Catwoman decided that she would start helping the city anyway she can as soon as she starts to feel better, but in the meantime she mourned to see her best friend torn apart.
