Werewolves, also known as lycanthropes or wolfmen, are mythological humans with the ability to shapeshift into wolves or wolf-like creatures, either purposely, being bitten by another werewolf or after being placed under a curse. Most werewolves develop common physical attributes including enhanced strength, speed, reflexes and sharpened senses. Some legends maintain that a human will only transform into a werewolf on the three nights of the full moon, but this is not true in all matters and there have been several documented cases of people assuming a wolf-like shape during various lunar cycles.
On Earth-Two in 1939, Batman matched wits against an alleged werewolf known as the Mad Monk. Though he was referred to as a werewolf and did demonstrate the ability to transform into a wolf, the Mad Monk's abilities were more in line with those of a vampire than an actual werewolf. These two categories of monster are not necessarily exclusive, that is, nothing prevents a living werewolf from being turned, willingly or unwillingly, into a vampire by a vampire.
In the Quality Universe in 1947, Captain Triumph's girlfriend Kim was kidnapped by a man named Raffrey, who, in reality, was a self-made werewolf. Captain Triumph punched him to death, then he reverted to human form, and died. 
Professor Achilles Milo developed a drug that would cure Anthony Lupus's headaches, but ended up turning him into a werewolf. This was deliberate on Prof. Milo's part, as he wanted to manipulate Lupus into killing Batman.

Average Strength level
Most werewolves are vulnerable to physical contact with silver. A silver bullet fired at a strategic locale, such as the head or the heart will kill a werewolf. The same applies to bladed weapons made of silver including swords, spears and daggers. Repeated blows from a blunt object made of silver will eventually kill a werewolf.
Type of Government: None; Werewolves are generally solitary creatures and rarely congregate with one another. One of the few exceptions is the Werewolf Nation from Earth-50 continuity, which is a monarchy.
