Biography

Femme Fatale has blonde hair and blue eyes, wears a white jumpsuit with multiple blue stripes, a blue mask in the shape of the feminine "Venus" symbol, and white boots. She is a self-proclaimed feminist, bank robber and master thief who steals only Susan B. Anthony coins since all other forms of money have men on them (at the time of the episode's production). She hypocritically claims feminist arguments to justify her crimes, despite not knowing even the simplest facts about Susan B. Anthony, the activist who voted illegally in 1872. With shoddy reasoning, wrapped in some lies, she convinces Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup to fight against men and overlook her own crimes as feminist empowerment so she can continue to rob banks. Despite her misandry, her speech to the Powerpuff Girls and the designs on her costume, Femme Fatale is equally cruel to women. She stole Susan B. Anthony coins from a female bank employee broke the arm of a policewoman and (allegedly) stole the hairstyle of a teenage girl.

At the end of the episode Equal Fights, she is promptly defeated (quite harshly) and taken to jail after the sisters tell her who the suffragist Susan B. Anthony really was. After being defeated by the girls and taken in prison, she was seen in a prison uniform and a matching prison cap, complaining that it makes her look fat.
