1995 Skybox DC Villains: The Dark Judgment Cheetah Trading Card #22

Hunting is second nature to the Cheetah. The predatory Ms. Barbara Minerva was more a treasure hunter than an archeologist when she underwent the arcane ritual that transformed her into the supernatural Cheetah. Now she is addicted to that power and will do anything to keep it.

A lot of the painters on this card set seemed to confuse "dark" with drab or pretentious. Whole binder pages swim in blacks and reds, so the vibrantly colorful sections devoted to Tony Harris and this card's artist, Mark Chiarello, were a delightful relief. Plus, you can actually make out the gold foil character name in my scan (bonus!)
