Cheetah is a villain in the Wonder Woman comics, recently appearing in the recent comics in Greg Rucka’s run. Cheetah, also known as Dr. Barbara Ann Minerva, was a British archeologist transformed into the Cheetah by an ancient native ritual. Wonder Woman, friends with Dr. Minerva, does her best to get her to return from being the Cheetah as she still cares for her.
Kristen Wiig is most notable for her work on SNL and in comedy films, such as the Ghostbusters remake.
