I recently bought FE because I wanted a DBG that my young niece would want to play with me, she likes female characters, and the only oversized villain to play in this is Harley Quinn.

I would like to find the other female characters, particularly the villains - Catwoman, Poison Ivy (is there Poison Ivy available?), and any others.

Which other DC DBG games are they in and how can I integrate them?

Thanks!

The third Crisis expansion has Poison Ivy, Cheetah, and Killer Frost as playable villains.

Side Note: There was a post from Cryptozoic that said that Catwoman was 'not to be considered a Villain' based on current continuity.

But anywho...
As stated, Crisis 3 definitely has the most playable Female Villains.
Outside of Forever Evil and Crisis 3, you're stuck with playable Heroes.

*Teen Titans has 3: Raven, Wonder Girl, Starfire.
*The first printing of Heroes Unite also has three, but that's only because of the 'first print promo' Starfire. Otherwise 2, adding Black Canary and Bat Girl
*[Base set/Original] only has 1, Wonder Woman.

Expansions:
Crisis 1 only has 1, Zatanna Zatara
Crisis 2 has 3, Star Sapphire, Indigo-1, and Red Lantern Supergirl
Crossover 1 has 2, Power Girl and Stargirl
Crossover 2 has 2, Felicity Smoak and Sara Lance (fair warning, card 'art' is from the Green Arrow live action TV show)
Crossover 3 has 2, Saturn Girl and Phantom Girl
Crossover 4 has 1, Silk Spectre
And for the sake of completeness, Rivals Batman vs. Joker and none.

The Crossover packs are designed to just be shuffled in and played, there's only about a dozen main deck cards in each one. With partial exception of #4, that has a 'hidden traitor' mechanic/cards instead of Super Villains.

Crisis packs can also be shuffled in and played, but come with co-operative "crisis mode" cards giving you another way to play.
(note: any can combine with any base-set, but Crisis 3 was optimized to be used with Forever Evil)

The other base sets are obviously fine on their own, but you can mix-n-match cards from one to another easy enough.

I just want to add that Starfire (along with Felix Faust and Joker) is available in the BoardGameGeek GeekStore: http://boardgamegeekstore.com/products/dc-comics-deck-buildi...

Phantom Girl doesn't make much sense to play outside of Crossover 3, so if you go for that get the Crossover Pack instead of buying singles.

Raven is a hero on the Teen Titans, daughter of Trigon, and a half-demon. She benefits by controlling Villains. (Which I suppose is thematic for a demonic empath!)

Star Sapphire was a villain (not sure if that is in continuity or not) when possessed by the Star Sapphire crystal. Indigo-1 was a villain that is reformed by wearing a Indigo Power Ring and feeling compassion.

By a stretch and with enough suspension of disbelief you could play with these as villains.
