Calendar Girl was a minor villain in The New Batman Adventures. She appears in the episode, "Mean Seasons".

Biography

Paige Monroe is a former model and actress who's fame dwindled as she got older. Monroe's transformation into a villain and one of Batman's colorful opponents was out of vanity. After her modeling and acting career dried up and she vanished from public view, she could not find work. It was never clearly discussed what she did in the years after professional career ended. It can only be assumed that she spent that time plotting revenge, gathering resources and fostering a deep seated psychotic obsession with getting revenge on those people and companies/brand names who had turned their back on her when she turned 30.

She eventually re-emerged as Calendar Girl and proceeded to attack each of her former employers — Gotham Motors and Donna Days Fashion on the anniversary of her contract expiration. Each contract expired during a different season and she dressed in a themed costume for each occasion, with her attacks having a similar theme. Additionally, she hired and/or used attractive male henchmen. Calendar Girl was based out of an old nightclub she owned called Faces. Her plans for revenge were thwarted by Batman and his team. She is unmasked screaming for person not to look at her. Batgirl was stunned since Page is still beautiful. Batman points out that she can't see that anymore, because all she sees are the flaws.

She mainly uses explosive weapons that look like holiday ornaments such as easter eggs and candy corn earrings. She also seems trained in physical combat but her skills aren’t match to able to defeat Batman in battle but using a scythe to give distance from him was able to help.
