This Cheetah is also known as the nude version.
Several individuals have taken the name of Cheetah over the years. The first was a socialite named Priscilla Rich who resented the fame of the Wonder Woman of the 1940′s. Turning a cheetah-skinned rug into a costume, she tangled with the amazon several times. Decades later, glory-hunting archaeologist Barbara Minerva stumbled across an African tribe in the midst of a bloody ritual. She forced them to make her a part of the ceremony so she could become the vessel for the Cheetah spirit, attaining the abilities and feral nature of one of Wonder Woman’s greatest, most enduring foes.

This Cheetah was the original planned for release alongside the classic version. At ToyFair 2010, it became apparent that it would be replaced in regular retail with a clothed version, presumably to veer away from the controversial look.  Mattel said that they'd still get the version available for sale. Comic stores and online retailers received them as part of their packouts. Corner Store Comics reportedly received most bulk of them.  Because of this, this version of Cheetah remains less common than other versions.
The cardback has no picture of this figure, but shows the classic version instead.
