Real Name – Yolanda Montez

While Yolanda Montez was still in her mother’s womb, her mother is given experimental drugs by a mad doctor, which results in Yolanda developing abilities later in life like retractable claws and cat-like agility. During the Crisis on Infinite Earths storyline, Yolanda’s godfather, Ted Grant, the original Wildcat, is injured in action, so she takes on the Wildcat identity to honor his name. Donning a cat costume, somewhat similar to that of Catwoman but with actual whiskers, the Mexican-born heroine eventually joins up with the superhero clique known as Infinity, Inc.
