|Real name||Felicia Hardy|
|First appearance||"Heroes for Hire #1"|
When Felicia was a child, her parents got divorced. Her father quickly became one of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s most wanted as "The Cat". Her mother, who was very rich, made sure that Felicia has no contact with her father.
Meeting her Father
When Felicia was seventeen, she ran away from home and met her father. He trained her in the ways of the cat and at first she took up his mantle, as the Black Cat. She had many encounters with Spider-Man, even forming an on-again off-again relationship with him. Although, they eventually broke up for good.
Heroes for Hire
When Black Cat saw an advertisement on TV about heroes working for money, she knew she had found her calling. She broke into the Heroes for Hire headquarters and demanded to be part of the team. At first, Luke and Iron Fist refused, but she took them both down and they accepted her onto the team.
