-- Black Cat src
 

Black Cat’s life before the Symbiote Epidemy began on Earth-TRN018 is unknown, however it is very possible that it followed pretty much the same path as Black Cat (Earth-616). Somehow she managed to survive through the whole Epidemy and to the time Spider-man ventured to get up the Fisk tower, she remained a normal uninfected human. But at some point Black Cat was somehow captured by Spencer Smith. Due to his obsessive wish to hurt and destroy Spider-man, Spencer placed a mind-control device on her, effectively suppresing and enslaving her mind to his will. Then Spencer ordered her to go to the fisk tower and kill Spider-man. In obedience to his order, Black Cat got to the fisk tower and found Spider-man.

After Jackal steals the Sonic Generator, Spider-Man gets a call from Spencer saying that the Black Cat is unwillingly serving him now and she is after Spider-Man. Spider-Man then sees Black Cat in a trance like state, slowly bobbing forwards and backwards, repeating master's order. Without delay, she quickly forced to attack Spider-Man and he is forced to defend himself against her. After a brief fight, Black Cat suddenly stops and Peter receives a call from Spencer.

Good Option

After a brief talk with Smythe, Spider-Man defeated Black Cat, leaving her lying unconscious on the roof of the Fisk Tower, foiling Spencer's plans. It is unknown what happened to Black Cat afterwards, whether she's eventually got infected nor did she survived the Symbiote Epidemy.

Evil Option

After a brief talk with Smythe, Spider-Man defeated Black Cat, wrecked a mind-control device and leaving her brain-dead on the roof of the Fisk Tower, foiling Spencer's plans.

Abilities

Expert Thief: Felicia is a skilled (somewhat reformed) thief skilled in stealth, picking locks, escapeology, evading alarms and cracking safes.

Olympic Level Athlete: She has reflexes, agility, and stamina of an Olympic level acrobat. She is physically very strong and athletic and has great physical endurance.

Olympic Acrobat: Felicia is particularly a skilled acrobat capable of many difficult feats.

Skilled Martial Artist: She has been trained in several martial arts; most notably Goju-ryu Karate and Judo which she specializes in. Felicia is capable of taking on several armed assailants and incapacitating them without being injured herself. Her strength and, when pushed too far, ferocity in battle has proven to be overwhelming enough to defeat the mutant assassin known as Sabretooth.



Equipment

Black Cat's Costume: The costume she currently uses was designed by the Tinkerer, created using leather material, and is designed to increase many of her natural physical attributes far beyond normal human levels by means of micro servers embedded into it.

Peak Human Strength: The Black Cat's costume increases her physical strength to levels beyond the natural limits of a woman of her weight and physical build. In fact, her strength is increased to the maximum of human potential, enabling her to lift approximately 800 lbs with maximum effort.

Superhuman Speed: The Black Cat's speed is similarly enhanced, though to levels that are slightly beyond the capabilities of the finest human athlete. Over short distances, she can sprint at a top speed of about 40 miles per hour.

Superhuman Agility: The costume she wears also possesses various implants. Without these implants, she has the agility of an Olympic level gymnast. However, the implants augment her natural agility to levels that are beyond the capability and physical limits of the finest human athlete.

Retractable Claws: The gloves of the Black Cat's costume contain steel micro-filaments that form retractable claws at the tip of each finger when she flexes her fingers by triggering a magnetic surge which condenses the filaments into polarized talons. These claws are highly durable and razor sharp, allowing her to tear through most substances and to easily scale walls.

Equilibrium Earings: Felicia wears earrings obtained by the Tinkerer that interact with the balance centers of her brain to grant her enhanced agility and balance, increasing her natural bodily equilibrium and allowing her to accomplish feats beyond the capabilities of the finest human athlete.

Electromagnetic Contact Lenses: Felicia wears contact lenses obtained by the Tinkerer that allows her to see in various ranges of the electromagnetic spectrum, such as infrared and ultraviolet light. When wearing these contacts, Felicia's eyes appear to have blue irises as opposed to the green irises that Felicia naturally possesses.

Transportation

The Black Cat has a miniature grappling hook device hidden in the "fur" of each glove, designed by her father Walter Hardy, which enables her to swing from buildings in a manner similar to Spider Man and Daredevil despite lacking the associated speed of either. She can also use the cable from this device as a tightrope, wall scaling device, swing line, or as a weapon in combat.
