Tigra - Marvel Comics

Tigra.

She's furry, she's hot and she's funny.
Along with She-Hulk, she's one of the few Marvel females that have managed to keep something of a sense of humor about them despite all they go through.
She's been in no less than four different Avengers groups, plus the Lady Liberators and the New Warriors.
And EVERY fight she is in is a catfight.....

The Tigra is the defender of the "Cat People", not people that like cats but people that are actually descendants of a race of cats created by sorcery during the Dark Ages. They have lived in the shadows ans always had a Tigra to protect them. Sort of combine that horrible Halle Berry "Catwoman" movie and the movie "The Cat People" and you are close.

Anyway HYDRA (Hail HYDRA!) goes after the Cat People for some weapon tech they have, Greer as the Cat is mortally injured trying to help them and to save her life the Cat People use science, magic and psychic powers to turn her into The Tigra.

Tigra looks like a humanoid tiger. She has sharp retractable claws and enlarged canine teeth that can puncture steel and your standard superhero skill-set, superhuman strength, speed, senses and agility. Because of her transformation, she is said to have limited mystical abilities, but these have never been explored extensively. She also has some degree of resistance to psychic attacks.

And she is the patron saint of Furry/Comic fans everywhere.

So far Tigra has only appeared in one Marvel cartoon, the absolutely horrible "The Avengers: United They Stand" (1999) where she was voiced by Lenore Zann (Rogue).
