COMIC-BOOK CREDENTIALS: Cheetara appeared alongside her fellow Thundercats in comics published by Star Comics (an imprint of Marvel Comics) and Wildstorm (an imprint of DC Comics)…. As well as a long run (no pun intended) in comics published by Marvel UK.
COMIC-BOOK WEAKNESSES: Despite an ‘80s revival, Thundercats comics have come and gone and without a TV show to keep them in the public eye they soon fade away.
Super-speed, owns an extendable staff (ooh er) and looks great in Lycra…
REASON FOR RECRUITMENT: Being superfast Cheetara would be able to get in and out of places with ease and would be perfect for missions that need efficiency. As Cheetara is easy on the eye she would be the female equivalent of Mandrake, which is handy for getting men to do whatever she wants and would allow her to use her cat like charms to purr-fection!
POTENTIAL RISK: As she’s a humanoid cat there is the possibility that Cheetara would climb all over the furniture, claw the skirting board and shit in the neighbours garden…which does not make for good relations with her other teammates. On top of that with all the running that she’d do she’s bound to smell worse than a week-old quiche left out in the sun.
CHANCES OF SURVIVAL: Very good. Cheetara is so fast that she’s almost certain to escape any danger, plus she’s a cat; so she has nine lives.
IN EVENT OF DEATH BEFORE MISSION... LIKELIHOOD OF REPLACEMENT WITH WOLVERINE: Unlikely as Wolverine can’t run particularly fast and would look a bit like a prick in her outfit.
