(Iron Man IV#16 (fb) - BTS) - Karim Mahwash Najeeb had his man Darius Faraz equip another terrorist group, Cat's-Paw, with biological enhancements. Cat's-Paw had previously been behind an arson attempt at Columbia University, but it was largely unsuccessful. A few of the terrorists were genetically manipulated and interfused with weapon-controlling chips as well as bioelectric impulses that siphoned energy directly from the limbic system. They were also given bio-hard drives attached to their optic nerves, which recorded and transmitted things they saw visually.

(Iron Man IV#16 (fb)) - Cat's-Paw, which concerned itself primarily with animal rights, attacked a corporate yacht off the coast of Barbados, planning to assassinate a man who engaged in illegal testing. They were soon attacked by SHIELD agents, including Iron Man (Tony Stark), who quickly stopped the terrorists, killing most of them and recovering one of their bodies.

(Iron Man IV#16) - Tony Stark and Maya Hansen operated on the terrorist's body and discovered the biological enhancements inside. While they were working, they were briefly interrupted by Scott.

Comments: Created by Daniel & Charles Knauf, Roberto de la Torre, and Jonathan Sibal.
