Powers/Abilities: Hellcat possesses a “demon-sight” that allows her to see through mystical illusions, and enhanced senses allowing her to detect demonic influence and various forms of magic. Highly resistant to magical injury, Hellcat is also sensitive to other psychic auras. She can alter her clothes and costume at will through mental effort. Hellcat occasionally utilizes telepathic and telekinetic talents enabling her to move things with her mind, project force fields and blasts, and to maintain an empathic connection with her loved ones. Hellcat is an experienced and limber athlete and martial artist, and her strength, speed, and agility are honed to peak human levels. Hellcat's costume possesses retractable steel claws on all four appendages, and could formerly use a cable-claw which she utilized as a grappling hook. Hellcat formerly used a Shadow Cloak through which she could draw weapons from other dimensions and teleport vast distances, even to other dimensions. Hellcat initially thought her powers were a product of her Cat suit. While under the influence of Avarrish, Hellcat could fire occult bolts and blasts through her eyes that caused others to experience madness; other capabilities in this form remain unrevealed. Patsy was briefly split into five facets of her personality by a spell cast by Gargoyle; she was soon reintegrated.
(Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Deluxe Edition#5) - Patsy Walker grew up in Centerville, California, the daughter of Dorothy and Joshua Walker, an aeronautical engineer.
(Defenders I#89/Marvel Comics: History of the Marvels (fb) - BTS) - Patsy’s mom pressured her to become a child model, wearing various fashions, including those designed by Millie the Model. Eventually Dorothy developed the idea to make Patsy a comic book star and began writing and publishing (Atlas Comics became her publisher) a line of comics that made Patsy world famous. The family housekeeper, Dolly Donahue, frequently took care of Patsy.
(Avengers Annual 2000 (fb) - BTS) - Dorothy signed up everyone in Centerville, giving her authorization to publish and produce comic books and other merchandise about them. Patsy and her best friend, Hedy Walker, became the most famous names, and the residents of Centerville became immortalized through games, dolls, comics, and even a TV series about her.
(Marvel Fanfare I#59 (fb) - BTS) - Patsy’s aunt, Sophia McConnell, acted as Patsy’s business manager.
(Defenders I#107 (fb) - BTS) - When Patsy was nine, her Grandpa Parker died, and Patsy refused to attend the funeral.
(Defenders I#109) - Patsy’s parents fought frequently and her dad soon left, abandoning the family. Patsy seldom heard from him again, not knowing where he was or what he was doing.
(Avengers I#144 (fb) - BTS) - Patsy and Hedy grew up surfing, studying, dancing, romancing, and constantly battling each other. Patsy fell for Robert “Buzz” Baxter, though she dreamed of New York’s heroes and had a huge crush on Mister Fantastic of the Fantastic Four. Buzz joined the military and got injured.
(Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Deluxe Edition#5) - When Patsy’s comic book was cancelled, after over a decade of publication, she was relieved, having felt very strange about the fame she’d had.
(Avengers I#144 (fb) - BTS/Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe I#5) - Despite Dorothy’s disapproval, Patsy married Buzz. They scraped by their first few years of marriage, moving occasionally over the following seven years as Buzz worked at various Air Force positions. Patsy acted as the perfect housewife, but Buzz started getting angry and sometimes violent.
(Fantastic Four Annual#3/Marvels#2) - Patsy and Hedy attended the wedding of Mister Fantastic and the Invisible Girl, and marveled at all the celebrities there, including Millie the Model and Tony Stark.
(Amazing Adventures II#13) - Baxter was appointed by the Air Force to conduct a special investigation at the Brand Corporation and to take over security there. He and Patsy were told about a dangerous Beast who had been sighted around Brand recently. The two of them were introduced to Linda Donaldson, and moved to meet Hank McCoy, who wasn't in. Baxter considered breaking into McCoy's apartment, but Patsy convinced him not to.
(Amazing Adventures II#14) - During a security breach, Patsy hugged Buzz tightly for protection when the furred Beast jumped over them. In the middle of the crisis, Hank McCoy showed up, with Linda Donaldson, and Patsy stood up for him against Buzz's tirade. Buzz promptly told her to shut up.
(Amazing Adventures II#15) - Early in the morning, Patsy answered her door and was shocked to see the Beast collapse. Against her better judgment, she tended to him and watched as his fur bizarrely turned black. Beast talked in his delirium and she deciphered that he was Hank McCoy, revealing this knowledge when he awoke.
(Avengers I#144 (fb)) - Patsy made Beast promise to make her a super heroine.
(Amazing Adventures II#15) - They talked briefly, then Beast rushed off. Later, Buzz angrily confronted McCoy on his mysterious absences while McCoy's friend Warren Worthington stood nearby. Patsy lied in their behalf, confirming their false alibi.
(Avengers I#144 (fb) - BTS) - Patsy and Buzz soon divorced. She watched the papers closely, waiting for news of the Beast so he could keep his promise.
(Avengers I#139) - Patsy found a newspaper, which showed the Avengers with their newest member Beast.
(Avengers I#140) - Patsy showed up at Avengers Mansion looking for Beast. When Jarvis told her Beast was unavailable, Patsy sat on the front porch to wait for him.
(Avengers I#141) - When the Avengers (Beast, Captain America, Iron Man, Moondragon, Scarlet Witch, Thor, Vision) returned, Patsy demanded Beast's attention, threatening to reveal his secret identity unless he helped her become a super hero, but she quickly learned the Avengers already knew his secret identity. Captain America agreed to let Patsy accompany on a mission, and she went with the team (minus Moondragon and Thor) to Brand Corporation where they were attacked by the Squadron Supreme (Dr. Spectrum (Joe Ledger), Golden Archer, Hyperion (construct), Lady Lark, Whizzer (Stanley Stewart). Patsy tried to attack Lady Lark, but was knocked out by her scream.
(Avengers I#142) - Patsy and the Avengers were held in a cage and confronted by Hugh Jones and Buzz. Patsy yelled at him that he had changed, but he walked away indifferently.
(Avengers I#143) - The Avengers managed to escape, and Iron Man helped Patsy to the ground.
(Avengers I#144) - Patsy grew overwhelmed as the Avengers fought off a guided missile, then Captain America and Iron Man saved Patsy from a large fall using impressive agility and reflexes. They came across the Cat's uniform, a heroine Patsy had only read about, and Patsy agreed to wear the costume in a ploy, choosing to go by the name Hellcat. At the Avengers' side, Hellcat rushed to fight the Squadron Supreme, but Buzz sent them all back to the Squadron's homeworld, an alternate Earth.
(Avengers I#147) - The Avengers landed on the Squadron Supreme's Earth, and Hellcat and Beast were quickly defeated by Hyperion. Hellcat utilized Olympic level agility during the fight.
(Avengers I#148) - With the Avengers still fighting the Squadron, Hellcat evaded a charge from Amphibian but was hit by a blast of paste from Tom Thumb. Using her grappling claw, though, Hellcat and Beast were able to pull Thumb's hover-chair to the ground.
(Avengers I#149) - The Avengers returned to Earth and fought the Brand security officers, Hellcat continuing to delight in her new hero status, until Orka was released to knock them all unconscious. Baxter and Jones strapped the heroes into a until that would soon incinerate them, but Hellcat managed to escape, attacking Baxter when he taunted her. He freed the other Avengers when she threatened to scratch his eyes out.
(Avengers I#150) - Hellcat attended a meeting alongside the Avengers (Beast, Captain America, Iron Man, Moondragon, Scarlet Witch, Thor, Vision, Wasp, Yellowjacket) to determine the new Avengers line-up. Hellcat was eager to join the team officially.
(Avengers I#151) - Though initially eager to join the Avengers officially, Patsy chose to accompany Moondragon for official training, planning on coming back to join the team someday.
(Defenders I#44 (fb)) - Hellcat underwent extensive training with Moondragon on Titan, and just as she'd started learning to use her mental powers, Moondragon sensed the danger of the Star of Capistan and sent Hellcat back to Earth to warn the Avengers and Dr. Strange.
(Defenders I#44) - Hellcat entered Dr. Strange's mansion and met Valkyrie and Red Guardian there. She explained her cause, but they noted the people of New York were already being mesmerized by the Star. They rushed to find the Star, which had possessed Strange into becoming the Red Rajah. When they arrived, they found Hulk, Nighthawk, Power Man, and many citizens under Red Rajah's control.
(Defenders I#45) - Valkyrie, Red Guardian, and Hellcat fought a mountainous image of Dr. Strange that Red Rajah created, then fled, barely saving Red Guardian from being ensorcelled. The women discussed possible reasons why they may have been able to resist Rajah's teachings, Hellcat assuming that her mind powers protected her. Clea joined them and they returned to fight Rajah and his minions. Hellcat successfully avoided the Hulk's blows. Clea freed Strange, and the Defenders made amends, though Strange announced he was leaving the team.
(Defenders I#46) - Strange, Power Man, and Red Guardian left the team, and Hellcat joined. She rode with Valkyrie on Aragorn to Nighthawk's riding academy, which was to be the new Defenders headquarters, and they were shocked to see Scorpio there wielding the Zodiac Key. He snared Hellcat and threw her into Nighthawk. The teammates worked together to disarm Scorpio, but he turned into water and got the Key back, then departed.
(Defenders I#47) - Hellcat was dropped off by Valkyrie at Avengers Mansion, which felt like home to her, and saw Wonder Man there, who she assumed was a villain and attacked. He collapsed machinery on her then stopped it from crushing her, but the machine collapsed and knocked her unconscious. When Hellcat awoke, she saw Valkyrie and allies Jack Norriss and Moon Knight fighting Wonder Man, and stopped them. Nick Fury then sent a report to the Avengers that they were looking for Jack Norriss.
(Defenders I#48) - The heroes chose to release Jack to Fury, despite Jack's reservations. They departed, and Hellcat sympathized with Valkyrie's misgivings about Jack (who was married to Valkyrie's host body). They went back to the riding academy where Nighthawk received word that Scorpio was holding Jack for ransom, infuriating Valkyrie. Nighthawk was captured while Valkyrie and Hellcat slept.
(Defenders I#49) - Valkyrie and Hellcat received word from Clea that Moon Knight was waiting for them at Strange's mansion, hoping they could aid Nighthawk and Valkyrie. They met with Moon Knight, and worked to entice Hulk into joining them, having to make him angry to do so. They tried to flee in Moon Knight's helicopter, fighting off Hulk the whole and bringing him to Scorpio's base just as the robot Zodiac awoke.
(Defenders I#50) - Valkyrie, Hellcat, Moon Knight, Hulk, and the soon-freed Nighthawk got involved in a complicated melee with the Zodiac, who had varying responses and states of mind about Scorpio's plan, some of them meeting grisly fates that unhinged Scorpio's sanity further. In the end, the Zodiac was defeated and Scorpio committed suicide.
(Defenders I#51) - Hellcat saw a medic to recover from her injuries sustained during the Zodiac battle. At the academy, she had struggles with the coffee pot and was thrilled when Jack Norriss arrived. She flirted with him, and listened as he shared his frustrations over his relationship with Valkyrie.
(Defenders I#52) - Jack dropped Hellcat off at Nighthawk's office building and the two of them chatted before hearing about the Hulk and Sub-Mariner battling downtown. Hellcat found herself distracting the Hulk yet again. They learned that Sub-Mariner's kingdom was being harmed by radiation from Russia, and agreed to go and aid him in finding its source.
(Defenders I#53) - With Sub-Mariner, Hulk, and Nighthawk, Hellcat traveled to Atlantis where they met Vashti, had a feast, and planned how to aid Atlantis through the pending nuclear disaster. They boarded a ship toward Russia and, as they arrived, felt a nuclear explosion tear the ship apart around them.
(Defenders I#54) - Hellcat nearly drowned when she was pulled deeper under the water by the monstrous Behemoth from Below, but Sub-Mariner rescued her. Finally on land, the heroes were approached by the Presence and Red Guardian, crackling in radiation.
(Defenders I#55) - The heroes attacked and Hellcat dodged blasts from Red Guardian, though she tried reasoning with her, which eventually gave Red Guardian pause. Hulk battled the Behemoth from Below and Hellcat, using her mind powers to attach her claw-line to a nearby tree, narrowly avoided being squashed by the falling Behemoth, rescuing Red Guardian in the process. Presence obliterated the Behemoth, then departed after Red Guardian, in control of herself again, enticed him to. Hellcat and the others collapsed from radiation exposure.
(Defenders I#56) - Put into a decontamination tank, Hellcat came close to dying from radiation exposure until Hulk, as Bruce Banner, was able to rescue her. They were then released back to the states, despite complications with international border violations.
(Defenders I#57) - Nighthawk and Hellcat took time to relax, but when they returned to Nighthawk's penthouse, Ms. Marvel was there seeking the Defenders' aid. Nighthawk tracked a suspicious flying car back to the A.I.M. base and he, Ms. Marvel, and Hellcat fought against A.I.M., their creation the Warbot, and their agent, Arthur Shaman. They helped rescue Ms. Marvel's ally, Michael Barnett.
(Defenders I#59) - Hellcat played with a classic car at Nighthawk's academy, causing him discomfort. She then watched him train against the constructed Murder Machine. She aided him against it, but Hulk had to smash the machine to stop it. Nighthawk, Hellcat, and Hulk joined Valkyrie back at Strange's mansion to participate in a mission and met film student Dollar Bill.
(Defenders I#60) - The heroes prepared to depart for Mexico to track the Cult of the Harvester of Eyes, and Dollar Bill convinced the heroes to let him accompany them, promising to stay out of trouble. They flew to Mexico in Nighthawk's plane, though the Air Force, manipulated by the demon Baltazar, shot them down. Hellcat impetuously hitched a ride with Hulk and they fought a group of demons. Alongside Devil-Slayer, they battled the Agent of Fortune, and Hellcat appropriated his Shadow Cloak, which she discovered she could manipulate with her mind-powers. Hellcat found herself in a position to stop cult leader, Vera Gemini, and she wrapped Gemini in the cloak, teleporting her away.
(Defenders I#61) - Hellcat showed off her new Shadow Cloak, briefly accidentally pulling the Ort-Beast through it. The Defenders read of Lunatik's deadly rampage across Empire State University campus, and devised a plan, with the aid of Professor Harrison Turk and Dollar Bill, to trap the vigilante. Hellcat sped in Nighthawk's car on their way, taking advantage of her Avengers priority status since she didn't have a license. They built a statue of Spider-Man, who trapped Hellcat in his web to find out what was going on. When Lunatik attacked, the heroes fought him unsuccessfully as he escaped.
(Defenders I#62) - After the Defenders played Frisbee, Dollar Bill invited the heroes to view a TV special he'd put together about them, thrilling Hellcat. Bill invited any interested heroes to join the Defenders in the special. When over a dozen heroes showed up in response, Hellcat was thrilled and all the hunks and immediately started flirting with a few of them, causing Jack of Hearts and Captain Ultra to fight over her.
(Defenders I#63) - Iron Man delivered a letter to Hellcat and informed the team that several villains were terrorizing the city under the name Defenders, prompting the heroes to divide into three teams, Hellcat serving on Hercules' team with Black Goliath, Captain Ultra, Havok, Iron Fist, and White Tiger, and she drove the group to the city in her car. The team fought a strange grouping of villains (Batroc the Leaper, Beetle, Blob, Electro, Looter, Porcupine, Sagittarius, Whirlwind) until the police interceded and threatened to arrest the lot of them.
(Defenders I#64) - Hercules bailed the heroes out with his Avengers ID, leaving them to pursue the villains through Grand Central Station, even stopping, then pursuing a subway. They fought the villains again and Blob almost strangled Hellcat, causing her mental powers to lash out and knock out all the heroes and villains, destroying a piece of subway as well.
(Defenders I#65) - Hellcat opened the letter Iron Man had delivered and discovered an invitation from Millie the Model. Hellcat visited Millie the Model, who'd started her own agency, and the two caught up on old times, though Hellcat turned down a position with Millie, wanting to stick with life as a hero. Hellcat returned to the academy, finding Valkyrie missing.
(Defenders I#66) - Hellcat was plagued by nightmares of death and wondered where Valkyrie was.
(Defenders I#67) - While driving on a cliffside road, Hellcat crashed her car, killing her and Nighthawk. They were shocked when Valkyrie (secretly the maddened Barbara Norriss possessing Valkyrie's form) showed up to take them to Valhalla, where all the Asgardian heroic dead went to dwell. Alongside an army of humans, including the Hulk, Hellcat and Nighthawk were told by Ollerus the Unmerciful that Hela, Goddess of Death, had caused their deaths, and he vowed to lead them in battle against her.
(Defenders I#68) - Ollerus further convinced the Defenders to fight for him, giving them leadership of his army. After a time, the Defenders noticed two Valkyries in the sky and found themselves unsure of which one was the true one. After their Valkyrie boasted in an insane way, the Defenders realized she was Barbara Norriss and rushed to aid the real Valkyrie. They rallied with Hela's forces against the forces of Ollerus and, when the Hulk destroyed Ollerus's mountain, proved triumphant. Valkyrie agreed to return with them to Earth.
(Defenders I#69) - Hellcat and Nighthawk returned to life and checked out of the hospital.
(Defenders I#119 (fb)) - Hellcat bonded with Nighthawk and Valkyrie until Yandroth, in a woman's body, attacked them and gained mind control with a small brain implant. Soon, at Strange's mansion, the woman had control of Dr. Strange, Clea, Nighthawk, Valkyrie, Hellcat, Hulk, and Sub-Mariner, but the Defenders managed to break free and defeat Yandroth.
(Defenders I#69) - They were soon gathered by Dr. Strange to battle the menace of the Omegatron, who had possessed a veterinarian, who called himself Anything Man. He battled the Defenders successfully, even knocking out Hellcat, until Nighthawk convinced him to relinquish his powers.
(Defenders I#70) - The Defenders returned to the riding academy and Valkyrie invited Hellcat to attend a midnight mixer with her on E.S.U. campus. There they saw Dollar Bill, Prof. Turk, and Ledge, who claimed Turk was Lunatik. When Lunatik attacked, Hellcat pursued and defeated him. However, Nighthawk and Valkyrie soon returned with a defeated Lunatik each, and Turk claimed to be Lunatik as well.
(Defenders I#71) - The Defenders met with Dollar Bill, Turk, and Ledge, and the three captive Lunatiks and learned that the Lunatiks and Turk were each aspects of Arisen Tyrk, the deposed god of Other-Realm. The Defenders, with Clea, took the Tyrk aspects to Tunnelworld, where they battled the Nilffim riders. The Lunatiks escaped and kidnapped Hellcat, with Valkyrie in pursuit.
(Defenders I#72) - Valkyrie, with the aid of Dr. Strange and Hulk, rescued Hellcat, who learned that her mental powers had been sought by the Lunatik's leader, the Unnameable. They tracked the Unnameable, fighting a group of monsters on their way.
(Defenders I#73) - The heroes teamed up with Xhoohx, sorcerer supreme of Tunnelworld, and saw the Lunatiks recombined into Arisen Tyrk, who they fought and defeated before returning home.
(Defenders I#74) - Nighthawk announced he'd be leaving the team for a time, shocking Valkyrie and Hellcat. Hellcat soon stopped two kids from stealing a horse, with which they planned to scare Mrs. Cradshaw. While conferring with Clea and Hellcat, Valkyrie was interrupted by Dollar Bill and Ledge, who brought Foolkiller to the Defenders. Foolkiller soon attacked.
(Defenders I#75) - Foolkiller held Dollar Bill hostage while he explained his motivations, then turned his gun on Valkyrie before escaping. Hellcat fought against Foolkiller solo before running for it, realizing that the building was on fire. Valkyrie soon defeated Foolkiller, but the academy burned down. When reporter Fia Lundstrom tried interviewing Nighthawk, he announced that the Defenders were kaput and flew off. Richard Rory asked for aid from Valkyrie and Hellcat in finding Omega the Unknown.
(Defenders I#76) - Hellcat had Wasp take them in an Avengers Quinjet, along with Rory, Amber, and Ruth, and they heard about James-Michael Starling and Omega the Unknown. They went to pick up adolescents Dian and James-Michael and saw spaceships descending, leading them to battle armored aliens. Valkyrie and Wasp fought savagely while Hellcat called for help. Moondragon responded just before the aliens pulled back. The women and their allies burst into the house to find that James-Michael had switched places with the corpse of Omega.
(Defenders I#77) - Valkyrie, Hellcat, Wasp, and Moondragon tracked Starling to Las Vegas and found Ruby Thursday with her ally Dibbuk, and they fought until Wasp blew a hole in Ruby's computer head, leading Dibbuk to teleport her away. They found Starling, now powered, holding off the aliens, and he turned his powers on the women until he realized his friends were in danger. Moondragon helped him learn the truths of Omega's origins, after which she departed, taking away Hellcat's mental powers as well.
(Defenders I#78) - Hellcat, Valkyrie, and Wasp took Amber, Ruth, and Dian aboard a spare Quinjet, picked up by Yellowjacket, who quickly took them to Colorado to respond to a distress call on a military base. They battled the Mutant Force and the women warriors of the Mandrill. Most of the Force escaped, having captured Yellowjacket. Hellcat, Wasp, and Valkyrie were soon led into a trap.
(Defenders I#79) - The women fought the female warriors and the newly attacking Mutant Force. Hellcat was vanquished when Lifter sent her scurrying up a lamp post that Shocker zapped, then she was restrained by Slither. After being briefly held in restraints, Valkyrie burst free prepared to attack except the Mandrill entered and held all the women under his power, forcing them to admit they loved him, though Wasp escaped. He then put them on his army and had them attack the military base.
(Defenders I#80) - The females savagely fought the military, which had the Wasp on their team. Nighthawk soon attacked them and was able to free Valkyrie and Hellcat's minds by tossing them into an electrical field. Mandrill fled, and the heroes rescued Yellowjacket.
(Defenders I#81) - Valkyrie and Hellcat returned to Nighthawk's apartment with him, and Hellcat offered to help Valkyrie acclimate to life on Earth. Nighthawk was then arrested, shocking the heroines.
(Defenders I#83) - Hellcat and Valkyrie went shopping, becoming fast friends. They stopped men from robbing a bank, Hellcat realizing that her acrobatic powers were present even without her costume.
(Defenders I#84) - Valkyrie and Hellcat united with Clea, and they decided to form their own Defenders, inviting Dr. Strange to join them.
(Defenders I#85) - The women tracked a lead on the Mandrill, and loosely connected him to the Wakandan government. Hellcat traveled to the Wakandan consulate and was accosted by a suspicious government agent. She jumped away and accidentally burst through the consulate window, meeting Black Panther, who agreed to accompany her back to Strange's mansion. While they reviewed plans, Sub-Mariner and the Hulk arrived, though Sub-Mariner quickly left after he and Black Panther almost came to blows. The team traveled to Frenchtown, New Jersey, and fought the Mandrill's women warriors. Black Panther and Hellcat became trapped on a rigged plane, and escaped in just the nick of time, due to aid from Dr. Strange. Black Panther stated he was in Hellcat's debt. Mandrill recognized the Defenders as formidable foes.
(Defenders I#86) - Hellcat and Black Panther went undercover, searching for leads to smuggled Wakandan technology. They approached Nighthawk, who was with his lawyer Milton Rosenblum, and asked for Richmond Enterprises' aid in tracking some silencing equipment. They honed in on a particular item, the Arranger, which could silence all sound, tracking it all over the city and stopping to rescue tenants from a burning building. They finally found it in a riotous mob, including Valkyrie and Hulk, and over-loaded the Arranger, destroying it.
(Defenders I#87 (fb)) - Valkyrie and Hellcat, who were currently living in Nighthawk's penthouse, returned to the burned down riding academy. They noticed they were being watched and pursued a fleeing limousine; when they tried to stop it, they were knocked out by agents of the Tribunal. They returned home, then moved to find Hulk, who was in trouble with the authorities. They found him at Giants' Stadium and rescued him from an attack by the Mutant Force and the Air Force.
(Defenders I#88) - While their air-car was being fixed, Hellcat flirted with Nighthawk's employee, Grimsby. When Hellcat and Valkyrie tracked Hulk, they found him aboard the ship of the "Whaling Captain" and Vassily, who Valkyrie was suspicious of. Hulk sank the ship, also destroying the air-car.

Hellcat watched as the Earth demons gathered to fight Dormammu, fighting off a few of the demons herself. When Hell-Lord Satannish was revealed to be allied to Dormammu, Hellcat intuited that Daimon was also Dormammu's son, indirectly, and this gave her courage to fight. She took a gem that would help her set Dormammu's captive, Mephisto, free.

Brunnhilde departed, and Valkyrie decided to join the Defenders, though the primary Defenders still did not agree that there was a real team.
(Black Panther III#35) - Hellcat attacked alongside the Defenders Mephisto (actually Everett K. Ross trapped in Mephisto's body. Actually it wasn't Mephisto orignally, but Black Dragon. Complicated, but a great read!), who just rang at the Sanctum Sanctorum's door. During the fight she was seemingly knocked out when Mephisto tossed Hulk into her. Mephisto was still defeated, but later when the Defenders were knocked out by Everett K. Ross (Black Dragon in Ross' body), Hellcat wasn't present.
(Defenders II#5) - Nighthawk, Hellcat, and Valkyrie watched Strange's efforts to interpret the source of the curse, and viewed a taunting image of Yandroth appear before Strange, who dismissed his allies. The three of them changed and went out on the town, where they ate at a pizza place and Hellcat stated that she didn't want to lose her demonic powers. They soon rushed off in a maddening cab ride to reach a museum where the Headmen were attacking. Hellcat dodged blasts from Chondu the Mystic, then grabbed an idol the Headmen had been trying to steal, her mystic senses overcome by the power of the idol. Soon, the Headmen were all defeated, but they managed to teleport away with the idol anyway. They tried reporting to Dr. Strange, but the curse whisked him away.
(Defenders II#6) - Nighthawk, Hellcat, and Valkyrie pursued the Defenders to Sky-Island, where they were conferring with Red Raven. Hulk, in anger, knocked out Dr. Strange then attacked Bi-Beast, but Valkyrie calmed Hulk down. While Strange got medical care, Nighthawk explained to Sub-Mariner why the Defenders meant so much to him. Soon Red Raven's daughter, Dania, appeared and alerted the Defenders to the Bloodraven Cult, who the Defenders subdued, but not in time to stop their mystic bomb from exploding.
(Defenders II#7) - After fighting off the Bloodraven Cult and helping repel the madness-inspiring Wayfinder (whose entrance into the world was blocked when Sky-Island itself plugged the dimensional portal), the Defenders agreed to aid Namor in liberating Atlantis, though Hulk had to be coerced by Nighthawk. Strange transported them there and granted them the ability to breathe underwater. At Atlantis' gates waited Attuma's Deep Six (Attuma, Nagala, Orka, Piranha, Sea Urchin, Tiger Shark) and the Atlantean military, which Hellcat sparred with. The Defenders vanished due to the curse, however, and Nighthawk, Valkyrie, and Hellcat followed, to see Helleyes already defeated.
(Thunderbolts I#57-58) - Along with many other heroes from Earth Hellcat was trapped in the sky by Graviton. She was lowered back to Earth when Graviton was weakened by his fight with the Thunderbolts.
(Defenders II#8) - Nighthawk, Valkyrie, and Hellcat reported in to Strange that the Headmen had taken over the world.
(Defenders II#9) - Hellcat and Valkyrie moved into their own apartment, funded from a royalty check of Patsy's. Nighthawk came to visit and the three of them went on a walk through Greenwich Village, where Hellcat and Nighthawk discussed her old comic book line just before a group of autograph seekers, including Allen and Joanna, asked her for autographs, but one of them was an AIM agent who tried to kill Hellcat. She immediately changed into her costume and attacked the agent. A group of agents then attacked she, Nighthawk, and Valkyrie, before a tractor beam pulled them onto an AIM ship to face MODOK. MODOK revealed that all who who touched the idol the Headmen had been after had been killed except for the three heroes. After escaping from AIM, the heroes tried attacking Orrgo, a large monster in control of the Headmen, but the world was already conquered in Orrgo's power.
(Defenders II#9/Defenders II#8) - Hellcat, Valkyrie, and Nighthawk contacted Strange, who was off-planet, to let him know what had happened.
(Defenders II#10) - The other four Defenders returned to Earth and all seven battled dozens of super-villains summoned by Orrgo. Hellcat, Nighthawk, and Valkyrie snuck inside and stole the control idol from the Headmen and Hellcat convinced Orrgo to leave Earth.
(Defenders II#11) - The Defenders swam to Atlantis, granted the ability to breathe underwater by Dr. Strange, to fight Attuma's Deep Six (Attuma, Nagala, Orka, Piranha, Sea Urchin, Tiger Shark). Hellcat shrugged off Nagala's spells until the sea-witch trapped her in a mystic bubble. Strange saved her, however, and the Defenders defeated the rest of Attuma's military, then joined the Atlanteans in celebration. Hellcat talked to Valkyrie, who'd remembered her true identity, about contacting her parents.
(Captain America III#50/5) - Alongside several super heroes, Hellcat attended the funeral of Captain America (who later turned out to be alive).
(Defenders II#12/2) - While the four cursed Defenders continued to grow more distant and angry, the full Defenders team took on Chronarch and his dinosaurs; during the battle, Hellcat convinced Hulk to defeat Chronarch. Hellcat and Valkyrie went shopping in preparation for meeting the Parringtons.
(Captain America III#50/6) - Hellcat along with the rest of the Defenders attended the funeral of Captain America (he was just presumed dead at the time).
(Order I#1) - While visiting the Parringtons, Reginald and Malicia, Patsy was alarmed at how staunch they were, even as the butler Springthorpe served them. Papa Hagg arrived, alerting them that Nighthawk had been stranded in the Himalayas by the other Defenders, who were now calling themselves the Order. Hagg retrieved Nighthawk, and they nursed him back to health. They tried tracking down the Order, and watched as they defeated the Atlantic Fleet of the United States Navy. Strange simply teleported Hellcat, Valkyrie, and Nighthawk away.
(Order I#2) - Back at the Parringtons, Hellcat and Nighthawk playfully trained before the Parringtons showed them the small headquarters they'd built for the Defenders, disgusting Hellcat. Papa Hagg appeared again, on elephant back, and sent Hellcat, Nighthawk, and Valkyrie into an astral plane to decipher what was wrong with the Order. They saw the good sides of their companions in shackles, while the bad sides brutally attacked them. Hellcat avoided several blows, then was shocked by Strange. Though defeated, Hagg brought the three allies back and told them he had a plan to stop the Order. Then Bunnhopper, the new headquarters computer avatar, gave them more news of the Order's actions.
(Order I#3) - Hagg gathered Hellcat, Nighthawk, and Valkyrie, and sent them to recruit others to their side. Hellcat was teleported to Avengers Mansion, where she convinced She-Hulk (who'd been training with Triathlon) to come with her. With the others and new ally Namorita, they were teleported by Hagg to the Dark Dimension and recruited Clea, promising to help her with her rebellion there when the Order was taken care of. Back with Hagg, they were informed that a female counterpart to the Silver Surfer was now needed.
(Order I#4) - Back with the Parringtons, the super heroes were informed by Hagg of the plan, and they agreed. They teleported to the Order's headquarters on Sky-Island and stole mystic energy form the Silver Surfer that Hagg and Clea turned into Ardina. The Order attacked and Silver Surfer threw Ardina into Hellcat, breaking a few of her ribs. Strange teleported Hellcat and her allies to a hostile dimension.
(Order I#5) - Nighthawk, Valkyrie, Hellcat, Namorita, She-Hulk, Ardina, and Clea landed on the planet Yann, where they repelled a snail and bat predator and saved two children from a volcanic upheaval. Scientist Supreme Christopher Ganyrog and Romantic Objective Pamela appeared and healed Nighthawk and Hellcat's injuries with an indigo ray. Hellcat deciphered that Yandroth had been behind the Order's recent instabilities, and Ganyrog confirmed that if the Order continued with violent acts, Yann would be destroyed and Yandroth would be reborn with godlike power. He informed the allies that the Order must be stopped with no violence.
(Order I#6) - The allies arrived back on Earth, where they found the Order battling dozens of heroes. Nighthawk, Hellcat, and Valkyrie pleaded to the heroes' leaders, Captain America, Professor X, and others, to stop battling and hear them out. The heroes didn't believe them, however, so Nighthawk summoned Ganyrog and his armed Masters of the Mental Arts. Yandroth, starting to reform, shot down Papa Hagg, and the Order's female counterparts grew able to pass some of the humanity back to the Order, who refused to fight Yandroth anymore. Yandroth faded back into human form and was arrested by Ganyrog and returned to Yann. The Defenders were thanked by Gaea, then returned to the Parringtons. Nighthawk was granted the ability by Gaea to summon the Defenders, through his ring, if needed in the future.

(Marvel Comics Presents II#1/2) - Hellcat returned to her new apartment in Chinatown, getting caught up in a string of Chinese lanterns as she entered through the window. She tried on several outfits before picking a little black dress so that she could go meet her blind date, Bill, at Yum's Chinese restaurant. While looking for shoes, she found her old diary, which Gargoyle had placed the enchantment on, and opened it up. The spell had been gestating for years and hit her with mystic energy, causing her to split into five facets of her personality, unknowingly. She left for her date and was picked up in a cab by a cab driver Patsy, while Hellcat Patsy arrived in the apartment.
(Marvel Comics Presents II#2/2) - The Hellcat Patsy answered the phone and heard Bill on the other line asking where she was, but he stated she'd just arrived. As Bill sat to eat at Yum's with a blue-dressed Patsy, Hellcat Patsy sniffed out the diary and decided to investigate. Cab driver Patsy got the main Patsy there, where she met Bill (after bantering with the restaurant attendant). Bill and Patsy were both confused when blue dress Patsy came out of the bathroom and cab driver Patsy came in. As the three Patsys argued, Bill came across another Patsy dressed in a masquerade dress, which disgusted the others.
(Marvel Comics Presents II#3/4) - The four Patsys got into a violent argument that tore apart much of the restaurant, and they each had varying degrees of memory. Isaac Christians (Gargoyle in his human form) came out and introduced himself as the owner of the restaurant and explained that he might have something that would help them. As the Patsys started to realize what was going on, Christians retrieved the diary key that would reverse the spell, but it fell in the soup when Hellcat Patsy burst in.
(Marvel Comics Presents II#4/2) - The restaurant worker entered with the soup and Hellcat Patsy came in with the diary. As the Patsys argued, blue dress Patsy helped herself to a bowl of soup and ended up swallowing and then coughing up the key. Christians explained what had happened with the spell and, after the Patsys fought a bit more, the main Patsy placed the key back in the diary. All her doubles returned to her and she was normal again. Bill returned to pick Patsy up and they left on their date together.
(Avengers: The Initiative#10) - When the deadly KIA went on a slaughtering rampage through Camp Hammond, Hellcat, wielding a gun, and others tried to stop him, but he easily defeated the heroes assembled, killing more than one.

(Avengers: The Initiative#15) - 3-D Man panicked and made a hasty retreat. When he attributed it to traveling through Devil-Slayer's Shadow-Cloak, Hellcat said she understood how disorienting that could be.
(Patsy Walker: Hellcat#1) - While her neighbor, designer student Ruben, tried on new clothing for Patsy, she took a call from Iron Man, who assigned her as the sole Initiative representative in Alaska. Soon, she was flying over the state and scouting things out, but her mystic senses honed in on the town of North Spirit, and she had her pilot land there. She was treated with hostility in the local bar until she offered a man a large sum of money to drive her around, which he did after she knocked out a handsy old drunk in the bar. Two antlered polar bears soon chased down their snowmobile and strangely ripped the skin off one, then fell with the other off a ledge and into the maw of a giant sea monster named Bessie.
(Patsy Walker: Hellcat#2) - After passing through Bessie's tentacles and into a mystic whirlpool, Hellcat relied on her mystic senses in a confrontation with a group of seven ancient crones, including Aua, Kees, and Ko. They granted her the new name of "Double Clawed Cat Full of Red Hell Fire With Her Head Against the Wind and Comes Not Quietly From the Great Sea Road" and subjected her to a mystic test, during which she grabbed a raven. She accepted the quest to find the crones' missing daughter, who had reportedly been taken by a Windigo, and they showed her the mystic path. They gave Hellcat instructions to find seven friends during her journey as she got dressed. She met her guide from before, Silas, who gave her a vehicle to drive, and the crones showed her an eerie sentient calendar stone that would aid her on her journey. When the calendar stone yelled at her, she tried to shut it up and ended up wrecking the car just as a giant wolf named Manslayer arrived.
(Patsy Walker: Hellcat#3) - Again relying on her mystic senses, Hellcat had the wolf speak her new mystic name, making it loyal to her. The wolf helped her free the car, but she soon crashed it again, then curled up to sleep for a time. In the morning, several water lemmings were thrown at her and she caught one. As it escaped, she chased it into the trees and found herself in a spot where a mystic illusion of her recommended she go back for the antlered polar bear as another companion. She convinced the calendar stone to show her a mystic route to a frozen vehicle with a man inside, showing her what would happen unless she apologized to the antlered bear. The bear appeared and she did so, then provoked he and the wolf to battle while she buried the man's corpse in a hole. They all loaded up in her car and soon found a frozen ship.
(Patsy Walker: Hellcat#4) - While gauging the threat of the yeti on the ship, Hellcat and Man-Slayer rounded up hundreds of white rabbits that carried her car over a chasm to the ship. The yeti threw trees at them, causing them to nearly crash, and Hellcat reluctantly attacked the yeti when she couldn't convince him to surrender the crones' daughter. Hellcat awakened the daughter and soon realized she was there willingly, in a romantic relationship with the yeti, Pete. Hellcat tried reasoning with the girl, who explained that the crones were only trying to force her to come home. She had a long and aggravating conversation with the girl, learning her name was Ssangyong Rexton and that the calendar stone was her father. When Ssangyong popped her car tire, Hellcat knocked her out. She then convinced Pete to attach one of his trees to the car and light a fuse to get them back across the chasm. They piled into the car, which weighed too much and got stuck on the canyon wall.
(Patsy Walker: Hellcat#5) - As they struggled to keep the car from falling, the antlered bear and Manslayer plummeted into the chasm. She convinced Pete to use his magic and transform the calendar stone back to his true form, then she saved him from falling with her claw cables. Just before they fell again, they convinced Ssangyong to use her powers and return them all to the crones. Ssangyong threw a fit and released a torrent of birds and Bessie, but Hellcat had Pete use his mystic abilities to absorb all the magic creatures, leaving him bloated. She finally helped them keep the peace and hugged Ssangyong goodbye, though Ssangyong's father accompanied Hellcat. She checked in with Iron Man as her adventure finished.

Hellcat later stood by while Hank Pym and Jocasta left Camp Hammond, not wanting anything to do with it.
(Avengers: The Initiative#21) - Hellcat helped Gauntlet realize he was in charge now. She prepared to return to Alaska. Soon, a clone of Thor called Ragnarok attacked the base and Hellcat rushed to aid civilians while Gauntlet and Thor Girl battled him.

She struck up an active friendship with fellow heroines Monica Rambeau, Angelica Jones (Firestar), and Felicia Hardy (Black Cat) when they all met at a speed-dating panel. They began hanging out regularly, getting pedicures, swimming, seeing movies, visiting art museums, and fighting Skrulls together. Patsy briefly ran into Daimon at a bookstore.
(Marvel Divas#1) - Patsy finished her book and her agent, Lola, set up a party on the top of the Baxter Building to celebrate. Monica and Felicia showed up, but they grew bored when Invisible Woman, Storm, She-Hulk, and Emma Frost arrived and stole the show.

As Patsy told them about seeing Daimon, Angelica came in and announced she had cancer.
(Marvel Divas#2) - Despite Monica's protestations, Patsy, with Angelica's approval, wrote about Angel's experiences with cancer. Angel visited the Night Nurse and Dr. Strange. After hearing about Monica's relationship problems with Dr. Voodoo, Patsy grew frustrated with Strange's inability to cure Angel, but Angel was referred to Henry Pym. To cheer Angel up, Patsy went shopping with her, but Daimon appeared while she was typing up notes at Sak's. He flirted shamelessly with her, the offered to cure Angel if Patsy offered up her soul. Patsy was called into the dressing room by Monica, and the two of them comforted Angel.
(Marvel Divas#3) - Patsy went with Angelica to Hank Pym for a medical workup, then, on doctor's orders, accompanied her to the Savage Land where she could burn off as much radiation as possible while fighting dinosaurs. She stood by her when she began radiation treatments under the supervision of the Night Nurse. The foursome continued hanging out, but staying home more often as Angelica generally didn't feel well. As Angelica's hair started falling out, she had Patsy introduce her to wig specialist Dusty Ross, but Angelica decided to shave her head instead. Patsy was thrilled when Drs. Pym and Hill decided Angelica was ready for surgery. During the procedure, Patsy chose to sit and wait for Angelica while Felicia and Monica headed out on dates. While Patsy worked on her laptop at Angelica's bedside, Daimon appeared again, offering her a cure for Angelica if Patsy spent one night in Hell with him, and Patsy reluctantly agreed.
(Marvel Divas#4) - Patsy found herself in a cage fight with Daimon, surrounded by cheering demons. He taunted her, wanting his conjugal rights as a husband reinstated, and was willing to keep her there for as long as it took. After Daimon dressed Patsy in an evening gown and tied her to a chair, he revealed that he came after her because of her most recent book, sharing that he was furious that he was barely mentioned in it. Just then, Monica, Felicia, and Angelica shockingly showed up and freed Patsy. Patsy promised Daimon that if he let her go, she'd write two chapters in the paperback revisions of Cat Outta Hell about him, and he sent them back, returning Angelica's cancer to her. The next day, Patsy waited while Angelica got the prognosis that her cancer was in remission, and she hugged her friend tightly. They got together with fine wine to celebrate later, and Patsy said she may call her new book Super-Vixens.
(New Avengers#59) - After learning Luke Cage was sick and had been apprehended by Norman Osborn, Hellcat and Valkyrie showed up along with Thing, Dr. Voodoo, Misty Knight, Daredevil, and Dr. Strange to help him, called there by his wife Jessica Jones.

They were soon beset by a psychic barrage and an attacking alien dragon, which Valkyrie promptly stabbed to death. A group of cloned scientists, dinosaurs, and other monstrosities attacked the city, and Brand explained they were from a SWORD base. Hellcat punched Einstein as they rushed into battle.
(Heralds#2) - At a local diner, Hellcat served Valkyrie (Samantha Parrington), Monica, Emma, and She-Hulk food (Valkyrie had a stein) and they watched news footage of their battle. After hearing of a fiery car crash connected to their battle, and they decided to investigate. At the local morgue, Emma did a reading on the corpse that led them to investigate the accident site (after flying on the X-Men's ship). There, they found the wounded body of Frances Hyatt, and they returned her to the Fantastic Four, fearing she may be a clone of Nova (Frankie Raye).
(Heralds#3) - As Frances lay in a healing stasis, the women argued about being there, and about who Frances might be. Hellcat briefly grew frustrated with Valkyrie for not sharing the memories of her predecessor. The Fantastic Four investigated Frances' connection to Nova as Nova seemingly attacked, putting them and young Valeria Richards in danger.
(Heralds#4) - After they chased away Nova, the heroes debated angrily about Frances and her connection to Nova, struggling to piece things together. They took Frances back to the old apartment of Frankie Raye, and met her old roommate Julie Angel, when Nova attacked again, kidnapping Valeria.

(X-Men: To Serve and Protect#4/2) - Dressed up at Brian's, Patsy was talking to Emma on the phone when Gambit came in. He groaned at it being her, saying her reputation preceded her. She had difficulty pronouncing his name as they bantered, and she soon showed him the Mermaid, which was purported to grant three wishes, to impress him. He grew annoyed with her flightiness as the Mermaid made them hate each other. Patsy switched to her costume when the Mermaid was freed, and inadvertently wished inanely that Gambit would stop complaining and that he could hear himself. She soon subdued the Mermaid and they decided to continue their date elsewhere. She grabbed Gambit's arm, convincing him that he'd had a great time with her so far and into taking her out the next week.

Comments: Created by (in modern age) Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and Vince Colletta.
This profile is meant to represent Patsy Walker/Hellcat's appearances post-Fantastic Four era. The earlier comics are meant to be "fictional" representations of Patsy Walker's upbringing. The other characters of her past have been loosely woven in scattered appearances as has Centerville itself. This profile tried to cover those scattered appearances as best as possible and make sense of them. If you have ideas on how to better make it cohesive, let us know!
Hellcat received entries in the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Women of Marvel (2005), Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe I#5 (1985) and Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Deluxe Edition#5 (as Patsy Walker Hellstrom). It is unknown whether Barry and the other kids belonging to Joshua and Bea Walker are Hellcat's step- or half-siblings. Special thanks to AvatarWarlord72 for help with four issues I was missing and to Markus Raymond, who few other small appearances I had missed!
the Modern Era Patsy also appeared in Punisher meets Archie#1 (See Earth-Crossover)
and as Hellcat in a one page Hembeck story in Marvel Age#115.
The placement of the Marvel Comics Presents II flashback is questionable. I chose to place it directly after Patsy started focusing on writing her book, while she was still teammates with Gargoyle, after Defenders I#118.
Thanks to Per Degaton for pointing out the panel between panels flashback in Marvel Comics Presents I#53.
