She has also been trained to pilot a S.H.I.E.L.D. jet-powered sky-cycle.

History:

(Avengers United They Stand#3 (fb) - BTS) - As the Avengers roster changed over the years, the animalistic Tigra joined and participated in many missions. She stayed in Avengers Mansion (with its attendant Jarvis).

(Avengers United They Stand#1) - Tigra engaged in a training exercise alongside Hawkeye, Black Panther and Wasp at Avengers Mansion's training room. The activation of Henry Pym's latest experiment, Ultron, caused chaos. While the Avengers investigated, Ultron deliberately overrode the training drones' failsafes and the drones attacked, leaving Tigra battered and trapped under rubble. She remained in Avengers infirmary with others while Ant-Man, Hawkeye, Wasp and Wonder Man chased down and stopped the malevolent Ultron.

(Avengers United They Stand#2) - Along with the rest of the Avengers, Tigra was briefed by Nick Fury onboard the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier about Baron Wolfgang von Strucker's HYDRA plot to kill all humans save one HYDRA base using a specialized doomsday rocket. Ant-Man was concerned about Tigra's destructive feral nature when she trained alone on the Helicarrier. Later, secretly arriving at the HYDRA island, they met new ally Black Widow, but were soon fighting HYDRA troops. After the Ragnarocket's launch, she slashed at Baron Strucker's hidden exoskeleton, exposing his frail body. The other Avengers were shocked at her vicious fury but she reiterated the Avengers pledge to never kill.

(Avengers United They Stand#3) - The Avengers discussed Vision's status as a new Avenger. They reminisced over the life of the apparently dead Wonder Man (whose memories and brain engrams had been downloaded into the Vision) and how Wonder Man had progressed from villain to Avenger (and B-grade movie star). Although they laughed at the quality of his movies, Tigra revealed he secretly channeled his earnings to repaying debts from past misdeeds by himself and his brother.

(Avengers United They Stand#4) - Tigra joined the other Avengers on a mission to stop the villainous Black Knight from selling the destructive Ultimate Amplifier to the Latverian despot, Dr. Doom, with Tigra clawing her way onto the Black Knight's flying car, but they were all captured by Doom's robot sentries after crossing the closed borders. Doom's power-neutralizing collars also inhibited Tigra's abilities and the Avengers were locked in the castle dungeons. However, they and the Black Knight managed to escape Latveria.

(Avengers United They Stand#5) - Tigra was one of several Avengers who doubted the loyalty of Black Widow and thought Hawkeye's romantic feelings for her may have clouded his judgment over her recent distress call. However, she did not challenge him assembling a small team to infiltrate an A.I.M. base in a rescue bid.

(Avengers United They Stand#6) - Tigra was captured alongside other Avengers at Avengers Mansion, as well as over a thousand other humans internationally, by the obsessive extraterrestrial Collector using his teleportation orbs and transported to his spaceship into individual cells, where in his giant flesh form he informed them he was saving them from an impending extinction event. She saw Vision's solar blast hurt the Collector but the giant rapidly recovered. Disease-cleansing gas knocked them out before they were released into a jungle zone. The Avengers split into two teams; Tigra stayed with Ant-Man's group and waited to see if they could reopen the doors to gain access to the rest of the ship. Tigra sensed impending danger just before the guardian Moon Boy attacked astride Devil Dinosaur accompanied by raptors.

(Avengers United They Stand#7) - Ant-Man's team overcame the dinosaurs using their respective powers. Following Vision's observations, Scarlet Witch recognized Koko as the sign language-trained gorilla, who then helped communicate with Moon Boy to aid the Avengers' escape through the doors. Back in the cell-lined corridor, Tigra smashed through the cell that held Hawkeye's bow kit and Captain America's shield, just as they again encountered the Collector. Determined to be free, the Avengers unleashed a combined attack, unexpectedly disintegrating the Collector's flesh form, but he generated a new body from the ship's floor. Concerned at their destructive nature, the Collector offered the captive humans the choice to return to Earth; only a few chose to accompany the Avengers home in a separate spaceship.
