Wow! Here is artist Wally Wood's character design sketch for the then-new and groundbreaking super-heroine, THE CAT! Wally drew this around 1972, for the debut issue of Marvel's female feline fury, and reportedly even drew her nude (hence the carefully-placed white-out and touch-ups on the art)! Notice that Wood came up with a new design that didn't lean too much on previous cat-characters such as Catwoman, or various jungle queens! The Cat was one of many attempts by Marvel to bring forth a captivating she-hero such as later attempts like Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, Spider-Woman, and others! Altho the Cat didn't fare well, she was to hang around the sidelines, in typical Marvel fashion, later to return as the tiger-striped Tigra, the were-woman! Marvel never wasted an interesting character then! FUN FACT: This series had tons of girl power behind it, with Linda Fite providing the script, and Marie Severin on interior art duties!
