Supercat

Cats Are Evil Week 5

One way to counter my charge -- pfft, I mean "statement of the obvious" -- that cats are evil would be list the superheroic cats of the DCU.

Um.

Er.

Oh, yeah!

Streaky!
Before you ask, no, Streaky couldn't talk. As a Literary Necessity, Saturn Girl used to loan the Super-Pets the power of telepathic speech so they wouldn't just stare at one other, occasionally snorting, which makes for a boring story (but a pretty hot date).

Streaky seemed to spend most of his time in the 30th century, I guess because having an easily identifiable birthmark would make him a threat to Supergirl's secret identity. You can't see it hear, but when Streaky supered up ihe would wear a cape, which he put on by ... hey, how does a cat put on cape?

Anyway, Streaky did many wonderful things with his powers. Like...

Um.

Er.

Oh, yeah!


Beat the snot out of the Legion!

Yeah, Supergirl; "command" your cat. That'll help.

Remember, folks: cats are evil.

But really, I have to believe that any legionnaires Streaky attacks had it coming. Maybe Brainiac 5 is in telepathic contact with him (her)? after all, he and Supergirl used to be .... close.

What kind of hairballs do you think a Kryptonian cat would cough up?

WHIZZY is the 30th century decendant of Streaky and yes, WHIZZY is the amazing mutant telepath kitty who can mentally talk with people. Whizzy and Streaky do look a lot alike,though.
Even Supergirl gets them confused!
But hey, if you're the kind of person that would name ANY pet "Whizzy" or "Streaky"--
you KNOW you're askin' for trouble.

My cat is Whizzy. That's why we have to keep extra paper towels on hand.

I think Streaky's problem was that he was just jealous because Supergirl used to date her other super-pet...
