Who's Who: Catspaw

by Siskoid

Real Name: April Dumaka
Super-Power(s): Enhanced agility, speed, and senses (including night vision); retractable claws; animal-like instincts.
Planet of Origin: Earth
Legion Seniority: Catspaw was (alphabetically) the SW6 Legion's first new recruit.

Legion Log 
One of the Dominators' experiments on humans during their secret occupation of Earth, Catspaw got feline powers and a sexual aggressiveness in the deal. After the Dominion's defeat, she was freed by Danielle Foccart (Computo II) and joined the SW6 Legion. She remained with the team until Zero Hour wiped out the timeline.

After the Reboot, Catspaw was seen as one of Leland McCauley's candidates for his rival team, Workforce.

There is no record of Catspaw in later versions of Legion continuity, except as a Legionnaire from the original collapsed timeline in Final Crisis: Legion of 3 Worlds and as part of the SW6 Legion who fought the Action Heroes of Earth-4 during Convergence.
