Give a big welcome to Joshua Walters, another new Superhero of the Month contributer with a new outlook on Felicia Hardy!
"One of the reasons I think Black Cat's costume has remained so much the same throughout her existence is because, at its most basic, her design is extremely simple. She's the ultimate femme fatale: beautiful, playful, provocative, and dangerous, which during her creation was epitomized in a deep-v'd jumpsuit. I wanted to update her sexiness, but didn't want to change what I think are the most striking elements of her design -- all that hair. When drawn in motion the hair on her gloves and boots emphasizes that movement, and when static gives the panel some movement, so these I exaggerated. The only other thing I added were some claws on her boots -- I've always been bothered by characters having to use their hand claws to climb walls, but for whatever reason their feet need no such help."
