Biography Edit

Felicia Hardy was the daughter of a notorious cat burglar named Walter Hardy, who was friends with Adrian Toomes. After a robbery at Oscorp Technologies, Walter was killed by a crazed Norman Osborn, who had undergone a dosage of an experimental serum, and as a result, had gone insane. He strangled Walter to death, and reclaimed the equipment that Walter had stolen. Toomes had arrived to talk to Norman, only to find Walter's body. Saddened by the death of his friend, Adrian formally resigned from Oscorp, and gained legal custody of little Felicia.


  • Felicia Hardy was originally supposed to appear in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 4 and be played by Anne Hathaway, though she would not have transformed into the Black Cat, as in the comics. Instead, Raimi's Felicia was expected to become a new super-powered figure called the Vulturess.[1]
  • However, in 2013 Raimi stated that Anne Hathaway would have played Black Cat if Spider-Man 4 had been made.[2]
  • Incidentally, she ends up playing a different cat-themed villainess, Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises.
