History: The only child of a poor family, Ted's parents
wanted better things for him. Unfortunately, their death while
he was in his first year of medical school brought that dream
to an abrupt halt. Quitting school, Ted turned to boxing to pay
off his father's debts. His natural talent quickly took him to
the top, and he won the heavyweight boxing title in early 1941.
His career was very nearly cut short when unscrupulous fight managers
rigged a fight, and his opponet and one-time trainer was killed.
Escaping from police custody before the trial, he set out to clear
his name. Inspired by the Golden Age Green Lantern, he donned
a mask and costume to track down the killers who had framed him.
Dubbed a Wildcat by the felons, he kept the name and costume,
continuing to fight crime while continuing his boxing career.
Wildcat shared only a few cases with the JSA during the 1940's,
but has been a mainstay of every incarnation of the team since
A recent encounter with a fountain of youth has left Ted Grant
with the body of a much younger man. He is taking advantage of
this gift to once more seek the medical degree that he abandoned
several decades ago.
Powers/Weapons: Wildcat's greatest weapon is his devestating
right cross. An undefeated heavyweight champion who has kept up
his fighting skills, Wildcat is one of the most formidable hand-to-hand
combatants who ever lived.
Wildcat's continued health and vitality was a mystery for many
years. he discovered that the mineral water that he had been drinking
for years, from the childhood home of his one-time manager Stretch
Skinner, contained a combination of otherworldly elements that
apparently enhanced his body's healing processes and retarded
the aging process. An explosion of the water source saturated
his body with these elements, reversing the aging process entirely
and leaving this octegenarian with the body of a twenty-something
In his war on crime, Wildcat uses few weapons. Primarly a fast
motorcycle, and a lifetime of experience and connections.
