Powers and Abilities
The “Cat” is a highly advanced robot. It can take most supergroups single-handedly and win.
Galactus’ worldship, Taa II, is vast. In fact, it is so impossibly huge that it needs specialized maintenance and defense system.
Galactus’ Cat is one of these. It is mostly intended to chase off vermin that has boarded Taa II. Such as super-heroes, avengers from races destroyed by Galactus, pirate hordes, interstellar armies, etc.. Galactus might also sic it at something annoying him.
During the first Secret Wars, Galactus sent the “cat” down to deal with several heroes trying to prevent him from devouring Battle World. It attacked and sent the Hulk flying, grabbed She-Hulk in its hand, and paralyzed at least four other heroes.
A big, shiny, aggressive-looking robot that has nothing feline about it. It is a stubby humanoid with three toes (including an opposable) on its hands and feet.
It wears a nice, menacing full helm.
The Cat is just a robot. It doesn’t speak.
DC Universe History
Well, you always need an ultra-powerful guardian robot from an impossibly advanced civilization, right ? Galactus’ “Cat” fits the bill nicely. Just fill off the serial number and watch the PCs Team Attack like there’s no tomorrow.
For instance, it could have been created by the Controllers. They seem to like cat people.
