Felicia Hardy was born in Queens,NY. She was an excellent gymnast and was always trying to impress her mother. Felicia's father, Walter, was never home. She thought he was away on business. In reality Walter was a cat burglar. Felicia in the meantime started to study the martial arts after she was almost mugged. She also discovered she had a talent in lockpicking. Felicia eventually learned what her father's real occupation and wanted to be just like him. She created her alter ego: The Black Cat.
After she learned that he was dying of cancer and did not want to die alone, she hired to crooks in an attempt to break Walter out of jail. It was at this time she first met Spider-Man. They fought and after the fight she lifted his mask up partially and kissed him. Felicia was able to escape and break Walter out of jail. She brought him home and revealed her identity to him. However, Walter tried to persuade her to give up her life of crime. Spider-Man had followed the Black Cat home and they got into another fight. Felicia slipped and fell off the roof. Spider-Man tried to grab her, but was unable to hold on. Spidey left thinking she was dead. Walter died that very night.
Felicia had no powers to begin with. She staged accidents so that her opponents would think she was creating bad luck. Felicia began to idolize Spider-Man and ended her life of crime. She was granted amnesty for her crimes and became Spider-Man's partner. However, Peter was constantly worried about her because she had no powers. While he was away in the Secret Wars, she received super powers from an unknown benefactor. She later learned that the Kingpin of Crime was responsible. She eventually revealed her "bad luck" powers to Spider-Man. However, her powers started to effect Spider-Man (which was Fisk's plan all along).
Felicia and Peter eventually broke up. Part of the reason was Felicia wasn't attracted to Peter Parker. She didn't understand why he wanted to be ordinary when he could be Spider-Man all the time. Felicia was able to have her powers removed by Dr. Strange, and left NY. She returned to New York and learned Peter was married. She then started to date Flash Thompson to make Peter jealous. However, she fell in love with him and was devastated when he broke up with her. Felicia and Peter are now friends. She is even best friends with Mary Jane. Felicia now runs the Cat's Eye Detective Agency, and still has adventures as the Black Cat.
