History: David Merryweather's early life was scarred by the death of his father at the hands of his mother's lover. Extradited to a Florida court in order to face trial, his father's murderer walked free on a technicality, leading David to blame the corruption of money and politics for the miscarriage of justice. In response, the young man sought training and vengeance, eventually tracking down his father's murderer in Mexico. There he was forced to decide between becoming like the murderer, or become someone better.
Powers & Weapons: Catman's high-tech stealthsuit gives him many catlike abilities: night vision, enhanced strength and speed, and greater than human agility and leaping ability. He is also an above average detective and spy, a superb athlete, and a highly trained hand-to-hand fighter. His stealthsuit is equipped with retractable claws, which can slash through most substances, and they enable him to scale most buildings and walls.
