Golden Age Origin Edit

Katie Conn was a twelve-year-old girl whose parents were killed in a train wreck After this accident, her unscrupulous uncle took her in and forced her to steal on his behalf. When David Merrywether, Cat-Man, learned of her situation, he put her uncle behind bars and adopted her himself. Katie was already a trained acrobat, and she was grateful enough to want to help. However, Cat-Man was reluctant to let her tag along until she proved herself in the fight. She became Cat-Man's sidekick, Kitten.

Later, she met Mickey Matthews, sidekick of the Deacon, at a summer camp. They fought crime and Nazi spies until they parted ways. When she and David moved to Center City, she and Mickey met again. Together, they formed the Little Leaders and fought crime both in and out of costume.

Like Mickey, Katie aged visibly over the course of Cat-Man Comics' run, growing from a pre-teen girl to a teenager.
