Thanks, Isaac. :-D Well, here's another one Catfan1 and I did together. This one is also for the "Golden Age Krypto" universe:
Name: Streaky (aka Supercat [GAK-verse version])
Species: Tabby cat
Home Universe: GAK
Abilities: Up until 1942, Streaky only possessed all the standard well-conditioned feline abilities relative to his size and age plus good detective, paw-to-paw combat and lock-picking skills, terrific street smarts (and, yet, decent social graces when he needed them too), a natural knack for story telling and above-average resourcefulness. In fact, he continues to make it a point to keep his detective skills, street smarts, resourcefulness and paw-to-paw combat skills sharp even today, more than 60 years after he gained super-powers (particularly his detective skills, which are now second only to those of his universe's Ace the Bat Hound).
But in 1942, Streaky developed powers similiar to those of Krypto and Superman had at that time, but at a, relatively speaking, SLIGHTLY higher level; meaning that his strength, endurance, speed, agility and senses had been heighted to 27, 000 times peak feline for his size, he had developed the ability to fly at a top speed of 27, 000 miles per hour, he had X-ray vision that could only be blocked by lead and magic and his aging speed was now half that of a normal human.
In addition, ALSO like Krypto and Superman, Streaky's powers gradually increased over the decades, so that, he now ages at one-eighth of the speed of a normal human being, he possesses heat vision and super-breath proportionately equal in power to Krypto or Superman's own, he still has his X-ray vision and, in proportion to his size, the remainder of his power is still slightly superior to that of his universe's Krypto or Superman; just enough to make his strength, endurance, speed, agility and senses presently 7, 339, 040, 224 times peak feline by the standards of a middle-aged cat his size (since 7, 339, 040, 224 is equal to 94 multipled by the fifth power) and give him a top flying speed of 7, 339, 040, 224 miles per hour. However, he DOES also have the same vulnerabilities that Krypto and Superman do as well; INCLUDING Kryptonite and red sun light.
Personality: Streaky, like a fair number of private eye types, is street-wise and a bit of a smart-alec, but he also has a pretty good heart and is fiercely loyal to his friends. In addition, He has a major soft spot for kittens and human children and can be pretty courteous when he pours on the charm. His biggest vices are, 1. as aforementioned, he IS a wise-acre and can rarely pass up a chance to make a joke (even when he SHOULD; though, since this has the added effect of annoying the bad guys off their game, it actually works in his favor just as often as not and he DOES know how to take matters seriously when he needs to, even if it doesn't SOUND LIKE he is), 2. His tendency to be over-focused on his cases, 3. He has a hard time admitting when he's wrong about somebody or something (he usually ISN'T, but it's still a problem when he IS) and 4. He DOES have something of a cream addiction.
Also, unlike some other private detectives, Streaky is NOT a womanizer. In fact, he was actually pretty faithful to Ginger throughout their entire courtship (they started dating in 1940) and marriage (Streaky and Ginger were married in 1943) and is a still grieving widower (Ginger died of natural causes in 1956; thirteen human years after she and Streaky married). Even today, knowing he is going to long outlive almost any potential love interests, Streaky tries to steer clear of women entirely as much as possible (at least as anything more than friends). He isn't, however, adverse to playing matchmaker for good friends that he thinks would be a good match for each other (such as when he did so for Prince Tomaz and Princess back in 1962)
Physical Description: Looks almost exactly like the standard Kryptoverse Streaky except for looking enough older for it to be noticeable while still being rather physically fit for a somewhat middle-aged cat his size. He also wears a light grey, feline-sized fedora and matching collar with two attached pouches (one holding lock picks, the other fingerprint powder).
Background: The pet cat of Andrea Sussman (now Andrea Sussman-Whitney) and her immediate family, Streaky always liked to wander the streets whenever he got the chance, even when he was extremely young. In fact, it was this wandering tendency that gave him the street smarts needed to help to police track down a crook back in 1938 after said crook had just robbed his owners (about the same time Superman and Superdog made their debuts). Discovering that he LIKED this type of detective work, the feline ended up getting the notion to operate as a private eye cat.
At first, Streaky usually charged five tins of tuna a day, plus expenses (though, when the case involved kittens or human children in trouble, he always took the case for free). In exchange for this fee, he would tackle any animal-related or human child-related case that came his way. He quickly became notorious for not letting go until the job's done. It's this combination of sheer determination and the skills he learned that has earned him a lot of respect among fellow Metropolis animals; especially those in need of a good detective.
Along the way, on his bigger cases, Streaky has made the acquaintances of Krypto and Ace and had developed a healthy respect and pretty good working relationship with the two super-hero canines (in fact, Krypto, in particular, ended up becoming one of the feline sleuth's closest friends), but, for the most part, he has primarily dealt with local street animals.
He was also a pretty faithful boyfriend (and, later, husband) to his kittenhood friend Ginger, spending as much time with her as possible when he wasn't on a case.
However, in 1942, Streaky was easily captured by Ignatius (the mad scientist iguana had both the element of surprise and a couple of henchmutants helping him), who wanted to use one of Krypto's friends for an empowerment/brainwashing experiment of his.using genetic material lifted off Krypto from one of the Dog of Steel's tougher battles. While Ignatius has his mind control device operating in Streaky's face, the lizard injected the feline with the sample of Krypto's genetic material and gave Streaky a massive jolt of solar radiation (the iguana, at least, managed to figure out that PART of Superman and Superdog's power is derived from the sun by then, even if it would be another seven human years before the FULL truth about the alien origins of the Man and Dog of Steel was finally uncovered).
Ignatius, you see, was reasoning that Superdog would be a lot more likely to hold back greatly in battle against a friend the super-dog KNEW was not responsible for his actions than against an empowered enemy (which would be a decided advantage... even more so if he were able to give the brain-washed subject slightly GREATER power than the heroes the iguana was targetting).
The mad scientist lizard's experiments, indeed, managed to give Streaky all of the same powers as Superdog at a SLIGHTLY higher relative level (since the solar radiation he was bombarded with ended up being a large enough dose to be equal to a 30 year jumpstat), but the iguana FAILED to brainwash the cat (it seems Iggy greatly underestimated the strength of the cat's mental will, meaning that the cat was able to hold out until help arrived [which was reasonably quickly as Streaky had the foresight to plant clues as he was captured]).
Still, thanks to the mad scientist iguana, Streaky DID now have a respectable array of abilities to help him in his work. Thus, Streaky not only continued his private eye work (though the media now started calling him "Supercat" due to the fact that he now had the same powers as Superman and Superdog), he even started taking bigger cases than before; some cases of national and even INTERNATIONAL importance (even if, as he was still a private eye at heart, he preferred to focus on relatively simple mysteries and crimes within the city limits).
Among his friends, aside from Krypto and Ace (as well as, to a lesser extent, the All-Star Canine Patrol), are his owner Andrea (who found out about his detective side-line pretty early in his private eye career [in fact, she was the one who made Streaky the feline sized fedora he wears as well as the packets on his collar for fingerprint powder and lock-picking equipment] and continues to provide Streaky with a loving home, even today, when Andrea is in her late-70s, has been married for 45 years and has a couple of grandchildren in their mid-teens), Andrea's husband Kevin and a group of orphaned street kittens he met in the early 1940s (about a year-and-a-half before he got his super-powers, in fact), who call themselves the Milk Bottle Brigade (they manage to keep, not only alive, but also extremely vital; even in the present day; thanks to semi-regular rejuvenation treatments [they stole the secret from Luthor and Ignatius's files]). Very streetwise, tough and with above average combat skills, they have proved valuable allies on several cases. Streaky eventually became their guardian and protector. He credits the Brigade members with inspiring him to become a better detective and a better cat. Despite their tough exterior and tendency to make sharp-tongued wisecracks, these kittens; particularly the unofficial leader Squeaky; greatly admire Streaky and look up to him as a role model. Even as adults, some of them continue to assist him on major cases.
Still, Streaky has ALSO made a fair number of enemies over the course of all of his years in the private eye business. In addition to the considerable number of street gang leaders and other petty crooks the feline's helped put away (most of them are long-dead now anyway) and a good number of the members of Superdog's rogues' gallery, he has also aroused the wrath of a mutated South American jungle cat turned international crime boss named Count Jagwire (who has become the now-super-powered detective cat's arch-nemesis) as well as the powerful feline sorceress known as Countess Astorina AND the somehow semi-immortal feline femme fatale known only as "Deliah".
