Names: Climate Kitty (aka Nikki), Air Strike (aka Ramone), Polaris Puss (aka Puff) and Battleship (aka Bo) aka the Ultra-Cats (the version of the group from the Squeaky and Blaze as Power Cat and Fire Hound timeline)
Species: Cats (all four)
Climate Kitty has the abilities to shoot powerful fireballs from her front paws and powerful freeze-beams from her eyes plus she possesses an immunity to temperature extremes AND the power to completely control the weather within her immediate area. She also has a super-genius intellect, the ability to accurately sense incoming danger up to ten seconds in advance (but not what SPECIFIC KIND of danger) and a high enough level of leadership skill where she is the unquestioned leader of the Ultra-Cats when Power Cat and Fire Hound themselves aren't around.
Air Strike can fly at hypersonic speeds (top speed: 9600 miles per hour) and possesses highly accelerated reflexes and thought processes (his reflexes and thought processes are 9600 times faster than peak feline), the ability to shoot powerful whirlwind blasts from his front paws, the power of invisibility and laser vision (powerful enough to melt or cut through solid steel up to twelve feet thick). He is also highly skilled in various forms of unarmed combat, skills he learned from Ace the Bat Hound long before Air Strike got his powers.
Polaris Puss possesses the ability to weaken or strengthen gravity around any two areas within his line of sight at a time up to 500 fold for up to a half-hour at a time as well as the ability to absorb massive amounts of electricity into his own body and manipulate the absorbed electricity for a variety of effects (such as power zaps, personal strength increases [up to 500fold], flight, force fields and limited range control over electrically powered machines. Of course, he can't use his gravity-manipulating powers at the same time as his electricity absorbing/redirecting powers (since the gravity-manipulating powers by themselves require a lot of concentration). Also, when he's carrying an electrical charge, he has three further major weakneesses; 1. a definite water weakness 2. the fact that his electrical powers have little to no effect on any material that's naturally resistant to electricity (plastic, rubber, glass or wood, for example) and 3. the more elaborate the uses of his electrical powers, the more concentration the uses require and the quicker he uses up his charge.
Battleship possesses 4000 times greater than peak feline strength, a hide as tough as four feet of solid steel and the ability to morph his front paws into artillery cannons capable of firing menally-generated 250-millimeter shells at a rapid rate depending on how long he can maintain his concentration, but using the last power also greatly increases his vulnerability to magnetism while it is in use.
Background: These four kittenhood friends of Squeaky and Blaze were once merely ordinary cats who co-chaired the Superdog/Supercat/Power Cat/Fire Hound fan club until one fateful day when they were bearing witness to part of a tremendous battle pitting Squeaky (aka Power Cat) and Blaze (aka Fire Hound) against a 60-foot robot powered by an only recently discovered radioactive material of immense power (I say only "part of a tremendous battle" because Squeaky and Blaze were trying very hard to lead the battle away from populated areas). Eventually, the heroes managed to defeat the giant robot in an area well away from innocent bystanders, but not before the robot unleashed a massive energy beam that Squeaky and Blaze were only narrowly able to dodge. The beam shot out into space and bounced off the reflective panels of some satellites before the beam ended up nailing the four fan club co-chairs before Squeaky and Blaze were able to do anything about it. Frantically checking on their childhood friends, the two super-animals descovered that Nikki, Ramone, Puff and Bo now all had super-powers of their own as a freak result of the beam. Indeed, these were powers Squeaky and Blaze felt they had to teach their friends how to use responsibly just as Krypto and Streaky did for THEM when they were first starting out. On one of their first missions, the team ended up in battle against a familiar opponent, Snooky Wookums (a secret source of information for Squeaky, as he still felt enough of a bond with the fan club members to occasionally help them) who was conflicted that the cats he considered his friends were now a potential threat to his boss. Snooky was not willing to publicly defy Mechanikat and ended up facing off against his old friends, leading to very mixed feelings on both sides. Snooky also had a major crush on Nikki and was disappointed that Climate Kitty refused to leave her friends and join him in working for Mechanikat. However, it's those same feelings for Nikki, combined with the knowledge that Squeaky and company treated him far better than Mechanikat ever did that convinced him to give somewhat less than his all during the fight and continue leak out information to the heroes when one of Mechanikat's schemes poses a clear threat to the Earth even after the fight.
Climate Kitty is a warm and caring cat who is a touch flirtatious with her teammates (but she never takes it beyond flirting with any of them and this is usually just to playfully annoy Snooky, who she still has feelings for even though she's too embarrassed to openly admit it), but is still a natural leader who knows how to be serious in an emergency.
Air Strike has a bit of a tough guy attitude and something of a temper sometimes, but he DOES have a very good heart and a tremendous sense of responsibility.
Polaris Puss can occasionally come off as a bit of a show-off and is even a touch on the cocky and womanizing side when there isn't an emergency, but he is definitely a quick-thinking, highly resourceful hero who can definitely be counted on to come through in a tough spot and a fiecely loyal friend and teammate to Power Cat, Fire Hound and the other members of the Ultra Cats.
Battleship is always eager for some action and gets a touch paranoid whenever things get too quiet for too long, but he does have a geniune interest in helping out those in trouble, a major soft spot for orphaned kittens and puppies and a very strong sense of loyalty to his teammates (especially Nikki, whom he seems to have a slight crush on, much to Snooky's annoyance).
Nikki as an adult is a well-conditioned looking female cat with fur that is mostly grey with patches of black. As Climate Kitty, she wears an ice blue full-face mask, a golden yellow cape with a crimson lining and a medium green collar with a silver tag on it. The tag has a flame red "C". and an ice blue "K" infringed on it.
Ramone as an adult is a mostly dark brown furred male cat with black stripes. As Air Strike, he wears a sky blue domino mask with a matching collar. The collar has a white tornado-shaped tag on it.
Puff as an adult is an all white male cat. As Polaris Puss, he wears a royal purple helmet with a white visor, an electric blue cape and a bright silver collar. The collar has a golden yellow tag with one royal purple "P" infringed on one side, one electric blue "P" infringed on the other side and a bright silver lightning bolt infringed in the middle.
Bo is a mostly yellow furred male cat with white fur on his paws and belly fur. As Battleship, he wears a black full-face mask, a battleship grey cape with a black lining and a battleship grey collar. The collar has a black battleship-shaped tag on it.
Amount of time in the future: Three-and-a-half human years.
