Shadow Cat, played by Canadian actress Treena Lahey.

BIO:

Real Name: Katherine Pryde

Code Name: Shadowcat

Former Aliases: Ariel, Sprite

Age: 18 years old (debateable)

Height: 5'6"

Weight: 110 lbs.

Eye Colour: Hazel

Hair Colour: Brown

Legal Status: Citizen of the United States with no criminal record

Place of Birth: Deerfield, Illinois

Known Relatives: Carmen (father, divorced), Theresa ("Terri", mother, divorced), Samuel Prydeman (grandfather, deceased), Chava Rosanoff (great-aunt, deceased)

Strength level: Shadowcat possesses the normal human strength of a girl of her age, height, and build who engages in moderate regular exercise.

Known superhuman powers: Shadowcat possesses the ability to pass through solid matter by passing her atoms through the spaces between the atoms of the object through which she is moving. In this way she and the object through which she is passing can temporarily merge without interacting, and each is unharmed when Shadowcat has finished passing through the object. This process is called "phasing." When Shadowcat is phasing, she is, for all intents ad purposes, intangible. Hence, when attacked, she can shift into a "phasing" state (even if she is not at the time passing through an object) so as to allow oncoming projectiles or energy blasts to pass through her harmlessly. While phasing Shadowcat is still vulnerable to psionic or mystical attack, however.

Shadowcat passes through objects at the same rate of speed at which she is moving before she "enters" it. Since she is unable to breathe while "inside" an object, she can only continuously phase through solid objects (as when she travels underground) as long as she can hold her breath.

Shadowcat can phase through any material object, even living people. When she phases through an object with an electrical system, the process disrupts the system's workings. She has trained herself to go automatically, by reflex, into a phasing state at any indication of danger, such as a loud noise like a gunshot, in order to protect herself.

Using her phasing ability, Shadowcat can walk on air. In fact, she can use her ability to walk on the air from the ground to the upper stories of a building as if she were climbing a staircase.

From the first use of her phasing power, Shadowcat has been able to phase her clothing along with herself. Through practice she has learned to phase other objects along with herself without harm to them, and can now phase a living person as big as her teammate Colossus along with herself. She can also enable someone as big as Colossus to "walk on air" along with her. However, she must maintain physical contact with the person or object she phases along herself for the effect to work with this other person or object.

Special skills: Shadowcat possesses moderate expertise of the martial arts of the Japanese ninja and samurai. Shadowcat is a genius in computer science. She has continued to take dance training under the tutelage of Stevie Hunter, and is highly agile. Shadowcat demonstrated great knowledge of ninja methods of combat when she was mentally possessed by the Ronon Ogun. With the possession over, Shadowcat has forgotten the knowledge of ninja techniques he gave her, but she has retained the knowledge of Oriental methods of combat taught her by Wolverine.

Base of operations: (current) Muir Island off the coast of Scotland, (former) Exalibur's lighthouse off the coast of Britain, Professor Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, Salem Center, Westchester County, New York; Moira MacTaggert's Mutant Research Center, Muir Island, Scotland

Group affiliation: (current)new X-Men ,(formerly) Excalibur, (formerly) X-Men, S.H.I.E.L.D.

First appearance: X-MEN (first series) #129

History: Katherine "Kitty" Pryde was a thirteen-and-a-half year old girl living in Deerfield, Illinois who led a normal life but then began suffering headaches of steadily increasing frequency, duration, and intensity. Unknown to her or her parents, the headaches were a result of her mutant power emerging.

Meanwhile, Professor Charles Xavier, founder of the X-Men, a team of mutant adventurers whom he trained in the use of their superhuman powers, located Kitty with his device for finding superhuman mutants, Cerebro. He and three of the X-Men, Colossus, Storm, and Wolverine, set out for Deerfield to contact her and possibly recruit her as a member of the X-Men. Unknown to Xavier, the mercenary Warhawk had planted a device that enabled his employers in the Inner Circle of the Hellfire Club to monitor Cerebro's activities. The Inner Circle thus also learned about Kitty Pryde, and one of its leaders, Emma Frost, the White Queen, also went to contact her.

Xavier trained superhuman mutants at his so-called School for Gifted Youngsters, whereas Frost was headmistress of the Massachusetts Academy, where she also secretly trained young superhuman mutants such as the Hellions in the use of their powers. Hence, Xavier and Frost would each approach Pryde and her parents as the heads of private schools seeking to recruit her as a talented student. Neither Xavier nor Frost intended to reveal to Kitty's parents that their daughter was a mutant.

Kitty herself was unaware that she was mutant or that she had a superhuman power until the afternoon that Frost arrived to speak to her parents. While Frost was downstairs, Kitty went to her room upstairs, suffering her worst headache ever. Lying on her bed, she closed her eyes, wishing the headache would stop. It did. Kitty opened her eyes, and, to her surprise, found herself lying on the floor of her living room. Without knowing it, Kitty had used her "phasing" power for the first time, and had passed through her bed and the floor into the room below.

As Frost left, Xavier and his three X-Men arrived. The three X-Men took Kitty to a local malt shop, where Kitty and Storm began what evolved into a close friendship. Suddenly three Hellfire Club mercenaries burst into the shop and attacked the X-Men. Surprised and frightened, Kitty moved out of the way and found herself passing through the wall. Landing outside, she fell unconscious since she was still not used to utilizing her power. The White Queen used her telepathic powers to overcome the three X-Men, whom the Hellfire Club took into their hovercraft.

But the brave Kitty had decided to snoop around the hovercraft before it took off, and discovered the X-Men were aboard as prisoners. Unwilling to desert her new friend Storm or the others, she hid aboard the craft and used her new powers to find the captive X-Men in the Frost Industries complex to which the White Queen had taken them. Storm gave Kitty the X-Men's phone number and asked her to summon help. But one of the Hellfire Club mercenaries spotted Pryde, and the White Queen ordered her capture. Using her powers, Pryde got away long enough to phone the number.

Two Hellfire Club mercenaries in a car were just about to capture Pryde in Chicago when they were halted by the Jean Grey version of Phoenix, who had just arrived with her fellow X-Men Cyclops and Nightcrawler in response to Kitty's message. Phoenix found and comforted the frightened Kitty, who told her story to her and her X-Men colleagues. Pryde then helped the X-Men and their ally, the Dazzler, in rescuing their captive colleagues.

Phoenix used her mental powers to calm Carmen Pryde's rage over his daughter's disappearance. Mr. and Mrs. Pryde allowed Kitty to join Xavier's school, and soon afterwards she became the newest member of the X-Men. She originally took the code name Sprite, but later changed it to Ariel. Kitty quickly became a valuable member of the X-Men, so much so that Xavier retained her in the X-Men even after founding a new team, the New Mutants, most of whose members were closer to Kitty in age than the other X-Men were.

Kitty's friendship with Storm has continued, but her best friend was Illyana Rasputin, the New Mutant called Magik. Kitty was deeply affected by Illyana's recent death from the Legacy Virus. Kitty had a romance with her fellow X-Man Colossus, and although it proved to be short-lived, they remain friends today. Kitty's constant companion is the small, alien, dragon-like creature Lockheed, whom she met when the X-Men were on another planet.

Over time Kitty also grew close to the X-Man Wolverine, who became a mentor to her. While in Japan, Kitty was captured and put under the mental control of Ogun, the martial arts master who had once been Wolverine's teacher but had since become his enemy. Wolverine undertook a crash program to teach Kitty to become skillful enough in the Japanese martial arts to contend against Ogun. At the end of her training Kitty assumed the new code name Shadowcat, which she still uses today.

During the massacre of the mutant Morlocks by the Marauders, the Marauder called Harpoon injured Shadowcat with his energy spear. It also adversely affected her powers so that she could no longer regain her solidity. She was cured by the combined efforts of Doctor Doom and the Fantastic Four's Mister Fantastic.

Subsequently, Shadowcat became a founding member of the new British-based team of adventurers Excalibur. She eventually became romantically involved with her teammate Peter Wisdom.

Recently, G. W. Bridge, the acting commander of the international law enforcement agency S.H.I.E.L.D., recruited Kitty Pryde to become a temporary S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. Bridge explained that the computer system of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s flying headquarters, the helicarrier, was failing to recognize any user but her. Pryde soon learned that this was because the spirit of the late Ogun had taken control of the S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier's computer system. Pryde succeeded in defeating Ogun and, with Wolverine's aid, S.H.I.E.L.D. regained control of the helicarrier computers.

Shadowcat returned to Excalibur, where she has continued to be a valued member of the team.

Shadowcat has now returned to the X-Men with Excalibur team-mates Nightcrawler and Colossus.

Kitty Pryde was never meant to be a glamorous character. She's just a kid.True. In fact, she was a secondary character so it makes sense.

I nearly forgot to add that she's actually already appeared on the first X-Men I & II (I believe) movie as Sprite. remember that little girl that 'phased' through her bed when the X-Men school was under attack?

The picture of "shadow cat" in the first post is not the real shadow cat. That is a character named Felicia from a playstation game that I have called Darkstalkers.

Also.. This edgy model.. Omahyra Mota will be starring in the movie also. She will be playing some character named Stacey X.

For those of you who don't know, Omahyra looks like this:

They used to show this Darkstalkers toon in the states years ago, and I couldn't for the life of me remember the toon name. THANK YOU! :worship:

And here's a return of favor:
Stacy X: She was a mutant that controlled pheromones
Which could possibly mean the introduction of the Legacy Virus and death of Colossus. :sad:

Ya, I think I remember Stacy X, or at least hearing of her. But I really wonder how they will portray her in the movie. Right off the bat, her character looks like someone who could be a villian, but, I thought I read that she helped/joined the xmen.

Storm should play a pretty big role in this movie cos that would be the only way to get Halle back on.:rolleyes:

I heard that halle took a hissy fit and didn't want to spend months in vancouver filming the movie, so her part is actually rather small in this one.


that's stupid. She is an actress, it's her job to live in another city while the filming is going on. And Vancouver has been voted number 1 city in the world.
But that's statistics. I was there and I can agree with that.
So what the hell is her problem.

here is the article that i heard the stuff from

Cast Unlikely to Return: (6/1/03) The cast member from the first two movies most likely to not return for the third movie is Halle Berry (Ororo Munroe, AKA Storm), due to her rising profile as an A-list star, and the script difficulties of keeping Storm's role in each of these ensemble movies large enough to do her status justice. There are rumors that Fox may someday develop a 'Storm' movie for her to star in, however. (11/18/03) According to USA Today, Halle Berry is still considering returning for this third film. According to her costar Shawn Ashmore (via X-Men Hype!), besides budgetary concerns, the biggest requirement for Berry to return might be for her hours to be shortened, and her role lengthened. Although that sounds contrary, what he *means* is that she doesn't want to have to stay in Vancouver for six months during the entire shoot like most other cast members have to. (3/24/05) "Variety" reports that Halle Berry is indeed in talks to return, though reports about the script suggest Storm's role may be small. There have been recent rumors that James Marsden might not return as Cyclops, but it appears he probably will. (8/2/05) Alan Cumming will not be returning as Nightcrawler according to his official site.

Why would she waste her time with the movie unless she has a bigger role. She could possibly be doing a starring role instead of having to stay the same amount of time as the other cast members except with a smaller role.

i assume when she signed on to do X1 she didn't think it was going to be a one shot deal. This movie series can go on for years and years, and she must have full well known that, to demand that certain conditions be meet for her to apear in the 3rd movie just becoz her celeb has been bumped up is very divaish.

Well, if I were an A-List celeb, I wouldn't want to play some half assed side role in the movie. Especially since in the other two films, her character hasn't really had the chance to develop that it deserves. It wouldn't make sense to keep wasting time on the project when your character continues to be same boring character you have always played.

I also read that they were thinking of giving Storm her own spin off also. Which, I really wouldn't be too sad with. Just as long as they don't ruin the movie like the Catwoman spinoff.

http://www.comicbookmovie.com/news/articles/1777.asp

The story surrounding Nightcrawler was always my favorite, so you can imagine how excited I was when he opened X-MEN 2 kicking much azzzzz. :lol: But then the writers shut him down and made him into a sniveling little religious punk after William Stryker used his son's mind control fluid on him. But what they never made clear is that Nightcrawler was a devout Roman Catholic and studied to become a priest; which is pretty clever considering he's half demon. But enough about that. :lol:

Nightcrawler Info:
http://www.comingsoon.net/news.php?id=10081
Apparently, FOX decided to drop the Nightcrawler. I personally don't see this as a wise move since the possibility of mother and son fighting would have made for great cinema. Oh well, at least they didn't cut Mystique's character. That would have been cinema suicide.

But they split because her powers were such that if her skin made contact with his, she'd always render him unconscious. And that's no fun when you're getting hot and heavy. :tape: :lol: Even her kisses were deadly.

http://www.efavata.com/CBM/Xmen3.htm

And Nightcrawler, as I understand the back story, is the product of a very rich Bavarian aristocrat human man that Mystique married. Mystique was very fond of prestige and opulence and would often marry these sorts of men. This was the only time that Mystique had ever allowed herself to concieve of a child though (supposedly out of the love). However, when she gave birth to a demon child, she was run out of town. She shape-shifted as one of the villigers, and threw her baby over a waterfall. He survived and was raised by a gypsy sorceress named Margali Szardos, who raise him in a traveling circus.

TRIVIA: I bet few here knew that back in the 1930's Mystique shapeshifted into a detective named D. Raven. :lol: She's been so many different people, not even she remembers her true form.

sorry i dont know as much. i was only really into x-men when it was a cartoon on fox a while ago, i dont remember everything because i was only 8 or 9 back then.No prob. If you want to know more, feel free to ask. :wavey:

lol!can u imagine if theyh went with tthe original story for jean? we'd have mutant overload with the shiar empire coming to earth!Ahh...Yeeeeassh...
The Shi'ar Empire...
An alien humanoid race that have both bird and mammal characteristics.
Where we have hair, they possess feathers. :lol: Seems to me, that could be quite uncomfortable. ;)
And I would LOVE to see Corsair, Hepzibah, Ch'od, Raza (Starjammers Pirates). :bounce:
And let's not forget the beautiful silvery Lilandra, Majestrix of the Shi'ar. :drool: And could you possibly imagine Deathbird and Lilandra (sisters) sharing the same stage. Deathbird can lift up to 6 TONS! :eek:

But alas, Hollywood could never truly tell that story. It's far too complex for them and has too back stories. :sad:

You haven't figured out by now that we have a connection my love. :hearts: :kiss:
Figured that out after our first exchange, love. :lol: :hug:

II was far better than I. I was a bit disappointed in I, but was happy that they got the ball rolling and set things up for the sequel (II). III should be off the freaking hook!! :bounce:

I hope it is. Sometimes you can get your hopes up too high about a sequel. Maybe that's why we enjoyed II because our hopes weren't too high. LOL

Actually, as the original story goes, Jean Grey never died. In fact, in this movie she never died either. She's going through a metamorphosis (evolving into the next level of mutant: The Phoenix). X-Men II completely changed the original Jean Grey story so that it would fit with their story line. The original story line is quite a bit more complex, but if you're interested, I could attempt to summarize it for ya. :)

Please summarize it for me, because I always thought her powers so boring and so like a watered down version of "Capt. Piquard's" powers.

Another mutant who has boring powers IMO is Storm. :rolleyes:

As far as I know, Nightcrawler's character made his (real life) debut in X-Men II. Unfortunately, they toned his part down in comparison to the original story line. :fiery: But he's still badass! :worship:

Can you post a picture of him from II, because I don't remember him.

The Shi'ar (a.k.a.: Aerie) are an extraterrestrial race and rulers of a galaxy wide empire. As I posted above, they have physical characteristics in common with both birds and mammals, and are therefore humanoid in appearance, yet have feathers instead of hair. And as you'd guess, their offspring hatched, not born live. The Shi'ar Empire (a.k.a.: Imperium) is one of three huge galactic empires in the known universe. The others belong to militaristic, humanoid Kree, and the shape shifting, reptilian Skrulls, each of whom is the dominant power in their own galaxy. The planet Earth is of strategic importance to these three rival empires, because it lies at a crossroads for star ship travel between their respective galaxies.
The Shi'ar are an expansionist culture, and upon discovering new worlds, they marry into them. In fact, Charles Xavier is the consort to Lilandra Neramani , Majestrix, who I will describe in short later in this post. And yeah! He was hitting that but good! :lol: ;)

Now with all of that stated, here is where the complicated story begins ...(in now particular order :lol: )

The Shi'ar are an extremely powerful, and aggressive race, with a very unstable ruling hierarchy. As one story goes, the madman Emperor D'Ken, was the ruler of the Shi'ar Empire, until his once deposed and rebellious sister, Lilandra succeeded him as ruler. Emperor D'ken's mad and power hungry ambition was his own undoing when he attempted to harness the energies of the M'Krann crystal, and nearly destroyed the universe in the process. In fact, it was the Fiery Phoenix (Jean grey) who prevented this destruction.

D'Ken Neramani and his younger sister, Lilandra, also have an older, albeit exiled sister named Deathbird. Being the eldest, she was by right heir to the Shi'ar throne, but was, as I mentioned, exiled for regicide. Interestingly enough, Deathbird is a evolutionary 'mutant' throwback in that she has a full set of wings. However, the girl is strong as hell, and can lift as much as six tons.

I'm trying to keep this short, but it's tough, so I will conclude by bulleting the next pieces of info:

* The Imperial Guard:
This is a legion of extremely powerful champions who protect and defend the shi'ar Empire.
The members are drawn from the Shi'ar race and other races governed by the Shi'ar. To date, I've counted up to twenty champion members, including the leader, The Gladiator. Just picture superman dressed in red and black with a tall Mohawk. :lol:
The duty of the Imperial guard is to serve the monarchy and protect the monarch, no matter It may be. And yes, they are blindly loyal.

* The Starjammers:
Interstellar pirates originally comprised of five members:
Corsair (human leader): actual name is Christopher Summers; while piloting his private plane carrying his wife and two sons, he was attacked by the Shi'ar. The two sons parachuted to safety, but the he and his wife were teleported aboard the Shi'ar starship and taken back to the Shi'ar throneworld where his wife suffered attempted rape and killed before his eyes. He was then sentenced to the mines of planet Alsibar, where he saved a catlike alien (Hepzibah), with the help of two others (Ch'od & Raza), from being beaten to death by guards, and escaped to form The starjammers.

Hepzibah
A Mephitisoid, a member of a race conquered by the Shi'ar.
Ch'od
A Saurid, a reptilian baing of incredible strength
Raza
A Shi'ar cyborg and master swordsman.
Sikorsky
A member of an insect-like Chr'ylite race, and ship physician.

Later, they were joined by Binary, a female human named Carol Danvers, who wields cosmic powers.

Here ( http://www.marveldirectory.com/individuals/l/lilandra.htm ) is a very good, albeit, incomplete history surrounding Lilandra and the connection with the X-Men. Since there are stories within stories within stories, this is the best that I could do because of the complexity of the many stories involved.

Another mutant who has boring powers IMO is Storm :rolleyes: .In actuallity, Storm's power are pretty incredible. I recall an episode where Storm turned evil, and no one...not even the combined force of the full X-MEN team... could stop her. :eek:

jean's powers only seem boring because we cant see her powers. but it's exactly the same as prue halliwell from charmed only with telepathy involved. plus, she's about 10 times more powerful. i think it's her character/personality that u find boring!which, imo, is the case for me. jean is boring as hell!i so wouldn;t be friends with her!

I totally agree with your assessment. Jean brought a little more to her character in II, maybe because they let her do some extraordinary things. But, her personality is totally a bore. I also agree about Storm, they could do so much more with her powers than causing the wind to blow and changing the color of her eyes. She should be able to throw lightening bolts and make it hot and cold etc. and Halle brings nothing to the character or they don't write anything for her to do or say.

P.S.
Thanks Ree :hug: but for all that hard work you did, I'm more confused than ever. What does all that have to do with Jean and her powers. She doesn't have feathers for hair.

She doesn't have feathers for hair.Sorry Denise, for I didn't fully answer the question. :o It was late and my youngest son has the Chicken Pox, so my mind was being pulled in several directions.

The short version of the original story Jean Grey/Phoenix goes something like this:
Following a space battle, Jean was piloting a space shuttle transporting the X-Men back to earth when she was exposed to lethal radiation from a solar storm. The Phoenis Force (an firey alien bird-like being) saved her life by casting her into suspended animation in a pod at the bottom of a New York City bay. In the pod, as she slowly recovered from the radiation, another part of her psyche rose up in Jean's image and consciousness, calling itself Phoenix and taking Jean's place with no one being the wiser. And it was not necessarily evil, just young and new to human awareness; and thus drawn more to the things we consider bad.
Phoenix wasn't able to handle human emotions and eventually went insane, resurrecting the real Jeans personality long enough to make the Phoenix commit suicide. After it's death, Jean's consciousness returned to it's original body which still lay submerged in the bay and thereafter returned to the X-Men.

There are various Phoenix(es) and Phoenix stages throughout the Marvel stories:
Phoenix Factor - Original Phoenix from space / protector of the M'Krann Crystal, as one story goes.
Phoenix, a.k.a.: Firey Phoenix, a.k.a.: Dark Phoenix
Phoenix II - Alternate time line Phoenix, and Jean and Scott's daughter.

However, in the movie 'X-Men II', Jean is instead evolving to the next level of mutant.

Powers include:
PSI-POWERS - [Telepathy & Telekinesis], psi-blasts which is basically a mental blast of energy that can easily destroy the mind, could harness power as vast as the sun [also called cosmic power].

If you're still confused, don't sweat it, because it took me years to piece it all together too. :lol: ;)

Who is the most powerful mutant? My favorite is Magneto.

At his peak, Magneto is supposedly the most powerful naturally-occurring mutant. I think that is semi-official, although Professor X is arguably more powerful still, just unwilling to use his full powers. Then again, when he did lash out in anger and use his full powers to wipe Magneto's mind (which has some resistance to mental powers) the result was disastrous: part of Magneto's mind lodged itself into Professor X's mind, and eventually this led to the evolution of an evil being, Onslaught, with the powers of both ramped up to the nth degree.

The other main rival for the title is Apocalypse.

Alpha the Ultimate Mutant was more poweful than Magneto, but this was an artificial being created by Magneto himself.

Phoenix at her peak was even more powerful than the cosmic being Galactus, who can destroy entire planets. But remember that this version of Phoenex was a actually a cosmic force imitating Jean Grey - it wasn't Jean herself. All the same, Magneto defeated Phoenix when they fought, pushing her beyond her comfort zone, even though she was theoretically more powerful.

I'm amazed at how much X-Men trivia I know. My youth was mispent. :o
