Tigra's Rogues

Tigra has quest appeared in many comics over the years, and as a long lasting member of West Coast Avengers. One could think that she doesn't have enemies of her own, but she too has brought some villains to Marvel Universe.

Donalbain

Malcolm Donalbain

Malcolm was her first villain, who she fought as still human. She had slightly above normal feats thanks to Malcolm's funding, that he wanted to use to conquer the world. Malcolm died when they fought, not by her hands, but by his own.

Zabo

Zabo

Zabo is Malcolm's brother; she first met him along with his brother. Zabo escaped the first confrontation, but he blamed Tigra for his brother's death. Only after she was tuned into furry heroine, he was able to find her. Spider-Man even helped Tigra to fight Zabo, but she was able to convince him to make peace with the past.

Surisha

Surisha was a demoness living in sewers, thought she had a beauty of a princess; she needed human life-force to keep it. Her minion, Surisha and her minion had a symbiotic relationship, and shared a lifeforce. Tigra tracked them under the city and managed to convince the minion to feed on Surisha, killing them both.

Aesklos

Aesklos was said demoness' minion; he had symbiotic relation with her. Aesklos hunted for humans and drained their life-force; he then returned to their underground lair and feed Surisha.

Cougar

Cougar

Cougar was one of the Cat People that had evolved on earth, separated from their brothers in Land Within. He had selfish wishes and they involved power. He managed to get his hands on Null-Bands and tried to use them to siphon Thing of the Fantastic Four power. Tigra fought against his plans, and he too was killed, though yet again not by Tigra's hands, but by his own human lover, to whom he had lied about who and what he really is.

Tabur

Tabur

Tabur is creation of High Evolutionary from a regular house cat. He was left alone to earth back when High Evolutionary flew to space to inhabit his own planet. He was bitter and angry. Cat People took him in and helped him. He in-turn tried to help them by wanting to conquer the earth for them. Earth-bound Cat People, who that day revealed themselves to humans, and Tigra fought against him. In the end he was turned back to house cat.

Tigra had second confrontation with him years later, when Tabur had claimed the crown of Cat People living in Land Within. He wanted Tigra to be his mate, but she refused. It was at time where Tigra was overpowered by her cat-soul, which Agatha Harkness directed into Tabur, changing him back to housecat again.

Sultan

Sultan

Tigra found a new enemy in Australia when she lived with aborigines in the jungle. He had hired a band of mercenaries to kidnap local people and then he sold them. Women however were brought to his personal harem. Tigra too was captured, and used her sexiness to get close to him. Tigra's friends were released and returned to their homeland. Sultan was left behind swearing revenge.

Brethren of the Blue Fist

Brethren of the Blue Fist

Brethren of the Blue Fist was a group of policemen who fought crime by killing criminals. Ironically the group was founded by Tigra's dead husband William Nelson. In fact he was killed by the same group when he thought they have gone too far. Tigra used false alias to draft into police academy, and let herself initiated to the Blue Fist. Then from the inside she brought them all to justice, and completed police training to boot.

Frederick Dirkreich

Frederick Dirkreich

Evil rich dude who wanted to be superhuman, and experimented on himself, paralyzing himself and leaving his body to steady degeneration, ending in his death. He then searched for other means to empower and cure himself and found out about Tigra. He even went such lengths to obtain it, that he infected dozen or so people with cell degenerating disease to lure her to him. One of those infected was Tigra's father. Dirkreich found a cure by experimenting on Tigra, but Tigra freed herself after that and stole the cure for her father, leaving Dirkreich to die.

Torg

Torg

Torg is just muscle man for Dirkreich. He was part of the experiment for Dirkreich to gain superhuman abilities, but that experiment failed. Now Torg is basically just a jellied mass in the power armor. His mental capacity has also diminished, and that makes him good in following orders.

Am I the only one who hates Tigra?

Posted by KillerZ

Probably not, there are lot of haters. Plus she gets them more because she's furry, some hate her for that. There are even rumors that one of the writers at Marvel hates her.

The only reason I hate her is because i can't buy it (her origin I mean, that how I know if I like a character or not), I can get Iron Man, Spider-Man, Captain America, heck, I get Ms. Marvels origin, but I can't find anything about Tigra I like

Tigra is alright on a team, but I don't care much for her solo adventures.

Posted by KillerZ
@War Killer: That were the good old 70-ties, where one could get away without explaining things scientifically.

Have any of these guys appear, or at elast cameo, in anything the last few years are so, or are the as forgotten at the supporting cast of Dc's Impulse?

Posted by geraldthesloth

I liked her on the WCA but that's about it

Posted by KillerZ
@SilverZeo: 4 of them are dead at their first appearance, but they all are pretty much forgotten.

your not the only one KillerZ who likes her. And if you know any more about the blue Fist search it on here I started something while ago.

TIgra is a character that has potential.  Maybe change up her rogues list a bit.  I get an early Luke Cage feel when I look at these rogues.

@KillerZ: Really late, but this is a great blog! Thank you for writing it... :)

Posted by KillerZ
@Hawkeye446: It's never too late, and thanks.

I love checking out the rogues galleries of the less-obvious heroes. Excellent thread, KillerZ. Really, the whole thread is worth it for that picture of Donalbain's pants.

I've always liked her look and personality, but Marvel has mostly failed at giving her character any depth.

Tigra's biggest rogue is Kraven the Hunter.
