I must admit that tough Wildcat team possess some cool concept character, like grifter, Zealot and maybe spartan, it suffer from average-to-bad writing, no real sense of scenario and some REALLY messed up character who look like nothing ( I.E.Maul, Warblade.) 
 
So, Yeah...

I don't think he meant THE W.I.L.D.C.A.T.S I think he meant Wildcat from JSA.

I don't know if he has any miniseries or anything.JSA is the only thing i've read where Ted actually does something significant.There are some "JSA CLASSIFIED" issues that focus just on him.

JSA The Next Age, is pretty Ted Grant centric, it's the first collection of the "new" JSA book (Not JSA All-Stars, just the regular JSA book.)

Unfortunately, I've found that Wildcat is one of those characters that is only seen in team books. As mentioned already there was a few issues of JSA: Classified that dealt with solo stories -- and they were pretty good -- and the first JSA arc from the new series is a good place to see Ted take front and center. Other than that, though, you'll have to read JSA to read Wildcat and he is often relegated to a background character.

I remember Ted Grant in DC - New Frontier, he was defending his title from Mohammed Ali.

Wildcat really doesn't have any stand-out story-arcs of his own.

That's to bad considering how long he's been around.

He does have that one where he dealt with the JSA-Archenemy team (can't remember their name) solo.

Is it actually a Wildcat story-arc or more like JSA story-arc?

Either way; Do you know the series & issues it occurred in? I'd like to check it out.

JSA. When he fought Crimson Avenger is also worth a mention.

Its in the early JSA (from the late 90s) -- under anywhere between issue 10-40. Can't say for sure.

It's a standalone Wildcat issue from the Johns/Goyer volume. I think it was # 10. Classified, All Stars, Catwoman/Wildcat and Batman/Wildcat are all worth reading.

Oh, I remember that one now.

That's when the new Crimson Avenger came on the scene and kept shooting Wildcat.

@PowerHerc: Yeah.

Yeah, its from the Johns/Goyer run IIRC correctly and the issue sounds right too Herc.

Lately? Wildcat's one of the most poorly utilized characters in DC history...but one with loads of potential. The best Wildcat you're gonna find is the original Bill Finger/Irwin Hasen version, reprinted in the single volume of JSA ALL-STARS with another 2 or 3 stories in the COMIC CAVALCADE Archive. Check out the B. Krigstein-drawn reprint in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA (1st series) # 96 and the Joe Kubert one in WANTED # 6. But you may be well aware of all these. Wildcat's a great character whose background and power level may just be too simple for contemporary readers accustomed to more flash. A good writer without soap-opera tendencies could do a lot with him. He could be nearly iconic.
