Looked this up to better familiarize myself with Patsy after watching the first couple episodes of Jessica Jones on Netflix. I mostly knew her from her supporting appearances in She-Hulk's recent series. This book is interesting, but not what I was looking for. If you're looking for her superhero origin story, it's not covered in this series. It was a subplot in Avengers 141-151. Her first appearance in costume was 144. (Note that, due to behind the scenes delays, 145 and 146 are filler issues that have nothing to do with the ongoing story. The cliffhanger from 144 picks up in 147. 150 is likewise mostly filler.) Patsy's costume originally belonged to Greer Grant, The Cat. The first issue of her 4-part miniseries is currently available on MU and covers her origin story. Greer only appeared as The Cat a handful of times before becoming Tigra. Patsy herself had a longrunning series of teen romance comics back when those were the vogue and superheroes were out. The whole thing turns out to be very strange. (And, in some ways, oddly reminiscent of Batgirl, a skilled amateur gymnast who idolized superheroes, and, when she put on a costume, suddenly found that she could kick butt even if she did need more training.) But the romance comic background just makes it surreal, especially when it became canon that those comics exist in the Marvel universe, published by Patsy's mother and based on her actual teenage life. I don't blame the Netflix series for rewriting her. Unfortunately, the MU character index for Hellcat currently directs you to the short-lived alternate Heroes Reborn universe (in which she's much more like Tigra) rather than the 616 Avengers or this series).
