As a child Yolanda manifested superhuman powers, but was unaware of why she was born a mutant. She grew close to her grandfather Ted Grant, who was the mysteryman Wildcat I during the 1940s. Years later, during the Crisis, Grant was crippled while saving a child. Yolanda become Wildcat II to honor her godfather and the principles he represented.
