Fictional character biography[edit]

Faustus is a black cat from Earth "somewhere in the far future". He journeys to the 20th century alongside a nameless federal agent from the future masquerading as a supervillain known as 13 in order to prevent an experimental missile falling into the hands of The Ghost, an enemy of the superhero Captain Atom. After their mission is completed, Faustus and 13 return to the future.

Powers and abilities[edit]

Faustus has the ability to teleport and to manifest various weapons (ropes, umbrellas, sound bubbles) seemingly out of nowhere and as if by magic. Faustus appears to bring bad luck to individual humans who he turns his attention to.
