Black Cat #12

Black Cat versus Iron Man, 'nuff said. After stealing herself some Stark armor, Black Cat leads Iron Man across the city on a joyride filled with some fun banter and a solid twist that leaves old Shellhead shell shocked. It's the perfect culmination to Felicia's recent notable thefts.

Black Cat #12 is the best issue of the series. Sadly it's also the final issue of the series. Despite being in the middle of the year-long arc of Felicia's war with Odessa Drake and the Thieves Guild, Black Cat has apparently become a COVID casualty. Still, the story teased at the end of the issue, which would have appeared in Black Cat #12 featuring a fight with Queen Cat will apparently take place in the upcoming Black Cat: Queen in Black (although no word yet on Felicia's war with the guild).

As for Odessa, she does get a surprise visit from armored Black Cat. However that doesn't seem enough dissuade her from attempting to force Felicia back into the fold as the guild's most valuable asset.
