The Night Huntress
Kitt Kougar, owner of Chelsea Place--Manhattan's swankiest nightclub, is quite comfortable in her bronze skin. Then she learns that, during an emergency life-saving transfusion, she, unwittingly, became the recipient of enhanced DNA from a rare, melanistic jaguar, transforming her into a super-powerful half-woman, half-jaguar, transgenic being that is far beyond human.
