Catalyst Lass has been a member of the LNH since at least the Cosmic Plot Device Caper, but she really stepped into the spotlight when she temporarily became leader of the LNH during Looniverse Adrift!. She lead a successful campaign against Lord Ebon, holding off all foes and, despite all odds, getting the Looniverse back to alt.comics.lnh. Afterwards, she organized the Valentine's Ball as a way for the LNH to relax, enjoy themselves, and engage in some spicy romance.

At one point, her powers were "boosted" by one of the Webs. She entered Particle Man's mind in order to help him with angst and personal problems. For a while after, they had a growing attraction and the beginnings of a relationship, but it never fully materialized, due to miscommunication, drifting apart, and the writers who shipped them no longer writing for the LNH.

At some point in 1992, she inadvertently "catalyzed" Revamp Lass of the Brotherhood of Net.Villains into a copy of herself. This was only revealed in 1995, during a confrontation against Revampirella, Queen of the Revampires, after which the former Revamp Lass became Hell Catalyst. There's no way to tell which Catalyst Lass was which before that point; any of the above events she was involved in could have actually been Hell Catalyst.

She became one of the leaders of the LNH again during Beige Countdown. However, she was being mentally controlled by Mr. Tiddles, making her into a pawn of the HexFire Club— or so it seemed. In fact, Doctor Stomper had given her a device that neutralized Tiddles's powers, and along with Hell Catalyst, she counter-infiltrated the HexFire Club, leading to their downfall in Beige Midnight.


Friendly and outgoing. Somewhat ditzy, but often putting it on so that others will underestimate her. A romantic at heart, and a mild flirt. Enjoys organizing "projects" and motivating others to help out. Good at staying level-headed in bizarre situations. Definite leadership abilities.

Powers and Abilities

The psionic power to cause others to share her interests.


Light blue high-collared tights with jigsaw-puzzle logo. Brunette.


Has been romantically involved with Particle Man. She also demonstrated an odd interest in Invisible Incendiary (unless that was Hell Catalyst).


Note that any of Cat's appearances from before Catalytic Conversions could have actually been Hell Catalyst.
