According to Cat-Man, he was given nine lives, by a witch doctor. He used his new powers to commit crimes, and quickly came into conflict with the Blackhawk Squadron, which went badly for him. Cat-Man served a long prison sentence, believing that he had used up eight of his nine lives. Blackhawk believes that Cat-Man has used up only seven of them.
