Young Paula Brooks (approximately age 18-19) expressed a fan worship of Paul Kirk, the Manhunter, and so decided to train herself in both the martial arts and as a markswoman, crafting a special crossbow gun that allowed her to fire darts, in the hopes of becoming his partner. She first appeared in the identity of the Tigress during a special exhibition baseball game between the All-Star Squadron and the Young All-Stars, and then later stowed away aboard a plane heading for the Carribean to help the youth auxiliary team rescue Green Lantern and a young Jamaican female orphan from Baron Blitzkrieg. Although Paul Kirk didn't accept her as a partner, Paula was given membership as part of the Young All-Stars. During that time, she frequently made a play for "Iron" Munro as well, which at times invoked a rivalry among her fellow teammate Helena Kosmatos (Fury). During a battle with the Nazi warriors known as Axis Amerika, Tigress was attacked and seemingly killed by the Valkyrie known as Gudra. She came back to life or was revived (it was unclear if she really was dead or not) with a new attitude which eventually led to her becoming the villainous Huntress.
Paula and Crusher's daughter Artemis grew up to become a supervillain herself, eventually becoming the new Tigress.
