Trivia / Black Cat

The Manga Series:

  • Development Hell: Around Black Cat's finale in 2006, author Kentaro Yabuki expressed intentions to create a sequel series. However, in 2009 Yabuki had a Creator Breakdown in the form of a troubled divorce turned legal battle over his work in To Love-Ru (so messy that it forced Yabuki and co-author Saki Hasemi to end said series) and he has not written a long manga series since.

The Marvel Comics character:

  • Reality Subtext: At the end of Venom Inc., Eddie Brock tells Felicia Hardy to stop being some sort of criminal mastermind, that being a hero suited her better. Hardy's Face–Heel Turn was never popular with fans at all and blamed Dan Slott for ruining a character.
