W is also for Wildcat

Wildcat, real name Ted Grant, was a superhero and member of the Justice League after the Thanagarian invasion. Wildcat was a born fighter. His skills and abilities were unmatched, and in his early years he was a premiere prizefighter. Victorious at every turn, he eventually grew beyond the routine offered in the fighting ring and instead turned his focus to fighting crime. After the Thanagarian Invasion, Wildcat joined the Justice League.

Wildcat has no special powers or abilities like most of the other members of the League. However, his fighting skills are rivaled by few. A former prizefighter, his physical capabilities and tolerance for pain seem higher than an average person, able to punch through a solid brick wall with no difficulty. He is an expert in various forms of combat.

Making his debut in Sensation Comics #1 (January 1942), Wildcat was a boxer-turned-vigilante after his greedy managers framed him for the murder of his coach Socker Smith.

Wildcat (Ted Grant) appeared in the animated series Justice League Unlimited. He had a prominent role alongside Black Canary and Green Arrow in the 2005 episode "The Cat and the Canary" where he was competing in Roulette's Meta-Brawl after he became less involved in missions, leaving him to train the other heroes on the Watchtower.
