Nagging Thoughts for 2/5

I am pretty sure you cannot call yourself a covert action team if you include covert in your team name, right?

Did the Wildcats CALL themselves the Wildcats? I never was sure about that.

How did Warblade die exactly?

How did he come back?

Or was it Zealot who died?

Anyone remember exactly what happened between the end of WildC.A.Ts and the beginning of Wildcats?

Why Wildcats? Anyone ever explain the choice of name?

As far as the name WildC.A.T.s, if I remember correctly, the team was first called that by I/O when they monitored some battle between the 'Cats and someone else. I/O didn't know who they were so they just refered to them as WildC.A.T.s. The term seemed to be used to identify any group that wasn't affiliated with a government and that was acting covertly; WildC.A.T.s is to superhero teams as U.F.O is to flying stuff. The name eventually just stuck.

I don't remember anythng about Warblade dying, but Zealot was killed off in between volumes 1 and 2. I don't remember any explanation for her return, though. Probably just "she wasn't really dead" or something.

When WildCATs made the transition from the original mini-series to an ongoing series, Jim Lee added a little "W" icon to most of the character's costumes, except for Void and Emp.

The explanation given in the lettercol was that at some point in the Travis Charest-drawn "WildCATs special" the team adopted had already adopted the name, so Lee decided by the time the CyberForce crossver kicked in that they would have adopted a team symbol.

(I can't believe I actually remember this.)
