A mutant, Kitty possesses a “phasing” ability that allows her and objects or people with which she is in contact to become intangible. This power also disrupts any electrical field she passes through, and allows her to simulate levitation. At the time of her initial membership, under the then codename Sprite, Pryde was the youngest person invited to join the X-Men team.

During her early years, she was portrayed as a “kid sister” to many older members of the X-Men, filling the role of literary foil to the more established characters. However, this has evolved with time and Shadowcat is now more than capable of standing on her own. Apart from her phasing skills, Kitty is also a capable pilot and hand-to-hand fighter, as well as possessing excellent computer skills, both in terms of programming and design.

Oh, and she is a talented dancer, at a professional level in both ballet and modern dance, and can shout at you in English, Japanese or Russian if she so wants!
