First appearing in Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers back in 1993, Cammy White became an instant bit hit with the fans, though she wasn’t destined to quite appear in all the subsequent titles from that point onwards. Originally a teen agent of the fictional Delta Red task force within Britain’s MI6, Cammy was written in as suffering from memory loss, making her fit in quite nicely as a member of the villainous M. Bison’s group for a start, until the writers needed something else from her in the future.

A slim girl with a scar on her cheek and a penchant for thong leotards, Cammy is a close range fighter who relies on speed and agility to penetrate her enemies’ defenses.

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!
