Synopsis for 1st story

Flashback to a few weeks prior, Black Cat recruits for her gang a group of four girls who just broke into a SoHo apartment, wanting to take revenge on a musician who dated one of its members, Zoe. They are rechristened "Black Cats".

Present day Brooklyn, Patsy Walker and Jubilee give self-defense lessons to Bailey, and Patsy has an argument with roommate Ian Soo as he rejects her suggestions to use his powers to fight crime. Outside, Bailey leaves for a barcade while Patsy jumps around the city roofs to think about Ian. Once she takes off the Hellcat costume to leave him a message, Patsy does not know she's revealing her secret identity to Black Cat and the gang, who are seeing Patsy from a nearby building. The Black Cats decide to take out the superpowered people who used the services of The Patsy Walker Temp Agency to ensure no one would stop their plans to get rid of Hellcat.

A crew of Black Cats are sent to Patsy's apartment building to check out on her. Zoe recognizes the neighborhood, and then she has a brief argument with her former landlord, Mr. Ravina. His son Federigo breaks the fight, reminding Zoe that "when you and your boyfriend broke up, he stayed in the apartment, and everything worked out fine"; however, once Zoe receives a picture from Patsy's apartment where Hellcat is hugging Ian, she breaks into a fit of rage and tackles Federigo. Zoe then throws a garbage can lid at Patsy's window, and screams at her and Ian demanding them to get to the street, threatening to further hurt Federigo if they don't do so. Ian is forced to explain to Patsy that Zoe is the roommate that had just left before he met Hellcat and asked her to move in. Hellcat punches Zoe, who has to be dragged away by a fellow thug, but not before revealing she is under Black Cat's orders. Ian then floats down to the street using his powers, asking Zoe to lash out any unsolved problems on him.

Meanwhile, Black Cat and two lackeys break into Patsy's office at Ideahive, Inc.. Bailey has arrived to work extra time, and is promptly captured. While Bailey notes "the last time someone took me captive, it did not work out well for them", Black Cat is amused by her "bag of holding" and asks how it works. Black Cat then tests it by shoving an underling into the bag, and once it's successful, she proceeds to say "Oh, we are going to have some fun".

Solicit Synopsis


Who’s ready for a knock-down, drag-out, no-holds-barred CAT-FIGHT? Literally! Okay, it’s kind of figurative because they’re not *actually* cats, but it’s pretty close. Felicia Hardy is on a collision course with Patsy Walker. You know what that means? It’s Hellcat vs. Black Cat y’all! Featuring everyone’s favorite teenage vampire Jubilee! But who’s side is she on? Sharpen your claws because it’s going to be a feline fiasco for the ages!


Patsy and Federigo mention a musical soundtrack album that gets really sad on Disc 2. Given Ian is seen singing along to "It's Quiet Uptown", said musical is Hamilton.
