Cheetah in Wolverine cloths

Britanny Diggers is one of my favorite characters of all time and I have browsed countless fanarts of her. She has cosplayed as Baroness for Halloween, dressed up as Wonder Woman as a reference to the conflict between the amazon princess and the villainous Cheetah of DC comics (who Britanny surpasses in all possible ways), and has been in so many crossovers with Cheetara and Felicia that it is one of the most common crossovers for catgirls. She has even had her bikini top stolen by a member of the X-Men done by Fred Perry. But for all this great work, she has never once referenced or crossed over with one of the biggest influences on her as a character and her powers: James "Logan the Wolverine" Howlett. Not just the healing factor, not just the inhuman senses, Britanny being inspired in part by Wolverine includes her own set of retractable claws...which only show up once as a throw-away joke at her wedding and Brit having too little red meat in her diet means they are so weak they can't cut butter, but yes she has them. So as I have been throwing out AU fanart of her for a while now, I figured why not have it where Britanny does get some use out of those blades and starts packing on the red meat needed to make those things as strong as they are supposed to be. Not the "cut though everything" level of sharpness of adamentium, but hey magically enchanted and enhanced keratin claws being wielded by Brit aren't something to take lightly.

Gina: So Britanny what's with all the bison meat?

Brit: Oh that, just keeping in shape.

Gina: And the outfit?

Brit: Just because Hugh Jackman never wore anything like it, doesn't mean I don't love it. 

Gina: Uh huh....

Britanny: I'm the best at what I do, and what I do best...is shopping and nookie.

I didn't know that she was inspired by him... BUT GENIUS!

Inhumane regeneration, hyper sensitive levels of smell and hearing, and excellent hand to hand combat skills...and then there was the wedding where her grandmother gave her a pair of gloves with retractable claws which was the original idea of how Wolverine's claws worked. So yes a lot from Britanny is from Logan.

Yeah, sorry, Gotham's my territory, Not Themyscira, I don't know very many of the Amazon Princess's rogues that well... though I do know Dr. Domino...

Actually that is the wrong Cheetah. This is Britanny Diggers ('Gia in the comics) from Fred Perry's Gold Digger. This is not Wonder Woman's arch-villain. This is who this Cheetah is: gold-digger-source.wikia.com/w…

Is that still DC?

No it is from Antarctic Press comics. An independent company which focuses on Amerimanga comic style.antarctic-press.myshopify.com

It makes sense considering she was inspired by the 3 clawed character himself. :) (I think)

Yep, which I discussed in the info section. Brit even has her own set of forearm claws, but never used them and only once showed them off. I am glad you like it.

Considering Cheetah can brawl with Wonder Woman, I'm not sure I would say Britanny surpasses her 'in all possible ways'...

Unless you are talking about the new Cheetah of DC, which I gave up on DC at the 52 reboot, the villain I know is a human who is just wearing a fur coat, or got furry in a lab accident. Britanny is far faster than her, bigger than her (7' tall and 307 lbs of muscle and curves), is a gifted martial artist who was taught to fight by the Arms Master of Jade, can regenerate from almost any damage in less than a day, and can dead lift at least 15 tons. Ontop of that her senses are stronger, she has the ability to see on infrared, and has a "cheetah sense". So even if the new version got some sort of upgrade Brit has got this easy and Wonder Woman doesn't go all the way against her nemesis. 
*Edit* I forgot to mention that Britanny is also better looking than the DC Cheetah.

The Cheetah you know is, on one part, only the first, and the other, is only a single version for the Justice League cartoon. Most of them are empowered as the avatar/bride of a god - which, y'know, makes her magical, and thus something that would cause lasting harm to Britanny, whose regeneration is stunted by magical damage... which also, conveniently enough, cuts right through her lycanthropic damage resistance. Which, hilariously, even got used in a cartoon, where Luthor, Joker, and Cheetah traded nemeses for an episode to take advantage of differing circumstances rather than keep getting beaten - Cheetah handles Superman rather handily because his Kryptonian invulnerability is nothing to her magical nature. She is not a mundane woman that Britanny can dance around. Trying to wow me with facts about Britanny that I already know won't change that.

She can overpower Wonder Woman and is noted to be 'superhumanly strong,' even managing to strangle Wonder Woman with her tail. Beyond that, even before New 52, she is far, far, FAR faster than Britanny, being noted by Wonder Woman as being 'nearly as fast as the Flash.' Which is something Britanny cannot approach, since she isn't even as fast as her biological father, who is noted in the source book as having the highest Speed stat in the setting (although platinum dragons in flight may have a higher unlisted Speed). Beyond that, DC's Cheetah also has enhanced senses beyond those of a mundane human, since she is the avatar/bride of a god that transformed her into a cheetah being - and I don't even know what you're talking about with a 'cheetah sense,' unless we're going with Britanny making up senses as a thing now. So... no. Britanny does not 'have this easy.' Really, the only things Britanny has better are martial arts and size (beauty being in the eye of the beholder and all). Because, again, Cheetah can handle Superman... which the New 52 version also does, overwhelming him and biting him. Which apparently carries an infectious transformation, since it turned Superman into a raging cheetah-man.

Look, I like Gold Digger more than anything that's come out of DC, but you're essentially trying to say that Britanny > DC top tier heroes. She's not. You're not going to convince me otherwise, because Britanny was not written to be a ridiculously overpowered character like Wonder Woman was once she had to share setting with the likes of Superman. You are trying to push a narrative that simply does not exist solely because you like one character more than the other and aren't willing to actually look up anything to try and back up your claims. I actually did look up information on the Cheetah to confirm, complete with images taken from various comics. The Cheetah most DC fans know would tear Britanny apart. I might not like that, but it doesn't make it any less true.

Actually there were at least 3 different human cheetahs as you have Golden Age, Silver Age, and the Challenge of the Superfriends. And Britanny too has a prehensile tail she has used to strangle stronger foes as well as dealt with supposed gods and their partners before. Also doesn't DC have this odd rule of superior martial arts skills somehow defeating super-powers for reasons that defy logic (the because Batman excuse). So I stand by my choice of Britanny over DC.

And what idiot had Superman physically taken down by someone slower and weaker than him? Because that sounds like writer favoritism to me and the reason I stopped reading mainstream comics over a decade ago.

She wears it better than he ever did.

She looks hot in just about anything, or nothing, and absolutely better than X-23 trying to be Wolverine. I'm glad you like.
