Maria Montez and her sister were patients of the insane Doctor Love when both were pregnant, and unknown to them were subjected to untested procedures which mutated their unborn babies. Maria's sister gave birth to the monstrosity called Carcharo and died trying to drown the infant, but Maria gave birth to a healthy, seemingly normal baby girl. Years later, Maria's daughter Yolanda would develop super powers as a result of the experiments and would become the heroine Wildcat. Maria and her husband Juan also have a son, Jose.


  • Sewing: When Yolanda needs her costume repaired she trusts in her mother's sewing skills.
  • Maria and Juan Montez are, or were, close friends of the original Wildcat, Ted Grant.
