Velvet Tiger is cunning and ruthless in her actions and has demonstrated a keen strategic ability. She is an average athlete and hand-to-hand combatant, preferring to let hired hands do the work for her.
Time Travel: Velvet Tiger has the ability to stop time and enter a special dimension that is between the seconds. She is the only one who can survive in this dimension.
Lani Gilbert achieved fame and wealth as a co-owner, with her brother Ward of Gotham Cityís Gilcom, a multi-national computer hardware manufacturer. During that time, she was seduced by the ease of using computerís to access other peopleís systems and secrets. Eventually, Lani began using the information gleaned from these others to build a criminal career as an extortionist and blackmailer.
When Ward found out about his sisterís illegal affairs, he tried to stop Lani, only to find himself confronted by a costumed criminal called the Velvet Tiger, secretly Lani.
