Jim Lee's WildCATs: Covert Action Teams is a 2D side-scrolling brawler based on the 1992 DC Comics license of the same name by the eponymous comic book artist Jim Lee and writer Brandon Choi. It features a superhero team comprised of humans, cyborgs and "half-breeds" of various alien races that have cross-bred with humans over generations. Humanity and their allies the Kherubim have been at war with the monstrous Daemonite race, led by the tyrant Lord Helspont, for centuries. Their best line of defense is a covert team of the best the planet Earth has to offer.
The player jumps between the biomechanical "Hadrian series" cyborg Spartan, the human/"Shaper" hybrid Warblade and the enormous human/"Titanthrope" hybrid Maul. Spartan can summon purple electricity to shock his foes, Warblade is able to shape his arms into deadly bladed weapons that can also help him climb walls, and Maul can use his immense strength to blast through walls and flatten enemies. Each stage is built for a specific hero's abilities, so there's no choosing heroes before starting a level.
