> 1) Tigra is actually a NYC police officer. That happened in her mini series a few years back. Hence the cops who pulled guns on her a few issues ago would have known her (cat-cop is pretty big news). If that changed somehow I would love to hear when it did.

First off it was really only one cop that pulled a gun on her. What if the cops were new? Who says she's still a cop anyway?

> 2) Tigra is one of the most recognizeable super heroes on the planet; she is a cat woman! This is not Gravity trying to stop a bank robbery, for Christ's sake. She was an Avenger both in NYC and on the left coast and is very much a public figure.

So because she's a cat-person she's that noticeable? Hellcat got a raw deal there then.

I'm sure being an Avenger raises your profile, but just how not everyone knows who someone is just because they've been in movies doesn't mean everyone knows who Tigra is because she's been in the Avengers.

> 3) Tigra is a member of the Initiative, right? So unlike Parker, who had to worry about loved ones being hurt, she can actually turn to the likes of Stark for protection.

I think this would apply if just she was in danger. If she sics Stark on the Hood who's to say Stark could take him down BEFORE he gets to her mom?

> First off it was really only one cop that pulled a gun on her. What if the cops were new? Who says she's still a cop anyway?

Would be nice if that information was made more clear, then. If she is no longer a cop then that should be addressed. And if the cop were new the cop should have been punished, not her.

> So because she's a cat-person she's that noticeable? Hellcat got a raw deal there then.

Big difference between wearing a cat costume and actually being a cat person, especially one well known as having a costume consisting of a blue bikini.

> I'm sure being an Avenger raises your profile, but just how not everyone knows who someone is just because they've been in movies doesn't mean everyone knows who Tigra is because she's been in the Avengers.

Even if they did not know her as an Avenger, she is still a very unique figure.

> I think this would apply if just she was in danger. If she sics Stark on the Hood who's to say Stark could take him down BEFORE he gets to her mom?

And that is a crock. If a cop's family were threatened by a known dangerous criminal you can be sure something would be done about it. And considering what Tigra did for Stark (betraying Cap) I would think he owes her a big one.
