While driving home during a thunderstorm Blanche Fitzcatrick hit an old woman who had darted across the street chasing after a cat. When Blanche got out of her car to check on the woman, she had vanished. All that remained was a dirty old blanket from which a faint meowing could be heard. The blanket was actually a gateway to the long forgotten Land of the Giant Kittens. Peering into the bowels of cuteness, Blanche learned the secret of the blanket and took up the mantle of Blankitten, with the ability to spew forth giant extradimensional kittens whenever needed.
