The Guild of Calamitous Intent
Performer at Gargantua-2
Copy-Cat is an ambitious super-villain who has the ability to make duplicates of himself. He is tall and handsome, with wavy hair. He typically wears eyeglasses, tailored suits, and cuff links with the Guild of Calamitous Intent's logo on them.
At some point in the past, Copy-Cat joined The Guild of Calamitous Intent. He has been successful, and lives in Tophet Tower in New York City. Jonas Venture Jr.'s sales pitch for Gargantua-2 seems to imply he was part of the "world-class entertainment" that performed there.
Copy-Cat attended the party that Wide Wale held for his daughter Sirena's 18th birthday. There, Copy-Cat approached Dr. Mrs. The Monarch and expressed interest in joining the Council of 13. Dr. Mrs. The Monarch was put off by Copy-Cat's flirtatious demeanor.
Later, the Monarch arrived at the party in his costume, which angered Wide Wale. Copy-Cat intervened and offered to loan the Monarch a suit from his apartment downstairs. As Copy-Cat and the Monarch left, Copy-Cat made a duplicate of himself who stayed at the party.
In his apartment, Copy-Cat stole the Monarch's costume and tranquilized him. Copy-Cat then went to VenTech Tower, where he created more duplicates of himself and assaulted Sgt. Hatred. Copy-Cat then proceeded to the Ventures' residential area and urinated on the furniture, keeping his face away from the window.
The version of Copy-Cat that was still at Wide Wale's party had Dr. Mrs. The Monarch observe the goings-on in VenTech Tower through a telescope. She saw the person that she believed to be the Monarch vandalizing Dr. Venture's home (in violation of Guild law), and subsequently ignoring her phone call. This enraged Dr. Mrs. The Monarch, and she left. Copy-Cat was pleased.
Personality and AbilitiesEditCopy-Cat is confident and charming, though this can be interpreted as him being smug and insincere. He has a habit of addressing people by affectionate nicknames.
Copy-Cat has the superhuman ability to create duplicates of himself. This includes any clothing or equipment that he may have on his person.
Copy-Cat also claimed to have the ability to be "in the right place at the right time", though this may only be coincidence.
- Copy-Cat's abilities are very similar to those of The Tick's 'Multiple Santa'. Venture Bros co-creator Jackson Publick was involved in The Tick and Ben Edlund, creator of The Tick, wrote Venture Bros episode ¡Viva Los Muertos!
- Copy-Cat's abilities are similar to those of the Marvel Comics character Multiple Man, and Multi-Man from the Hanna-Barbera cartoon show The Impossibles.
- Copy-Cat's demeanor appears to be based on that of the 'Rat Pack', especially Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. This is likely where the 'cat' comes from in his name, rather than an affiliation with the animal... although "Copy Cat" is a common noun phrase.
