Coach Wildcat is master of several fighting arts, including boxing, muay thai, capoeria, and Krav Maga. He is currently a P.E. teacher at Super Hero High School. He was known for being tough on his students and pouncing with deadly accuracy when confronted. He stressed strength and agility were important components of a superhero but mental strength and self control were just as important as physical strength. It is his goal that all students leave his class with the ability to overcome any obstacle with their unique sets of superpowers. He even helped Beast Boy unleash his inner beast. Wildcat subjected his students to tasks that would help them achieve including tossing trucks running a 50 mile obstacle course while dodging lasers, swimming with hungry sea serpents, and bounding over a huge hill of angry termites. During a phys ed class he held another relay race. This time, Wildcat substituted batons with fully charged Shock Sticks as an added incentive to run fast.

Wonder Woman was distracted by the anonymous threats she was receiving and as a result Cheetah hurt one of her legs. Rumors of a rivalry over getting on the Super Triathlon team ran rampant. Wildcat took on the role of head athletic coach for the Triathlon. He reviewed statistics and analysis of each competitor from a computer program Barbara Gordon developed. Secretly, Wildcat's role had a second purpose. He was helping Principal Waller in trying to confirm her suspicions of a CAD Academy spy. They approached Cheetah to be their eyes and ears and monitor the team as well. On Supergirl's first day, it also was Wildcat's strength test day in P.E. class. He remarked Wonder Woman was top of the class as always. Supergirl impressed everyone but lifting Beast Boy, in the form of a Brontosaurus, but he wobbled and lost balance. He changed into a bird and flew away rather than crush everyone. Wildcat admonished Supergirl for putting everyone in danger and advised her to learn to control her powers before someone did get hurt.

About a week later, Supergirl made strides thanks to Barbara Gordon and Wonder Woman. When the Save the Day alarm rang, Wildcat told Supergirl she was ready. The day before finals, Wildcat congratulated Wonder Woman on her sparring match with Cheetah. He appeared to be settled on giving her an A for the semester. The following semester, Wildcat attended Etrigan's surprise birthday party. In addition to his primary course, Wildcat also offered a Dinosaur Combat Elective. Mrs. Clayface posed as Wildcat and confiscated Batgirl's grapnel gun during P.E. class.
