Cheetah wants nothing more than to rule Super Hero High with an iron paw. She's very charismatic and that's what draws the other girls to her. But watch out, she's not afraid to cheat to get her way, just like her name suggests. Get it? She's a cheat'ah. Hailing from Nottinghamshire, England, Cheetah considers herself superior to her classmates at Super Hero High and often does whatever it takes to get attention and praise she thinks she deserves. She's considered one of Super Hero High's most competitive students. Her determination makes her a star on the Heroball field. Cheetah's specialty is making quick strikes.
Despite a speed limit of 25 miles per hour in hallways, Cheetah sped around. Wonder Woman stepped on her tail and stopped her in her tracks. Cheetah called Wonder Woman a newbie and ran off with Hawkgirl, the hall monitor, in hot pursuit. During a Flyer's Education course, Cheetah took a cat nap near the course and supplied a doctor's note to excuse her presence. She secretly used a remote to sabotage Wonder Woman's safety belt when it was her turn to fly the course. As a result, Wonder Woman got a score of zero. In Weaponomics class, Cheetah used Catwoman's Cat of Nine Tails to sabotage Wonder Woman's demonstration of her lasso. It got worse when the lasso caught their teacher Mr. Fox and made him confess several things. Cheetah avoided any infractions and Wonder Woman was given detention for not controlling her weapon. Cheetah is a member of the Band Club and Track Team.
Cheetah was on the student committee for the Super Triathlon and nominated Wonder Woman to be on the team because even she knew that was the school's best chance at winning. Cheetah, however, was considered a frontrunner for the team. During one of Coach Wildcat's relay races, Wonder Woman was distracted by the anonymous threats and made a sharp turn, bumping into Cheetah. Cheetah landed on a rock and hurt one of her legs. The Shock Sticks they used instead of batons caused a rock fall, Wonder Woman carried her off to safety. Rumors of a rivalry began. Principal Waller and Coach Wildcat approached Cheetah to be their eyes and ears at the Triathlon and monitor the team. Before the finale, Cheetah caught Golden Glider trying to steal the Lasso of Truth. Right when Cheetah snatched it back, the team returned to the locker room and Cheetah was suspected of being the one threatening Wonder Woman all along. After the Triathlon was over and Golden Glider was found out, Cheetah explained everything to Wonder Woman
Desperate to be Hero of the Month, Cheetah sabotaged Lucius Fox's Invisible Jetpack and planned to save him. On the end of the semester, she scaled the school but Wonder Woman and Bumblebee saved Fox instead. Wonder Woman noticed her clutched to the gem and offered her the Lasso of Truth to grab hold of. Cheetah resisted and fell. Luckily, Wonder Woman caught her with the lasso. As a result, Cheetah admitted to the subterfuge and plotting against Wonder Woman all semester long. Amanda Waller and Lucius Fox assigned her lot's of detention. On Supergirl's first day, Cheetah was part of the supers who responded to the Save the Day alarm triggered by Killer Croc. Rather than helping, Cheetah was more focused on beating the high score in a game on her cell phone. She was annoyed when Croc wrecked her phone. After the battle, Cheetah went to Barbara Gordon, whom she called a "nonnie," to fix her phone. Gordon determined it was beyond repair and lent her Barbara Assembled Tech. She was disgusted it had no apps.
Cheetah was in the same P.E. class as Supergirl and saw her botched strength test even though it was because Beast Boy lost his balance. During the next Save the Day, Cheetah taunted Supergirl. As a result, Supergirl lost her confidence and accidentally hit Bumblebee in the leg with her heat vision. Cheetah restricted Giganta's sight by wrapping her hair around her face and then was carried away by Hawkgirl. In defense of Super Hero High against Granny Goodness, Cheetah fought against Mad Harriet. When Cheetah fell over, the Barbara Assembled Tech fell out. It activated and blasted Harriet in the face. Cheetah tackled and stuffed her into a locker. She blew the phone like a gun and walked away. The next day, after Granny and her goons were sent to Belle Reve Penitentiary and Juvenile Detention Center, Cheetah thanked Gordon by name for the tech.
Upset Frost won Hero of the Month before her, Cheetah schemed to get nominated. She had Harley Quinn hold up Capes & Cowls Cafe with a disguise then she would enter and save the day. Wonder Woman botched it. She built a giant rampaging robot but lost her remote control while fighting it and her ruse was found out by Batgirl, Supergirl, and Wonder Woman. Cheetah heard Solomon Grundy was attacking a senior center but at that point, no one believed her. She went alone and tied up Grundy with a large ball of yarn. Grundy revealed he was there because it was open mic night and he wanted to recite a poem. Cheetah let him go.
On the day before semester finals, Cheetah and Wonder Woman sparred in Wildcat's P.E. class. Cheetah lost. In the afternoon, she went to detention. Cheetah spurred Poison Ivy to prove herself and make the biggest wildest plant for finals. After school, she went to Harley Quinn's party. During decorating for Hero of the Year, Crazy Quilt scolded Cheetah and ordered her to return the award to wherever she found it. She turned around and muttered. Cheetah took part in Crazy Quilt's production number for Hero of the Year but she wasn't improving. Quilt compromised with Waller's request for more students to help guard campus by giving her Cheetah. The following semester, on a Friday, Cheetah guarded the entrance to the Theater Department because Ravager was conducting a closed rehearsal. Wonder Woman and Harley used the Lasso of Truth to question her about theft of the Batjet but she knew nothing. Hawkgirl later demanded entrance for the Metropolis Junior Detective Society but Cheetah refused. They sneaked in through the auditorium but Hawkgirl's wings got caught in the curtain. Ravager ordered Cheetah, Star Sapphire, and Mammoth to act. Cheetah chased after Flash. Captured, Batgirl explained the situation. To Ravager's surprise, someone left the costume room a complete mess. Cheetah was voted "Most Ferociously Fashionable" in the Super Hero High School Yearbook.
