|“||I'm a reporter. And there's no tool more powerful for change than the press.||”|
Catherine J. "Cat" Grant is a journalist and the founder/former CEO of CatCo Worldwide Media.
Becoming a Journalist[edit source]
|“||I became a journalist to make waves.||”|
At some point, Cat Grant became a journalist and was hired by the Daily Planet as a gossip columnist. She was then nicknamed "CJ Grant" by editor-in-chief, Perry White.
Grant was married once to an unnamed man.
Luckiest Town in America?[edit source]
On May 25, 2009, Grant went to Midvale after it was nicknamed the luckiest town in America. She then went to a diner and ordered a cup of milkshake.
On the next day, Grant went to Midvale College and interviewed a "professor" on the accident taking place in the building. The "professor" denied all claims that there was someone protecting the small town and Grant left the college. Later, she witnessed a speeding fuel truck as she struggles to find her current whereabouts. However, she was able to glimpse that there was a blue light emitting on the truck. She then photographed it and followed the truck on her car. As she arrived on the scene, there was nobody on the truck.
Determined to reveal the secrets behind the town, Grant went to an open bar and drank several drinks before being mistaken as Lois Lane. The bartender talked to her about her photographs and reminded her to clean the lenses, allowing her to discover a suspicious shadow looming over the fuel truck. She then walked to a child and offered to buy his drone. She then went to the woods and recorded the capture of two aliens.

— CJ's headline[src]
After the capture of evidence, Grant stayed in the woods until the night and accidentally released Naxim Tork and Mitch from the cages, allowing them to attack Kara Danvers. On the ship, Grant met Kenny Li, who was willingly captured to protect Danvers. However, he compared Tork and Mitch as big dogs and himself as a human chew toy. Grant observed him and encouraged him. Later, "Brandon" and "Brenda" stormed the ship and released Grant alongside Li. They were then confronted by Tork and Mitch, who were then quickly defeated by Danvers with a punch. Despite their success, the ship was attacked by the Midvale Police Department and Grant, Li and Danvers surrendered themselves, with the aliens leaving to Time Travel and fix their current situation. As they were arrested, Grant witnessed Danvers' escape and the events starting from the ambush in the woods were erased.

— Cat Grant to a college student[src]
During the recording, Grant's drone was shot and crashed on the ground. She then met a college student, who encouraged her to leave the Daily Planet and gave her the idea of changing her nickname to "Cat Grant". She was then inspired by her speech and continued to do what she said, quitting her original employer and starting her own news media, CatCo.
Road to Success[edit source]
For the later years, Grant built CatCo Worldwide Media from scratch and led it to success. She later became friends with Oprah and a fundamental figure in journalism.
In 2015, Grant hired Kara Danvers as her personal assistant and eventually allowed her to pursue her dreams as a reporter.
In 2018, Grant sold the media empire to Lena Luthor, who owned the company for approximately 2 years until selling it to Obsidian North under Andrea Rojas' leadership.
