So you’re going round the internet, right? And you see this totally wicked-looking thread thing hanging round on your favourite forum, so you go into it. And then you see that it’s all about this Tabby-cat called Tabitha, and you’re like I want to know more about her? And you keep on reading it and then you find out that’s totally like brilliant and stuff? So you decide to write a comment and praise how good she is, and then other people see it and are all wow this person is just as interesting as I am. And then everyone is all friendly with each other apart from that one guy in the corner, who is taking all his clothes off and we’re all like what’s up with him? And it turns out that he’s being a predator so we back away.
You know Tabby, yeah? Tabitha Smith? Boomer? Boom Boom? Meltdown? From Nextwave? Yeah, you know her. This thread is all devoted to her and stuff. It’s like a sort of club where everyone can get to know her and be all happy that she exists. So, like, you wanna see what her Wikipedia page says, and everything? I can do that...

Tabitha can create balls of psionic energy that explode with concussive force.
Created by Jim Shooter and Al Milgrom, the character first appeared in Secret Wars II #5 (November 1985). She next appears as a main character in the Fallen Angels limited series. This leads to her becoming a supporting character in the X-Factor series beginning with issue #11, which in turn leads to her becoming a member of the short-lived X-Terminators team in the X-Terminators limited series. Following this series, she appears as a member of the New Mutants for the remainder of the New Mutants title; the team then became X-Force and she remained a member of the team for most of the X-Force series. Some time later, she appears as a member of Nextwave throughout the Nextwave series.
