Popclaw is a member of the Teenage Kix, an edgy alternative styled teenage superhero team. The team despite its public appearance as superheroes who fight evil, actually indulges in less than savory behavior and actions, including large orgies and doing drugs, and stealing from hospitals. When the anti superheroes team the Boys and their leader Butcher decided to make an example out of the Teenage Kix, Popclaw is one of the members of the team who has incriminating photos taken of her. Popclaw is photographed practicing self-mutilation. The Teenage Kix are sent a package of incriminating materials with a note essentially forcing one of them to go public with their indiscretions. Popclaw manages to keep her secret confidential as Shout Out is chosen as the member forced to come out as gay. Popclaws teammates are Big Game, leader of the Teenage Kix, Blarney Cock, Gunpowder, DogKnott, Shout Out, and Whack Job. In a confrontation with the Boys when the Teenage Nix realized it was Butcher blackmailing them, Popclaw was seriously injured in an encounter with the dangerous Female.
