As Velvet Fox, Vanessa Crawford was a member of the Core, Michigan's premier superhero team. Her daughter Cassia also displayed superpowers, and Vanessa hoped that they would one day be superhero partners. But Vanessa died when Cassia was twelve. Vanessa had left her a legacy, one that Cassia discovered a few days before she turned 18 and became Critter.
Velvet Fox was created by writer Tom Hutchison and artist Jose Luis.
