In the spirit of March Madness, here on the blog this month we will be holding the first official Familiar Madness Tournament. 16 of the all-time great familiars from literature, film, and television will face off in a single elimination tourney to decide who is the greatest of them all.
15. Lockheed - an alien dragon that is the longtime companion of Shadowcat (Kitty Pryde), a member of the X-Men
"Lockheed looks like a small European dragon about the size of a cat. He has purple skin, sharp claws and teeth, two small, curved horns protruding from the back of his head and wings that enable him to fly. He can breathe fire with extreme intensity and is a surprisingly formidable combatant for his size. He is also an empath which allows him to understand human speech. He is able to speak English as well, but rarely does so." (Wiki)
Kitty Pride may not be a wizard, per se, but her relationship with Lockheed is virtually symbiotic. This interstellar dragon may be an unconventional familiar, but when going up against Magneto and Galactus, you can't be picky where your magical pet comes from!
Tomorrow: Only one more familiar left to announce. Who will it be?
