I’m webcomics artist, not a costumed superheroine, but I keep having these crazy dreams that I fly and shoot power bolts out of my fingers—and battle a menacing supervillain. Other weird stuff is happening, too. Something is up. That’s why I’m in New York on a really lame television superhero game show, so I can question people in the comic book business. They ought to know if supervillains are real or not, right? But what if they don’t have the answers? Why is it my duty to become a temporary superheroine and save the world all on my own? Make that two worlds. It’s complicated.
PG-rated nonstop comic book style adventure set in two universes, with plenty of super-powered battles and recognizable classic comic book scenarios—and some iffy romance thrown in.
This can be read as a stand-alone story. Further adventure in the Temporary Superheroine series are also stand-alone stories.
