Blacklight

Your name is Lina Juarez, and when you discover that your friend Kathy has been poisoned with an amped-up version of methamphetamine, your super-powers—which had once belonged to a Shadowhawk villain called Blacklight—emerge. You’re a little freaked out: after all, your skin is blue and you can emit tendrils of shadow, create a skimpy little costume out of nothingness, and fly. It’s a bit of adjustment, and given that your friend has died, you’ve had a pretty rough first day in the super-hero business. But guess what, girlfriend? It’s only going to get worse—especially when you start pursuing the criminals who have put Amp on the streets. Not a bad beginning at all; the artwork’s a touch rough, but there are some nice Michael Golden-esque influences here and there.
