Faith finds herself in Los Angeles where the city is under siege by robots, aliens, monsters, and even worse, celebrities. She is an aspiring reporter by day and a crime-fighter by night. She tackles every obstacle with confidence including deadlines at work, a long-distance boyfriend, and collecting missing back issues in her extensive comics collection. However, Faith is about to collide with an up-and-coming super-villain who is bent on destroying her once and for all. But who is her new foe and can they actually render her powerless?
