    I can only recommend the story. It had me reading on the edge of my seat, heart pounding and sweating, because of the suspense.
    It’s also kind of dark. Trigger warnings apply.Report

        I’m two “arcs” in now and enjoying it. The protagonist’s pretty clearly putting herself in a bad position, but given her youth and emotional state her decisions are understandable. I’m liking the creative superpowers.

        If you want another superhero story that deals with a lot of the issue overlooked by typical superhero comic books, I’d highly recommend the webcomic Strong Female Protagonist. It’s about a young woman with super-strength and invulnerability who’s struggling with the realization that those powers are limited in their ability to substantially improve the world, and who’s quit super-hero-ing to go to university. The characters and relationships are nuanced and well-drawn (and the actual drawing increases dramatically in quality over the course of the comic) and does a great job delving into a lot of the issues around superheroes. It’s also quite idealistic, which is a nice change from the usual deconstructions.

        It shouldn’t take nearly as long to read as Worm, and updates on Tuesday and Fridays. It’s currently on its fifth book/chapter.
