Don't Date Your Nemesis... And Other Helpful Hints For The Modern Superhero

Summary

Maya Kurtis had always dreamt of vigilante justice and superhero status, it was why she signed up to the Sapient+ program to begin with. Problem is, this city keeps far better control over its superhumans than the places in the comics. Instead of sexy costumes and a name to strike fear into the criminal heart, she's just ID tag S+489002, additional details: translocation. Maya, to put it quite honestly, is just another fancy police weapon in just another anti-terrorist squad.

And then she meets him. Calls himself Card Shark, because it's not a gamble if you cheat, and when you're cheating the entire system, who better to ally yourself with than Maya? She’s an inside source and there's nothing that can keep her and her power out. He's got the outfit, the name, and he certainly strikes something into her heart, even if it's not always fear.

Sapient+ promised glory and recognition but they turned her into just another password protected computer entry. Is Shark about to be any different, or is he using her too? And doesn't a double life of villainy still seem a little too far from her original dreams?
