Her name was Mia Johnson. She lived in Oakland, California and was 14. She was considered a goth, emo, socially inactive. The reason...well that's exactly who she was. She had dark black hair, black lipstick, and usually wore black clothing. Her mother was a fast food worker barley gaining enough money to support Mia and herself. Mia never saw her father although he called Mia from time to time to ask how she was doing. Since her parents got divorced Mia never was the same. She was suicidal, and attempted to runaway several times. The crazy thing is what make many people insane made Mia would feel useful and powerful.
Day 1: The Beginning A New Life
Mia was on her way to the bus stop and noticed that her nail was turning black. She wondered exactly what was happening. She didn't feel any pain but was worried. She then continued to go to the bus stop and decided to ask the nurse when she got there. When she was on the bus she looked at her nails again and noticed that they were normal. She began to worry even more and wondered if she had somehow got ink stuck in her blood stream or was dying. Mia went to the nurse and found that nothing was wrong with her but she should go to a doctor. When Mia told her mom she said that she was probably still tired and that she should get some sleep.
Day 2: Our Destiny has Come to a start
When she woke up the next day her nails were normal. She said to herself that she would put it aside. 2 hours later there was a disaster in the world. The evil M.A.R.S was an international terrorist robot that created The Iron Menace. A machine that could mimic abilities and had superhuman strength as a given. The president stated a warning to the east bay that The Iron Menace is coming and all military defenses have been destroyed. Mia called her father frequently to ask if he was okay. Mia’s mother had pulled Mia from school and when they got home she said they needed to talk. She told Mia that her father didn’t leave because of relationship issues, but for her safety. Mia asked what she meant. Her mother said that her father was a mutant with the ability of space-time manipulation. He went to the future and saw one that included me and your father’s murder. We didn’t want you to suffer through losing a mother and father so he thought the best thing for you was to leave and that it may somehow help the future. Mia asked if her mother had any abilities and she said yes. She said she was a shadow walker which was a rare ability to let people control ones shadow. Mia was about to tell her mother about the nails but a man in a suit broke in and asked for Mia.
Day 3: Kill Count: 2
The man in the suit came rushing at Mia until her mother interfered. She went tried to go into the man’s shadow but he stuck her with a needle. She passed out and fell to the floor. Mia enraged sw her nails turn black and sharpened. She lunged at the man and stabbed him in the heart. Then, another man came in and tried to shot her but she dodged the bullet and slashed his throat. She looked down at the men and then at her mother. She took the phone and called her father. The phone was out of service. She came to the realization that this was the future that her father saw. Her mother wasn’t passed out she was dead. She decided to try and find the men who killed her parents. That day she became The Menace.
