This was very well done. From not overpowering an OC to having a not-so-happy ending to the humor and plot. I believe I read this a few years back but I didn't review it at the time; this story deserves way more reviews than nearly a hundred.

A very underrated story. I enjoyed reading this a lot.

Honestly, I'm...not sure how to take this story, Adrian. It's very well written, the voices feel right for the JLA members used (that I'm familiar with, anyway)...but the idea driving the story left me with mixed feelings.
On the one hand, the idea that a porn actress getting her meta-gene triggered and gaining some serious abilities - enough to warrant JLA interest immediately - is rather obviously crack and feels like a version of the plot conceit of "The Pro" (though that's a prostitute getting super-powers). Plus, the fun of the JLA and their spouses reacting to having someone like Kelly/Danni/Kinesis as a member helps sell the tale.
But on the other, the whole idea of "look at what happens when a pornstar gets picked for the Justice League!" gets flipped on its ear by having Kelly get ambushed and tortured by henchmen of an indirectly IDed supervillain, before dying of her injuries while refusing to give up JLA secrets. But I guess that's the point of all this, isn't it? Taking some crazy concept and actually selling it as a viable plot, humourous pokes at the idea of Batman not knowing porn aside.
So...a hearty "Great Job!" and all that.

Cant say I didnt see the ending (climax) coming. Its similar to one JL comic I read (dont remember which). But of course thats not the main point. The character is definitely the one of the few OCs i've found that could have been in a comic (if DC had the balls to do it). I do mean that as a compliment. The story itself could have gone wrong in dozens of ways but it didnt. And the fact that you take a volatile topic and fill it with humor that isnt crude makes it one of the best things i've read.
Also if you could have posted it as several chapters it would have been easier to read especially since im on a mobile. And i do have to ask why you're posting this in dc superheroes instead of justice league.

interesting, very good, well written, interesting plot/.
I will admit I would have rather seen her live and do some sequels but this was a very good story, as is.

Well written and thought provoking. Thank You.

Damn that ending gave me lots of feels.
Kelly was an extremely interesting character with a very unique ability. Her ending makes me feel bitter as unlike the major all-stars it's not some great sacrifice to save the world/universe.

I really loved this story. The Idea is actually amazing and I love how you pulled it off, starting light-hearted and getting grittier as the story progressed, as the respective characters either got over their preconceptions or didn't.
Thank you for sharing this

First, this fic brought out the funny feels. Then it brought out the sad feels. I'm gonna go cry now. Thanks for writing this.

Thanks for this. I liked how you managed to show both sides of the argument between wonder womand and kelly, e.g. talking about ww's experience with countless people who have been severely abused by the sex industry. A great and thoughtful fic.
