She was running. Running faster than she knew was possible.
And she wasn't even breaking a sweat.
She realised how cold it was, and with her hairless scalp, scant clothing and lack of footwear, she really should have been feeling the effects of the winter weather.

She wasn't evil. She'd never been evil. She was just different.
And there were other people like her. Well, one at least.

As she ran up a larger hill, she felt her feet leave the ground. Her captors yelled in anger as she flew away from them and soared up into the air...
Yep, one day she'd track Superman down. After all, they had a lot to discuss...
