Synopsis: In the town of Anyville, crime is no longer a problem – having been wiped out by its resident superhero, the time-bending Fortuna.
But then … Sweeping in from across the Atlantic to fill this power vacuum comes the Headmaster, a criminal mastermind as brilliant as he is British. Our hero is forced to recruit an ally from amongst Anyville’s everyday, ordinary citizenry in order to even the odds against her new nemesis … … before a reign of terror is brought down upon the town, courtesy of the evil Headmaster and his – SCHOOLGIRLS OF DOOM!
