Fatale: Cyborg super-soldier. Newest member of the world’s most elite team of superheroes, the Champions. She has enhanced vision, super strength, and a tactical computer hardwired to her brain. Also, awkward in social situations, and can’t use a chair if it isn’t steel-reinforced.
Doctor Impossible: Supervillain. Smartest man in the world. Suffers from a condition known as Malign Hypercognition Disorder, better known as Evil Genius Syndrome. He’s tried to take over the world twelve times… and counting.

Here and Now
“Striking and original… I had a great time watching all these needy super whatnots act out their angst… a very fun and fresh night.” – Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
“A summer treat not to be missed.” – Carole Moore, Around the Town Chicago
“There is a lot to love about this show… I want to see it again!” – Katy Walsh, The Fourth Walsh
“Christopher M. Walsh’s adaptation, directed by Paul S. Holmquist, hits the ground running… Walsh demonstrates his grasp of voice, a deft hand with dialogue as exposition and the ability to poke fond, good-natured fun at some of the excesses and tropes of a beloved genre.” – Christine Malcolm, Edge Chicago
