The Neon Amazon
by Eugene Kirk
Eight-foot-tall Tina Thompson has to make the biggest decision of her life.
Once a villain in a league of bio-augmented professional wrestlers, Tina now survives in the slums of São Paulo as a drug lord’s enforcer.
All Tina wants is a normal life, but with millions in debt and a body that requires constant nano-treatments to stave off deadly side effects, she doesn’t have a lot of options. When a collection run goes bad, things get worse. The mercenaries she’s just killed have a boss, and he wants payback. He offers Tina a choice: die, or work for him in exchange for a permanent fix to her enhancements.
Now, Tina must decide if her freedom is worth the price. All she has to do is give up on her dream of normalcy, become a villain for real . . . and blow up a starship.
When She-Hulk meets Dark Matter, expect some bodies to fly.
