Volume 3

As if life as an often-struggling superheroine weren't already hard enough, now costumed crime fighter Empowered discovers that another female superhero is ripping off and cashing in on her distress-prone persona!

Even worse, her relationship with live-in boyfriend (and semireformed Witless Minion) Thugboy has run afoul of an extremely literal set of "power issues"! Worse yet, a singularly bloodthirsty and ruthless ninja clan is gunning—no, make that shurikening—for Emp's best friend and karaoke partner, Ninjette! Can our unlucky but still plucky heroine prevail over all these obstacles, as well as the further threats posed by foreign fan-fiction outrages, her own supersuit's attempts to manipulate her self-esteem, and the revelation of (gasp!) her real name?
