first fight

Superheroine going into her first fight. . .

And I really stinted on this part of the outline.

Fortunately, I realized she had had NO training at all so I had best simplify to the maximum to make her useful. Reduce my vague "attackers" to a lone one. Give that attack mirrored armor to cope with the fighting power of the superhero with her, and thus not be otherwise ready to fight.  (Over confidence!) And -- I think she's going to change her line of attack.

Ah, the life of a first draft!
