closest flames began to leap into her. Stunned she just watched as she
absorbed the entire inferno with out as much as burning an eyelash. Her fire
powered mutation was revealed.
The fire department was surprised when they arrived and saw no trace

fellow student said, "Wow totally Kozmic babe!" Thus was born the Kozmic
