While Samantha visits the injured Dr. Walters in the hospital, a unique brand of terrorist captures the building. Alone and unarmed, Sam must now contend with overwhelming odds to save the sanity of hundreds!
As I previously referenced in the description for my Expansion Anthology
preview, I'd been struggling with writing this particular chapter of The Big C's adventures for awhile prior to writing her entry in the anthology. But once I had written out the humorous prequel adventure detailing the costuming difficulties her powers presented, I realized that Samantha's stretchy hero attire was limiting the possibilities for the way she could wield her abilities.
From there I tried to conceive of a scenario that would force Samantha into action with only regular street clothes instead of her expansion-friendly Crusader costume. For some reason this made me think of Bruce Willis in the first Die Hard
film having to fight terrorists in his bare feet, so I figured I'd do my take on many of the common tropes found within that film and its numerous copycats.
The end result is one of my favourite scripts to date: a fast-paced adventure full of thrills, laughs, and (of course) expansions!
Plus, Mister Euphoric (this issue's antagonist) is now my favourite CC villain to date!
