To be fair, she was not the only Super having an off day. In the vast depths of the ocean, Tsunami was a really big fish. Or, at least, she smelled like one most of the time. Even without her telepathic ability to manipulate most bodies of water, she was a monster to take down in melee combat. She liked to think it was the fear of being devoured by her enhanced jaws that kept most poachers out of the arctic during migration season.

That also created a certain reputation preceding this buffed out leopard seal. Her alter egos marine biology career was not run on food stamps, and there was always good pay for power crazed maniacs in the world. The dark underworld of business or politics expected nothing less but pure, efficient, professionalism

Lab equipment, boxes, and burners flew everywhere, breaking and even turning on in the process.
