In a world where birth control literally gives women superpowers, five broke-ass supergirls unleash their special abilities while banging their heads against the glass ceiling of a failing job market
Henna Sodhi @mendiflower
An impulsive dreamer with a million ideas per second. Very few of them are good. The ones that are good are (arguably) brilliant (by her own assessment.) She dreams beyond her means and never backs down from a big elaborate plan but neglects to do her laundry. And her dishes. And her taxes. And all the other basic human tasks.
Kelsey Rideout @kelsey.rideout
So tightly wound, her vibrator has a timer on it. She never misses an item on her to-do list and holds everyone else to her same rigid standards of perfection so she's disappointed a lot. She's an emotional powderkeg who stays calm by compulsive exercising and repressing her emotions.
Zoe Towne @zoe.elixabeth
Penny has never known a day in her life without money, and her trust fund is the source of envy among her circle of broke college friends living off ramen and dreams. But she's beginning to realize that her family thinks helping her financially affords them the right to call the shots on her life and she has to start fighting for her independence
Idylia Hachi @idylia_
Justice has a strong moral compass and a fierce belief in the law. She's a brilliant legal student who could have a bright future as a lawyer, if only she didn't suck at tests. She's memorized the Criminal Code and the Geneva Conventions but she's taken the LSATs four times and tanked it every time. But her passion and knowledge for law enable her to help stop her friends from signing their lives away on insane contracts,

A student for life because she fears the real world, Wisdom is on an endless quest for knowledge. She's a little neurotic and always second guesses herself, but it's that perseverance that will one day win her a Nobel Prize for curing degenerative brain disease. All she has to do is survive the misogynistic Ivory Tower.
BITENERIUM (AKA ZOMBEAGLE)
Pawlie the Beagle @zombeaglepawlie
Wisdom's trusty biohacker garage lab sidekick. Wisdom rescued Bitenerium from a lab but the beagle has a bit of an anger management problem and delusions of grandeur. She's actually not even delusional - this little beagle will one day rule us all.
Alex Henkelman @alexhenkelman
Bobby is Zayda's ally in art school. A maniac enabler who accepts her insanity and helps her see it through. He was a child star on a local kids television sketch show with Alanis Morissette and he's been struggling to make life measure up to his glory days ever since. He did the show several years after Alanis, so he never even did a scene with her. He's never even met her. But he will. He definitely will. One day.

Some people study medicine to help people. Bryson Hunter was taught by his father that doctors make a ton of money and have nice cars and girls like to sleep with doctors. Basically a frat boy in a lab coat, he was kicked out of his internship at a plastic surgery clinic because his bedside manner was a little too much bed and not enough manners. Now he works for big pharma.
