Over the course of a school year, though, room 117 will experience mayhem, destruction - and maybe even a shot at redemption.
For some, hopes, dreams, and ambitions come easily. Not so much for Lilith. Created by one of the most feared supervillains, Shadowmind, she has no past of her own and only a passing familiarity with the world as it is.

There, she encounters heroes and villains alike, including those who brought her maker to justice.
