One of the greatest appeals about Faith is that she really is the every person superhero; someone who always dreamed of getting powers and becoming a hero, but doesn’t always get it right. This embodies her charm, that she is not perfect, rather she is fallible like us all. Her investigation and subsequent explosion it caused last week set the two neighboring houses on fire, which of course Faith feels responsible for. If this was not enough on her plate, in her civilian job her editor assigns her to review Torque’s current reality show. This spurs a quick reunion which goes nothing like the perfect idea Faith imagines it might be. Since when it rains, it pours, still being new to her hidden identity, the villains she has been chasing are able to easily track her and narrow down where she works. Its going badly for her, but at the same time the optimism Jody Houser has injected into her make us know she will pull through. Faith is such a wonderful character who is quickly proving she deserves her own ongoing.
