~The Plans of a Supervillain~

As an individual, wife, and mother, her plans were simple and straightforward. As a thief, they were contingency plans for every step of any plan she made. As a supervillain, her plans had plans and not all plans had the same end goal but all of them happened at the same time.

What could she do? Simple and straightforward was what superheroes did. Think the same, and they would catch on to her plans and thwart them, which could be disastrous, because among her supervillain plans was always a few meant to keep her husband safe while he went after their real target.

So it was fine if everyone else thought they were just a supervillain with the lame hat who always failed. Their best plans were the ones that no one even knew existed. They were also the most tedious to plan and carry out, and the most exhilarating.

She checked her disguise, braced herself, and stepped out into view. With her appearance, the show started, and for the sake of the many other plans that appearance set into motion, she was going to make the show spellbinding.
