Panel 1:

Ada and her friend, Sierra sit at a tall bar table in a fairly nice looking bar. Both are drinking cocktails

Sierra: You signed up as a villain?

Ada, looking sheepish: I don’t know, it just sounded more exciting. Plus this way the strangers I’m meeting have sworn to uphold the law.

Panel 2:

Over Sierra’s shoulder. Ada is looking down at her drink

Sierra: Does that mean you’re going to be committing crimes? Kidnapping babies and snatching purses?

Ada: No I mean...I don’t want to hurt anyone, I just thought it would be fun to plan heists and make dramatic monologues. Bond villains always get the best speeches

Panel 3:

Same framing as panel 1

Ada: Anyway, no one is going to pick me as their arch enemy. My powers aren’t even very useful. I’m just worried I’m wasting my time at a boring office job

Panel 4:

Over Ada’s shoulder. Sierra is mock-frowning at Ada

Sierra: As your normal, non-super powered coworker: ouch! I think you have to get me the next round for that jab.

Panel 5:

Ada walks away from their table towards the bar

Ada: Round two coming right up
