F.O.R.C.E. Files: Go Girl
Go Girl is the speedster of the team, but I wanted to make a speedster unique to the team. The name dated back to my childhood days, but I didn't really ever put much thought past that name. With my goals of a diverse unit built around the actual makeup of modern American society rather than the homogenized teams of so many comics, I decided to create a female superhero that in many ways mirrored the relationship between myself and my wife.
Yes, I got just a tad autobiographical here. Go Girl is an African American woman raised in Baltimore, married to a small town Caucasian man. They've been together since both attended Towson University and have two children. The birth of her first child brought Go Girl's retirement, but as revealed in her premiere story, a horrible incident in the recent past brought her back into action. She works with F.O.R.C.E. under the condition of continued anonymity, making her one of the very few members of the team with a continued secret identity.
If you're intrigued by Go Girl or just want to read a piece of great super powered fiction, “A Day with the Family” continues F.O.R.C.E. with another exciting adventure for just 99 cents. Pick it up on Amazon Kindle or for multiple formats at Smashwords.
