Synopsis: Just when low-level advertising agency employee Violet Espressa feels like giving up her job, she encounters a sinister mermaid goddess by the name of Siren. Siren promises everything: power, money, and superhuman speed. Violet takes up Siren's offer, sips from her pine green spring, and soon finds herself zooming through the day, impressing her bosses, and able to plow through piles of paperwork without stopping or even thinking all that clearly. But Violet's win steak fades quickly as she realizes her superhuman abilities only last for a short time. Siren snickers at her conundrum. "You must continue to submit to me," she deadpans, extending her arms in the pose that has made her famous. "And you must pay $3.79 every time." Violet quickly complies; she cannot give up this feeling. She is, after all, Espressa: the first caffeine-powered superhero.
