Not everyone chooses to be a supervillain. Lisa Bennet is just an eighteen year old girl living under her the thumb of her drunken abusive dad. Then, one night she finds herself with the power to control plants and with it, the power to change her life. She becomes a fugitive from justice, on the run one step ahead of ruthless superpowered police. Despite the label of “villain” she wants to be a good person—but just how far will she go to achieve her goals?

Note: Specimens contains some graphic violence and harsh language.
