book cover The Flight of Morpho Girl is a short story set in the Wild Cards universe. If you haven't read the books until now, you won't know who the characters are. Even so, this story is so basic that it feels like "The Unsuccessful Mugging of Batman" or "Murder of Crows v Superman": predictable and stakeless.

That doesn't mean that the authors didn't do a good job, it's just that it is a short that brings nothing to the table other than the introduction of Morpho Girl's (Adesina, the teenager daughter of Amazing Bubbles) post cocoon form: a teenage girl with very tough butterfly wings. For me it's like a collectible item in the Wild Cards set, nothing more.
