In the closing years of the 21st century, Carbon Girl and Carbon Man live a superhero lifestyle based almost entirely on carbon, which creates a strong bond between them. But they have very different personalities. This book is the first about their adventures and includes conflicts with AI, zombies and space exploration. It contains fantasy violence and non-explicit sex and is not suitable for younger readers. It stays as close to feasible technology as is reasonably possible, but inevitably, some artistic license is needed. Carbon Girl was bulletproof by being silent, very agile, and very hard to hit. Carbon Man was bulletproof by being bulletproof. “That big black thing that we’re heading on intercept course towards probably weighs about a billion tons. It’s bigger than us” hinted G’din. When a sexy woman puts on a figure enhancing cat-suit and lethal stilettos, usually people fall in line. Just in case they didn’t, she also took her whip. Now she felt right. She was Carbon Girl again. She was dressed to kill. No, today, they would probably form a queue to be killed by her.
