** [[spoiler: Word of God is that a later story in a 2016 ''Deadpool'' annual that guest-stars Gothic Lolita is set after ''Livewires'', and features blink-and-you'll-miss-them cameos from Social and Hollowpoint Ninja. It took more than a decade in real-time to find out about it, but Stem Cell's apparently managed to fix her surviving teammates.]]

More specifically, it's the story of "Stem Cell", an [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Ordinary Teenage Girl]] who wakes up one day with no idea why she's taking part in a raid on a Top-Secret, Quasi-Governmental R&D Project -- or why she's so unnaturally calm about everything -- until she vomits up a component for a {{BFG}} and learns that she's a mecha, and the newest agent of Project:Livewire. And it's the story of how she comes to terms with these facts.
