The story follows Ada, a gay man, who comes in contact with a large, spikey meteor which, when ingested, turns him into the WonderWoman-esque superheroine Zsazsa Zaturnnah. Zsazsa soon finds herself in conflict with the man-hating Queen Femina from Planet XXX and her fellow Amazonistas. The writer, Carlo Vergara, is writing the sequel, ''Zsazsa Zaturnnah sa Kalakhang Maynila'' (''Zsazsa Zaturnnah in Metro Manila'')

Added DiffLines:

* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: The Amazonistas had a very compelling reason to rebel against their male captors. Outright killing them off was, understandable, given what they'd been through. Trying to [[{{Gendercide}} wipe out every male in the universe]], good or evil, was [[{{MoralEventHorizon}} not acceptable]].
