Victory Girl, our young heroine.

Little Victory is a comic from Phillip M. Jackson (a.k.a. JollyJack), creator of the webcomic Sequential Art. It has been published by IndyPlanet, among others.

In a world where most of the world's superheroes work under the auspices of the United Nations, Vicky Powers, a.k.a. Victory Girl, is the newly deployed super to San Francisco (and thus the US West Coast).


Tropes:

  • Awesome by Analysis: Proto. Vicky's training seems to have included a course on threat assessment, allowing her to sum up what she's facing and adjust her tactics.
  • Badass Adorable: Vicky is a pretty red-haired, green-eyed heroine, who can level a building.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Victory Girl has to deliver three beatdowns in quick succession on her first day on the job. Between them, only Boomstick puts up anything close to a decent fight, and even then she isn't able to so much as injure Vicky.

  • Hired Guns: Boomstick, who was hired so her employers could gauge Victory Girl's powers.
  • Jerkass: Nayler may have some justification in feeling that a UN agency is stepping on DHS territory, but the way she takes it out on Vicky...
  • The Men in Black: Invoked by the English super organization, ODA.
  • Mission Control: Grazier on the villain side, though the second issue makes it clear he does fieldwork as well.
  • Most Common Superpower: Averted with Victory Girl herself, but does show up in others such as Agent Nayler and Boomstick.
  • Oh, Crap!: Boomstick gets a good one when she realizes that she did little more than tick off our heroine.
  • Obstructive Bureaucrat: Agent Nayler highly resents having to work with 'outsiders' for a job she feels her own agency (Dept of Homeland Security) should be handling it. As such, she does nothing without things being taken though all channels.

  • Power Glows: Seen when Victory Girl cuts loose.
  • Technically a Smile: The... thing Agent Nayler does with her mouth after she's been told by her superiors to "be nice" to Vicky.
