Nexus is a webcomic hosted on Smack Jeeves about the heroic exploits of magical girl Alita. Having discovered her destiny of fighting evil, Alita has since become something of a local legend, keeping her identity a secret but still loving the attention her heroic persona receives. As she uses her powers to fight crime, more enemies begin to reveal themselves, but she wont be fighting alone. There are more people called by destiny, waiting to reveal themselves in the battle against evil.
