Bio-Pic to Feature New Mega-Star, Hope

A rainbow shimmer—found cowering in a corner
of Pandora's box. Hope. Great wings, they said,
but the look too ingénue. The bioengineers are on it:
We can re-make you; silnylon and aerogel here,
titanium there
. Marketing is testing avenge,
, and harpy, in titles with an upbeat spin.
The ills and evils have long since flown off,
or lumbered away. Hope's new publicist, Glory,
declares, "She hasn't hit her stride yet; ethereal,
yet charismatic, Hope has devoted fans. Call her
a serious dreamer—not your typical starlet."
