Meanwhile, Child Power representatives the Intrepid Shapiro and Fearless O'Toole try to find the prison's hidden location to help free the children. Written by Anonymous

18 February 2006 | by PennyGadgetWatchSee all my reviews

What if Emma AKA The Intrepid Shapiro had a Evil Foe who could bite & claw at the good that Intrepid Shapiro was. So The Hooded Fang The Arch Enemy Of Child Power which The Intrepid Shapiro was The Leader as a girl that she was so he made an evil girl that had the power to bite & claw the good that would stop evil. The Hooded Fang named the girl The Fox Girl cause he knew that a fox could to the job cause it's wise. So Emma see's her dear watch gos off while she's in class and asks to answer it out in the hall so she turn's into The Intrepid Shapiro to fight her new foe. So The Intrepid Shapiro found her new foe ready to bite at her. So we meet at last said The Fox Girl as she saw The Intrepid Shapiro you will not stop me Shapiro said as she feled a bite at her. Ow said Shapiro now I'll claw at you said The Fox Girl.
