She toils at chemistry in all of her spare time until she discovers a chameleon hormone that enables her to change her height, weight, complexion, hair color, eye color, and apparent age. Despite some good advice from Mary Marvel, Lucy makes poor use of her new ability, and complicates her own life in unforeseen ways, losing her job and her apartment, and getting arrested for murder, and losing her boyfriend.
