This part of the scene almost made me go back and re-write the whole fire part, because it was so difficult to 'burn' the clothing. I never did get it quite right, and after a while just had to go with what I could do with my limited UV Map editing skills (and boy, are they limited). Realistically, of course, Hothead's attack should have burned Abby's clothes completely off her, but as this is a family-friendly book, and Abby is under age, I couldn't quite do that...

Now why couldn't she be of age so we could burn her clothes off? lol
For burnt, torn, dirty, or bloody clothes use Hybrid Grunge shaders.

I did use them but it did not come out 'severe' enough, so I added to it.

You can add multiple layers of grunge in the layered image editor.

Hm. That I did not try.

At this point I have moved on to Iray, which works differently. Sooner or later there will be new Iray shaders that do a better job of this.

It really bites when the bad guys defines you before you can. This can only end well, right? lol

The bad guys have made an assumption that comes from living in a world full of superheroes and supervillains. If someone has powers and interferes in a super-crime, she must be a superhero.

Yeah, I think you made a great decision regarding the burnt clothes and keeping things family friendly.

The only other option was to change Hothead's powers to something that would not burn her. But I really liked the fiery image of her *seeming* to burn up and then not being harmed. Plus I needed an attack that clearly should have maimed or killed her, and she survived it unharmed, so that the villains would know she had superhuman powers.
