In the not-too-distant future, robots have made our lives a lot easier: they help clean our kitchens, drive our cars, and fight our wars--until they are turned into efficient machines of death and destruction by a sentient artificial intelligence buried miles below the surface of California's Silicon Valley.

The only one who can stop these robots is a ditzy, empty-headed dancer in a nightclub in San Francisco, California, Alanna Nolan, who gains superpowers, and immortality, after being stung by a radioactive jellyfish while she was swimming. When the robots begin a war of genocide against mankind, Alanna quits her job and takes a job as a reporter for a San Francisco television station, KSFO-TV, and is assigned to cover the Human-Robot War.

But the job as a reporter is just a disguise that hides another identity that Alanna Nolan adopts. The dancer has become the superheroine "Go-Go Girl", a superheroine with superhuman strength, superhuman speed, telescopic and night vision, incredible hearing, extrasensory perception, and the ability to transform from one identity to another. "Go-Go Girl" combines dancing with combat, which becomes the technique "dance-fighting".

But Go-Go Girl has a lot to do if she is going to save mankind. First, she must overcome her ditziness and empty-headedness, learn to use her powers and abilities, and properly master her "dance-fighting" technique.

Go-Go Girl is aided in her fight against the robots by some unusual and unlikely allies from the Castro District San Francisco who have powers of their own. They form a team called "The Castro Team" which is led by Go-Go Girl.
