If anything, and this is not really super accurate, but some of the superheroes reminded me of "Captain Hero" from the drawn together cartoon. Just...narcissistic and stupid to a degree that poked fun at modern superhero conventions.
Definitely worth a read, even if it ends up not being your thing.
Now to what I liked:
This book is insane. It starts big and just keeps ramping up the action and ridiculousness. The best part though is that it isn't your typical super hero formula. The main character doesn't swoop in, have some obviously trumped up struggle, and the save the day and the girl at the end. There is no posturing, no trying to decide whats wrong and whats right. There is some romance going on, but it in NO way the boring old formula of boy saves girl. The characters themselves are so well constructed. I read a lot (read A ****LOAD) of fantasy/sci fi and these are some of the most memorable and interesting characters. They are not just there to cary the story, or to push the plot. They are explored and defined, in a way that makes you care about what they say or what they do.
The best part about the whole story in my opinion is the main character. He is flawed, a little bit broken, and makes you want to know more and more about him. His problems are not solved or wrapped up in a nice little bow so we can all feel better, they are made prevalent through his actions and reactions. His character growth is well done and not forced, but it is not one straight line as in so many books. There are ups and downs throughout the story, but that makes it just that more relatable.
tldr: READ THE BOOK ITS GOOD I PROMISE
