-Buildup of his own empire from scratch
-Villain doing good superhero stuff with villain's flare to it
-Light harem action
-Character growth/leveling (specifically litRPG style, some will like others won't)
-Interesting abilities (typical of the super genre)
Only things that really nag me after reading this story:
-Start premise was a bit weak, but it was brief and we moved on so that's good
-The end. It was done poorly/rushed. Should have had another 10-15 pages setting everything right and tying up loose ends.
-The main character getting his hands dirty there at the end. Should have stayed true to form and found a way to get the job done using his own unique talents/characteristics. (Everything after reaching the elevator bottom was garbage.)
-Who was really the bad guy here? Yeah we kind of got a vague answer, but the point to the conflict was really vague and glossed over. He's just always under attack for what turns out to be a pretty thin reason that's answered in basically 2 or 3 sentences on a random page towards the end.
Despite those few flaws, this is really one of the best books of it's type I've read in a year or two. Not many come out with with these plot elements that are done well. (Similar recent non-super examples would include the Stavin Dragonblessed series by Loren K. Jones, ALICE by Charles Lamb, Wild Wastes by Randi Darren, and Destiny's Crucible by Olan Thorensen.) Keeps you turning the page for sure. Short enough for a half-day read.
I don't generally like most "super" stories, but this one was very solid. I'll buy the next in the series without waiting for reviews.
On a possibly highly irrelevant note.
This story very strongly reminded me of something I forget I read many years ago. It was a total crap sex fiction on some site... somewhere. Guy got power to change bodies and stuff. Makes harem. Cures people for cash. Ends up with a cult and fortress full of seemingly brain dead females wanting to have sex. From what I recall as awful as the heavily chauvinistic story was... it had better pacing then spontaneously rich, with a fortress, and army, seemingly, overnight... The ending for Super Sales in Super Heroes is also not satisfying. Just BAM! kicked the enemies ass BAM! happy ending........ that's it. :/
Get it. Read it. Don't wait, don't think about it, just do it. This book was like reading a video game, but better. The alternative history/urban fantasy base works in a unique way for Super Sales, not just giving you a "what if" scenario, but giving it to you with a twist that works perfectly. The RPG and even FPS elements were strong, driving the plot and action, and the characters were all unique, even lovable. Yes, I have my favorites.
Frankly, I'd absolutely LOVE an open world PC game based on this book. You'd end up with a multi-genre game with near infinite replayability. I know I'd never stop playing it. As it is, I just finished the book and am immediately considering reading it again, starting now. I've never enjoyed a book so much that I started rereading it immediately.
Thank you, Mr. Arand. You've got a masterpiece with Super Sales on Super Heroes. Please, please write a sequel. I'll be waiting patiently and looking forward to it.

There are a few problems that the author could improve on, yes. Yet for some reason I couldn't stop reading it in spite of all that and other than those foibles I enjoyed most of it.
Like I said, guilty pleasures. I'm likely just indulging my immature side that just wants to imagine having a incredible ability, going from nobody to leading a major power and being surrounded by beautiful young women who'd do anything for me. If that appeals to you too you may enjoy it. So long as you aren't too bothered by the idea of a slightly immoral protag who mainly focuses on how other benefit him unless certain others prick his conscience and make him do the right thing, but would otherwise calmly dispose of anyone who inconveniences him. It also occasionally gets graphic in the violent parts. There's no real sexual content though, for those who are bothered by that. If you find all that offensive though, or are looking something deep and based firmly in real life values and morality, then you'll probably rate it low. Don't say I didn't warn you.
All of the decisions in this book and advancements in his slowly forming empire are made by slave heroes he bought at auction., of course they're all girls and somehow he is forming a harem. (I cannot fathom why). If I could perfectly describe the main character I would say he is the NPC you come across in video games every once and a while that grants power-ups, mostly irreverent but helps the hero of the story advance further.
I really enjoyed it and with what seem a number of unfinished threads, expect another in the series.
Needless to say... It has a fun, unique and fairly interesting setting and a decent lead character that matches it. The supporting characters were great with a certain girl making me smile every scene she was in. The book is far from perfect, but for the price I would recommend this to anyone who likes a bit of sci-fi, fantasy, superheroes and a dash of romance (granted not massively developed romance).
A fun take on the genre.
