The story, however, was good. It starts with a boy with the power to spit acid deciding to join the supervillians instead of the superheroes, and his reasons for doing so. I guess the thing I liked the most was the reasoning behind it all, which is very plain. The characters kind of describe themselves like a psychologist would, example (not really in the story, but for simplicity): "I would rather join the team of villains because I've had a bad childhood and I really don't like people." Ok. Thanks for sharing and keeping it real.
The overall premise is that super-people can gain different powers throughout their life and eventually be able to become like a god. The powers they have are reflected in the color of their iris, which I thought was a good touch. Of course, the heroes and villains are often at odds with one another, but in a somewhat subdued way, like, they would be friends if they could be, or if they hadn't had a bad/good childhood or didn't value/not value human life. Very quirky.
Like I said, I did like the book, but perhaps someone who is more interested in superheroes would like it more, maybe even love it. Worth checking out if you like comic books, stories about superheroes, and books about evil vs. good.
