Publisher's Summary

Supervillains are murdering people in the streets, but yet superheroes are more concerned with gaining popularity than bringing the villains to justice.

These villains think they are above the law and that nobody can stop them, but they never planned for me. I’ll murder every one of them with my powersuit, traps, and sidekicks.

And if killing bad guys makes me a villain in the eyes of the heroes, well...I’ll destroy them too.

Definitely worth a read... er... listen.

First off the narrators are amazing!!! Hands down awesome, full freaking stop. After reading some of the reviews and listening to the book I can see where some people get there jaw bent out of shape... yes you can guess the basic, well entire rest of the book, when you finish the events at the Gala but so what? I thoroughly enjoyed the initial banter between Miles and Dynamo as a means of expressing counterpoints in one of the biggest and mind rending problems in nearly all superhero (especially comic) genres; why aren't the bad guys dealt with... PERMANENTLY. The book gives a credible, but not earth shattering, reason for it in their specific city at least. I want to say that most depictions of the un-powered are a total not-possible-in-reality type... but... even though far fetched I can see these types of people actually existing in our world. Anyway I did really enjoy the book was laughing out loud at points, and found myself routing for Miles, Norma and crew even if they aren't necessarily the "hero" type. Some complain that it's a slow starter but I find that it helps to build the world that they inhabit how flawed of a system exists and gives some reasonable credence to their actions. Definitely worth continuing and a re-listen.

I love the narrator's. No story.

the narration is 10 out of 10. with that out of the way, there is almost no story. did you read the description? Because that's the first half of the book. I have read similar books that got to the same point within the first half hour that this book took four hours to get to. after the first 10 minutes I was on the fence whether about I was really enjoying the book or found it utterly pointlessly boring. I meant i got halfway through the book before I realized that there is just nothing happening. boring one-dimensional characters. They never accomplished anything. it always feels like the story is going somewhere. then it's interrupted by pointless sex scenes.

Leans hard into the Mary Sue.

The performance was okay, but the material was juvenile wish fulfillment. Many missed opportunities. I doubt I would ever listen to this author again.

OP main character? Just what I was looking for!

This is absolutely a wish fulfilling Mary Sue super hero action story. The plot is just a means for the main character to be awesome. And you know what... That's OK sometimes! Sometimes I don't need a super well written, character driven and nuanced story. Sometimes I want to watch the a super well choreographed kung fu movie in which the main character goes from one enemy spawn location to the next for 90 minutes, kicking ass the whole way. this is like that but for audio books! mostly because the voice acting and cast is better than almost anything I've listened to before. It's a full cast of people and they are really into their part, really playing up the corniness. I love it I want more.

A private billionaire inventor fight crime story

Enjoyed the premise and the characters. Incompetent corrupt superhero team is like the seven in the boys. Like harem elements are minimal.

too graphic sex

while I liked the actual story well enough, the graphic sex scenes and Miles obsession with sex and women really killed the story for me.

Male Mary Sue meets bad fanfiction wanabe.

The base story is interesting, and if was written less like a horny teenage boys fantasy it might have been good. Also there is some rather explicit (and incredibly sexisist) sex scenes. The acting is great however. But overall I am glad I didnt spend actual money on this.
