    In the story comic book legend Stan Lee calls "spellbinding" and "totally original," Thom Creed has secrets. For one, like his father, he has super powers. Also, he's been asked to join the League—the very organization of superheroes that spurned his dad. Then there’s the secret Thom can barely face himself: he's gay. But becoming a member of the League opens up a new world to Thom. There, he connects with a misfit group of aspiring heroes, including Scarlett, Typhoid Larry, and Ruth, a wise old broad who can see the future. Like Thom, these heroes have things to hide....

    Overall

    Glad I didn't listen to the haters. This is a really fun, well-written comic story. It basically takes us through a young man learning powers. The fantasy super-hero world does a nice job of mirroring his own experiences as a gay young man. There is really nothing objectionable subject-wise. Some reviews had me worried that it would be too raunchy. There is nothing raunchy about it. It seems very honest and is true to what a young teen would be feeling about love regardless of whether he or she is gay or not. It's about finding one's place in this world and giving what was given to you by your family to make yourself great.
