Like millions of other kids, Jim grew up wanting to be a superhero. Unlike most of his contemporaries, however, Jim actually had the goods: a plethora of super powers that would have been the envy of any meta on the planet. But when his tryout with the Alpha League - the world's premiere group of supers - goes disastrously wrong, Jim basically becomes an outcast.
Two years later, Jim is still bitter about what happened to him. However, he soon finds himself the centerpiece in an odd turn of events that gives him a second chance at his dream. But nothing is as easy as it sounds, as Jim soon discovers. Among other things, he's made an enemy of a prospective super teammate, he's being stalked by an unknown pursuer, and a shadowy cabal bent on world domination has identified him as the only obstacle to their plans.
It's a lot for one super to handle, even with a smorgasbord of abilities. But if saving the world were easy, everyone would do it.

Excellent work. if you enjoy cheesy action, dumb jokes, and slapstick comedy mixed with perfect narration. listen to this.
ps just look for this narrator for a good listen.
My friend Riordan suggested I try this book and I am glad I did. I chose the audible version and the performance was well done.
This book plays heavily on many classic tropes, but they are well done and enjoyable. As a young adult novel I would consider it appropriate for ages 11ish and up. I recall a curse word and two violent depictions of death or dismemberment. Neither of which is gone into in details that would give nightmares.
Great job and I will be getting the rest of this audible line.
it was a fun book. the narrator did a good job. i just would've liked for there more violence and maybe a nice love scene.
I like the voice the author had for his main character, I found him to funny and very down to earth. However sometime I felt like the decisions he made were very foolish, as if they were made just to push the story along at slower parts. All in all it was worth the "read".
