Sounded cool, poorly executed.

Wow... I could not even make it 1 hour into the book. 1)The narrator made one if the female characters sound like an old man which really jarred me every time she spoke. 2)The interactions between MC and his first female companion are very forced. He is the son of a supervillain and she is kissing, hanging on him, and entrusting him with her life within 30 mins of meeting. This could be a plot device for later on but I probably wont find out. 3) My last and favorite strike for this book is a quote. "It worked! I just had to do what you said and focus harder." The development is so bad it's almost comical. I'm not actually sure if the author is trolling at this point. The story sounded very cool but God did it flop hard. Maybe get some beta readers or if you already have some you should get better ones because they arent doing good at all.

Fun

This book is a good, light read, though I did think the main character (Nick) was a bit of a Mary Sue. Without spoiling I can't say much more than that but he seemed too perfect. Once you set that aside it's a light hearted story with erotic elements that are handled well if a bit gratuitous (that's not a complaint, I knew they were coming, and were welcomed but story could have done without them just fine as well.) I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair review.

Very... Eh?... Its OK I Guess...

The narrator needs to learn to do women better. his "Wonder woman" type character sounded like a little old man. The story is super Mary-Sue. "I can't control my powers..." two minutes later "the kid could control his power, he just needed someone to believe in him... " GTFO. idk, it's been entertaining enough to keep me listening so far but I can tell that the author has a whole lot to learn.

This book hurts to read.

Anyone else think this is the worst super hero book? I mean are there more then just the six students and four facelty members at this school? Are there any test moderators? How many aspects to your powers do these super heros and villans still finding out mid fight. Nick just powers up and does stuff on the fly that is just stupidly over powered. Not that he shouldn't be over powered but he just does it on the fly with no training or effort. That is lazy writing. Why do they need to be trained in their powers if you get lines like this "I just had to do what you said and focus better Nick." Eric said. I have no word for how stupid that shounds. A person living their whole life with powers and training to control them just needed to be told to focus better. Eric is such a cringy character mostly for his yes man, fan boy, bromance, worship of Nick and immedietly friend zones himself with all of the girls in Nick's harem. I mean give the guy one comic vid nerd girl so we don't feel bad for him geez. Seriously if you want a fantastic super hero book read Super Powereds or Forge of Hephestis. If you want a great rom com YA story try Renegade X (if they ever release book 3) or Kid Sensation.

Narrator ruined the story for me

Narrator ruined the story for me. I didn't hear enough of the story to make a conclusion, but it didn't start well.

Mc is stupid(facts)

Mc must be stupid the way he acts, it makes no sense that he has god powers but cant knock somebody out? How cant this superman knock out his enemies? Why why why, it makes no sense it so wild. Wish the author would just give him more limits, So the story could make sense!!

Emo, Ero Teenage Boy Wish Fulfillment

If you are looking for any kind of more mature superhero story, this isn't it. I honestly couldn't finish it. From what I can tell the target demographic is young hormonal boys that are not popular in school. I couldn't make it more than an hour in before I decided to return this book. The main character's power set has to be one of the most idiotic things I've encountered. I'm clearly not the audience for this book. If you are that audience, then you might find it sufficiently enjoyable.

Uninteresting

This could've been great. I have "read" many great superhero books already but this seems to be one of the most boring and nonsensical out of them. I have trouble trying to relate with the characters feelings and they all seem to be very shallow. I find myself not caring if they live or die. I have so many complaints about this... but still, I don't feel like my credit was robbed. I did pass some time.

Superhero academy review- Albert Anness

I loved this book hands down, such a brilliant story with many great characters. I'm a big fan of superheroes and this was a great mark for the name, it actually reminded me of My Hero Academia. The characters were all very well written, relatable and likeable, they are also very realistic like that is how a number of American teens or young adults speak and behave and I like how it tells the story not just by our main protagonist but most of the cast and they talk about their views, feelings and experiences and the narrator played them perfectly

An interesting story

I went into this story blind and didn't realise it would have strong harem vibes. The over all story is interesting and well paced, The characters pov chapters are useful for deeper character development. The antagonists dont really get the same benefit. There are two unnecessarily explicit sex scenes but I'd venture a guess that judgement is down to personal interests.

Honestly unsure.

You see I loved Simon Archers books, all of them in fact not a single one I haven't liked so far. But the narration for this for is so bland and terrible I had to stop 2hours in. I really like the book, and Ron's narration doesn't do it justice. If anything the guy that did Forger of Worlds should narrate this also, as that audio was spot on. Well I'm gonna go and read Super Hero Academy so that I can forget how bad this was. Kind of hurts to admit that, considering I'm looking forward to book 2s audio in the hopes the narrator is different.
