THE LEGION OF NOTHING

Pow! Slam!

The narrator, Nick, is endearing and as a reader I found myself feeling sorry for him even as I cheered him on—no one likes to have their destiny picked for them, and to be a "normal" teenager stuck following in your grandfather’s footsteps as a super hero? Not an enviable task when you think about it.
