A quiet superhero

By AVR, member

Aug 26, 2018: Delphic’s not the punchy type of superhero at all by powers or by nature. The story’s not about combat scenes but rather about investigation primarily with world building and characters in there too.

The writing style is a bit dry and detached, not unlike Drew Hayes’ Super Powereds, but that works better for the hero here than some of Drews heros IMO. He’s careful and considering rather than openly emotional and the plot matches that.

The hero has his flaws, some related to his secret identity and some not, and those haven’t been forgotten by the story as happens in some wish-fulfillment fantasies. I think it’s pretty good overall.
