Hotfoot by Graham Harrington

Guilty by Association 

Zach is a 22 year old chronokinetic who just got out of jail, after serving an 8 year prison sentence. Angry at the government for locking him away just because he COULD be exceedingly dangerous if he moved on from petty crimes, and disillusioned with the opportunities left for him he once again turns to crime.

Max is 18 and has everything going for him. He’s rich, famous, and also happens to be on one of the world’s most popular superhero teams.

It all comes crashing down when criminals take it too far, causing Max to lose sight of the line between justice and revenge. On the run from both villains and heroes, with only his powers and a badass suit his brother designed, Max will need all the help he can get.

Note: Hotfoot contains pervasive harsh language; also, some graphic violence.

Showing promise but in need of polish

By Deadpansmirk, author of Desert Steel

Dec 3, 2015: This review is part of a review swap, but I did my best to be impartial.

Hotfoot is a web serial following two characters, the superhero Maximum and the supervillain Zach.

The good: characters have good potential, and show at least some distinctness in traits and personality. The premise shows promise, the union of two disparate characters always making for some interesting conflict. The progression of the plot seems well paced, neither [more . . .]

It is clear from the start that Zach has special powers of his own, an ability to control time among other things, as the situation quickly ends poorly for him, landing him before a judge to be sentenced for his crimes.
