Inheritors by Megajoule

A clone of the greatest super ever, with only a fraction of the power. 

Gabe is a clone of the greatest superhero in the world. He lives in the gutters of Houston, hiding from agencies that would liquidate him, and trying to live up to the legacy that Megajoule left behind. He bleeds in dark hallways, he breaks bones over little girls sold into sex slavery.

He wonders: can he make a difference when he’s got a fraction of the power that Megajoule had? Or is he doomed to being a cheap imitation of the real thing?

Note: Inheritors contains some graphic sexual content, graphic violence, and harsh language.

Likewiser, he tries to stick to the [more . . .]

Superheroes With A Horror Edge

By Rhodeworks, author of Not All Heroes

May 18, 2018: Review of the first 12 chapters (episodes) and bonuses. NOTE: This review was written before the rewrite and therefore is not entirely accurate. Rewrite buffed the score from 4 to 4.5. Review adjustment pending.

IN SHORT: Inheritors feels like a solid entry into the arena of ‘vaguely young adult’ superhero web fiction. All in all, the fact that it operates so comfortably in the genre is both a positive and a negative. A strong beginning that I feel will only improve, [more . . .]

No title

May 24, 2018: note part of a swap

The story has a great premise, a vigilante is actually a clone of a superhero who is using his superpowers to save four innocent young girls from being sold in a human trafficking auction. It has an intense excitement to it, with lots of fast moving fight scenes, but yet the kindness and the humor of the main character, Gabe, the clone, shine through.

I particularly like [more . . .]
