Caped by Darius Brasher Free read Ä 100 To pursue a hero’s cape in superhero school a frightening place of grueling humiliation intense combat training and deadly testsTheo soon finds that even just a potential superhero gets an archenemy The problem is Theo’s doesn’t want to just defeat himHis archenemy wants to kill hi. This book hits pretty much every cliche possible It s like the author watched Starship Troopers a few too many times swapped the marines for superheroes and bugs for villains Seriously the first 40% of the book is a near exact scene for scene recreation of Starship Troopers up to the basic training bits So much just doesn t make senseWhy would there be a law where meta s could NEVER use their powers unless they were a licensed hero That would be a completely unenforceable law The obvious outcome would be people that don t want to be under the thumb of the government would band together and just take out the heroes guerilla war styleWhy would they be trained in military style basic training and AITTech school That type of training is meant to foster teamwork and prepare for hierarchic command structure

Caped by Darius Brasher Free read Ä 100 The best time to kill a superhero is before he becomes oneScrawny seventeen year old Theodore Conley shocks himself and everyone else by tossing three big bullies around like they are wads of paper and Theo is aiming for the trash canNow that he has superpowers suddenly everyone expects T. I m a huge fan of superhero fiction as anyone who checked my Goodreads book lists would be able to tell or you know has read the Supervillainy Saga That means I m always looking forward to a new series which is both established as well as good This is certainly the case with the Omega Superhero which has four installments at the time of the publication of this review as well as being goodThe premise is Theodore Conley is a 17 year old living in a world where superheroes are real and the product of a X men like meta gene After accidentally throwing some bullies superhumanly far he discovers he is a Omega level superhuman An attempt to live a normal life goes disastrously wrong and Theodore ends up forced to go to superhero boot camp in order to train with his new abilities I happened to really like this book s premise and it reminded me a bit of Starship Troopers as well as the short lived Avengers spin off AVENGERS THE INITIATIVE It was about a bunch of kids put in a mandatory boot camp by the government to train to be superheroes and how that screwed them up or made them better This is a far less cynical take on the subject and we get to see Theodore prosper under the guidance of the superheroes there instead of crumbleI was a real big fan of Smoke and Myth Theodore s Kinetic best friends that he makes at the camp Smoke has the usual protagonist s background of being a supervillain s daughter and Myth is just a big bundle of fun They all play off well against one another and have a very believable dynamic that I think makes the book readable at the worst of times and greatly entertaining at the bestThe villain of the book Iceburn is somewhat generic but he exists primarily as an obstacle for Theodore to overcome rather than a meaningful antagonist I m interested in who hired Iceburn to go after the protagonist though the law of drama indicates it s probably the one other supervillain mentioned in the book who would cause massive personal drama to our heroes budding relationship For the most part Caped is a very solid traditional superhero tale about great power and great responsibility It s a coming of age story where he goes through an arc of trying to put down his own selfish motives and embrace a higher calling without being cheesy I kind of regret one of the major influences in Theodore s life is killed early in the book because I really liked their relationship and would have been interested in the continuing development of itIn conclusion if you re looking for a solid Spiderman meets Superman esue story of good versus evil as well as what a realistic hero might look like then this is a decidedly optimistic non cynical book for you910

Caped by Darius Brasher Free read Ä 100 Heo to do great things He doesn’t want to do anything great though It’s too much work and too dangerous Unless it’s safe and involves Theo finally getting a girlfriend he’s not interestedTheo gets danger than he can handle when a supervillain attacks In self defense Theo is forced. I wasn t sure whether to give this book two three or four stars this is a review of the three book boxed setIt was average but could have been great with editingThe basic premise is intriguing 17 year old boy accidentally discovers his super powers Heroes must be registered The story is set in an alternate Earth with different history than our EarthThe editing isn t the worst I ve come across However sometimes there was a little backstory and description than necessary which slowed the pace down There were also three pages of the book just about the main character growing sweet potatoesThe paragraph structure was also too blocky The story feels a little clunky because the paragraphs are not broken down by actionsSome elements in the story were not believable In the beginning of the story there were two black bullies and one white bully who are football players While it is possible for bullies to come in all shapes sizes and colors there isn t much bullying in college The selection process usually gets the bullies out of the system or by that time their brains have matured Their skin color also could have been alluded to in a less direct manner This is just bad descriptionThere are also too many mentions of Jamesisms The main character s father keeps referencing the bible or the main character thinks about this While I m not opposed to a character or his relatives being characters of faith it did feel a little much in terms of story pacingThere were several other inaccuracies in the story too such as the character having to clench his fist when blood was drawn You should be relaxed for thatSuperhero power was also ranked as Alphas Betas and Omegas with Omegas being the most powerful and Alphas being the weakestA Chinese female character that was born 75 years ago was also called Liam iaolian As far as I know Chinese women born during that time would not have English names especially male names I don t know if that name used to be female though Also iao Lian sounds like a first name so that means this person didn t have a last nameInaccuracies like this did slightly get in the way of the story so it could have used research or common sense That was four story inaccuracies in the first 7% of the boxed setPlot Uniueness One starSuperhero powers One starCharacters One starPacing and paragraph structure Zero starsInaccuracies Zero starsTotal ThreeFive Stars
