Fun story with decent lessons
I thought it was fun how they used superheros to show different personality traits that are desirable in leaders. It kept an interesting twist and kept me engaged.
The narrator's cadence was distracting at times, but after I got used to it I didn't notice much.
It made me chuckle quite a few times.
