Publisher's Summary

Lenard Sikophsky’s father has been feeding him plutonium since the age of six in the hopes of making him the world’s first bona fide superhero. First, he must pass the unusual tests of manhood locked in the centuries old tomb, The Manaton, a secret relic passed down for generations. Falling in love with the beautiful, compulsively suicidal Laura Moskowitz doesn’t make his life any easier. But with the guidance of the Sikophsky men, the antiquated rulebook, and of course a healthy amount of plutonium, Lenard accepts his fate as an exactor of justice. . . . Twenty years later, Lenard’s son Nemo is introduced to the same destiny as his father, only this time the violent entity called THEY are in dangerous pursuit. Lenard’s life and the legacy of his family are put to the test when he is forced to defend everything he loves.

Great Commentary on Machismo Myth

Samuel Sattin's League of Somebodies starts off as what appears to be a superhero origin story of the first true superhero. But what unfolds is a multi-layered analysis of the male machismo and tearing down the commonly held myths of what it means to be macho. Sattin's uses three pivotal characters to deconstruct these myths to redefine what it means to be brave, strong, and fearless. John Keating's narration could have been better as he seems to think all Jews sound like they're from Brooklyn and he does a poor job of accentuating pivotal moments in the book. However, Sattin's story overcomes this minor shortcoming and delivers a subversive story that at first seems like your standard superhero story, but ends up turning commonly held ideals on its ear. Great first novel from Samuel Sattin!
