Publisher's Summary

Even D-list supervillains have to start somewhere.
Follow Cal Stringel's misadventures as he climbs to the lowest levels of supervillany in the prequel to the smash hit, Confessions of a D-List Supervillain. Angry that he wouldn't be known as the engineer who made Ultraweapon's force blasters, Cal resigns to chase after a bigger, better paycheck.
However, the Promethia Corporation isn't going to let him go that easily and sets out to make his life a living hell. Fed up at being pushed around by a company with an endless supply of lawyers and litigation, Cal sets out to build his own version of Ultraweapon's powered armor and take his revenge!
What Cal doesn't count on is just how hard this is going to be.
Along the way, he will make both friends and enemies and discover how hard hitting rock bottom can feel. Whether Cal is trying to smooth talk his way out of the prison for supervillains, haggle with nefarious employers over the price of his inventions, or battle with the Gulf Coast Guardians, he's in for one wild ride!
He'll need to learn that when money is tight that everything has a price - from the cost of making weapons for a psychotic speedster to how much to charge for taking the blame for a drunken rampage through Las Vegas.

BEING A VILLIAN IS NOT ABOUT WHAT YOU KNOW,

BUT ABOUT WHO KNOWS YOU
There was a lot I liked about this. It is entertaining from start to finish. It is intelligently written. The main characters are not handsome or beautiful, The main character falls in love with a girl more because of her brain and personality than her looks. I especially like the fact that the main character has no powers that he was born with. His powers come from a suit he invented. He has to have a side job to get money to make his suit. Not everything goes as planned. Some might get bored with the details in what it takes to make a suit, but other than that it is all good. I liked this aspect of the story as it made it seem more real.

Kafer is a professional whose star is rising.

Anti-hero beginnings.

I like how Cal thinks, he is devious and sarcastic, makes me laugh. While this book has funny parts the main emphasis is showing how Cal managed to have his life trashed so much that he became a D list supervillain. This book leaves you right where the Confessions of a D list Supervillain starts off. I had read Confessions quite some time ago and after listening to this book I went ahead and listened to it again. It was just as fun the second time around. If you’re a fan of the internet show of Dr. Horrible's Sing Along, you will like this. Narrator is perfect for the character Cal, shows his dry sense of humor.
