Travis Colfax was born into the hero life. His parents were pillars of the community, and he became a sidekick at the age of nine. He is the only member of the family not to manifest a power. His sister has extraordinary speed. His brother can talk to the dead.
Seven years in he's starting to have his doubts about continuing a career in heroics. Plagued by his own failures, he's giving serious thought simply to hanging up the mask for good and moving on. If only he knew what he wanted to do with his life.
The rest of the hero community grows distracted by an alien threat, and they overlook a far more human danger lurking in New Port Arthur. A few missing gang members and a rambling madman leads Travis to stumble upon a calculating, lethal scientist whose plans have so far eluded the notice of the authorities despite a trail of corpses left behind.
As the trajectory of Doctor Omicron's plan unravels, Travis discovers he must find himself and muster what help he can before the amoral researcher unleashes an even greater danger on an unsuspecting world.

A slightly different take on superheros
I would definitely recommend this good to friends as its interesting. I hate book where I can guess what is going to happen at the two or three chapters ahead so it nice to find something that keeps me guessing.
Dealing with bureaucracy. Don't want to spoil much but the first chapter was great where it shows some of the downsides of being a superhero
Not really. It was an interesting book, but I would not like it if it was overly provocative.
