Pretentious tired old concepts

Would you try another book from the authors and/or the narrators?


What was most disappointing about the authors’s story?

The stories were excruciatingly slow to develop and had little to nothing to do with superheroes. The Forward was a pretentious snob rambling about how great he is for putting this book together.

Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?


What character would you cut from Superheroes?

all of them

Any additional comments?

pick up pretty much any comic book from the last 30 years and you will get better, more mature stories than these.

Every idea or concept the writers do not agree with is belittled and insulted. The performer delivers this in a snide tone sure to infuriate anyone who disagrees with their "smarter than you poor fools" attitude. All while getting terms and named wrong in several chapters.
