Description

"[A] genuinely new sort of superhero story." -- Kirkus Reviews



"Debut author Jung smartly balances adventure and comedy in a story about (unwanted) power and responsibility that pokes fun at superhero conventions along the way (Professor Mayhem, like a true supervillain, takes his time to explain his evil plot in full)...Superhero fans also will appreciate the sly nod to Clark Kent/Superman when the book jacket is removed." -- Publishers Weekly



"With snappy and authentic dialogue, layered plotting, full-on science, and sweet preteen romance, Jung's boisterous debut is a winner. Here's hoping we haven't seen the last of this bunch." -- Booklist



"There is plenty of page-turning action, plenty of snappy dialogue and action sound effects, plenty of middle school drama (and a little romance), plenty of grossness, and plenty of kid superiority over adults. Superhero fans and comic book fans will be eager readers." -- Library Media Connection, Recommended



"This classic fanboy fantasy hits all the right notes as Vincent uses his wits to overcome some pretty formidable odds.... The dialogue is witty, the plotting clever, and the sentiments are right on target for the age group; fans of Cody's Powerless and readers who enjoy stories about superheroes, underdogs, and friendship skirmishes will all find something to like here." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
