The Supervillain and Me (Morriston Superheroes #1) by Danielle Banas book review


Synopsis (as taken from GoodReads)

Never trust a guy in spandex.

In Abby Hamilton’s world, superheroes do more than just stop crime and save cats stuck in trees—they also drink milk straight from the carton and hog the television remote. Abby’s older brother moonlights as the famous Red Comet, but without powers of her own, following in his footsteps has never crossed her mind.

That is, until the city’s newest vigilante comes bursting into her life.

After saving Abby from an attempted mugging, Morriston’s fledgling super villain Iron Phantom convinces her that he’s not as evil as everyone says, and that their city is under a vicious new threat. As Abby follows him deeper into their city’s darkest secrets, she comes to learn that heroes can’t always be trusted, and sometimes it’s the good guys who wear black.


Overall this book was a little cheesy but still cute. I liked the central plot idea and how the story unfolded. The only issue was it was a little too over the top with the YA tropes, however it does work for this book. I DID like the fact that Abby was average and not super hot, in fact she had bad acne. I feel like it made her more relatable. Overall this book was a fun read and an interesting take on something different. 4/5 Stars.
