Petit has done an exceptional job of building heroes and villains that are unique and quite true to form from the comic books and cartoons. He has taken this group and built an incredible story around them. Like reading a comic from the beginning issue to the end, it is satisfying and enriching. As with the comics when I was young, I could become the hero or the villain, and while the latter were incredibly talented, they were not extremely evil. It was fun to make believe because there was always just a bit of good even in the worst of the bunch. However, when real evil enters the fray all bets are off, and it is anyone’s guess who will win and who will lose.
Written with a keen eye, Petit makes it easy to picture the characters and the places. The story is exceptional, and if I had pictures with it, I would have felt again as a child as I read the most recent issues of my favorite hero. The thing about comics, though, is that some readers never gave up and have been followers for their whole lives. True comic lovers are the people I envy even as I read and find myself transported back to a time of real believing.
I would recommend this book for anyone who enjoys action and adventure, and especially those that enjoy comic book heroes. It is fun and absorbing. I found it hard to put down once I began.
