Mighty and Powerful Gods

I wasn’t going to write this right away, but I figure I may as well do it while some piece of it all is still timely and all.

So you’ve all heard me say a thousand times that I think character development is important. On top of this, I think that having a balanced character is also key. (There is a limit to this, but I’ll get into that later.) When a character becomes too overpowered, they become dull, boring. There’s nothing to them anymore. Nothing can stand in their way because they literally have every power and every ability to stop those who stand against them.

I also just saw X-Men Apocalypse. You may see where I got this idea from.

BOOK REVIEW: HERO STATUS by Kristen Brand

I was provided a copy of this novel by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Having dabbled in superhero/villain fiction myself, I’m always willing to take a look at new superhero fiction. It was one of the things that drew me to Tony Noland’s VERBOSITY’S VENGEANCE. So when Kristen Brand approached me to review HERO STATUS, I was definitely intrigued by the premise.

Dave del Toro is a retired superhero married to his old nemesis, Valentina Belmonte. They’ve stepped away from the super-life, settled down in sunny Miami, and they’ve done their best to live a normal life for their daughter. But when one of Dave’s superhero comrades turns up dead with Valentina’s old calling card on him, their lives get tossed up in the air. Now Dave has to choose: stick to his hero morals, or save his wife and bend the laws he’s fought to uphold.

Yessssssss.
