As witty as it is heartpounding, this fresh take on the beloved superhero genre is all about finding your own way to shine even when it seems everyone else around you is, well… super.

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 supervillain 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.

Chosen by readers like you for Macmillan’s young adult imprint Swoon Reads, The Supervillain and Me is a hilarious, sweet, and action-packed novel by debut author Danielle Banas that proves no one is perfect, not even superheroes.

The Supervillain and Me (Morriston superheroes #1) by Danielle Banas

Genre: YA, Contemporary, Romance, Fantasy

Rating: 5 stars


(DISCLAIMER: This review is based on my opinion only.)

Abby constantly lives in the shadow of her older brother, since he’s a superhero, the Red Comet. After Abby is saved by the mysterious supervillain, Iron Phantom, she isn’t convinced that he is a bad guy, unlike the city who claims he is a horrible villain.

When I saw this blog tour, I immediately applied because this book has been on my TBR since last year and I was so excited to read this book, and I literally fangirl-ed myself to death when I realised that I was going to get a review copy for the blog tour!

I actually predicted who Iron Phantom was already, but I really found Iron Phantom and Abby’s interactions really cute. This book also emphasised on how difficult it actually is to be a hero. I did kinda hope that Abby would have gained some special abilities though.

This book was comedic and addictive, I really couldn’t put it down. I really liked the story progression and really liked and enjoyed this book! I finished it in one sitting and I wanted to read more ASAP! (Imagine my horror when I realised I was reading a review copy, and that the book was only going to be released a day before my review while my heart agonised about wanting to read the 2nd book).
