We gave it a C

After the parents of a comics nerd are outed as superheroes, he’s sent to a magnet school for superteens — that’s secretly run by villains. There, he leads his classmates into battle, despite his lack of powers.

For Fans of…
The Faculty; Smallville.

Does It Deliver?
Deft inside jokes and the beauty of Azaceta’s spare, thick lines can’t compensate for muddled storytelling and a protagonist who’s at once bratty and pious.
