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 was a fun, cute read.
This book takes place in Morriston. Crime has been on the rise, but luckily there are superheros in the world. Morriston has two, but they can’t save everyone. A third superhero shows up, but he sets fire to the county building and it’s decided that he’s actually a supervillain.
Abby lives with her father, the mayor, and her brother, Connor, who is secretly a superhero. Connor is Red Comet. Red Comet is the most popular superhero in the area. He can fly and saved a lot of people. However, he couldn’t save their mother when she was killed during a bank heist. Connor has a lot of guilt over this still and he tries his best to save everyone.
Fish Boy is the other hero. He’s a bit slow and doesn’t save people as often.
There are two boys in Abby’s life. Rylan is the quiet boy that has been around for years. Abby starts talking to him more because he’s part of the new school musical. The other boy is Isaac. He’s the lead in the musical and new at school. Both boys are kind of mysterious in their own way.
The new “supervillain” is named Iron Phantom. He saves Abby’s life one night and starts showing up in her room at night to talk. She is one of the only people who believes that he’s good and is being set up. Abby starts to fall for him, but he won’t tell her who he is. He just gives her little clues. She’s positive he’s Isaac, but he won’t admit anything. They start working together after Iron Phantom finds these microchips in the mayor’s office. They get into a lot of dangerous situations, but Abby wants to help him figure out what is going on and who set him up.
This book had a cute romance, lots of moments that made me laugh, and some superhero adventure. I really enjoyed it and gave it 4 stars.
