INVINCIBLE, CONFESSIONS OF A D LIST SUPERVILLAIN, or my own SUPERVILLAINY SAGA It s the story of a small time villain who has the potential to be a big time villain He s blessed with the skills of an archer, the strength of Thor, and a genius scientific mind It says something about just how much of an underachiever the guy is that he s still doing penny ante jobs before he gets recruited by the world s equivalent of Lex Luthor for the biggest job imaginable.I liked this book a great deal and have to say that Blackjack, himself, is a large part of the appeal I think he s a bit too overpowered as he suffers a a crisis of schticks That s part of his appeal, though, that he can t commit to anything and even his name is because he couldn t think of anything which covered all his themes The book outright says he s suffering from maturity problems and that includes not being able to take responsibility for his actions Everything is the fault of his archenemy Atmosphero.The best part of the book is the first half which describes the nature of being a mid level supervillain We get to see how his crooked lawyer gets the superheroes off his back, what causes him to have chronic villainy losing his house to a superhero fight , and also how he managed to get involved in the business in the first place These are some really fascinating scenes and ones which I wanted to hearabout because it s the meat of the book The villains which Blackjack deals with are an eccentric cast of characters who also provide a good deal of humor as well as contrasting personalities One is a murderous psychopathic eco terrorist with psychic powers, another one too stupid to realize his codename is a movie reference, and another still being a woman who is the very definition of bad for Blackjack This is contrasted against a superheroine who is brainwashed into helping them but still serves as a good influence on Blackjack.The book loses a star because the latter half leaves the colorful world of superheroes and villains to a weird planetary romance esque adventure on what is best described as the Halo from Halo crossed with Barsoom It s a genre shift which isn t entirely welcome despite being still very entertaining I wanted to see our villains fight heroes rather than local space tribesmen Thankfully, it returns to that for the exciting finale.8 10 Kudos A super villain story that doesn t go where you expect it to I m torn between a 3 and a 4 star review Bequer s writing is good not amazing, but definitely good especially for this particular genre the superhero novel where pretty horrible writing seems to dominate There are some info dumps and probably too much super combat but without that a lot of readers might feel cheated If the combat waspunchy teehee the story might move a bit better.What Bequer does here is to Kudos A super villain story that doesn t go where you expect it to I m torn between a 3 and a 4 star review Bequer s writing is good not amazing,

rise to power, and a pretty well thought out world that happens to contain a bunch of really powerful superheroes He does that really well.Minor view spoiler Personally I could have done without the alternate world stuff as well but again, that s just my preference hide spoiler Major view spoiler What I don t buy is the Original 7 not being able to convince the world that they had the world s best interest s at heart especially when someone like Lord Mighty was able to follow Retcon s plan so fast hide spoiler Ok I ll go with 4 P [ Download Ebook ] ☦ Blackjack Villain ☪ I m Blackjack A small time villain I know I m not a big leaguer, but than one wannabe hero has ended up in traction after getting in my way I mostly stick to easy stuff, though, like popping banks and ard cars, and make a little money where I can Living good is nice, you know I thought I had it all figured out, until I found a once in a lifetime opportunity A slot in a big time super villain teamThe gig seemed like a dream Steal bits of dusty old crap from different parts of the world and make serious cash But little would I know that what would start small would end up sending me halfway across the galaxy or was it to a different dimension , and at the end of it all the fate of our planet, and everyone living in it, would be in my handsOh, and I met a girlA girl that changed everything God this book is so bad The plots are so random and it s just the same stuff from the beginning to end.May be the author you should read Brandon Sanderson s Steelhart then read this I ended up being surprised by this book It was recommended to me by a friend, and it just so happened to be the same friend who got me to read Ready Player One, which I loved So I convinced myself to trust him, despite my reservations about this book after reading the synopsis And for the first 51% of the book, I kinda wanted to punch him in the face.Superheroes aren t really in my wheelhouse, nor are swing by swing overly detailed fight sequences that go on and on and on and You get it I ended up being surprised by this book It was recommended to me by a friend, and it just so happened to be the same friend who got me to read

the face.Superheroes aren t really in my wheelhouse, nor are swing by swing overly detailed fight sequences that go on and on and on and You get it But right around that halfway point, stuff started to happen and suddenly it got HELLA interesting After that, I was hooked.And yeah, I saw all the editing errors other people have mentioned Some bothered methan others The one that drove me the most crazy was that the author could never keep straight was the heroine was wearing On one page she d be wearing a diaphanous dress robe thing, then a couple paragraphs later her superhero costume, then the next page the dress again And no, this amazing wardrobe changing ability isn t one of her superpowers The author just couldn t keep up what the chick was wearing from moment to moment DETAILS MATTER, GENTLEMEN.I will say though that the side characters are definitely this book s strength they re basically what got me all the way to that halfway point without quitting, and they just got better from there And now here I am, throwing a temper tantrum over the ending and eager to dive into the next book.The moral of the story Trust in your nerdy bookish friends, people They have your best interests at heart Having just finished reading Seveneves right before this, I have to say that this book was exactly what I needed and or wanted Superheros, action, fight scenes,action I have some criteria for Superhero genre stories, criteria for what I think makes such a book or story good This is a gradually expanding field, and some works fit my criteria and sadly, some do not Such

was exactly what I needed and or wanted Superheros, action, fight scenes,action I have some criteria for Superhero genre stories, criteria for what I think makes such a book or story good This is a gradually expanding field, and some works fit my criteria and sadly, some do not Such stories need a hero protagonist who is deceive, who acts even if such action later turns out to have been a mistake They need a variety of heros, of powered people Stories that purport to be superhero stories and then include only one or two such powered people fail my criteria I m sorry to say And finally, they need action, LOTS of action There are actually a growing number of these kinds of books out there these days, including the Wearing the Cape A Superhero Story series, the Super Powereds Year 1 series, the Sensation series, the Please Don t Tell My Parents I m a Supervillain series, the The Rise of Renegade X series, the Super Villain Dad Cape High series, the Dire Born series, and various others I m pleased to say that Blackjack Villain is an excellent book and deserves to be placed among those others of similar genre It features an interesting protagonist whom I found both thoughtful, and realistically flawed Lots of fun detail on costuming and powers and personalities, lots of genre specific quirks that were enjoyable to read and think about Did I mention lots of action Highly recommended if you like Superheros I paid retail price for the Kindle version of this book My thoughts and opinions are entirely my own I was not compensated for them, nor were solicited by either the author or publisher Long live Blackjack What an epic book I really enjoyed this book I m really excited to read the rest of the books in the series got my orange Mountain Dew here and now I m off to read the next book Thank You Been for awesome universe that can visit. Great WorkAn incredible visceral action packed thrill ride between redemption and despair Complete with drama, humor, adventure, super powers, aliens, and even a little romance Seriously one of the very best takes on a supers world I ve seen.Definitely recommended
