Superuseless Superpowers Book Review

About the Book: In this age of economic downturn and global strife, when all that seemed powerful in the past has balked in the face of challenge, what we really need are heroes possessing powers so FATHOMABLE, so UNEXCEPTIONAL, so MERELY ADEQUATE, that they could only be deemed "SUPERUSELESS."


Behold! The world's WORST and MOST POINTLESS superpowers have come:


IN-FLIGHT FLIGHT: The ability to fly, but only while inside an airplane that's already flying.
13TH BULLET BULLETPROOF: The ability to deflect the 13th bullet that hits you.
THE POWERPOINTER: The ability to turn any situation into a graph.
FLAWGIC: The ability to have flawless logic when arguing with your girlfriend.

Our Take: This fun new oddly-sized paperback is quite a treat.  We're HUGE superhero and comic book fans here at the Legion, so we found this parody to be quite enjoyable.  It features a bunch of useless superpowers.  I particularly enjoyed the Were-Woof..a guy that turns into a cuddly little dog during a full moon.  The book is great, the only critique we have is the artwork.  Its done in this "I don't care that I suck" attitude and its really off-putting.  If they'd tried just a *little* bit it would've made the book an even better quality.  Even so, its a funny read.  Great to have on your desk or to keep around and flip through.
