This book is SUPER, Man!

An original and entertaining take on the popular "superhero" fantasy -- and what a cast of characters! Captain Housework! And how about that pediatrician who cares for superheroes' children? And the one with the child with the abusive stepfather and a real father who's a superhero is the COOLEST beans! And I loved that Soviet "Superman" spoof -- Kyril Kentarovsky instead of Clark Kent! I laughed so hard I nearly burst a vein! One little quibble. I wasn't so crazy about the fact that, in the aforementioned Russian Superman spoof, Kyril Kentarovsky referred to a prison rape victim as the inmates' "unwilling sweetheart." The author should have said "sex partner" or "boy-toy" instead of "sweetheart." "Sweetheart" means something, and it isn't this. The word sweetheart, to me, is associated with love, (which could be either heterosexual or same-sex),not violence or force. If someone is your "sweetheart," you don't abuse him or her. Still in all, this book is all that and a bag of chips -- or, in reference to pop culture's #1 fantasy superhero -- this book is all that and a king-sized CLARK Bar!!!...

Great Book with some exceptional stories

When I first read this book, i had checked it out of the library. I liked it so much i decided that I had to buy it. It has some great stories. Some aren't exactly what you might expect but that makes they even better. A must read for all comic readers and sci-fi fans.

Many stories; most good

I am going to give each story in this book a simple 10 to 1 rating. Ten being a good story, one being a very bad story.A CLEAN SWEEP-8TIME FOR A HERO-10PEER REVIEW-9SHADOW STORM-8EMPOWERED-9HANDING ON THE GOGGLES-7SHE WHO MIGHT BE OBEYED-6AND THE SEA SHALL CAST HIM OUT-9 THE DEFENDER OF CENTRAL PARK-7REFLECTED GLORY-9SUPER ACORNS-10VETS-10FOUR TALES OF MANY NAMES-7THE LONG CRAWL OF HUGH GLASS-9GOD SAVE THE KING-6CONTRACT HIT-3ORIGIN STORY-8TU QUOQUE-10THEME MUSIC MAN-2BICYCLE SUPERHERO-2CAPTAIN ASIMOV-7PRESS CONFERENCE-3BASIC TRAINING-8ONE OF THE BOYS-8TRUTH, JUSTICE AND THE POLITICALLY CORRECT SOCIALIST PATH-9
