Gary Karkofsky is an ordinary guy with an ordinary life living in an extraordinary world. Supervillains, heroes, and monsters are a common part of the world he inhabits. Yet, after the death of his hometown's resident superhero, he gains the amazing gift of the late champion's magical cloak. Deciding he prefers to be rich rather than good, Gary embarks on a career as Merciless: The Supervillain Without Mercy.
But is he evil enough to be a villain in America's most crime-ridden city?
Gary soon finds himself surrounded by a host of the worst of Falconcrest City's toughest criminals. Supported by his long-suffering wife, his ex-girlfriend turned professional henchwoman, and a has-been evil mastermind, Gary may end up being not the hero they want but the villain they need.
FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
This was the perfect time for me to discover this novel. Just coming off the long run of Avengers and saying good-bye to Iron Man and Captain America I needed something else. Then there is the fact that Deadpool is one of my absolute favorite movies! I needed The Rules of Suppervillainy.
Kafer delivers the sarcastic, witty banter in such a sardonic manner that it just adds so much to the characters and the story, which is so funny and ridiculous at times yet needs to be a movie because it would do fantastic. Where is this multiverse?
I loved Gary and his magical cloak. Their interaction and conversations were hilarious. Then when he hires on Cindy and Diabloman as henchmen or hench-persons. It is ridiculous on funny, and I enjoyed every moment.
I am rating The Rules of Supervillainy: The Supervillainy Saga Volume 1 five Boundless Stars, now on to book 2.
