Oh, I had fun with this one. It's smart, witty, and entertaining, with a surprising amount of character focus and complexity.

Evan lives in a world with "metahumans," Masks and Hoods (heroes and villains) who were initially created by a bomb that killed hundreds of thousands. He has always dreamed of being just like his idol, Captain Commanding, to a geek-obsessed level that makes him a social outcast. He just so happens to be at the wrong place at the wrong time to become a hostage in an evil plot, which leads to his discovery of minor metahuman powers of his own. Yet he quickly learns that, despite his obsessive knowledge of the history of Masks and Hoods, nothing is at all what he expected. The metahuman world holds many secrets, and he is now caught up in them in ways that turn his dreams and aspirations on their heads.

I'm ready for the sequel.
