Welcome to Gemini City, where super-battles disrupt rush hour, insurance claim adjusters rival rock stars, and villains stash the souls of murdered superheroes inside little children.
It’s been ten years since Shay Sinclair’s parents were murdered by a super villain, leaving she and her sister to fend for themselves. Now at age sixteen, Shay has something that villain wants. Something he needs. After a chance encounter with a superhero in a stairwell, something awakens in Shay, something that could get her killed.
Max Steel has spent the last ten years searching for the soul of his lost love. When he felt his lost love’s spark inside Shay, he had to go after her. But Shay isn’t into superheroes. So, Max must get creative. He invites Shay into a seductive world of fame, glamour, luxury, and epic battles with villainous foes.
Now that Shay’s in the mix with superheroes and crazed villains, everyone wants a piece of her. A super villain wants to devour her soul, a superhero wants to love her, and Shay just wants to go back to her normal life. It’s not like in the movies. In real life, superheroes suck.
There are a lot of amazing characters in Superheroes Suck, but to me, Shay Sinclair and Max Storm are the most important.
Shay is 16, and a literal genius. She was offered an early graduation from high school and a full ride to a prestigious college, but she turned it down. Her parents were killed during a superpowered scuffle when she was a child, her older sister is her legal guardian. All she wants is a bit of normalcy, and high school is as normal as it gets. Like most people in Gemini City, Shay is enamored by the real live superheroes who chase off evil villains. She never thought she’d meet one, but when she did everything she knew about her life changed forever.
Max Storm is an actual superhero. He spent the last ten years seeking revenge against the villains who murdered his superpowered girlfriend on the streets of Gemini City. Then, he met Shay. She’s just a kid, sixteen, but something about her attracts Max like a magnet. He hates himself for being attracted to Shay, but soon discovers it’s not Shay he’s drawn to but something inside her, something a villain did to her, and he won’t rest until he saves the day like the hero he is.
