Saving the world is easy for a superhero-unless you're a fraud. Jo Tanis is a superhero, fighting evil on the city streets, using her ability to feed off electromagnetic energy and fire off charges-and it's all just a show. The Agency captures her and others like her when their powers begin to manifest, pitting them against each other in staged, gladiatorial fights. An explosive implant on the back of her neck assures she'll keep right on smiling for the camera and beating up the bad guys. When Earth comes under attack, suddenly the show becomes deadly real. Unable to deal with a real alien, the "supers" are falling in droves. Millions of innocent civilians are going to die...unless Jo can cobble together a team from among the fake heroes and villains the Agency enslaved. Including Hunter, who not only promises to show her how to deactivate the implants, but seems to know more than he should about how the mysterious Agency operates. Forcing a rag-tag bunch of former enemies to work together is the least of Jo's problems. The trick is determining if Hunter is friend or foe-and becoming the hero everyone thought she was before the world is destroyed for real. Warning: Contains superhero in-jokes, Canadiana and large alien craft shaped like avocados. Really.… (més)

Jo is a super her power is gathering energy from objects and transforming it into electricity which she can shoot from her hands or user to fly. She and others like her waged mock battles as eye-candy for the media. The battles were all for entertainment purposes until one day a race of aliens came to earth and the fight suddenly became real. Jo became the self-appointed leader in an unplanned war to become real heroes and save the world. This book started out slow but picked up the pace quickly it was well crafted and a good read. If you like comic books, superheroes, and science fiction then this book is for you. I would highly recommend checking this one out. ( )
