*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.
Gail Goodwin is known as ‘Hostage Girl’ due to her propensity for being captured. All she wants is a normal life with her boyfriend, her job, and to be done with superheroes and all the drama. But fate of course has other plans, she ends up with powers of her own and stumbles into a conspiracy to depower anyone with abilities with an invention by a scientist known to be dead.
While it got off to a slow start, it ramped up real quick! It was jarring but once the book got going, it was very entertaining. If you like different takes on superheroes that’s not as dark as something like “The Boys” it’s worth checking out! 4 out of 5.
This documentary is about real people who dress up and fight crime in the US. Of course, it starts with Stan Lee and is peppered with actual law enforcement saying that this is probably not a good idea for civilians to be doing this. But to be totally honest, the people in this seem to genuinely want to help people. Not all of them are abject crime fighters, some simply help the homeless with little kits, water, blankets, or simply asking them if they have a safe place to sleep that night. Sometimes the way it’s edited you can tell the film is trying to make fun of them. Despite this, I finished this film feeling inspired. Not that I’ll be squeezing my ass into a costume and roaming the streets at night but I was sitting there wondering in what way I could make a difference in the world. And for that? I say check this out.
