Teen Book Review

It seems that whatever you read, whatever you watch on TV or in the movies, you’ll find heroes all of types populating the media.  We love to watch them and read about them, and imagine ourselves being them.  However, heroes aren’t worth much unless they are being opposed by a truly dangerous villain. Supervillains in the comics and on television are the bad guys that we love to hate.
