Squanders a great premise

This just made me sad. Sad that I fell for yet another poorly written superhero story. The premise is so good! A hero and a villain with amnesia run into each other at a support group and decide to help each other. But all the tension and unexpected places this could’ve gone are wasted almost at the start.

“A superhero and a super villain meet in AA and decide to team up” is a remarkably simple and excellent premise, brilliantly told and nearly flawlessly executed in WE COULD BE HEROES.

Above all else this book is fun. Yes, there’s danger (sometimes a lot of danger), and the stakes are really huge for the characters, but watching them was an adventure. The way they went about their heroics and their villainy totally fit their personalities and helped tell me more about them, long before they were explaining themselves to each other.
