Overview

Superhero Today, Gone Tomorrow

Being a superhero is tough. One minute you're an undefeated champion, and the next some upstart with a longer cape and tighter tights has you breathing through a tube in the Super ER.

Witness the rise of Super-Champs, and their inevitable descent to Super-Chumps. With every turn of the page, a new hero dominates the last. Experience firsthand why The Superest website is one of the hottest draws on the Web! See:

  • The terrifying depilatory powers of the Male Pattern Baldness Eagle!
  • The destructive creations of Fold Man Chu, the world's deadliest origami master!
  • The pugilistic fury employed by the Guardin' Gnome, protector of lawns!

Each hero more deadly--and super--than the last. Each page more thrilling than the one before! Who will be the superest hero of them all? It could be you!

Probably not, though. I mean. . .did anyone even interview you for this book?
