I was a little surprised by Perry Moore's Hero. I suppose I expected it to be a little more Sky High or Mystery Men with some gay teen drama thrown in, but while it had plenty of humor, there was some serious stuff going on there. It was actually more reminiscent of Justice League and Watchmen instead. With some gay teen drama thrown in. See, Thom has problems. His father is homophobic and virulently anti-superhero, which means Thom has to hide both being gay and having a superpower. Throw in a long-gone mother, a crush on a rival basketball player, and trying to join the League his father was thrown out of, and you have all the makings of a very complicated balancing act. Do I even need to say that I devoured it as quickly as I could?
