(Sidekicks Initiative, #1)
by Barry J. Hutchison (2018)
When sworn protectors of Earth, the Justice Platoon, are all horribly killed, their former arch-enemies come crawling out of the woodwork. Outnumbered, outgunned, and out of options, the US Government has no choice but to activate the Sidekicks Initiative, dragging the Platoon’s middle-aged ex-sidekicks out of retirement.
Now these three reluctant, out of shape former child-wonders must work together to stop the rising tide of supervillainy, avenge their former mentors’ deaths, and bring the world back from the brink of destruction.
Assuming they don’t kill each other first.
From the author of ‘Space Team’ comes a strange story of superheroes. It’s not funny enough to make it as good as his other SciFi comedies. It’s not bad either, just kinda …. blah. Ordinary.
