***** Above and beyond
Content: Some violence, but since it’s Christian, it is pretty clean.
Originality and world building: ***
The whole idea of a superhero TV show is interesting. However, I felt the world building was a bit underdone. Superheroes running loose in society seemed to have changed almost nothing, other than a few laws and the way superhero related activities are considered by law.
Characters and their Arcs: ***
Robin has some conflict with his brother, and there’s a bit of an arc there. The characters were interesting, but I never really had a solid attachment to them.
Writing style and Pacing: ****
I thought the story started off slow, but once I was a ways in, it got a lot better. There were a few things I felt should have been better explained.
