villains are complicated characters
this book will soften show you facets of them that make them more human than the heroes themselves

Some great, some good, some ehhh.

There is some good to great storytelling here. I will recommend it to anyone who is a marvel/superhero fan, with a few caveats. Stories: several of the stories are really good, the type of character development that you would expect in a novel or a good script. Some of them however are not great. Two or three stories just end, they don’t really have an ending, there’s no arc. The first couple stories are very good. Last few are also strong. It’s the middle. It’s like, Im getting paid and we need to fill space, this is good enough. Narration: Again generally strong. This isn’t a comment on the quality of the narration but more of a quality of the production. Especially early on, it’s like they made last-minute changes to the script, changes that really didn’t matter at all, but the P stands very abrupt words or sentences that we’re just jarring. It’s like, this is good enough for these people. Honestly I relisten to a couple of them, and they would’ve been so much better off just not including those lines. But again, it was probably some author who insisted on it or something equally ridiculous. Hurt quality of the production.

I would recommend this for the nuggets of gold and because it’s a long enough listen to keep you entertained. I just wish that there were more of the good ones. Honestly, superhero novelizations are suspect at best. So this is better than a lot of stuff you see available.

One more thing, there is very little superhero stuff here. If you’re hoping to listen in on your favorite superhero fighting is arch enemy, this isn’t that story. All stories are from the perspective of the super villain.

I did enjoy, just didn’t love it.

Mediocre Stories, Poor Audio

The stories would be more for young people, if some of the plots, dialogue, and situations weren't pushing adult levels

The recording was harsh with "S" being extreme. You had to decide between turning up the volume to hear and having your ear blasted with hard consonants. Invest in a windscreen for your mic next time.
