Do you want to be a supervillain? It seems hard doesn’t it? Well do not fret! The Supervillain Handbook is here to save…err…destroy the day! This easy guide will go over all the dos, and don’ts, of becoming a supervillain. So pay attention…otherwise you might get stuck in the lowly role of henchmen.
A fun book, but for the most part, exactly what you would expect. This is truly a handbook at heart, giving tips on how to produce evil laughter, how to procure the proper costume, and the appropriate form of education, as well as examples of exactly what NOT to do.
Yet, it could get a little repetitive, and it might have been better if I had read it by hand rather than as an audio book. The rundown of the handbook was simply this: don’t do any of the dumb things you see villains do in cartoons, but at the same time, be stereotypical. Why? Because being a villain like that is FUN!
And as I said, that’s what this book is: fun. Will it stick with me forever? Probably not. Might I think of a quip or two when watching a foolish villain? Possibly. And that’s all that matters.
I suppose if you *really* want to become a supervillain, it is definitely worth the read. It might stop you from making a foolish mistake…or twenty.
