Titan was one of the nation's most loved and respected Heroes, until an infidelity scandal tore his image and family apart. After decades spent out of the limelight, Owen Daniels has decided to take up the mantle of Titan once again to try and make amends for his years away. Unfortunately, the Titan Scandal is still common knowledge, and no Hero team wants such a polarizing figure.
With no other options, Owen is forced to take a job overseeing a group of corpies, corporate-sponsored Supers who do rescue work...as long as there are cameras around. Between a team that doesn't want him, fellow Heroes who don't trust him, and a nation that might not be ready to forgive the sins of the past, the return of Titan could prove even harder than the scandal that drove him away. But Owen will have to push on, because his new city is far from a peaceful one.
A mysterious enemy is attacking Heroes and growing steadily stronger. An enemy that only the once-legendary Titan might be able to stop. If he can manage to stick around this time.

The existence of superheroes are just the way things are, as well as super villains. In this world however not everyone gets the opportunity to be a superhero, but if not, all is not lost. If for some reason you do not make it to superhero status you can always join the ranks of corporate branded super powereds called Corpies. But something happens in the town of Brewster that will require superhero and Corpies alike to band together and face a formidable foe who turns out to be nothing what they expect it to be.
Story: Grade | A
I did like the moral undertones peppered throughout the book. I like the fact that this story is not completely filled with broken people and dark histories, although the main character does have this, the whole story is a bit brighter than a lot of the DC superhero stories that are out there. The corporate rules and world laws surrounding people with superpowers is also really interesting.
The only downside is that it felt like an adult version of The Incredible's. Seemed a little bit like they were taking elements of that story and just including adult content. Like mysterious learning robots, and the corporate nature of hero operations. It's not too bad so it didn't warrant a downgrade in my opinion, But I was waiting for a short redhead villain with a chip on his shoulder to be the ultimate bad guy trying to rid the world of special people. As I have mentioned in other reviews, I also do not like agendas – progressive or conservative – being pushed on me, and this book had a little bit of it.
Narration: Grade | B
I am not sure how to describe the narration of this book, the way the voice talent read the book was very unique. I thought he would be better suited for a documentary. It really didn't bother me or ruin the story, but it was still so unique that I really couldn’t help but notice it throughout the entire book. I will have to listen to another story that this person narrates to see if it is just unique to this book or if it is how this person reads every story. He did a good job of creating a variety between characters, for either gender as well.
Overall Grade | B
I did enjoy it, but I will be honest, I am a little concerned that I jumped into an already developed storyline and I should have probably started off with Super Powereds book 1 first. I like reading series's in order. This was my first superhero book and I enjoyed it for the most part. I do not care for language or sexual content that comes along with adult books, but apart from any television style rating system I guess it just comes with the territory. It did contain a few lines that kids would use when they are playing superheros but overall this was a great read.
