A superhero story that refuses to be a comic book. Michelle Zahner joyfully mixes storytelling, comedy and poetry to work out how being a superhero in the real world really works. How do you rescue people from depression or broken friendships? How do you fight cyclones, rabid llamas or the patriarchy? What do you call a boy damsel? And shouldn't there be a villain somewhere? A new hero finds herself dealing with media hype, impossible expectations and protest groups. She doesn't understand, Batman never had to deal with this sh*t.
