The Power of Love
Sydney Blackburn & Lina Langley
The #1 rule of superhero training camp is you don’t talk about superhero training camp.
Or your parents.
Or their powers, which is the only thing saving Vince’s life—he’s the son of a notorious supervillain. But the secret could become a deadly deception when he falls into a super-powered entanglement with gorgeously heroic cabinmate Locke.
When their instructor disappears, Vince’s father may be to blame. Torn between loyalties, Vince’s greatest fear is that his father’s taint will corrupt him and poison his heart against Locke.
Vince might be doomed to follow in his father’s footsteps, but he hopes love can beat genetics.
Blurb: Rex Devious (Dr. Devious to meddlesome do-gooders everywhere) can go toe-to-toe with superheroes without blinking an eye. So picking out a Christmas present for his new boyfriend should be no problem. After all, he and Sanjay seem perfect for each other. But with a terrible track record for finding gifts that won’t scare his potential partners away, Rex is paralyzed with insecurity. Until, of course, he decides to change tactics. Instead of having to pick out that perfect present, why not just destroy Christmas altogether? If his nemeses (or his conscience) can’t stop him first, he might just become the Supervillain who stole Christmas.
Review: Rex is a strange character that is one thing I do know. He has a sexy boyfriend who he wants to impress, but as a supervillain he is about to bark down a road he has not gone down. If you want the details then you have got to read the story, trust me you will get a good laugh.
At first I wasn’t really sure about this story, but then I took the theme that the authors of this very strange calendar advent and went with it. It was a quirky story that was an absolute blast to read. I spent most of the time laughing my ass off. For such a short story there is definitely a lot more to bite into.
I got a big kick out of reading it and put it on my all-time Christmas reading list for future holidays.
“How the Supervillain Stole Christmas” is a tale of superheroes and villains, which has been something of a passion of mine for a long time. I just can’t help being charmed by the tropes of superheroing, and I love how over-the-top it can be, with giant death lasers and earthquake machines and alien menaces. My main disappointment has always been the lack of representation and, when present, how truly awful a lot of main stream superhero works have been about LGBTQ+ portrayals and storylines. So I decided to start writing my own (hopefully) cute stories that feature characters I could identify with and plots that are just as ridiculous as the best stories to come out of the 60s and 70s. In “How the Supervillain Stole Christmas” Rex Devious is a villain with no luck with relationships. Specifically, he sucks at picking out Christmas gifts. There is no quicker way to scare away a romantic partner than getting them something… inappropriate for Christmas. Like a gun that makes plants sentient. Or a Canadian province. Which is a shame, because Rex just got into a relationship he’s desperate not to screw up and Christmas is just around the corner. Which means, of course, that it’s time to stop Christmas from coming, somehow…
My question is: Gorillord is a giant, talking gorilla who is also a supervillain (naturally), and he’s mentioned in my latest release, “How the Supervillain Stole Christmas.” In the story we learn that when planning a child’s birthday party, inviting a supervillain as a special guest is rarely a good idea, as Gorillord decides to unionize the household pets into demanding more pets and better food.. But which other of my published stories has featured this ecologically-minded menace?

Junior Hero Blues
Last year, Javier Medina was your average socially awkward gay high schooler with a chip on his shoulder. This year, he’s . . . well, pretty much the same, but with bonus superpowers, a costume with an ab window to show off his new goods, and a secret identity as the high-flying, wise-cracking superhero Blue Spark.
But being a Junior Hero means that Javier gets all the responsibility and none of the cool gadgets. It’s hard enough working for the Legion of Liberty and fighting against the evil Organization, all while trying to keep on top of schoolwork and suspicious parents. Add in a hunky boyfriend who’s way out of Javier’s league, and an even hunkier villain who keeps appearing every time said boyfriend mysteriously disappears, and Blue Spark is in for one big dollop of teenage angst. All while engaging in some epic superhero action and, oh yeah, an all-out battle to protect Liberty City from the forces of evil.
Welcome to the 100% true and totally unbiased account of life as a teenage superhero.

Where There’s A Will
Being a Hero in Panopolis means living the high life: parties, money, influence, even reality television. And I’m one of the most powerful Heroes in the city. I have plenty of fans, a manager who looks out for me (after himself), and a job that pays the bills. I should be enjoying myself.
Unfortunately, the downside of my superpower means I can’t touch anyone, which tends to put a damper on things. I probably don’t deserve all those perks anyway, since I’m working in secret with two of Panopolis’s biggest Villains to undermine GenCorp—my main sponsor and the company that controls what gets through my force field.
I obviously don’t trust my corporate overseers, but they’ve hired a new scientist who actually seems interested in helping me. Dr. Mansourian might have the answers to all my questions—not to mention a starring role in most of my dreams—but he’s hiding something big. If I let him have what he wants, I might not live to regret it.
Then again, the way things are going in Panopolis these days, I might not live either way.

Where There’s Smoke
Panopolis is a rough place to be an average Joe. I came here looking for adventure and excitement, but nobody cares about one more normal guy in a city filled with super-powered heroes. The closest I’ve come to glory is working in a bank that villains often rob.
But then I maybe accidentally-on-purpose helped a villain escape the hero who was trying to save the day. Imagine my shock when, a week later, that villain asked me out for coffee. One date turned into more, and now I’m head over heels in love with Raul.
Falling in love with the guy dubbed the Mad Bombardier isn’t without its downsides, though. I’ve had to deal with near-death encounters with other villains, awkwardly flirtatious heroes who won’t take no for an answer, and a lover I’m not sure I can trust. It’s getting to the point where I know I’ll have to make a choice: side with the heroes, or stand fast by my villain.
Either way, I think my days as a normal guy are over.
