This way, they get back in the air and fight the numerous villains that are plaguing the city. Complete with new uniforms , masks , cool gadgets , codenames , an Elaborate Underground Base , and occasional help from allies like Deputy Mayor Callie Briggs and Feral's niece Felina , they kick super-villain tail and generally do it with style.

Episodes of the show followed a one-shot format, featuring completely self-contained stories and certain overarching themes and villains. The Status Quo , however, does change every now and then, and only very few of the bad guys get Joker Immunity. On occasion, if the bad guy pushes them too far, our heroes will shoot to kill.

There was so much inside this book. I was easily able to identity with not just the main character but all of the characters. Their story took me in deeper. I felt their pain, their frustrations and the tensions were real. Growing up while trying to do what's right for The Garden City Rules by Michelle Courtney is a contemporary YA piece that readers won't be forgetting any time soon. Growing up while trying to do what's right for one's siblings is hard.
Without parents in the picture, it's left to the older or oldest sibling to carry the burden. Life is hard enough without losing people one loves. But as the story progressed, it went from sad to peaceful. The understanding and love was powerful.
