    Soon I Will Be Invincible

    • Year Released: 2007
    Soon I Will Be Invincible is a novel by Austin Grossman. It was published by Pantheon Books and released on June 5, 2007. The novel uses two alternating first person narratives. One narrative is told from the point-of-view of Fatale, a female cyborg who is recruited by the superhero group The New Champions as they investigate the disappearance of superhero CoreFire. The other narrative is told from the point-of-view of Dr. Impossible, a supervillain who possesses super-human strength and intellect and suffers from Malign Hypercognition Disorder ("evil genius" syndrome), as he escapes from jail and makes his thirteenth attempt at taking over the world. It is Austin Grossman's first novel. He was better known as a video game designer but was studying literature. While the book uses characters, settings, and storylines generally associated with comic books and superhero fiction, it is written entirely in prose. The story looks at how superheroes cope with their powers and interact with one another. The potential motivations and perspectives of supervillains are also explored. The book has been variously described as clever, engaging, and fun -- but overstuffed with comic book tropes.

    Superfolks

    Superfolks

    • Year Released: 1977
    Superfolks (also Super-Folks in its original cover art) is a 1977 novel by Robert Mayer (hb ISBN 0-207-95814-9, pb ISBN 0-417-05460-2). The novel satirizes the superhero and comic book genres, and was aimed at a more adult audience than those genres typically attracted. Superfolks also examines comic book conventions and clichés from a more serious, "literary" perspective. The novel was influential on many writers of superhero comic books in the 1980s and 1990s, notably Alan Moore and Kurt Busiek. Although the book's pop culture references clearly date it to the 1970s, its influence on the deconstruction of the superhero genre is still felt through Moore's Watchmen, Marvelman, and Superman: Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?. A modest success upon publication (also featured as a special book club edition), Superfolks eventually fell out of print. It was republished in 2003 in limited quantities by About Comics with a new cover by Watchmen artist Dave Gibbons and an introduction by Busiek. It reprinted again in March 2005 by St. Martin's Griffin with a new cover by Mike Allred and an introduction by Grant Morrison (ISBN 0-312-33992-5). The novel's protagonist is a Superman
