Things haven't been going well for Kyle since Mighty Mike became the new town hero. He's pretty sure he could fix this disaster if he could expose Mike's secret (he's an alien), but to do that Kyle would have to admit he is the Azure Avenger -- the unintentional town archvillain.

One night a new masked hero, aptly named the Mad Mask, arrives, boasting to the Azure Avenger of an off-the-charts IQ and superior superpowers. Yet the Mad Mask has come seeking intellectual assistance in building Ultitron (the robot of all robots). In exchange he offers to allow the Azure Avenger to use the awesome Ultitron to rid the world, or at least Bouring, of Mighty Mike. Forging alliances isn't usually Kyle's style, but it seems he has no choice. While Kyle agrees to help, he also has another plan: finding out who the Mad Mask is and how he got his powers. Because the last thing the Azure Avenger needs is another mindless archvillain hanging around town!

First, let me say that I'm not really the comic book, superhero type so this wasn't my cup of tea. (or should I say coffee since I rarely drink tea?) However, my 12 yr old son thoroughly enjoyed this so maybe I should've let him write the review?

This is the continuation of Kyle aka the AZURE AVENGER and his efforts to defeat Mighty Mike which completely backfired in the first book, ARCHVILLAIN. As he sets out with his new plan, he's thrown a new twist when another superhero flies into town. The Mad Mask agrees to help Kyle with his plans to take down Mighty Mike but he wants Kyle to do something for him in exchange. Now, Kyle isn't known for making the best choices but he agrees to team up with The Mad Mask and that's his first big mistake.

Through another series of superhero attempts that end in failure of epic proportions, Kyle will once again be left wondering where he went wrong and what he has to do in order to lose the title of villain. Maybe in book 3 he'll finally get the title and the respect he wants so badly. He might even get the girl too - not, that he wants the girl or anything. ;)
Good Points
New characters add more variety.
