I enjoyed this book a lot , there were several plot twists and it made you think about what it means to be a villain or in that case a hero.
The power he had was , well, a bit out of the box and creative.

Really great book! I enjoyed the different twist it put on hero vs. villain and I wish there was a sequel! Defiantly a great book, may seem a bit cheesy at times but very well written!

"Even though his father and older brother are both well-known superheroes, 16-year-old Brad just can't hack it at Monroe Academy for Powered Teens. Since he hasn't shown any special abilities, Brad is moved to the school's programme for non-powered students, where he discovers a group of fellow misfits who have some daring ideas about what really makes a hero… or a villain. If you love to root for antiheroes and underdogs, don't miss V is for Villain. And if you're looking for another twisty, high-octane action book that questions the behaviour of so-called superheroes, try Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson."
