Exploding from the pages of Horror, Humor, and Heroes Volume One - it's the full length adventures of the one and only Mechani-Cal! So grab your battlesuit and prepare to get a little nasty. "Being a supervillain means never having to say you're sorry ... Unless it's to the judge or the parole board. Even then, you don't really have to. It's not like it's going to change the outcome or anything." Those are the words of Calvin Matthew Stringel, better known as Mechani-Cal. He's a down on his luck armored villain. Follow his exploits as he gets swept up in a world domination scheme gone wrong and ends up working for these weak willed, mercy loving heroes. Immerse yourself in epic battles and see what it's like to be an outsider looking in at a world that few have ever experienced. Climb into Cal's battlesuit and join him on his journey. Will he avoid selling out his principles for a paycheck and a pardon? Can he resist the camaraderie of being on a super team? Does he fall prey to the ample charms of the beautiful Olympian Aphrodite? How will he survive the jealous schemes of Ultraweapon, who wears armor so powerful it makes Cal's look like a museum piece? See the world of "righteous do-gooders" through the eyes of someone who doesn't particularly care for them ... Revel in his sarcasm and hang on for one wild ride! Just remember - Losing an argument with a group of rioters isn't a good excuse to start lobbing tear gas indiscriminately at them. You've only got so many rounds and it's going to be a long day, so make sure you get as many as possible with each one.

Nothing but a fun, silly piece of good old fashioned science fiction thin on plot and brimming over with inventive tech, enjoyable characters, and dry humor. You can almost feel the author's glee at describing the protagonist's suit enhancements - a story like this could only come from the mind of a...
I enjoyed Bernheimer’s other books so much, I turned around and bought this one (which may be the first sign of serious book addiction). If you missed it, you can catch my reviews of Prime Suspects (a clone scifi thriller) and Horror, Humor, and Heroes (an anthology of Bernheimer’s short fiction).I...
This book was really fun, the author must have had a blast writing it.
This was entertaining. I enjoyed it. Kept the action at a steady pace, but the editing errors bugged me and some of the writing sounded a little too trite.
