I read this on a few subway journeys on the iPhone (freely downloaded from feedbooks.com using Stanza).
It's pulp-y and throwaway, a novel built around 2 or 3 nice ideas. The characters are paper thin, which is ironic given that 90% of them are bulge-muscled superheroes.
Instead of this, read Harrison's 'Deathworld'. The direct influence of that book is clearly seen in all kinds of subsequent sci-fi, most notably Avatar.
