I encountered this story first of all on Podiobooks, and it's a testament to how engaging a story it is that I listened to the whole thing, despite what I would have to rate as the worst audiobook performance I have ever heard. (The reader's delivery wasn't just flat; what emphasis he did put in was reliably in the wrong place.)

Second time around, several years later, I read the ebook, and again, the story kept me engaged despite the fact that it needs a good editor. There are missing words, ad

LEAGUE OF NOTHING: Rebirth by Jim Zoetewey

LEAGUE OF NOTHING is the first storyline in Jim Zoetewey’s series focusing on a league of super hero teens in and around the Grand Lake, Chicago area. As part of the FBI National Hero Program (Super Human Affairs Branch) the original league disbanded in 1983. With the resurgence of evil villains, the new crop of super heroes, are the grandchildren of the original league members. The New Heroes League, as the media has named them, will face off against a

The grandchildren of famous superheroes decide to take over and rid the world of all the evil. Taking it under themselves to be vigilantes and work their way from stopping petty theft's to fighting well known villain's will prove a bit difficult but not impossible for this young group of Superheroes.

I absolutely loved this book. Now, I was willing to give this book a try because I love me some superheroes but this was totally out of the genres I usually read in. Who doesn't love teen superheroes

Back in World War II there was a group of Superheroes who fought crime and villains and had their headquarters underground at a downtown shop. There were the telepathic, the one that could run up to 200MPH, the wolf, the rocket, and more. These heroes were also family men who had kids and grand kids that had their ability. The grand kids one day came up with the idea to do what their grandparents did and fight crime. That is where things start to go wrong they have men following them, the mayor ...more

In a world where superheroes are real, Nick Klein never meant to follow in his grandfather's shoes.

I first read The Legion of Nothing on a whim. I was looking for a new online story to read after finishing Sailor Nothing. I wasn't sure what I was walking into--a serialized superhero story? But I haven't been disappointed yet.

Rebirth includes Book I from Zoetewey's website (and I highly recommend checking out the rest of the series). It's a good, solid start. The characters are mostly introduce

I've been following the story as it develops online. It is a very fun and unique spin on both the superhero and young adult genres. Great insight in the mind of a teenage genius. Lots of geeky inside jokes too.

Jim Zoetewey grew up in Holland, Michigan, near where L Frank Baum wrote The Wizard of Oz and other books in that series. Admittedly, Baum moved away more than sixty years before Jim was even born, but it's still kind of cool.

Jim didn't attain his goal to never leave school, but did prolong his stay as long as possible. He majored in religion and sociology at Hope College, gaining enough credits t
