did not like it

I really wanted to love this book...premiss is great I was really excited to delve into a gritty twist on your run of the mill superhero story.
What I got was a juvenile, sarcastic string of clichés.
The writer does not trust the reader to be able to jump to any conclusion no matter how obvious and so everything is spelled out in painful repetitive chunks.
I did not like a single character , they were all flat with no development, the females were all there to aid in teenage boys' wet dreams and were basically an insult to my gender.
Quip after quip from the detective and others characters were too much and rendered all speech completely false feeling.
At best this felt like a extended piece of fan fiction that really wasn't worth the £2 I paid for it, very disappointed
