Today we're thrilled to be joined by Jennifer Estep on Heroes and Heartbreakers. Jennifer's latest release in her Bigtime series, Fandemic, came out on June 2. Fandemic focuses on superheroes and supervillains in Bigtime, New York, and specifically a superfan who has to come to their rescue. Jennifer is here today to talk about some superheroes we're familiar with and to let us know that even though with great power comes great responsibility, it can also come with a lot of fun. Thanks, Jennifer!
Note: This post contains spoilers for the shows Arrow and The Flash. If you haven't watched the season finale's of either show, we suggest you a) go do that right now—for the Cliff Note's version, we have a recap of the Arrow finale, here!, and b) read with caution. You've been warned!
I’ve always loved superheroes.
As a kid, I remember watching reruns of the old Batman show with Adam West and Wonder Woman with Lynda Carter. I loved how bright and colorful and just plain goofy and fun those shows were. I loved the action and adventure and how the heroes always triumphed over the villains.
I still love all those things about superheroes, but these days, I also love the relationships—the romantic entanglements, the friendships, the mentorships, even the rivalries between the heroes and villains.
