Doctor Kimber Wellington has returned home to Chicago with nothing to his name, not even enough money for underwear. Accompanied by his adopted nanny, Igor, he’s convinced he’s hit rock bottom, and his year in Sand City was a delusion of some sort.
Until he hears the city wants him back. Not as a physician – but as a superhero. Unable to forgive himself for his past mistakes, and convinced no one else who knows the truth about him will want him around, he nonetheless returns to Sand City for the sake of those he cares about.
His newest challenge: allowing himself to become the man he needs to be in order to heal the city and win over the beautiful supervillainess running it.
If anyone can do it, the Doctor can. All he needs is a cape and a little help from his sidekicks.
Kimber is struggling through the majority of this book. He moves back in with his father, isolates himself. One freak incident where he saved a man left him running back to Reader, motivated to actually do good and be a hero. He sucks at it though. So this is his journey to getting grips on things, coming to terms with himself and those around him. It was interesting to see his development, but at the same time it wasn’t the best of developments because it all came out at the end, leaving the rest of the story with him still being insecure and unsure of himself and everything/everyone else.
Reader on the other hand, went through some major changes. She is now in control, no longer having to fear when her brother will kill her, because she killed him first. She’s fighting a war with her father, and an even bigger, more persona one with herself. To let someone in is a difficult thing when they always find a way to rip their way out, and she still manages to muster up the courage to take a leap with Kimber. Reader is strong, determined, and passionate about her cause. She won’t take no for an answer, but she is also more compassionate. It was nice to see her character change.
We touch more on the police and the battle between Reader, her father, and Kimber. Not much is built on, though we do get to see more of some neighborhoods and a few more character relationships.
I enjoyed reading Supervillainess (part 2), mainly because Reader kept me entertained. I would reccomnd art one and two if you’re the type to enjoy quick, fun reads. This isn’t one to be taken too seriously.
