Jon and Ian are the sons of the famous Batman and Superman, but their fathers are busy saving the world elsewhere. Wyndemere, their city, and Jon’s mom, Lois Lane, are in danger from a virus that is spreading without a known cause. Jon and Ian join with Tilly and Candace, two girls with their own strengths, to try and find the enemy and be the heroes.
This is the second book in the series, and much like the first there is a lot of jumbled action. The book jumps around a lot and there are a lot of story lines going on at the same time, which makes it hard to remember the main story conflict. The illustrations are appealing and the idea of Batman and Superman’s sons taking on their own challenge is appealing, but I don’t think there is enough to keep readers invested in the series.
