Rezension zu "Hot Air: A Villainous Love Story" von T.J. Land

Weird, cringy, funny, oddly realistic
Sakukovor 10 Monaten

Judge Justice is one of Mercy Citys heros, a leather-clad, grumpy divorcee with 5 cats who can control ropes. He'd been on prohibition the last year, after overdoing the violence one day.
The day he is back, his old nemesis comes back out of retirement too.
Bluster is the most talentless super-villain around, even though he can control wind. But he's not all that clever, he's uncoordinated, his banter and his plans suck and he's lost against pretty much every hero he ever fought. But the Judge respects his tenacity, at least he always get's back up and tries again.
Then a super-power leeching villain comes into town. He's been stealing and hoarding weather powers, so he might just be after Bluster next, so Judge Justice is trying to protect Bluster, while Bluster is trying to apprehend the Leech (no one is stealing his nemesis, not on his watch!).

That was different. It's certainly not your regular super hero story or romance story, for that matter.
It's a bit weird, kinda funny and realistic in a body odor and grayed-out underwear kind of way.

It takes all that incidental silver age weirdness and makes it cannon, but it also makes it less glittery-shiny and more grubby-normal, but maybe that's just because Judge Justice is the main character and he's very much one of the dark and brooding superheroes. It's a bit hard to explain. It's cringy funny at times, but also strangely real sometimes.

That said, I did have fun reading it. I liked the relationship development. It's a rather slow burn until they even realize for themselves that they are attracted to each other, though it does pick up speed after that. It's pretty cute at times, though the whole thing defies most of the usual romance tropes, quite on purpose, I'm sure, and pretty much does it's own thing.

The secondary cast was pretty good and I liked to hate the villain of the piece, such a slime-bag. Great resolution, though.
