By reading this, you are hereby contractually obligated to read this book. Don't worry! Yes, it is a chapter book with no pictures, but you might still enjoy it. It's about this terribly corrupt... More > and lazy cop named Wayne Williams who puts on a mask so he won't be caught breaking the law to break his case. The problem is that someone mistakes him for a superhero and he gets stuck playing the part. Before you know it there's spandex and supervillains, secret identities and sidekicks... all of that stuff. They're all calling him the Black Dog. He's even got a psychotic sidekick called the Little Bitch that's trying to sniff his butt! The poor bastard keeps trying to escape responsibility, but when you're a superhero, that's something you just can't do.

The mayor sighed and said, “Kincade, are all these plans ways to keep the prison transport... More > on the 40?”
Kincade looked confused and answered hesitantly, “Yeah.”
“Oh, Kincade,” the mayor said rubbing his face, still trying to wake up. “I didn't want you to come up with a politician's plan. That's my job. I'm doing that... well, I'm trying to do that.”
Kincade looked at him confused.
“I want you to come up with a combat plan. I want you to come up with the plan that we really, really don't want to have to use. If there's traffic on US-40. If the prison transport takes the bypass. If Impossible's men attack the transport in Freeport. If they succeed. Then we need your plan.”
“That's not going to happen,” declared Kincade.
“But if it does, Kincade,” said the mayor gravely. “If it does, then I have to know. How do you plan to stop Mister Impossible?”< Less
