Mr. Smith dissects the internal dynamics of ten superheroes. Most are very popular like fan favorite Wolverine (my husband's favorite), Iron Man, and Thor to name a few. As well as maybe lesser superheroes Green Lantern and Mister Fantastic. Yet, when you read this book, you will understand the reason why Mr. Smith chose to feature the superheroes that he selected.

Mr. Smith pits the different superheroes against each other in the following chapter:

The Best of the Beastly featuring the Hulk vs. Wolverine, Beacons of Imagination featuring Green Lantern vs. Iron Man, Responsibility and the City featuring Batman vs. Spider-Man, Ideals in Action featuring Captain America vs. Mister Fantastic, and Gods in a Longbox featuring Thor vs. Superman.

Mr. Smith finally concludes his thoughts in Contestation of Champions explaining which superhero comes out on top. What I liked about this book is that it is relatable for the present times. The superheroes are not just featured as comic book persona or movie legends but as types of people in the modern world. Mr. Smith writes in a way that everyone can understand without being too "wordy". Pick up a copy of this book today and see if you agree with the superhero that came out on top. ( )
