The first season is absolutely fantastic, but then it sadly starts to slowly get worse and worse until the last season that is barely worth watching. However, the first season is so good that you still will have a really good time watching it.

This is a cool show, but I have only watched up to season three. I fell off when I had to wait for a new season. I might take it up again if I get time.

Sheriff Jack Carter and his daughter accidentally stumbles upon Eureka, and Jack ends up being hired as the new sheriff in town. He got more than he bargained for when he has to deal with all the quirky geniuses living in Eureka and their crazy experiments.

This is probably the movie that really started the spurt of superheroes movies. It is also the first in a line of X-Men movies. I Really love this movie, but I am not exactly sure if I have watched all the other X-Men movies. I think I need to set of a day for a X-Men marathon soon.

Supporting them are also Black Widow, Hawkeye and Nick Fury.
This is among the best superheroes movies Marvel has made. Probably because so many of them are tossed together in one movie.

Super Powereds: Year 1 (Super Powereds #1) by Drew Hayes
To become a super hero you have to take the Hero Certification Program in college, and only a handful of those starting it will be able to get to the final year. Among this years freshmen at Lander University, one of the top universities with a Hero Certification Program, there are five fresh students that are not as the rest of the aspiring heroes. They are former powereds, people with abilities like the supers but without the ability to control them. Powereds have always been treated like second class citizens and a burden. However these five are the first prototypes for a new highly classified experiment that have managed to turn powereds to a super. They have been those into the Hero Certification Program at Lander University as a trail by fire to see if they can compete against supers.
Super Powereds is one of the better series I have read in a while. Great long books. They are akin to the magical school type of books, but with college age students instead of the commonly younger age group. There are five main characters, and the author has actually managed to distribute the focus fairly among them.
Is Super Powereds: Year 1 good?
Like Super Powereds, Alphas is also about a group of people with super powers that are under close observation by scientists. But instead of going to college they are mostly a little older and going after bad guys instead.
