Just finished the Milkweed Triptych by Ian Tregillis a WWII/Cold War super soldier romp,
very good.

Next is a Victoriana superhero series called the The Society of Steam by the Andrew P Mayer.

Have a look at Austin Grossman's darkly humorous


Soon I Will Be Invincible

Doctor Impossible—evil genius, diabolical scientist, wannabe world dominator—languishes in a federal detention facility. He's lost his freedom, his girlfriend, and his hidden island fortress.

Over the years he's tried to take over the world in every way imaginable: doomsday devices of all varieties (nuclear, thermonuclear, nanotechnological) and mass mind control. He's traveled backwards in time to change history, forward in time to escape it. He's commanded robot armies, insect armies, and dinosaur armies. Fungus army. Army of fish. Of rodents. Alien invasions. All failures. But not this time. This time it’s going to be different...

Fatale is a rookie superhero on her first day with the Champions, the world's most famous superteam. She's a patchwork woman of skin and chrome, a gleaming technological marvel built to be the next generation of warfare. Filling the void left by a slain former member, we watch as Fatale joins a team struggling with a damaged past, having to come together in the face of unthinkable evil.

Soon I Will Be Invincible is a thrilling first novel; a fantastical adventure that gives new meaning to the notions of power, glory, responsibility, and (of course) good and evil

The Wildcards books when they first were published long ago. And Soon I Will Be Invincible by Austin Grossman.

"Loved those." I'm more of a comics fan when it comes to superheroes. Jack Kirby's Fourth World stuff is surreally sublime.  Wink

Just enjoyed "Don't Be A Hero!!" by Chris Strange. Set in a world where meta humans have mostly left Earth for the Moon, what happens when a super villain rises again in Neo - Auckland. Recommended !
