"Evan Quick, Hero's Log, May the 25... and darn it -- I just can't do this. I'm never going to be a Mask. Get over it Evan."

Evan Quick has spent his whole life dreaming of becoming a hero. Every morning he wakes up and runs through a checklist of test to see if he's developed powers over night, and every day it is the same thing -- nothing. No flying, no super strength, no heat rays or cold beams. No invulnerability -- that always hurt to check -- no telepathy, no magic. Not even the ability to light a light bulb without flipping a switch. And now, he's finally ready to give up.

But then, the class field trip to the Mask Museum is interrupted by a super villain attack, and Evan somehow manages to survive a death ray. Even better, Evan's favorite Mask, Captain Commanding, shows up to save them all -- and when things go very wrong, it's Evan who finds the strength to come to Captain Commanding's rescue.

Yet the hero's reception Evan is expecting never happens. Before he even gets the chance to say hello, Evan is bundled away to The Academy, an institution derisively called The School for Sidekicks by its students. Forced to take classes like Banter Basics and Combat with Dinnerware, while being assigned as an 'apprentice' to Foxman -- a Mask widely considered a has-been -- Evan starts to worry that he'll never be able to save the day...

display_description Evan Quick is a superhero geek in a world where superheroes are real. He longs to wake up one day with superpowers, but everyday the same thing happens--nothing. Then one day on a class field trip, Evan manages to survive a supervillain death ray, and is taken to the Academy for Metahuman Operatives to become a real hero--or so he thought. It turns out the Academy is more for Sidekicks than the real heroes, but it is not without its dangerous secrets.
