9780141030777: Soon I Will be Invincible

Doctor Impossible evil genius, mad scientist, diabolical time-traveller, wannabe world dominator has just broken out of prison. Again. After twelve foiled ploys (doomsday devices, mass mind-control, robot armies, insect armies, alien invasions, etc.), he's not about to be foiled again.

Fatale, a patchwork woman of skin and alloy built by the NSA to be the next generation of warfare, is suddenly given the chance every superhero dreams of: to join the Champions, the once-famous group of beautiful young superheroes who have been newly reunited to stop Dr Impossible. We watch as Fatale becomes part of a team its greatest hero missing, its members struggling with their damaged pasts as they come together in the face of unthinkable evil.

Soon I Will Be Invincible is a wildly entertaining adventure about good and evil, bursting with attitude and humour, that features a cast of superheroes and supervillains with remarkably human emotions, and who inhabit a world strangely similar to our own.
