The Cape: Overdrive is a book following the adventures of Paladin, Blurr, and Thief in their pursuit of saving the world. The Capes must save the world from falling into a massive war when an asteroid worth a quintillion dollars is spotted in outer space, set on a course for Earth. Everyone wants to possess the asteroid, including all the evil Super-Normals. Whoever possesses even a small fraction of this asteroid will become the richest person (or country) in the world.
The Cape: Overdrive is an excellent addition to the Dark Spores series. Sebastian continues to use his wealth to create suits that turn him into a Super-Normal and his alter ego, Paladin, in order to protect the streets of Chicago, that in recent years have become a lot crazier. After many Normals were changed into Super-Normals, the dynamic of the planet has changed; it again turned into a war between differences. A lot deadlier war, a war in which the Super-Normals had to choose a side, a side between humanity or evolution of humanity.
