Anthony plans on spending the summer playing video games while his parents are away on a business trip. He invites his friend from a coffee shop over to have a movie marathon. But his plans are ruined when Smash Brannagan storms into his house asking about Mavara. Anthony has no idea who she is and he gets his dad’s gun in defense. When Smash doesn’t back down, Anthony shoots and kills him. This immediately makes him a member of the Infinite Seven. Whoever kills a member takes their place and has to go by their name. Though Anthony killed Smash, he doesn’t think he’s powerful enough to be part of the Infinite Seven. But he is able to use his video game knowledge to work alongside them to find and defeat Mavara.
This graphic novel was very good. The group of “superheroes” reminded me of Marvel groups.
The way that Anthony figured out a way to use his computer skills to fight with everyone else was very clever. I think kids would be able to relate to this since video games are so popular today.
The ending of the story had a good twist. It really hooked me and made me want to read more. I’m going to have to look for the next volume.
