When their parents turn out to be supervillains, six teens discover their own powers and rebel in a big way, not only defeating their parents but also trying to atone for the parents' crimes. Among the six, young Karolina learns that she's a Majestanian-an alien with a luminous body-and she eventually meets the life partner her parents had chosen for her: the nongendered alien Xavin, member of the shape-shifting Skrull species. Because Karolina is a lesbian, Xavin assumes the female form for her. The series has won Eisner and Harvey awards, was selected as a YALSA top ten, and is up to seven volumes. For teens up, this hardback collects issues 1-18.-Martha Cornog, Philadelphia Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
