Topic: Help writing a superhero story
June 16, 2019 / By Erik Question:
I've started writing a novel that is the first of three, and I've given it a quick and simple name so that I could put it up on a site that could potentially get me published. The thing is, I don't know if it fits right.
Here's the basic idea, like what would be on the back of the book:
Three teens- Sam, Christopher, and Lauren- know that they are different. After all, the average human does not have super strength, or control flames, or make Mother Nature bend to their will. Trained for five years at the infamous Academy, the three are ready to defend the Government as Agents. What they haven't realized is that beyond the walls of their beloved Academy, trouble is brewing.
And to have a little /more/ info, the setting is in 400 years. In 200 years, the apocolypse comes, and 200 years later is the setting. (So they have books and writing, but no guns or bombs.) There are certain people in this time period, because of the whole apocolypse thing, who have what are called Gifts (For example- the fire control and superstrength mentioned at the top), and they are sent to The Academy to be trained to be Governmental Agents.
What basically happens is that the main character, Sam, finds out that her sheltered little world is not exactly the way it is portrayed. The Government, which basically runs the world right now, is actually headed by an evil young man that Sam knows personally, who aims to take over the world.
It has a very convoluted and connected plot, and it would take forever to explain (and I don't want it to be stolen), but Sam is betrayed several times by this boy, by her best friend, and by the school where she has been for the past five years, so the tentative title right now is "Betrayed".
This novel is fantasy, obviously, and aimed at teens. (Sam is fifteen.)
Any suggestions are welcome. =]

really good idea reminds me of x-men and that teenager superhero school a bit but dw its not copied just the superhero academy thing ive seen elsewhere, but you are making it your own with the plot and the whole apocolypse thing, so you can truly make it your own and it will be much better than these people who do the same story as everyone else over and over :D
the title is good i dno if you could change it or not, but the title you got does fit. but im not good at coming with titles so i cant really help you out with that. but i think i would read that kinda thing and it would be even cooler if there was a movie version of it :D
That actually sounds pretty good! I have read a book that is almost like it and the second book is called Chasing Yesterday #2 Betrayal and it is about a girl that wakes up after and explosion and knows nothing about herself but she doesn't know that she has powers to move things with her mind, so there are people that are after her for these powers so she is on the run away from them for a couple weeks. Eventually she gets captured by the people and they take her some where to train her to kill but then she figures out what they are r doing to her and saves everyone else. THE END!! and it really reminded me of that story and it has almost the same tittle but not the same! But to answer you question i think it fits well!
WOW THAT IS SOOOOOOOOOO GOOD!!!!! i loved it !!!!! tell me the website !!!
