You don’t see enough villains these days

i love villain stories and there aren’t a lot of them and this one is good


Why this story is good : 

      It has a nonhuman, extremely intelligent protagonist who gradually learns more about a well constructed superhero sci-fi/fantasy world.  Come to think of it, there's a lot of fics similar to this at the top of the rankings here.  (Threadbare, Everyone Loves Large Chests).  Unlike those fics, this one has a more interesting setting - it's very similar to Worm, but better thought out.  

      Another difference, something that grabbed my attention in the first few chapters, is our protagonist is smart.  In the other similar fics, the protagonist starts out a barely animate object with about 1 point in INT - while this leads to some hijinks, the character has no agency, everything is just luck.  In this fic, our protagonist is making the best choices it can with the knowledge it has right from the first chapters.  (with some mistakes as a result of incomplete knowledge).  Another interesting thing is our character is not OP, but not a pushover with no agency either.  


Please! Not so great! It hurts!

Easily one of the best superpower world fictions I have enjoyed finding and has lots of well designed scenes that are super easy to visualise as it's being read. Would make a great anime.

Pale imitation

Don’t judge a book by its cover art or title

From the shitty face doodles for cover art, I thought this was going to be another crayon eating story about superheros. Boy was I wrong. Well deserved front page ranking with excellent flow. The foreshadowing for the school was amazing, I could not have imagined how that would workout until I read it.

I would not be suprised if the author is a pro. The plot and the writing is better then most movies. I can imagine the rights to this story being picked up by Hollywood.


I love the story, keep up the good work. Your main character's perspective and general knowledge is a fun and fresh pov compared to most stories and you've got some okay secondary characters, it's a really good story. Once again, I love the story, please don't go on a hiatus, like, ever

sir chicken

I binge read the entire thing in a day.(chapter 15) Can't wait to get more to read.


Overall very enjoyable read, would recommend

The first time for me writing a review, so lets go with simple way:

Style: I'm not really sure what should be put here, but anyway: Style seems to be good without any visible problems.

Story: Story has a interesting original concept and a good flow, though everything might go a bit too fast for my personal liking, but that is of course completely subjective.

Grammar: Didn't spot any grammar mistakes, but I'm not a native speaker so I might miss some less obvious problems.

Character: The characters seem to be well enough fleshed out, the only problem I had was with MC apparently becoming more or less fluent from nothing in the spoken and written language from just a few days of mingling in the crowds. Sure, it could be explained with that mysterious Human.exe influencing things and the MC being some bio-supercomputer, but that still is botheringly fast... Maybe making the 'drones' in the beginning sometimes speak out loud when the MC is able to hear them?


It's early days, but this is so far the best superhero novel I have read. Tofu is an interesting and unique character and learning about the world as he does from his warped perspective is more than a little entertaining. His power also enables him enormous growth potential, and seeing him grow both mentally and physically is incredibly compelling. Worm by Wildbow could not hook me anywhere near as much as Super Minion at equivalent points in the story. I cannot wait for more.


Keep this on your bookmarks

Reviewed at: Ch32 Dinner Bell

Gogglesbear has given us a very unique and frankly addicting story whose only real flaw is the upload schedule. Full stop. 

Warning: you will get addicted to this story. Any hiatus will destroy your soul. 
Reccomendation: keep this on your bookmarks and make sure you have an alert set up for the second this story gets into a regular schedule.

With that out of the way, here's things you need to know going in:
In most current stories, the main character is a self-insert who you can look at and debate endlessly on what their actions mean for future events based on the morality and mentality you can place on them. The main character here is, surprisingly and ironically, his own person. Tofu is a brilliantly done mc who is also the most interesting character in the story so far. 
Tofu is a droid who has gained sentience in a method which has not yet been revealed, and all of his interactions are brilliantly displayed from the first person narration into the mind of this amazingly complex fish out of water who marvels at all the things we take for granted as humans. granted, he also thinks many of these things are odd, but that's part of his charm.
Beside Tofu are evil organizations, a best friend who just wants a normal life where he doesn't have to worry how he is going to feed himself, a geek friend who just wants to be a superhero but can't seem to get any, a bullied girl with fantastically powerful abilities which have ultimately ruined her life, an evil secretary who is the sweetest person i've ever seen, a boss who regularly throws building sized fire balls and manages to make the whole underground of the city run as a side gig, and much, much more. if I haven't made my point yet, the characters in this superhero story are incredibly well done and unforgettable in their own ways. 

The world is one of superheroes and supervillains, where the good don't always get what they want and nothing is as it seems. Scratch that last part, though, because every single development in this world is presented in a brilliantly smooth manner that builds all the characters beyond what they could have otherwise been. Every event has consequences for every character and none of it crowds out the main story. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone looking for an example on how to build up a world without relying on narrative exposition. 

Spoiler: Spoiler

 Overall, and amazing read with very few grammar errors that I'd pay to read any day. 


Seventh Sage

It’s fun to read from Tofu’s POV. Unique problems he has and their solutions  are interesting to read. Give it a read, you won’t regret it.
