A Fresh take on the superhero genre

A really well written take on the superhero genre, I can’t say I’ve read better on this site, it’s not to fast and the build up is really satisfying when something does happen because he isn’t becoming an invincible killing machine of the apocalypse within 1 chapter, a lot of indie authors takes on this genre and who am I kidding even seasoned writers have a really hard time with the pacing in this kind of novel, thing always happen to fast and we end up with half a book of pointless jumping around and then he just gets super strong and his personality does a 180 for the last like 20% of the book, I really love your concept and how you started us at something of a true beginning for your character, I really hope you end up finishing this novel and we see you popping it on Amazon one day!

All-around genre defying excellence

All around excellent fiction. Extremely creative. Detailed without being verbose. Believable character interactions. Extremely imaginative depiction of what a several week old lab grown bioweapon, who isn't innately evil, but has little to no context about the world would act like when presented with various situations and scenarios. A very well-done fish out of water story with a likeable and sympathetic character, despite the character being thoroughly non-human. 

The world building is also quite inventive -- taking inspiration from superhero tropes, but with enouhg innovation and twists to make the work very original overall. Even with the narrow slice of the world we've seen so far, the world building seems vast and thoughtful. Excellent work on the authors part. 

If you usually don't like superhero stories, I'm willing to bet it's because of the genre's tendancy toward 2d characters and the cartoony motivations held by heroes and villains alike. Or maybe their tendancy towards implausable behavior and contrived scenarios that require serious suspension of disbelief. If that's the case, I bet you'll still like this fiction just fine.

Give this story a shot. You won't be disappointed.

I had a lot of misgivings before actually reading this story. I normally don't like superhero stories, the few I read were mediocre at best. So I didn't start with the best of feelings into this story. However, it's actually a really great fiction. The world is interesting, the mc is actually cool and fleshed out and the story arc so far is very entertaining.

I would love if there were more chapters coming out, 2 chapters a week are not great news for my addiction.

Reminds me of the Box

Ok so a fresh take on a hero world and our hero is a minion. A slightly sociopathic but loveably innocent Monster. If you can handle a protagonist whose closest definition of morals is returning the favor by any means short of suicide then I highly recommend this darling lackey.

Found account just to recommend

Found my old account I didn't log in to ages just to say I like this.

The style is pretty cool. I'm used to lots of novels on this site having only one theme for any powers they obtain, but this novel gives itself more opportunities by involving robotics, mutations and super powers. I really enjoy the diversity and competition they could all have.

For grammar, I only spotted one tiny error out of the 19 chapters currently released. It's great.

The story itself is basic as can be at the beginning, but that's because the main character is obviously a robot just fighting things. After that (no spoilers, don't worry), it becomes much more enjoyable and has many branching storylines that actually get involved in the main character's life, whether good or bad, it feels natural and enjoyable. Nothing feels truly robotic, just like the super minion.

The protagonist starts off very mechanical and basic in thought processes and functions, but it doesn't last very long. He builds himself with each encounter he has with a person, monster, super hero, facility and even with a piece of food. It's very wholesome and satisfying.
Him alone would be better than average for this website, but the story has many memorable characters that actually feel like people and all have their own quirks that make you actually visualize and notice them each time you read their name. I have nothing to complain about any of the characters, it's very well blended and none of them feel artificial.

Overall, I love the story and I look forward to the future of its world and the protagonist. I hope this becomes more than trending and reach the best rated of this site.

I'll check each monday for this story and appreciate whatever it pops out, since I know the author will always think of something good.

Thank you Gogglesbear.

Definitely a must read on Royal Road.  Even if you aren't a fan of sci-fi or some other tag on the story at least give it a shot I'm sure it'll enthrall you with it's minute yet valuable details, amazing world building and interesting cast of characters.

It is very well written, the only gripe I have is that there aren't enough chapters to feed my addiction. Then again, I can't really blame the author because the chapters are quite long and (I know I've said this already but...) incredibly well written.

This is by far the best of its "genre"

This story is the best one or the only one that does justice to the Hero theme, I just love the world, MC's innocence when it looks or discovers things, internet and phone google search was hilarius, just perfect.

I love shapeshifter stories!!

If Boxxy were created in not a fantasy game world, but futuristic world.... it’s like reading Everyone Loves Large Chests (except the puns)

I love this novel, and I hope it will get higher in the rankings! Go Tofu!
