i really can't be bothered to give an advanced review so i'll keep this simple.

this novel makes me feel

1. happy

2. warm

3. fuzzy

if you like feeling any of those three things when you read then i recommend this novel.

it also has what id describe as silly action which is fun.

OK last bit, basically the MC is a naive and innocent(?) bio-weapon and the novel is basically him stumbling through a world of super heroes and villains so if that'd interest you maybe try reading it.

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.

Worm'd it's way into my favorites

Reminds me of worm, and if that isn't enough reason for you to start reading this well we've got different taste so nothing I say about great characters, world building, and plot will.

Its written well enough that I couldn't put it down, I wanted more. The main character manages to be a wonderfully written non human character. Who is socially clueless which he gets away with by luck and human love quirks. While maintaining a believable non deus ex machina feel. 

Side characters seem like they will have nice actual stories behind them and not just a plot device.  

World building is well integrated and makes sense as Main character learns as we learn. 

Story is okay so far i love the way it's going but not a whole lot has happened besides escape from lab. 

Any grammar mistakes haven't been immersion breaking

Exceptional, but too short

The beginning can be confusing since the MC doesn't understand or knows the name for various things, but it's all worth it.

My only complaints: TOO SHORT and interludes are a waste of time (for the author. For the reader they are kinda fun just nowhere near the main content)

BRILLIANT IN IT'S SCOPE AND FOCUS

My dear author,

You've done it. You had an idea and wrote a story set in a superhero/supervillain universe without making it about heroes or villains. I can't tell you how great it is, mainly because I was getting really bored of the melodramatic paper thin plots you get with superheroes/supervillains.

You used a main character (because "it" is not a hero or a villain) that can credibly exist and let the reader learn about the world surrounding it. You also made the character have an actual progression with the stuff it is learning.

Oh boy oh boy. It's so fantastic I could shit my pants and it would not make me grin any less when reading your story. And what a story it is. No useless melodrama, side characters are not any less human human then the average people you meet on the street and dialogs flow like mountain springs in the middle of the spring.

Seriously, I would kiss you had I known you.

Five stars.

Fun read with a different MC

Our protagonist is in no way human... but "he" had human.exe running and trying to make him more like one. This results in a regularly comedic life of a "villain" or minion in a super powered world of mutants. To top it off, it is "odd summer," a time when more people mutate or gain powers and oddness abounds. All of this is pushing the protagonist along in different ways where his basic desire is for an endless supply of sugar and amino acids.

But who else is in this world? Lots of normal people all the way from kids to geezers. Some corportate types of questionable morals which led to our protagonist's "birth." Villains, some of which would cringe at how readily the protagonist kills things. Mutants! The outcasts of society but their numbers grow and they can be pretty decent folk. The cops are a generally decent bunch but underpowered and overworked in this odd land. And finally, the heroes... which range from bloodthirsty mercenaries on the side of "justice" all the way up to superpowered bastions of goodness and might.

What could go wrong when the protagonist falls into a life of crime in a world like that? Read on and see!

At last some original content.... I'm hooked up

Style: The story follows MC's point of view...Nothing new but what new is that MC is not human. And because he is not human, we get to see some different perspective, the other side of the curtain... A cold calculating mind still learning about the new world he finds himself in and that's what makes it interesting.

Story: Story is a fresh of breath air. A trendsetter for sure. Some ideas like odd summer are intriguing to say the least which in turn increase the ambience of the story.

Grammar: I don't pay much attention to every detail when I'm reading so many a gaps are filled automatically by my brain. There are no glaring flaws in the sentencing or grammar to break your flaw. That doesn't mean it does not have any , many of them (gleefully)  pointed out by fellow amateur proofreaders ( grammar Nazis)..... uhm

Character: The characters are shown through the eyes of the MC. They are fleshed out enough to not look fake. Each of them have appropriate reasons to do what they do. Have their own quirks and personalities which sets it apart from many a stories posted on this site. And how many times do we get a glimpse of the villainous side....Right?
