The Extraordinary Adventures of Ordinary Boy: The Great Powers Outage or also known as TEAOB: Book 3, I suggest you read the first two because you would grasp more things in this book. In this book, an unknown villain strikes after being released after 50 years because of good parole but the original sentence was 1636 years. Ordinary Boy is confronted with yet another mystery. The unraveling of this mystery will answer some deep questions about how Superopolis was formed, its history, and ultimately the source of all the superpowers. Ordinary boy continues to shine as a role model. He is a fine example of logical thinking and leadership. He cares for his friends and his family and when faced with hard moral decisions, he does what is right like Thomas from the Maze Runner because he also cares about everyone and decides what is best for them. Also some of the protagonists are similar too as The Red Menace/ Amazing Indestructo and Gally are consumed by Greed. The book starts off with Comrade Crunch, AI’s(Amazing Indestructo) new spokesman for his new line of potato chips, talking the whole town into loving their chip over Dr.Telemore’s potato chips. Ordinary Boy is in awe at his ability to sway the whole crowd and make them do his will. When Ordinary Boy discovers that Comrade Crunch is really the Red Menace, one of the most dangerous criminals of all time, he knows the city is in trouble and has to find a way to save the city. Find out what happens !!
