The Vindico is about 5 young teens who are kidnapped and taken to train with the Vindico, which are a group of villains with superpowers who have been at war with the Legion of Heroes. The evil mentors search for their apprentices' strengths in order to train them but also exploit their weaknesses in order to make them villains. This book was an interesting twist on the "Teen Superhero Team" subgenre that has become so popular. The teens actually learn more about themselves than they ever would have learned if they had become superheroes. I look forward to reading The Feros.
