The Sidekicks Initiative

By Barry J. Hutchison

Once, they stood next to justice. Now they’re standing up for it…

When sworn protectors of Earth, the Justice Platoon, are all horribly killed, their former arch-enemies come crawling out of the woodwork. Outnumbered, outgunned, and out of options, the US Government has no choice but to activate the Sidekicks Initiative, dragging the Platoon’s middle-aged ex-sidekicks out of retirement.

Now these three reluctant, out of shape former child-wonders must work together to stop the rising tide of supervillainy, avenge their former mentors’ deaths, and bring the world back from the brink of destruction.

Assuming they don’t kill each other first.

Featuring anaphylactic shockwaves, unexpected hippos, and an aggressive man shouting at butterflies, The Sidekicks Initiative is the first book in the action-packed new series from internationally bestselling Space Team author, Barry J. Hutchison.

Praise for Sidekicks

Yet another rip roaring story of humour and absurdity. This was a laugh out loud parody of all super heroes stories on screen, in comics or in the imagination of kids and adults all over the world.” – Amazon Review

A frankly absorbing mish-mash of the old DC and Marvel Comic heroes gone mad, bad or extinct.” – Amazon Review

Just the right amount of cool and laughs with the authors usually madness thrown in.” – Amazon Review

There is a lot to like about this book, wit, charm, likeable characters, and it’s good old fashioned ridiculous fun.” – Amazon Review
