The Legends of Genesis: Not Your Ordinary Heroes (Volume 1)
This may be offensive to some, and it is rated for 15+ AKA Highschool+
However it needs to be as it is strong for the plot, and many characters change significantly because of it. This has a ot of philosophy and it needs to show the bad in the world, in order to correct it. You cannot improve anything, by pretending it doesn't exist or doesn't happen. First identify, then think of a solution, then apply it. That is how things work. So keep in mind that while reading it. There are many themes and things that are said that people will be uncomfortable with. However, it is necessary. It has several plots and all will be solved by the end of the series. Keep an open mind, this is NOT typical in anyway. Neither the characters, powers, situations, plot, or even morals. This is supposed to be more realistic than most shows ever dare to be. A very important part of this is the criticism. As it tries to make people more open and actually become better people, and not pawns in the goverments and societies game. Free will and fate is the ultimate theme in this. Orange and Blue, and Black and White both are big tropes in this as well.
CAUTION!!! (many controversial topics are discussed such as but not limited to, sexism, racism, pedophilia, incest, capitalism, polygamy. conspiracy, history, sex, drugs, etc.)

LOG: The Legends of Genesis
By: Mark McCants
Asian, African, and World mythology
Genre: Fantasy, super power, anime, super hero, wuxia, martial arts, philosophy, historical, romance, action & adventure, sci-fi, prehistoric
Imagine a world where people don't age past their prime. Where a person that would labeled as intellectually gifted on Earth is nothing more than average there. A place where the average person is even more powerful than your typical super hero. A place several times more vast and mysterious than earth, and home to over 50 non hybrid races. Just Imagine how far they would have advanced in the time that we have had. Then imagine how far they would have advanced given 10, 100, or even 1000 times longer than we had. Do you imagine large skyscrapers and flying cars as in your common sci fi flicks and novels. Well, they've advanced far past that even. What would their super heroes be like, and the villains that they have to combine forces to fight against. And how would the planet survive the battles between these people. Not to mention what would everyday life be like? And with their powers would they feel as gods themselves and not have need to reverence them?
In fact, the heroes held a contest and after beating many Shenxian, kami, Orishas, and Immortals they believed they were indeed powerful enough to at least compete with the gods. They challenged the supreme gods and the realm gods. After losing horribly they incurred the supreme goddess' wrath as punishment. However, she was not satisfied with just punishing them, as she wanted to destroy them completely. However, the supreme god felt that their punishment was enough and that they should be forgiven. Unable to agree they decided to settle it the way gods do. They made bet which would decide whether they would perish or thrive. Six beings would be created, beings much more powerful than any that have ever been created. Two beings would be of light, two would be of darkness, and two neutral ones that would pick a side. The gods would set up challenges for them along the way to train them until the day of the final contest. When that day comes they would fight each other to the death and if light won they would be saved, however if dark won they would all die. Which one would prevail light or darkness? Sounds like your typical fantasy novel right? However, what if when they are born they decide not to be pawns in the god's game? Can and will they defy their destiny even when all their moves are being controlled leading them to that end? And if they do defy the gods what will be the retribution for their actions, and more importantly how will they respond to it?
This story follows the lives of the 6 beings.
The children of Darkness
Titan- (master of dimensions, souls, energy, and matter/anti matter)
The harbinger of destruction. Created to be the most evil and destructive being that has ever walked any realm. He has unsurpassed will power and will do whatever he feels as though is right. He believes in absolute justice and he will serve the criminals with it regardless of what anyone thinks about it. Whoever crosses his path never makes it to jail to say the least. However, although he was created to destroy all good in the world. He is actually quite complex, he is often laid back, show off, and even somewhat sympathetic at times, truly one of the most misunderstood people. But does he care? Probably not.
Nina- (Master of psyche, various elements and forces, space, and the dead)
The prized red gem. She is the genius of geniuses. Able to outwit even the smartest characters, she has her own will, she doesn't mind the idea of fighting the others as she sees it as nice challenge. However, if she does she'll do it on her own terms and hers alone. Many see her as a demoness and quite manipulative. Of course by some standards she is. However as far as wanting to kill the others and all life. She is not fond of that idea at all. Although if someone could get rid of humans, she might just turn a blind eye to it. She figures since the gods have made their own game to see if all creations should perish. She will make her own to see if new worlders will, if nothing else at least humans. She may seem cold and uncaring but she in fact is the very opposite.
The children of Light
Emerald- (elemental master, spirit and sentient, energy, matter and fusion)
The prized green gem. She is the closest to what you would call a hero of the six, however not nearly as stupid as one. She believes in second chances and the good will prevail. She wants to live a simple life full of love and happiness even though it was prophesied that she will be surrounded in pain and sadness. She takes each step counting on her unrivaled intuition. She believes she does not have to fight the others. She thinks that if she tries hard and doesn't budge then she will get her happy ending eventually. She is very sweet and cares about all life no matter how seemingly insignificant or seemingly important. She will do what she feels is the right path for her to take no matter what others think or do.
Sapphire (Master of copying and reversing, Time, and various elements)
The prized blue gem. A very eccentric girl and fun loving restless girl, that has no respect for traditional norms, or ethics that are in place. She says whatever is on her mind, and when it comes to it. She has a strong will and desire to do things her way and to protect her sister. She is very sweet and also quite the opposite depending on who it is and what they did. She operates on logic and uses her abilities to fulfill any desires she wants. If she wants to know something she will find out.
The neutral children
Rage (master of reality, mystic, and various elements.)
Heavens fury. Rage is a very witty guy who is almost always finding the humor in something. His powers change based on his emotion however he is able to change that at will. Which makes him the most difficult person to tell what he really feels about something as he is unsurpassed in his acting skill. However, he is actually a very simple man. He uses his emotions as a defense to hide his true feelings. He is one of the most sympathetic of the group and without his ability to manipulate his own emotions he would probably be on the couch eating ice creams half of the time. Since he manipulates his own emotions so much he is not too sure about his real feelings or desires. What is his reality is the question he often asks himself. The only thing he knows for sure is that he would do anything to protect his sister.
Dragon (master of magic, various elements, and death)
The death emperor. Dragon is quite the elitist well at least until he met the others. However a bit of that remains. He rarely shows weakness or lets down his poise. As the son of death you can bet he had a rough childhood. He likes to put that behind him. However if not for that he might actually live up to his name. Everyone but the ones close enough, see Dragon as indestructible and unrealistically cool. Its all a show though. Truth be told he gets lonely and is afraid often. Although he doesn't want to admit it. He's a bad decision maker. He always needs someone to decide for him, and as such he's a momma's boy.
This story has hundreds of characters all with their own goals and interest. Full of unexpected plot twists and turns that will keep you guessing at each turn of the page. Volume 1 deals with the introduction of the main characters but is by no means slow paced. It pulls you right into the ever evolving and expanding world. Filled with action, romance, comedy, and philosophy that will have you rethink everything. This is anything but ordinary, and one thing to keep in mind is that nothing is as it seems.Are you ready for an emotional roller coaster, that is not only entertaining but will give you something to think about long after you put the book down.
