Review: Miles Taylor is in a new middle school and is dealing with the school bully. When he goes to his dad’s construction site, Miles witnesses an alien attack which is thwarted by the superhero Gilded. Just before Gilded dies, he gives Miles his cape telling him that he is now Gilded. The cape can only be used to help others, not for personal gain nor, Miles learns with dismay, to get back at the school bully. Use of the cape and harnessing the accompanying superpowers brings the realization that being a superhero is hard work. Visual enhancement features a change from prose to graphic novel style whenever Gilded is in action.
