Marrow by Preston Norton
The Fantom Institute for Superheroes-in-Training (FIST) is the place where fourteen-year old prodigy, Marrow, just aced his finals. With the ability to smash through walls and leap over a city block in one bound, he’s sure to be placed with one of the best mentors in the Sidekick Internship Program this summer. But when a series of disastrous events lands Marrow on academic probation, he finds himself partnered with Flex–a drunken bum with the power of elasticity.
The two immediately clash, but are forced to overcome their differences to prevent the return of a super villain who has the power to unleash a cataclysm that no one will survive.

Having super powers isn’t always as super as it sounds.
Actually . . . that’s a lie. It’s pretty much awesome.
It was the last day of Finals at FIST (Fantom Institute for Superheroes-in-Training). There were exactly ten of us who had qualified for the Sidekick Internship Program. All fourteen years old. All dangerous in our own unique ways. Based on our scores and overall performance, we would be evaluated and paired up with Superheroes who would serve as our mentors for the summer. With top-notch scores, I could be teamed up with a hero like Nova. Or Apex. Or the most legendary hero of them all . . .
Fantom wasn’t just the founder of FIST. And he wasn’t just a Superhero either. The guy was an icon. A symbol of hope. He was the fastest, strongest, smartest, insert-whatever-awesome-adjective-you-can-think-of-est hero of them all. And the guy had style. Oh man, did he have style.
Legend had it that Fantom was the first of the Supers—merely a kid out on a boat with his parents when the Gaia Comet struck. (It was the foreign radioactive energy of Gaia that gave birth to the Supers.) The comet made impact right where they were sailing, killing Fantom’s parents instantly. However, fate or pure luck allowed Fantom to emerge unscathed, and he was reborn with power unparalleled by any other
Fantom was going to be my mentor. I had already decided that.
