    *Starred Review* Logan, a 12-year-old foundling with an eidetic memory and diagnosed autism, thinks that there is something decidedly odd about his latest set of prospective foster parents. His suspicions are confirmed when an actual supervillain with earthquake powers suddenly attacks, forcing them to reveal their true identities as superheroes Ultra-Quantum and Quicksilver Siren. Alas, their quixotic plan to adopt a child (they can't make one, since he isn't actually a material being and she's a space alien) and live as an ordinary family is put on hold when elusive Necros, a supervillain who can kill with a touch, launches a nefarious scheme to free the secret, and heretofore tightly regulated, community of supers from all bureaucratic restraints. Over the strenuous objections of his new caregivers, Logan not only refuses to stay safely out of the conflict but takes an active role in settling it. Fortunately, he turns out to be as resourceful as he is stubborn and has a staunch ally in Elena, an unusually tall and strong neighbor who, unlike his teachers and a clutch of local bullies, takes Logan's extreme frankness and tendency to overshare in stride. Peters folds laughs and action aplenty into a winning series opener that features both a ka-pow! premise and a particularly memorable addition to the recent uptick of neurodivergent narrators. "That," to quote Logan's mantra, "is a fact." Final illustrations not seen. Grades 4-6. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
