This volume started off with a really strong first chapter. It was hilarious and campy.
I was much less impressed with the rest of the volume, however. I went from enjoying the absurdism of the universe to cringing at the plot.
Basically: teenagers are being used by the villain as batteries, and this is explained to be a metaphor for how older generations think teenagers are parasites who are constantly on their smartphones.
3.5 stars for crocodiles with guns on their heads, a cockatiel villain, and Wolverine.
