Muhahaha, I'm General Pandemonium, the galaxy's most sensational new super villain. In just a few hours I'm going to turn you all into bare-bottomed buffoons! Hi, I'm Charlie Applejack, I'm the galaxy's most exciting new superhero. There's just one problem though - everyone else thinks I'm rubbish. Is it a falling bird? Is it an out-of-control plane? No, it's Boy Zero, Wannabe Hero. After being dumped by the Super School, Charlie Applejack's career as a crime fighter might be over before it's even begun. However, when the evil villain and wannabe rock star General Pandemonium captures all of the world's superheroes, and threatens to vaporise every pair of pants on the planet, it's up to Charlie to save the day. Will he be a hero - or will he be a zero? About the Author Peter Millett was born in New Zealand. He was first published aged nine when one of his humorous poems appeared in the national press.
