  1. I'll second a bunch that have already been mentioned: the Ex-Heroes series, the Confessions of a D-List Supervillain series, Nobody Gets the Girl, and Soon I Will be Invincible are all really fun. Especially Ex-Heroes. That series is a just-one-more-chapter, hard-to-put-down, kind of read. Several more that I haven't seen mentioned and very much enjoyed: How to Succeed in Evil (funny and really excellent, there are a couple of sequels): https://www.amazon.com/How-Succeed-Evil-Patrick-McLean-ebook/dp/B00589W1DM/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1524749842&sr=1-1&keywords=how+to+succeed+in+evil They Tell Me I'm the Bad Guy (thematically somewhat similar to Confessions of a D-List Supervillain, but darker): https://www.amazon.com/They-Tell-Me-Bad-Guy-ebook/dp/B0064S8ATK/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1524749892&sr=1-1&keywords=they+tell+me+I'm+the+bad+guy Super-Powereds (this series is more young adult and the editing/grammar leaves a lot to be desired, but still an engaging read): https://www.amazon.com/Super-Powereds-Year-Drew-Hayes-ebook/dp/B00BIJ05F2/ref=sr_1_2?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1524750104&sr=1-2&keywords=superpowereds

    Battle mat dimensions - your input appreciated

    I have started using the convention that 1.5" = 2m for two reasons: (1) 1.5" hexes conveniently fit the bases of Heroclix miniatures, (2) 1.5" = 2m is 1:52 scale, which is actually closer to the 1" = 5 ft (1:60) scale convention that so many other miniatures/terrain bits are designed to represent than 1" = 2m (1:79) or 1" = 1m (1:39).
