When six-year-old Reginal Sodowsky escaped the assailants who killed his parents with not so much as a scratch, it became clear that this is no ordinary child. A series of tests soon reveal that not only is Reg not ordinary—he is bionic. His skin shatters weapons and he does not feel pain. As the years go on and after feeble attempts at trying to live a normal life, Reg decides to put his extraordinary powers to good. Dubbed “Flakman” for his ability to repel bullets, Reg’s decision to become a police officer seems like a no brainer.
Flakman’s powers will soon be put to the test when a sinister villain returns to Earth from two billion years ago. Zedifi, a mysterious and monstrous creature, seeks to destroy all bionic life in his quest to control the world. Flakman soon becomes Zedifi’s main target; for once Flakman is out of the way, Zedifi can use the fearsome Heleostrom weapon he created to shatter the freewill of all humankind. The fate of the world rests on Flakman’s young shoulders.
Flakman is the breathtaking debut in author Paul Clements’ trilogy, and a superhero story that entertains, excites, and warms the heart.
