Dave Hooper has a hangover from hell, a horrible ex-wife, and the fangs of the IRS deep in his side. The last thing he needs is an explosion at work. A real explosion. On his off-shore oil rig. But this is no accident, and despite the news reports, Dave knows that terrorists aren't to blame. He knows because he killed one of the things responsible. Killing a seven-foot-tall, tattooed demon has transformed the overweight, balding safety manager into something else entirely. A foul-mouthed, beer-loving monster slayer, and humanity's least worthy Champion.

I stumbled across this online and being a fan of Birmingham, I had to check it out.

This is a satire of the superhero genre and should be considered as such when you read it.

The premise is basically, what happens when the least likely person to become a hero, becomes one?

Dave Hooper is a foul-mouthed, beer-swilling, coke-snorting rig worker on the run from the IRS, his wife's divorce lawyer and the odd husband.

After landing on his rig in the Gulf of Mexico, he accidently kills a demon and inherits all sorts of power. Does he use them for good or just his own betterment?

Absolute rubbish, what a time waste writing this unbelievable garbage. An insult to any intelligence. Never again will I read anything from this "author".
