The heroic cast of rag-tag, superpowered kids are back!
In this third installment of the highly illustrated series, can the Stupendous Switcheroo change his fate from #1 undesirable prisoner to top student at the Valor Innovations Academy?


When the Stupendous Switcheroo—Switch, for short—set out to rescue his mom from supervillain jail, he never imagined he could be captured instead.

Now, Switch is plotting his escape—but a failed attempt quickly proves it’s an impossible mission. But then, mastermind Vin Valor offers Switch a bargain: he can remain a prisoner… or he can join the Valor Innovations Academy instead.

Switch is reluctant to choose between two evils—but maybe the resources at VIA will help him finally find a way back home. What he finds instead is a web of sinister secrets—and the family robot, Al, who has snuck into VIA to be Switch’s sidekick in disguise!

It turns out reclaiming his freedom isn't the hardest mission—but figuring out where to go next sure is....
