Mavericks was a Web Serial Novel written by a user named Joker. The series explored the superhero genre through a different lens that combines both deconstruction and reconstruction, story-telling aimed at adults and Black Comedy.
Mavericks launched in August 2018 was slated for a rewrite in February 2019.
This series provided examples of:
- Cape Busters: Implied, but it seems SWAT has the capability to deal with anomalous criminals.
- Code Name: In this universe, many of the hero and villain nicknames are created by the press.
- Darker and Edgier: Mavericks relies heavily on Reality Ensues and the tropes of the superhero genre being brought into a world where people react to them realistically.
- World Building: Mavericks is heavily based on worldbuilding. Much of the story is dedicated to the lore of the city, and introducing tons of characters who will be more important later.
