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.
  • Advertisement:
  • 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.

How well does it match the trope?
