It's barely a cookbook
by ChasWEarl (2 out of 5 stars)
March 21, 2014

I am a HUGE Dc Comics fan. I am also the father of 10 year old twins who love to cook. So I was excited to see what this cookbook would offer.

Frankly, it's more about decorating dishes in a super hero theme than cooking superhero related dishes.

My kids looked at it and walked away. They are actually more interested in the Disney Princess Cookbook that offers recipes like making homemade bread and jam than placing a bat shaped piece of cheese on a cracker and calling it a batarang.

Super Cookbook
by Orchid Woman (5 out of 5 stars)
August 28, 2014

I purchased this book for an empowerment group that I have with children. I intend to incorporate the recipies/food suggestions into team building groups. I have looked through the book and was impressed by it. True, some of the recipies are not that unique, but, after all, thir focus is for preparing food for children. I appreciate that it provides suggestions for Super Hero themed food that might also encourage children to eat more healthy and diverse menu suggestions. The templates in the back that can be used for applying colored sugar to cookies are a thoughtful addition, as are the Super Hero stickers that can be applied to items that add to the presentation of the food. Illusion and presentation are part of the fun of making meals appealing. I loved the suggestions for embellishing glasses for drinks and lunch bags, etc. Sure, you can go to Pinterest and find anything you want that is themed, but this is all in one book and there is something satisfying to me about having a book to browse through. I showed the cookbook to the kids in the group and they loved it and enjoyed spending time looking through it page by page.

Best Boy's cook book EVER
by Meanie Marie Hinchey (5 out of 5 stars)
February 27, 2014

A friend bought this book for our son for Christmas. He promptly lost it. However, we all loved it so much that we bought a replacement ASAP.

The recipes range from extreemly simple (add blackberrys to your blue gatoraid. It's a Black Mantis drink!) to reasonabley complex (layer cake decorated with rock candy, all made from scratch). They also run the gambit of types of recipes. There is a decent mix of breakfasts, sandwiches, sides, main dishes, drinks and deserts.

My son enjoyed cooking before we got this -- but this really makes him want to go out and try new recipes, sometimes because he likes the character, sometimes because it looks so delicious.

Great (but not Super) Cook Book.
by David Edward Lohman (4 out of 5 stars)
August 12, 2016

I think that this book is a great premise, and it does help inspire attempts at having fun while cooking. My son hasn't really expressed a strong interest in cooking any of the included recipes beyond making the Superman-shaped cheese. I think the more that it is referred to, the more interest that will be shown. It would be nice if the included cutouts would be more durable considering that they will be used with food (perhaps made out of plastic?).

Overall, we are happy with it.

Just not what I thought it would be..
by Kaylan Williams (2 out of 5 stars)
January 28, 2015

Not what I was expecting. I thought these would be actually recipes for really cool super hero meals. However, it turns out that it is pretty much just regular every day meals that they are just showing ways to make it look like a super hero sandwich, pizza, pancake, etc. I also thought it said that it came with cutouts which I thought were like shaped sandwich/cookie cutters but it is only stencils to use for decorating food. It is a cute book but just not what I thought and not what I was looking for.

Not really a cookbook
by Amazon Customer (3 out of 5 stars)
October 12, 2015

My 8 year old son, who LOVES superman, likes this book a lot. However, I think the recipes are not really home made ones? Its like food that is already made, but add a superhero emblem to it. Example, hamburgers and you add the superman "S" with ketchup. I guess if he's happy then I am happy.

Nice but not what I expected
by Lana L. (3 out of 5 stars)
May 26, 2017

Nice but not what I expected... It's not really a cookbook, it's more about decoration dishes. If you're a superheroe fan you'll like it but it's not very usefull. Another thing is the bookbinding. It's not very good cause it's made with spirals. I don't think that spiral binding was the better for this kind of book.

For a comic fan, I was so excited when I came across this. My daughter loves the Flash pancakes and the Batman french toast.
