Book Description

What if the Punisher had God's blessings behind him - or thought he did?

Walter Dodge has superhuman abilities and decides to use those to strike the fear of God in the criminals around him, taking on the role of the vigilante superhero The Apostle. His assault on drug pushers leads him into an encounter with more law abiding heroes.

A short story (2,500 words) by the author of the semi-dark superhero novel, Questionable Heroes.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Punisher With Supernatural Powers 8 July 2012
By DarthJustice - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As someone who finds himself often a big fan of Punisher-esque characers and stories, I happened to stumble across The Apostle about a week ago. I was getting ready to leave on vacation with my family in a few days at the time and was stocking up on stuff to read on the trip so I figured why not.

Much like the Punisher, the Apostle is a criminal-killing vigilante who lives in a world inhabited by other superheroes. This isn't your superhero world where any regular person simply dons a costume and is a "superhero" but superheroes with actual superpowers. Unlike the Punisher, the Apostle is also someone endowed with superpowers that can be used to kill people though it's never really explained how exactly it kills the criminal (only that a cross is somehow burned into their clothes). What we have here is the Apostle is on a mission. The story follows the Apostle as he's targeting an illegal drug operation which sells drugs to children and is aiming for the top dealer.

It was a decent read and worth the 99 cents I paid for it. Two other superheroes make an appearance and I will say I kind of thought their bickering was a bit awkward. It came off almost like two children/siblings arguing. It wasn't too bad but that's what popped in my mind.

All in all, The Apostle is a nice quick read.

Walter Dodge is a crime fighting vigilante with an powerful cross that kills the criminals he tracks down. He calls himself The Apostle and feels he's doing the work of the lord. In this short tale, he focuses on a drug dealing kingpin. Along the way to tracking down his prey, he finds he has to overcome foes on both sides of the law, leading to an interesting conclusion in which he weighs a difficult decision. The story is a decent read -- not the best by Hammes, but good for those interested in the super hero genre.
