Daniel smiled. "You were a hero."
"So were you. So were a lot of people that night, especially Johnny. We can be proud of that."
-Drake and his 'Nobles'
-Another theme of this novel is sacrifice over selfishness, in other words, giving it all for the cause and not holding back to further yourself.

Review from GoodReads
Martha rated it 4/5 stars.
Villainous is the third title in the Powerless trilogy. This book pulls the reader right into the town of Noble's Green and the horrible destruction occurring through fires and vandalism. Townspeople think its the children who have attained super powers. Without reading the previous titles, readers can enter the world of both the Nobles and Supers, opposing forces of children, through the prologue explaining how the children became Supers. Focusing on Daniel, supposedly a non Super, readers learn about his Super friends and even get a glimpse of a blossoming romance. As Daniel puts the mysterious pieces of the towns destruction together, he realizes that he must figure out what is causing this havoc in order to save Noble's Green. Fully fleshed out characters, and lots of middle school angst make this story ring true. This is an action packed suspenseful book that readers who love action, super heroes, and a strong plot will devour.
