I'm a Super Villain & Giveaway of an ARC of The Rose Society

I was invited by Penguin to turn myself into a villain to promote Marie Lu's The Young Elites and The Rose Society. This post was so much fun to make, I hope you guys enjoy it. Also, be sure to check out the giveaway at the bottom of this post =P

My Villain Identity: I am Supernova.

I used to make this badge. See the full size image here

My superpowers: I have powers that control gravitational pull—I can pull anything (and I mean anything) to me or push it away from me. I can slip through time and space into different dimensions. I am able to use energy to vaporize anyone and everything in my path. Also, if anyone is successful at killing me, I turn into a black holesucking everything around me into nothingness. So, better find another way to deal with me . . . good luck.

(Side note: I did take astronomy in college so I'm aware of how a supernova works. The idea here is that I am a supernatural villain and I wanted to include some realism behind my fantastical powers. Also, astronomy is cool)

My fictional Villain Squad

Adelina Amouteru

Maybe this seems kind of obvious but I need one of the most complex characters on my team. Her skills with illusions will be very useful for my takeover.

Aleksander a.k.a. The Darkling

One of the most beloved villain in the YA universe needs to be on my team. Powerful, cunning, and he's sexy. 

Bellatrix Lestrange

She is one of the scariest villains of my childhood, and any woman that can still give me chills belongs in this squad.


I was never quite sure if Magneto was fully a villain but that doesn't change that fact that I want him on my side. 


How can I build a squad without Sauron and his army of Orcs? This guy didn't even have a body and still managed to cause a world of destruction.

To add to my villain squad, I'm calling out to:
