About the Author

Adam Britten

Adam Britten could enter Mastermind on his knowledge of comic book heroes. He is not ashamed to tell people this. A teacher, he even uses superheroes in the classroom. He lives in Bradford and Captain Valiant and Me: Revenge of the Black Phantom is his first book. As a fan of Marvel Comics, he says he wanted to capture the excitement and fun of a good comic in a book, and as a teacher, he wanted to write a book which would encourage boys to read for pleasure.
