When Matthew Cody started writing Powerless his family started dealing with serious illness. He said that he wanted people to know that they were not the only ones going through hard times he expressed this through his books characters. He decide instead of writing through grief he would write through action and humor.
Matthew Cody always has hidden themes inside his books here are some of them.
Powerless had a few themes but the one that stuck out to me the most is you do not need superpowers to be super. This means that you do not need superpowers to do incredible things. All of his books have one thing in common make kids want to read and think of it as fun not a chore.
