Review of "The New Kid Is No Angel" by James Valvis

"The New Kid Is No Angel" by James Valvis was posted in Daily Science Fiction on October 17, 2012.  Two boys argue over the relative value of possessing various superpowers.  This very short piece has a twist ending that, I admit, got me.  The author hinted at a deeper meaning to his story in his notes but did not reveal it, nor could I see one, and for that reason I rate it at 6 rather than 7 out of 7 rocket-dragons.
