Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

Heroes, villains (all though which is which is not always clear), arch nemeses, a corrupt institution, and Nimona. Nimona, a shapeshifter, gets herself a job with Ballister Blackheart, “the biggest name in supervillany” and may be a tad over enthusiastic to help him bring down the hero, Ambrosius Goldenloin and the Institution. It soon becomes clear though that Ballister’s and Ambrosius’s relationship is more complicated than simply hero and villain (why else are they both still alive?), and Nimona’s powers may be greater than anyone bargained for. A fun read with snark and heart and very human complications.
