Meet the Gecko by Wendelin Van Draanen

"He's got nine hundred twent-seven messages!" she whispered into the phone. "Steven, this is totally out of control!" Her eyes were enormous. ...
That night they talked about Shredderman on CNN, ABC, CBS, and Fox News. And in the morning we ate breakfast and listened while a group of morning-show anchors talked about it over coffee. (154-157)

Nolan Byrd has a chance to meet Chase Morton, the actor who plays his favorite television show superhero. But Nolan's own superhero alter ego ends up being pulled into an investigation of a tabloid reporter known as the Mole. The Mole makes up news stories about celeberties and pulls tricks to get fake stories. Well, Shredderman is going to put a stop to this, once and for all! But when the news goes national, is Nolan's cover blown? And Nolan gets his own suprise when Bubba shows up on the television set in Meet the Gecko by Wendelin Van Draanen.
