Example text

They were all pretty weird kids. Anyway, I started getting really worried that all my business associates and, you know, other independent contractors who do our sort of work, would start to view me in an unfavorable light. I was nearly forty years old, being thrown down smokestacks nearly every other week by this kid who couldn’t have been a day over seventeen. It worried me for a while. After a few months, though, I developed a system; one where I could continue to occasionally lose to the young superheroes and still come out looking like I didn’t deserve to be on the Z-list.

Henchmen You can buy yourself a precious minute or two by throwing a handful—or if you have the resources, a battalion—of henchmen at your opponent(s). That minute could mean the difference between you being in a brig somewhere or waiting around in a Global Brotherhood of Minions regional post to grease some wheels and wait for new recruits. Decoys Mannequins? Those might fool someone with no superpowers what so ever for a second or two (and they’re pretty creepy, so that’s a bonus). Holograms?

Can attest to that. In my previous book, The Supervillain Handbook, which I assume you read, because you’re probably one of the thousands of poor souls I forced to read it at that old abandoned sawmill, I explained all the ins and outs of making a name for yourself in professional supervillainy. What you may not have realized when you finished that tome was that ending did not represent the end of the story; that is, your story of professional super-evil. Stories aren’t just beginnings . . they have middles and ends.
