How are we to explain and understand the uniquely modern character that is the Super Villain? They represent a perception of right and wrong , a view of reality, and a modern psychological model unseen in any other literary character. Super Villains represent all that we fear and all that we wish we could be, rolled into a singularly unique character.
This book is a philosophical exploration of the Super villain's universe, psyche, ethics, their cautionary tale of humanity wounded, and the special qualities their world can endow its followers with.
