VILLAINS UNITED #5-6 (2006): Series ends

Note: this series was originally presented at, and is reprinted here because all comic book material from that site has been moved here.


This is, quite simply, one of the best third acts in the history of third acts.

It’s not just a big Butch Cassidy shootout, it’s a series of rapid reveals, each cascading from the one before.

I can’t emphasize this enough: Villains United is the PERFECT miniseries.  It should be used as a blueprint for how to tell a comic book story with humor, character development, a perfect plot, appropriate pacing…When Gail Simone gets it right, she gets it RIGHT.
