If you've been a Villain, and questioned the validity of superheroes, there is every chance you have been called a terrorist, murderer, bigot, nazi or worse. It's a pattern we've seen that these so called super heroes use when confronted by a genuine challenge to their fantasies. They dissemble, label, and run to the safety of their numbers. There are exceptions - a few Heroes who can express their beliefs, meet challenges with dignity and conviction, and be the heroes they claim they are. Very few, one might add. The vast unexceptional lot of heroes are little more than small people, with small minds, and smaller characters.
THIS is why superheroes will never prevail. The behavior is endemic to their kind, built into the very DNA of being a so called super hero. When in the future, they are questioned by a discerning public, their sham house of lies will crumble around them, and they will be seen for what they truly are: Frauds. It is inevitable, as we see in their continued failures. Where are the superheroes after all these many months? Precisely, and exactly no further than they ever have been, or will be. A motley collection of strange people with lack luster ambitions, and timid passions. A very, very, rare filler for a slow news day, nothing more.
If their intellectual cowardice were insufficient to guarantee their downfall, there is also their primary desire to be showered with attention. They truly care not as much about helping people as they desire to be worshipped for having done so. Of all the comicbook characters they model themselves after, which Superhero is the one who seeks as much attention for the work they do, as these so called real life super heroes do? They claim they are wearing costumes to attract other people to their cause. Yet, if such were the case, why the constant self posting? The media projects, the clawing for even the most degrading of television appearances. Which so called super hero does any act of goodness and not immediately turn around and post about it? There are none, except a very, very small minority, and these few voices are drowned out by the cacophany of the greater numbers.
Because of these two insurmountable failings, they are doomed animals, destined to be forgotten in immediacy, and laughing stock in future. One has set out to see to the elimination of so called real life super heroes, and see Villainy become viable in quality and numbers, and the achievement of these goals is at hand. One counts not less than 17 Villains out there working, near enough to a top end goal, and well above a bottom line threshold.
Every story has a narrative echo to stories told in times past, some stories told many times, and reinvented for new audiences. One's endeavors to this point has been one such story, and that story now draws to transition. It is a story that you have all heard at least three times before, once in ancient times, and twice again in the century past. But you won't realize it at this time.
This next part of the story is not ours to tell however, it is yours.
The Golden Age of Villainy is just over the next horizon, and it is yours to find, and shape, and make of it what you will. Be inspired, gifted, and ruthlessly merciless. Let no one stand before you and dare keep you from your desires. Be bold, you Villains, be wise, and passionate in your pursuits.
And you may Rise!

Each year, as Merciless Ruler of the Colorado Holdfast, One must attend to the discipline which is the Accounting. A travel from place to place within the Mighty State of Colorado (Number One Producer of Radon Gas!) and check into business interests. While gone in these pursuits, the Great Shadow of One's influence in the world of Evil is diminished, and this in turn allows other Villains an opportunity to rise in influence and be recognized for the work they do. The accounting begins each year at just before March, and runs through much of March. This year, there is census information to evaluate, and this makes the work both easier, and more detailed. The economy continues to impact much of the Evil in Colorado, and this requires further effort than otherwise.
One still has a few weeks left (and they are being eaten up with preperations) but in One's absence, Villains should also be preparing to seize the opportunity this time presents. Free of the Great Shadow of One's Megalomania, what can Evil accomplish? If you have been a Villain waiting to shine, to take control of your destiny and be recognized for all the work that you do - this is your moment! Rise up, and let this be inspiration to the best work of Evil you may have ever attempted.
(Still a few more weeks to go, and hoping the weather improves - though the inclement weather does help when wearing a helmet around in public...)

And so, the sport of superhero baiting began... Daily, driving by, shouting "Crouch!" and throwing pocket change. Spreading terrible, terrible gossip, and standing on the street corner pointing and cackling at him, sometimes for minutes at a time.
Soon, poor superhero was gone, the streets cleansed, and made pure and Evil once more.

Our esteemed collegue and SuperVillain, Russell Hantz, has possibly made a bold move to eliminate that bastion comfort of "the little people" - Survivor.
"Russell Hantz accused of leaking 'Survivor' info

Russell Hantz returns to "Survivor" for a third time on Feb. 16.

Once a villain, always a villain?
In October 2009, SurvivorSucks.com posted an accurate order-of-elimination list for "Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains" before the season even aired. Now, a Daily Beast story by Reality Blurred blogger and TODAYshow.com contributor Andy Dehnart has the news on who gave the spoilers to the website: It's allegedly Russell Hantz, the contestant everyone loves to hate.
"Survivor" executive producer Mark Burnett and CBS sued the man behind SurvivorSucks.com, Jim Early, in August for spoiling not only "Heroes vs. Villains," but season 19 ("Samoa") as well. But according to Dehnart's report, the lawsuit has been dropped because Early has pointed the finger at the "Samoa" and "Heroes vs. Villains" contestant as the informant. (And he reportedly has the e-mails from Hantz to prove it.)
Could this mean big trouble for Hantz, who is a contestant in the upcoming "Survivor: Redemption Island"? It looks like that may be. The Daily Beast story notes that cast members' contracts specifically state players can't talk to the press without CBS'permission or provide spoilers (obviously). And if a contestant does any of that, they're in big, expensive trouble. As in "liquidated damages" of $5 million, waaaaaay more than the winning prize of $1 million.
Besides saving his own behind, why would Early give up his source? He told The Daily Beast it's "because of (Hantz's) attitude about the whole thing, and because Russell tried to implicate another player -- an innocent player -- who wasn't giving information."
Guess the man known as "the troll" to fans of "Survivor" may be as nasty on-screen as he is off.
What do you think CBS should do with Russell Hantz if he is indeed the leaker?" *
What does One think CBS should do with Russell Hantz? Crouch down before him! Of course.
