This book provides 13 villains unified by the theme by having gained their abilities from supernatural or magical means (or, in some cases, are simply supernatural beings) ranging from simple lone villains to a godlike being that could destroy the world. In addition, there are statistics for various assistants and mooks (including zombie Avon ladies) that might be needed.

For me, most of these characters just do not fit in my mental comic book universe, they are too dark or too warped. I did like the more traditional comic book type characters like: Captain Skumbag, super thug for hire. Reverend Strange, a Victorian Satanist back from hell and seeking vengeance on those who defeated him, or their descendants. And the classically campy vampire, Contessa Von Blut.

One of the strengths of this collection is that each character comes with three, fairly extensive, scenario outlines which often tie in with other characters in the collection. This makes it easy to build an occult conspiracy subplot into a campaign.

A good collection if your M&M campaign runs to the dark and macabre, not so useful if you prefer your superheroes in four colors.
