Villains Can’t Hide from the Pinnacle Spotlight Forever!

Villains Supplement to the Super Powers Companion (Second Edition)Villains hide. It’s what they do. It’s certainly what the Super Villain Update managed to do. But that time of stealth is at an end!

When we’d released the Super Powers Companion (Second Edition), we also released that free update to bring the villains and creatures from the original Super Powers Companion up-to-date. It just looks like we might never have told anyone. Oops. But now you know.

And if you want to see even more villainy in action, be sure to keep up with the second season of Wendigo Tales. The whole season is focused on the world of Necessary Evil, where the super villains of earth have to fight an occupying alien force and their own baser natures to save the planet! Catch Faces of Destruction (the first one—of the season—is free), Thicker Than WaterFallenPurgatory, Maps to the Stars, or Tablets of Destiny. You can also look forward to the newest installment coming next week, Steve Long’s The Third War!
