    Uncle Fred, or to give him his full title: Fredrick Altamont Cornwallis Twistleton, fifth Earl of Ickenham, is considered by some as a "splendid gentleman, a sportsman to his fingertips". Mr Twistleton, nephew to Earl, and otherwise known as "Pongo" to his friends, has a differing view. He simply describes his uncle as "being loopy to the tonsils".

    Even D-list supervillains have to start somewhere. Follow Cal Stringel's misadventures as he climbs to the lowest levels of supervillany in the prequel to the smash hit, Confessions of a D-List Supervillain. Angry that he wouldn't be known as the engineer who made Ultraweapon's force blasters, Cal resigns to chase after a bigger, better paycheck. However, the Promethia Corporation isn't going to let him go that easily and sets out to make his life a living hell.

    What did you love best about Origins of a D-List Supervillain?

    I just love the authors writing style. I expect being very close in age allows me to catch most of his cultural references. Love his sense of humor.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hillbilly Bobby. It was nice to find out more about hi, so little was mentioned in "Confessions"


    Which scene was your favorite?

    General Devious talking to Cal or Maxine vs. ultra-weapon fight.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Ill leave that to Jim...


    Any additional comments?

    Great book, i hope he makes at least 5 in this series.

    Exploding from the pages of Horror, Humor, and Heroes, Volume One - it’s the full length adventures of the one and only Mechani-Cal! So grab your battlesuit and prepare to get a little nasty.
