The supervillain’s plans were in shambles. In every way possible, they had beaten him.
So why was he laughing?
“You may have have won the battle, but I won the war,” the supervillain declared right before he vanished into the ground.
They shook the words off as the empty boast of a defeated supervillain while they help to clean up some loose ends. It was only after they returned to their base that they discovered the supervillain’s true plan.
In their absence, their base had been broken into and left in shambles. A white note stood out on the single undamaged table.
Have fun cleaning up.
