Step aside superheroes and villains! It's time for the Henchmen to shine!!

Finally something different in Sci-Fi. Informed by the modern penchant for statistical analysis, marketing, data mining, gig economy, temp workers, and possibly influenced by the Amazon series "The Boys", Natalie Zina Walschots gives us, at last, the story of the villains and the hench folks that support their evil plans.  The superheroes are revealed to be not so heroic, the villains, not so blackhearted, and the support staff that make all tales of the 'supes' tick are revealed in all their glory.  The characters are interesting, surprising, and completely understandable.  Surrender all disbelief and go along for the wild ride. Finally, someone dares to ask: when the superheroes do all of that fighting, what happens to the cities razed, and the civilians caught in the crossfire?!
