Victor Spoil comes from a long line of famous supervillains and he's fully expected to join their ranks one day. But to his family's utter disappointment, Victor doesn't have a single bad-guy bone in his body. He won't run with scissors, he always finishes his peas, and he can't stand to be messy. Hopeless! As a last-ditch effort before they give up and let him be a--gasp!--civilian, Victor's exasperated parents send him to apprentice under a disgraced supervillain called The Stain. This matchup starts off as a complete disaster, but Victor and The Stain eventually find that they have a lot to learn from each other. The stakes get high when Victor is forced to choose between his mentor and his family morals (or lack thereof)...what will the world's nicest bad guy do? In this rollicking middle-grade adventure, Michael Fry's witty text and hysterical artwork combines superhero action with classic fish-out-of-water humor.
