      I was going to ask you which of the guys you meant, but then I realized your comment applies pretty much no matter who “he” is. šŸ˜›

    Huh? So there isn’t any professional courtesy given to the heroes? I thought that since both the heros and villains were part of a big agency that there was some sort of protocol for this sort of thing that resulted in the heros not dying, with villains that break that rule getting hunted down mercilessly.

    They really expect offcial villains to just kill heros? Like that psycho scientist? Kinda distrurbing.

    • sidekickgirl says:

      The Hero and Villain Agencies are two different entities that operate under their own rules. The bureaucracy is similar, but no, there is no policy governing who villains can and can’t kill. These are people who are breaking the law and often hurting people for personal gain.

      This is a very interesting thing to us, because it’s not the first time someone thought that either: the villains and heroes had deals with each other (or rules on how they had to fight,) or that villains wouldn’t do certain things to each other or to heroes out of some professional protocol.

      Why should it be totally fine if a villain’s world domination scheme involves murdering and enslaving millions of people, but if he kills another villain or a hero, suddenly THAT’S a problem?

      • Toma says:

        Well, I wouldn’t say it was “totally fine” but it’s a well known fact that any criminal that gets the cop-killer designation gets hunted down more ruthlessly then a civilian murder gets. Besides, a professional has STANDARDS. I was under the impression that there are levels of villainy that are not considered acceptable to this group. Such as mass murder. Also, most people don’t try to go out and murder others, even criminals. Hearing that not killing someone makes them more suspicious is a bit unnerving.

        I’ve never heard of a criminal enterprise that operated so out in the open before. They seem immune to typical police raids. Why can they have such a public face if there is no professional courtesy given to them?

  3. BrogueTheRogue says:

    The assumed connection probably stems from verbiage used in the comic. At several points throughout the comic, the hero and villain agencies are referred to in the same breath, and their rulesets are lumped together (red card, blue card, etc). This makes it seem like they operate under a single governing body.
