The Elite Force of Britain: a group of superheroes who joined together to solve one town’s problems, and decided to stick together as they liked how things turned out. Recently, however, the team have been missing. Some on an important mission off-world, others involved in cases on their own. Due to the severe lack in superheroes, the balance of power has switched to another group. The despicable Supervillains United. The wider world at large have been up in arms, speculating just when their protectors for good over evil will return. And also due to the lack of superheroes, newer costumed crimefighters have been taking to the streets to clear them once and for all of the tyranny of the supervillain supergroup. AND where there are groups of supervillains, there are squabbles and arguments and fallings out… meaning some supervillains have also switched sides and joined the ranks of their missing superheroes.
A fact not unnoticed by the SVU themselves. Here follows the text from a flyer that had been glued to a lamppost:
I implore you to unite with those of us who have created the greatest team of Supervillains in existence; Supervillains United.
We can use our powers, our resources, our cunning and our skills to our greater benefit if we band together and work together. We can help each other. We can protect each other from our adversaries from the Elite Force of Britain and their associates. We can trap them, discover their secrets, their weaknesses… and we can combine our forces to bring about defeat after defeat to those who stand in our way.
You are either with us or not. And if not, you stand against us. You stand with the Superheroes, the very people who want to stop us from living the very lives that we dream of.
If you stand against us, like the Superheroes who stand in our way, you will pay for your chosen path. If you stand with us, you will be protected by the Villains’ Code. Our Code.
To join us, simply fill in the form overleaf and return it to the SVU Headquarters. We know who you are. We await your reply.
We have opted not to include the form, as some folk have been registering other people’s details to join this despicable organisation
As we said in the introduction, folk are getting tired of these supervillains running the show, and have been speculating upon the heroes’ return. Here’s the latest issue of the new Just So magazine (full of super-celebrity gossip):
And in case you can’t make out the headline, it reads “EXCLUSIVE! Elite Force of Britain: They’re Back! And this time, they have friends!”
But, is this headline true? Are our heroes back? And what are the SVU planning next? Find out in the next edition of The Superhero Diaries!
