The Elite Force of Britain: a group of superheroes who joined together to eradicate problems for everyday folk as and when they arise. Arch foes to groups of supervillains such as Supervillains United, they regularly thwart their despicable plans. Recently, however, the team returned from an as-yet-unknown mission which left the world pondering the possibility they had gone for good. Many celebrated the heroes’ return, but some, the supervillains in particular, were none too pleased, as this letter (found discarded in a skip) indicates.

Dear Superheroes,

Just as you made your ridiculous return into our world, to all the joy and celebrations of those who do not know any better, please let it be known that your disappearance has given us, Supervillains United, and the ever-expanding groups of supervillains in the greater world, the strength and direction to know that we can and will manage to overthrow and undermine and control and infiltrate and subvert and dissect and take over, bit by bit and piece by piece, every single strand and aspect and division of society that you seem to feel you stand to uphold and value.

Please be aware that we have the means to watch your every move, track your every motion, hear each and every heartbeat, and relish every bead of sweat that drip from your foreheads as you cower in fear and frustration at what your disappearance has called.

You will all, one by one, individually and then collectively, fall at our hands, beg for our mercy, and then, if we deem you worthy, will join our ranks. Those of you unworthy, of whom there are many, will be crushed and discarded.

We are the way forward. We are the controllers of destiny. We are united in our goal and you superheroes, even with your vast array of superpowers, gadgets and cunning, will find yourselves powerless and belittled in our mist.

And you will find your numbers diminishing once again. One by one you will vanish, disappear, or turn away. Your weakness is our strength, our food, and we are all hungry.

To start your decline, we already have one of your number. Captured as she was like a fly in a spider’s web, Parrot Girl was the first to fall foul to our advances. Simba Katiya was the victor in this battle. Parrot Girl didn’t stand a chance against the articulated lorry that she was thrown into the path of.

Keep your eyes peeled, ‘heroes’, for we know who our next target is. The world will soon be free. Well, free from your ‘protection’ as you seem to think. We can and will show the world the true meaning and cost of protection. This is our vow. You will join us or fall. We are united. Supervillains United. And we will not fail in our mission.

By Halloween it will all be over.

Kind Regards,

The Dropped Apostophe

    1. Indeed, Raili. They do seem to like the sound of their own voices somewhat!

    1. Hehehe. I don’t think these villains are in the least bit political, Prenin.

  4. How do they know Parrot Girl wasn’t a spy, sent to check them out and get information? There’s more to that story than meets the eye, me thinks, for a super-hero isn’t that easily caught out. They have a second sense and can see when they’re being played. You only have to look at James Bond. (not really a super-hero in the true sense, but as near as dammit is to swearing!).

    1. You are onto something there, Cobs. They seem an unorganised bunch, these superheroes, but they know what they are doing…

      1. Yeah … of course, I tried to work out which of the Superheroes you were . . . and ended up believe that you were all of them! LOL

        1. And the supervillains too… although I’d best keep quiet about that one… 😉

          1. LOL. Ah, I think we all have good and bad going on to some degree. My ‘bad’ just doesn’t make it to the page very often, like yours has.

            I did spend about five minutes wondering if each ‘person’ was based upon one of your followers – but I don’t know enough about your followers to know which one is which and who, so I crossed that idea off and marked it ‘F’ for fail. lol.

            1. Not a fail at all, Cobs… although none of these characters are based on anybody human. Simba Katiya gained existence after my brother’s cat went to the cattery in the sky, but all of the others are original creations.
