Super Crooks: The Most Logical Idea Involving Super Powers In The History Of Comics


Mark Millar & Leinil Yu are two of the biggest names in the comic book industry. Like em or hate em, these guys can do pretty much whatever they want. So why not team up and try to come up with a great idea for a comic? Well, they did... and it may be the most logical idea I have ever heard for a story that is based on superheroes and super villains. In all the craziness and bizarre ideas that pollute most comics, how come nobody ever thought so simple? Click after the jump for a full explanation of the comic (which is out this week) and a cool promo video from director Nacho Vigalando (if you haven't seen Time Crimes, you better fix that ASAP) who will actually be directing a film version of the series due out some time next year. This one is gonna be epic...



Millar always wondered why these dumb ass super criminals constantly try to pull off crimes and capers in cities like Metropolis & Gotham City where they can be thwarted by the likes of Superman & Batman. Why not try to steal something of value somewhere devoid of a superhero champion... like say, Spain perhaps????

"A gang of super-villains decide to go and pull the biggest heist of their career in Spain because, let’s face it, there’s no Captain Spain. Stylistically, it’s like a Guy Ritchie movie or ‘Thunderbolt and Lightfoot,’ a gang of very likeable, blue collar thieves who just hit on a good idea and try to make some dough after years of getting busted by the superheroes. It’s basically the X-Men meets Ocean’s 11 and I think that’s what excited Platt’s office because it’s a great chance for a big ensemble cast and I always like these fish out of water stories. American super-villains trying to pull a job in Spain just kind of writes itself." ----- Mark Millar
