    DC comics Super-Villains sheds some light into the dark world of super-villains. Everybody loves a hero and every fan has their favorite caped-crusader and costumed wonder. What do all of these heroes have in common? They all have a an arch emery, or several if you are really good. Where would our heroes be without the villains? I mean what is light without darkness to compare it to? DC Comics Super-Villains answers these questions and proves that sometimes it is good to be bad!

    Information for Cryptozoic:
    For every light, there is a shadow. And some shadows are darker than can be imagined. Those shadows are called Super-Villains.

    Celebrate some of the greatest evil-doers in DC Comics with Super-Villains Trading Cards. Base cards feature comic art by some of the top artists in the industry and copy written by comics veteran Adam Beechen. Collectors can look forward to six exciting chase sets, sketch cards inserted 1:24 packs, Totally Fabricated™ cards featuring "costumes" for some of the leading characters, and even more.

    Key features of the set include:
    • Featuring new and classic art, the base set features the greatest villains from the DC Universe
    • Base card and chase card copy written by comic book writer Adam Beechen
    • Hand-drawn sketch cards—in two card designs—from comic and sketch card artists, inserted 1:24 packs

    For as much as everyone has their favorite hero, they also have their favorite, or at least most memorable, villain. Cryptozoic DC Comics Super-Villains. For as much as a 'fan-boy' that I consider myself, I must admit that I did not recognize all of the forces of darkness in this set, even with many characters having appeared in TV series lately. I always love pulling a compete set in a single box! Although there are a lot of inserts included, the collation was perfect and I was able to complete all of the sub-sets. The silver and gold parallels will be a fun chase. The 1/1 sketch card is really sharp. The scan does not due the vibrant coloring justice. Printing plates are nothing new to the hobby, but I have never seen a 1/1 printing plate with this much detail! Cryptozoic DC Comics Super-Villains will appeal to set collectors, comic book fiends and fan-boys everywhere!

    OMG! Those are SWEET! I haven't even heard of these yet. :) Was there any doubles? I just recently got into comics (started the 2000 Harley Quinn and 1980 The New Teen Titans).

    Tim, if any of these are available (and Im guessing not :( ), I need the Quinn, Ivy, Catwoman Sirens, and anything else Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, , and any cheap stuff of deathstroke and The Joker you got. I have no idea on this set so lmk what you would need on them if you are willing to part with some. Im VERY interested in getting anything Harley Quinn/Poison Ivy, I may just have to get a box myself when I can afford it, LOL!

    Poison Ivy is probably my favorite card out of the set. Not in a perverted way though.

    Wow this is awesome. When it comes to DC or Marvel characters I have always been a DC fan. I feel that without the super villains the super heroes would be meaningless. By far my favorite super villain is 'Brainiac' which the picture for it is amazing.

    That's nice! I just feel that I need to collect DC, and Marvel collectible cards as well. Those you got there are really nice. I really hope I could get my hands on some like the crime syndicate set you have. I am gonna do my research on this and hopefully I could buy it online in my country cause of cheap shipping.
