Th an ugly score to settle They're the most dangerous supervillains on Earth and they're about to pull off the perfect crime There's just one catch if they succeed they might accidentally save the world From the skyscrapers I just don t care any I don t particularly like any of the characters The heroes are all petty entitled shallow snots The villains are likeable but even then they have their own goals and have no problem manipulating the rest to accomplish them The author has a very strong 1% v 99% theme going where being rich and powerful automatically makes you bad and only the poor are deserving of anything I kept waiting for someone to scream occupy Wall street Eventually I just wore out
