There's also a new series out about the super hero villians.  I think Loki
is the first one.

"I really didn't realize the librarians were, you know, such a dangerous
group. They are subversive. You think they're just sitting there at the
desk, all quiet and everything. They're like plotting the revolution, man.
I wouldn't mess with them."

Michael Moore
