Meet Killface, the world's most evil villain whose mission of destroying mankind is derailed by the boring details of media buys, personnel staffing and marketing. And then there's Awesome X, the alter ego of billionaire Xander Crews, who is more concerned with the sales of his action figure line than foiling those plans and saving the world.
