But their studies aren't confined to the classroom and definitely don't end at the bell.

In a world where monsters, spirits, and other supervillains threaten the universe constantly, our accidental team of students find out the hard way that even learning from the best supervillains of all time can’t prepare them for the real world—and that sometimes your enemies and allies aren’t what they seem.

Gladstone's School for World Conquerors - Book One: Super Villainy 101

Join Kid Nefarious, Marty the Martian, Mummy Girl, the Skull Twins, [ghost girl], and their friends as they take the test of a lifetime: Finding out that everything they’ve ever known about being a supervillain is a lie. When the kids’ way of life is shattered too soon and they discover a past that the world has done its best to cover up, they make a mistake that could corrupt the fragile balance of their lives—and destroy the world entirely.

Gladstone's School for World Conquerors - Book Two: In the Shadow of Shiran

After Red Storm Breaker’s demise, the crew realizes the enormity of what they’ve done—and face consequences of cosmic proportions. To right their wrongs and save the world from a celestial serpent that will eat the sun if it isn’t stopped, the team must piece together the incredibly powerful powerful Cosmic Armor – but they’ll have to search the universe to do it. Can they assemble their only weapon before time runs out?

Gladstone's School for World Conquerors - Book Three: Scorpio Kane

The mission to recover the Cosmic Armor takes the team to Mars and takes Martin to the ambrosia mines, where he finds his long-lost idol, the Cydonian – who happens to be a hero. When Martin learns that Scorpio Kane, the most wanted man on Mars, has been enslaving Martians to mine ambrosia that will amplify his powers immeasurably, the mission takes a turn that will teach the team that anyone can be a hero—even a villain.
