Ever wondered where supervillains come from? Gladstone's School for World Conquerors has the answer. Founded by a failure of a villain and made successful by one of the most famous supervillains of all time, Gladstone's has the art of villainy down to a science. Students learn everything they need to know to become a hero's worst nightmare, but even lessons on running a criminal organization, extortion, and treachery from the best can't prepare them for the danger that awaits them outside the classroom. Sun-eating celestial serpents, legendary supervillains, demons—there's no telling what danger students will run in to next!

But that’s not the only thing students learn in the real world. Supervillains—and their superhero counterparts—hold a secret that could turn the worlds of aspiring supervillains upside down and change the way the world sees good and evil forever. There are delicate machinations at work that budding supervillains know nothing about, and the generations that have come before them will do whatever it takes to keep the students at Gladstone’s from learning the truth. But when secrets begin to unravel, events bigger than any conspiracy are set in motion—events that could spell the end of the universe.

Between learning the ropes of being a supervillain and fighting the forces that threaten the universe, Kid Nefarious, Martian Jones, Ghost Girl, Mummy Girl, and the Skull Twins are getting a world education in how to be evil—and learning firsthand that not everything is as it seems.

Full of intrigue, twisting plot, and heroism in unexpected places, Gladstone’s is sure to keep you guessing what will happen next—and to keep you wondering just how blurred the line between hero and villain really is.
