A Villain's struggle. A story that depicts the hardships of an immortal and all powerful being, his interaction with humanity throughout history, and the turning point he came to that made him understand the human condition.
Super beings began appearing and Maximilian Johns thought that he was finally with peers. When the fist Enabled Human appeared to the world in 1972, humanity reacted in a predictable manner, they were scared and decided to capture the Enabled.
Years after the world's introduction to the Enableds (People with powers), more of them started appearing with a range of different abilities and soon after, the Superhero phenomena began.
Maximilian thought that humanity has finally changed their attitudes towards those with powers, however Superheroes were highly scrutinised by the public and blamed for many of the super villainous acts, just as the police would be blamed for not stopping criminals.
Out of anger on the unchanging human attitude, and the desire to make his late wife's wish a reality, Maximilian decided to become a Villain to wreak havoc on the humans as well as show them that they need Superheroes.
