The travails and triumphs of robbing banksters, not banks … She’s Topaz, a Tex-Mex U.S. Marines vet with a sun-hot mad-on, he’s the Bandit, a world-class super-thief whose re-awakened anarchy is icy cold, and they know exactly what they’re doing. They do it well. But when your supervillainy works like gangbusters, what do you do then?

Lebanese-American, polysci professor, well-adjusted and well-informed – finally, a vigilante who makes sense. Until you realize that to fight terrorism, you must defy the War on Terror. Saif Alllah brings a whole new level of “disturbing” to street-level justice, finding the height of moral action in becoming Public Enemy Number One.

Snake cult priest, death row survivor (in more ways that one), commune leader, prison abolition activist, and walking WMD – no one trips the social triggers like the Ophite and his bevy of serpentine supervillainness sidekicks. Don’t envy him too much: defying the entire political establishment and every moral convention is one thing, but managing the dangers of one’s own organization is another.
