The original story of Supercrooks follows an assault carried out by a group of super-villains, recruited by the newly freed Johnny Bolt.
The team’s latest crime takes place in Spain, as the United States is saturated with a constant presence of heroes and villains.
The characters aim to assault another super-villain, known as The Bastard, who keeps his entire criminal fortune in a vault in the basement of his home.
