about

For eons, King Oblivion, Ph.D., was one of the most ruthless supervillains the world has ever known. As the CEO of the ISS (International Society of Supervillains) for half a century, he was personally responsible for numerous nefarious acts, including Nixon’s presidential election, stealing the country of Japan, Star Wars: Episode I–III, and Milli Vanilli, just to name a few.

Since his untimely (and inexplicable) passing, Matt D. Wilson, who was found rotting in one of Oblivion’s numerous dungeons, has discovered in his giant lair (located in the Earth’s mantle) what seems to be the early workings of the villain’s ultimate manifesto. Though in-depth research (and paper cuts), Wilson reviewed endless documents and has compiled numerous unedited chapters, email correspondences, and various threats which combine tell the “life story” of this anti-hero.

Supreme Villainy is an intimate look into the mastermind who once ruled the globe with an iron fist (and ray gun). For the first time ever, readers will learn of his birth (which has never been noted on record), rise to power, and domination of the world as we know it today. Revealed inside are never-before-seen notes, interviews, and personal letters which, now collected, show a glimpse into the once-infamous villain’s uncompleted manuscript, and maybe a hint into who the real man was behind that horrible mask.
King Oblivion, Ph.D., earned a doctorate in the Nefarious Sciences from Ocean Trench Fortress University. Until his untimely passing, he was the CEO of the International Society of Supervillains, ruling from his giant lair in the Earth’s mantle. Matt D. Wilson is a former reporter and has also been writing humor for over a decade ...

Editorial Reviews

"Supreme Villainy is the best supervillain memoir since The Art of the Deal."—Mike Lawrence, comedian and writer "While we have all lived for decades in fear of King Oblivion's sinister machinations, Wilson's thorough biography is a witty, irreverent, and genuinely hilarious take on the mind of history's greatest monster." —Chris Sims, writer of X-Men '92 and Deadpool: Bad Blood "They say that history is written by the winners, and that's certainly the case for the supervillain known as 'King Oblivion Ph.D,' whose reign over the world lasted for decades and saw him responsible for some of the most heinous acts in history. Truly, his history is terrifying and dastardly one."—Steve Morris, CBR.com "Oblivion and Wilson's genre-defying meta-memoir had me cowering with laughter. Buy it, as your King commands."—Daniel Kibblesmith, writer, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert "Legendary supervillain King Oblivion, Ph.D., recounts his century-long life of evil and mayhem. Wilson pieces together the contradictions, lies, and self-aggrandizing braggadocio to paint a picture of a villain who never fails except on purpose, and whose setbacks are all according to plan. . . . [King Oblivion is] an unreliable, unsympathetic narrator who will undoubtedly incinerate this reviewer in due time." —Publishers Weekly "Thanks to this exhaustively researched book, I finally know the 'inside scoop' on King Oblivion, the man who burned down my village and disintegrated my family!" —Geoffrey Golden & Amanda Meadows, The Devastator "On one level, it's a funny, clever satire of the pop culture villains of a classic mold, done with a surprisingly light touch given the number of people consumed by sharks. On another level, it's pretty much a guidebook for our modern cultural scene, and doubtless will be taken as non-fiction once our real-life megalomaniacs catch up to King Oblivion. Get the well-earned laughs out of Supreme Villainy now, because it will soon be taught in schools."—Ross Johnson, B&N.com Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog
