About the Series: Working Class Villain
Life isn't easy when lunatics in silly costumes are constantly blowing holes in the city. You lose a lot of friends that way. Also, it's terrible for the economy. That might be why Freddy Funke, hanging onto the bottom rung of society's greasy ladder, is so desperate for a job. Or it might be because he's lazy, unlucky, and once tried to impress his ex-girlfriend by stealing a blimp. Now, fresh out of prison, Freddy has been fired from every low wage job on the worst part of a bad town, he's single, he's hungry, and his best friend just got crushed by a building. Evicted from his apartment, Freddy turns to the one industry that's still thriving in the former City of Angels, putting on a mask and working for men who call themselves "super villains."

As Freddy bumbles through the seedy underbelly of a bombed-out Los Angeles, he rises from thug to henchman to a villain in his own right - dodging crooked cops and the city's resident superhero, The Man, along the way. It's the classic story of the American Dream, rife with explosions, domestic terrorism, and a man wielding a Fart Gun.
