Storyline

Xander Crews is a billionaire playboy whose alter ego is the superhero Awesome X. He'd much rather goof around as a superhero than tend to the everyday aspects of running a corporation. The only problem is that Awesome X has gotten rid of every super-villain in the city, and now his board head Stan wants him to retire as a hero and get down to saving the company he's been running into the ground with his superhero expenses. Coincidentally, a new super-villain named Killface appears. His goal is to destroy humanity using the Annihilatrix, a machine which upon completion will hurl the earth into the sun. The only problem is that he has no way of getting the 12 billion dollars needed to complete his doomsday device. Luckily there happens to be a billionaire playboy in town... Written by robojif

evil villains as caring parents
1 December 2006 | by (davis, Ca) – See all my reviews

i absolutely love this show. you'd think after venture brothers and the tick a super hero send up would be old and tiresome by now, but the incredible humorists from sealab 2021 do a great job of exposing a new side to the comic motif.

most obvious is the way they use the corporate structure to mock super heroes. Xander crews is an incompetent CEO, Kill face is a struggling business man. I especially liked the part where killface lost his health insurance for his company.

my favorite though are the "tender" moments between killface and his son simon. its hard being a single father, harder still when you're trying to blow up the world.

this is fast becoming my favorite adult swim show, i think its even better than robot chicken and Aqua teen hunger force.
