Imagining an alternate world in which Steampunk superheroes inhabit a Victorian society, the Union of Superlative Heroes are characters from a variety of countries, each with their own unique abilities. Book includes such epic figures as Marquis Le Bat, Stupendous Gent, Empress Amazonia, Arachno Kid, Prince Aqueous, Lord Wolverton and 18 more.

The Order of Nefarious Villains serves as the companion set and evil counterpart to the Union of Superlative Heroes. Spawned from the blackest recesses of spider pits and graveyard shadows, this collection of evil deviants inhabit the same parallel Steampunk Victorian universe as their heroic foes. Includes the characters Professor Cephalopod, Sir Samuel Lodestone, Black Piranha, Feline Fräulein, Lord Venomous, King Congo and 18 more.
