Brain On The Run

I’ve gone underground.

You know, I thought that was going to sound cooler. Whenever you see a spy movie and the main character says ‘I’m going underground’, it comes across as cool and hard.

It’s much less so when it’s happening to you. Also when it’s literal. Going underground is probably a lot more fun when you aren’t actually in a subterranean shelter trying to avoid being destroyed by heroes and villains alike.

Not that I don’t deserve it.

I apologize that this missive is in text form. I accidentally left my recording equipment in BRAINFEVER BASE 01 when I evacuated. I assume it’s now in pieces or has been confiscated by Señor Supreme and Nocturnal Knight. I hope the former. If the latter, we may end up being subject to yet another season of Super Hero Corner.

That’s a level of torture even the Tingler Family would hesitate to use.

I wanted you to all know that I survived. As if there was any doubt. I’m a supervillain, after all. I’m THE supervillain. Or I was, anyway, for a few precious months there. And if there’s one thing supervillains are experts at, it’s contingency plans for their inevitable defeat.

Not that I’m defeated! Not at all. This is just a setback…and one that I brought upon myself.

Some of you might think I acted in a moment of passion when I let all the heroes loose. You might have a point.

It had been a somewhat boring time at the top. That put me in a mental state that I’m not proud of. And I was going through a messy break-up at the end there. Messier for Time Raveller than me, of course.

There were pieces of him everywhere.

Don’t worry on that score, though! I’m sure I’ll be able to pluck him from the time stream before he’s completely disintegrated.

Assuming I ever get into a fully functioning lab again. BRAINFEVER BASE X is fine for letting me rest without running from Señor Supreme’s better-vision or Major Clockwork’s temporal scans. It’s kind of lacking on actual scientific equipment, though.

Plus the pull-out couch is lumpy.

Still, this is not the end for Professor Brainfever. Not by a long shot.

And besides, I prefer things this way. Sometimes you have to erase the whole chalkboard and start again before you find the real answer to your problems. And that’s what I did.

Now I simply need to start filling the board up again. That shouldn’t be a problem at all!


I really wish my moon base hadn’t been destroyed, though. All my favorite clones were up there…
