The Ultimate Villain

Lady Edna
The Ultimate Villain (part 1)
By Wolverine

Lady Edna hid outside the warehouse window and listened. The band of thieves called “The Tar” were inside, plotting. She needed to know their plan.

“Hey! When’s he getting here?” asked one member.

“He’ll be here!” said another.

“I can’t stop worrying that the cops will be around the corner.”

“He will be here any time now! Just stop worrying!”

“Why did we have to bring a barrel of tar along with us?”

“Tar is going to help us on our next crime.”

“How is tar going to help us?”

“Tar is very useful to us. He, or whatever it is, works for him.”

“So your saying tar works for him now,” said a thief that started to laugh.

“He thinks very highly of Tar boys, and you wouldn’t want him to be angry at you now. Would you?”

“No,” the rest of the robbers said at the same time.

“Good. Now we will have to organize our plan. Oh, here Tar comes now.”

“How can tar move on it’s own?”

“I get the impression you don’t like me,” said a figure coming out of the barrel.

“W-what I m-meant to s-say w-w-was.”

“You were going to say nothing!” the figure said.

The oily black being came out of the barrel. He had no human features. He was literally made of tar. Two red balls glowed where his eyes should be. The design on his chest lit up as a red skull.

“Which one of you doesn’t like me?” he said.

Everyone pointing at the one who spoke up. “Him!”

Tar aimed his arm guns at him and said “I will not kill you the most painful way because you did not know who I was. But, I will kill you!”

“NO!” he screamed kneeling on the floor, “Don’t kill me!”

Tar fired his guns. “To late.”

Everyone stood staring at Tar, wondering what he would do next.

“I’ve got word from Him to move out now! So if any of you slobs wish to stay behind, I pay you – in lead!” said Tar, firing his guns in the air.

“Let’s move out!” yelled one of the in-charge men.

“Wait! I give the order,” said Tar.


“Were being tracked. Follow me,” he said quietly.

Tar and the other walked out of the warehouse and looked around.

“You, you, and you, look over there. You, take your men and look there. The rest of you come with me,” said Tar sending the men everywhere around the building.

Lady Edna had no choice but to go inside the warehouse. Now she was trapped and hoped the robbers would leave. Tar was next to a widow and Lady Edna sneezed. Tar turned around, became a glob of tar, and launched through it. Lady Edna was engulfed in his mass.

You've got a real cliff-hanger here. Heroine in danger. Villains with the upper hand. And a strange villain at that.

Love the, "Too late" comment.

This is brilliant! I love the beginning with Lady Edna listening and how that ties up with the end. The villain is classic super-hero villain style which is great. And what an ending! I don't hold out much hope for Lady Edna.

It seems as if in all my stories, people like the villain much better.

(To be honest, I do too)

Tar is great and we've heard more about him than about Lady Edna but her name promises great things too.

Wolverine said...

Tar is great! And you'll see Lady Edna in action next edition
