Heroes Unlimited launched in 1984, introducing the world to Kevin Siembieda's peculiar form of statistics-based autism masquerading as a game system. The book represented a complex system of character creation tools and basic rules and little else, it wasn't until Villains Unlimited was released in 1992 that Siembieda and company bothered to create a roster of villains for the game. The villains contained in this volume are derivative, they are dorky and they are often unintentionally hilarious. In short, they are vintage Siembieda.
Steve: I gotta take a second before we start and ask are you alright dude? It's been like two years since we did one of these. What the heck happened?
Zack: I told you I was working on a project.
Steve: This had better be that game cave in your basement with the ultimate Warhammer table that breaks into four pieces and you use the modular buildings made out of resin and have the river panels that you can move around.
Steve: Are you sure you weren't the one telling me about the fallen titan you were going to make with armor panels you can lift off and fight inside? You wanted to do a board for the assault on the Imperial Palace on earth.
Zack: You're thinking of yourself.
Steve: No way. I don't have a basement.
Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.
Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
