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: 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.
