He's tried to take over the world in every conceivable way: doomsday devices (nuclear, thermonuclear, nanotechnological), armies (robot, insect, dinosaur, fungus, fish), mass mind control, even a corporate conquest (Impossible Industries LLC). Each time, he has been foiled. This time, it's going to be different.Fatale, a gleaming technological marvel built by the NSA as the next generation of warfare, is living in Boston, watching TV and listening to the police scanner.

I don't think this audiobook reading is very good. The man who voices the villain isn't over the top enough to be convincing as a mad scientist type. Same with the woman who voices the cyborg, you'd think they would have coached her to sound more robotic.

If you like comic books, this book is for you. It's superhero comics from the villian's perspective. Intelligently written and a lot of fun.
