Ethan Shade was one of the most inept, third string supervillains on Earth. But now he may be the last supervillain on Earth. During a month long war, the world's superheroes banded together and wiped out the villains with the exception of Shade, who quickly went into hiding, fearing for his life. But he soon realized that no one was looking for him. No one was hunting him. No one seemed to know he even existed, and Shade was more than happy to let that continue. He planned to take down one last bank, pick up a major score, and then leave the country. But the robbery doesn't quite go as planned, and at the end, Shade had accidentally murdered a popular local superhero, and goes on the run, the target of the world's largest manhunt. Under the direction of the holographic version of his old mentor, the diabolical supervillain Doctor Winter, Shade tries to escape from the long arm of justice, but seeing as he's pretty terrible at being a villain, things don't go according to plan. As he races for his life, and accidentally compounds his crimes over and over again, Shade realizes that he's at the centre of a web of deception orchestrated by the world's smartest evil genius, and must try to turn things around for himself before it's too late.
