What do Villains do for fun when we’re not conquering the world?


…but after we’ve done THAT, we’re just like anybody else. We like to kick back, relax, and carve our names into the face of the Moon with death-rays the size of the Empire State Building.  But you don’t need a CONVENTION for that; that’s just an average Tuesday, right?

SO! For your Villainly enjoyment, we’ve assembled some of the most fun things in the world. We felt it was imperative, because:

  1. We want you to get great value for your hard-earned money, and
  2. Have YOU ever hung out with a bunch of bored Supervillains?  THAT’S WHAT SANK ATLANTIS.

We’ll binge classic Villainous movies – some funny, some scary, some dramatic, some strange, all of them incredible – in a real 16mm movie film fest!

Come to the Dark Side…we have Karaoke.

We’ve got workshops on some of the skills Villains need most—everything from how to make sure you profit from destroying the world, to outfitting your lair with deadly traps, to Secret Lovecraftian Lore. (It turns out that the main Lovecraftian secret is that Cthulhu is green because he’s made entirely of guacamole.  Who knew?

We’ve got panels wherein our assortment of Evil Masterminds (who are cleverly disguised as authors, writers, filmmakers, artists, and other creative individuals) will BATTLE TO THE DEATH. (Well, technically, they’ll just have extremely lively discussions, because it turns out the hotel HATES cleaning up after incinerations).
