EVILOSITY
---
In all your bookly reading, /
I know you'll never see /
Another rogue with my amount /
Of Evilosity. /
---
Not Voldemort or Olaf, /
Not Wicked Witch of West. /
When it comes to Evilosity /
I, Vordak, am the best! /
---
That Grinch can be a mean one /
At least until Whos sing /
But I am awful all the time /
That's just my evil thing. /
---
Captain Hook is quite the villain /
Just go ask Peter Pan /
But I am far more evil /
And I still have my left hand. /
---
So put those other tomes aside /
My books are all you'll need /
To learn of Evilosity /
. . . Assuming you can read.

Unlike other textbooks, my books contain nothing but facts. Brilliant, invaluably villainous facts! And, also unlike other textbooks, mine has an extremely handsome author photo in the back.

Ah--I see you have decided to read the back cover of my bombastically brilliant book. Which leads me to the following question: Why in Zarfloog's name are you reading the BACK COVER? Have you no idea how a book even works? All the awesome stuff is on the INSIDE.

By the rotund rump of Ragnarok, I should be hearing screaming and crying and pleading for mercy! Something is amiss!

The vordak is a great book I suggest you read it so read it

Vordak the Incomprehensible #3 continues the hysterically funny saga of (attempted) world domination. This whole series will have you laughing until you fall off your chair (and when you do Vordak will make fun of you).

I love this series; it amuses me to no end. And one of the best things about it, in my opinion, is that each book is different enough that it hasn't felt at all formulaic or repetitive yet, so far staying fresh each time. The first one was a how-to manual and the second almost purely narrative, while this one is extra heavy on dialogue and character development, balanced nicely with plot and humor. While the thing I love the most about Vordak is the particular poetry of his boastful banter,* every element of each epic entices, engages, and entertains me.

In this tale, Vordak's file of formidable foes continues to grow, to the point that it might even include Vordak himself. Twice. Vordak decides to deflate rival archvillain the Blue Buzzard by defeating him in the Glorious Games at the Supervillain and Son Picnic. To accomplish this Vordak needs a son, so he creates a twelve-year-old clone of himself to play the part. Unfortunately, the younger Vordak fails to display Vordak's flair for evil. In fact, he seems overwhelmingly good; so much so, that he has Vordak doubting his own evilness--since the clone is identical to him, after all. All sorts of scheming, double-crossing, and destruction ensues. (*See the "Quotes" tab)
