Even Super Villains need advice. Everyone’s the hero of their own story, the Super Villain’s POV…
Mark Waid and Barry Kitson’s Empire is a comic book mini-series about Golgoth, an armoured super villain who has taken over the world and the palace intrigue and schemes going on in his subordinates.

- Empire (vol 1) #1 – 2 (2000) Image/Gorilla – Reprinted in Empire #0 at DC.
- Empire (vol 2) #1 – 6 (2003 – 2004) DC.
Mostly from the POV of Lohkyn the newly appointed Mini
ster of Espionage in Golgoth’s ministry so the reade
r is introduced to what’s going on with him and has access to the information his position entails.
All of the characters are villains, Golgoth is the super villain overlord the rest his henchmen and minions, but rather than “good” and evil all have their own needs and goals which make them do what they do… some for what they see as the greater good.
