The Silver Age skin line was set in a universe where every character is either a Superhero or a Super Villain. One interesting detail of this universe is that the Super-Villains are way more than the heroes in number.
While no one knows why this is so, we still appreciate the stories as they help portray our favorite champions in different lights.
Silver Age – Super-Villains
Brand started out as a loyal soldier who ended up in the hands of evil scientists.

Mundo is fine with taking any substance no matter how toxic.

Warwick is another character and result of Singed experiments.
Another of Singed’s vile henchmen, Warwick is never far from his villainous master. Given wolf powers after being bitten by a radioactive wolf, Warwick has been further augmented by Singed’s evil research! Will our brave heroes ever be able to stop him?!

The Silver Age skin line drew inspiration from the Silver Age of comics, an era with the clearly defined roles of heroism and villainy. Another similar but unique universe is the Fables skin line.
