As some of you will know, whenever Mark Millar launches a new Millarworld book, he raises funds for local causes by giving people the chance to name a character in the book via a charity auction
Kick-Ass , Nemesis , Superior and The Secret Service have, between them, raised over $30,000 from generous fans bidding and winning the right to name pivotal characters in books (and thus subsequent movie adaptations). Dave Lizewski in Kick-Ass, for instance, was named after the guy who won that auction.
Now Supercrooks is offering the same opportunity. The main bad guy of the piece, an retired, legendary super-villain, is called The Bastard. But his secret identity is entirely up for grabs this week and the bidding closes on Wednesday night.
