Help me out here.... A former diabolical mastermind who once had an evil fortress, cunning army of red shirts at his command, and doom weapons at his disposal is now working a government job after serving time in jail. He/She is helping them research something, something suspiciously eeeeeeeeeeevil. or not. What does he/she look like? Why is he/she working for the government? Is he/she good or evil? Any future plans for global conquest? Superpowers or special abilities? I appologize for being intentionally vague on some questions. Try not to read too deeply into what I am asking. How long was this person in jail? Roughly five years, assuming. What did this person get caught doing that put this person there? He was trying to take over the world and got arrested by a team of superheroes. What happened to the fortress? I'm open to a suggestion. I've avoided thinking too deeply into it. If it was an evil fortress, how could this person be good? Either he reformed for some reason, or the government paid him a hefty salary. Perhaps eeeeeevil just doesn't pay Why would the government hire this person with such a shady past? My first idea was that he was helping the government find a solution to a doomsday weapon (orbital wave motion gun / orbital partical annihilation laser?) that he invented in the first place. That creates all kinds of questions, so I'm turning to others for some random inspiration.
