This index is devoted to one of the most unique series DC ever produced: a title devoted purely to Super-Villains, comicdom's criminal element. Unlike traditional stories that featured a hero or heroines efforts to overcome injustce and thwart crime., The Secret Society of Super-Villains focused on the activities of an organized group of super-criminals and their attempts to obtain their extralegal objectives. This series offered a novel insight into how super-villains operated and offered novel characterizations of sometimes relatively minor criminals. The format of this index is shamelessly patterned after the ICG indexes of the late 1980's, a recommended source of information for all collectors. Each issue of the series will be featured along with the DC Special devoted to the Secret Society and their final appearance in the Justice League of America. (Note: This Index is devoted to the original SSOSV. The latter version organized by the Ultra-Humanite had no connection with the original and had only a single storyline in which it was featured. This story is not covered by this index.)
