Villainy and Blackguards Incorporated #11: The Collector

Villains and Blackguards Incorporated (VABI) is an organization found on Earth 32aa which has dedicated itself to protecting the interest of those of differently enabled morality and enhanced humanity. They take care of legal expenses and investments. It has become a very successful organization and is considering spreading to other Earths. In case they do here are some of it's members.

VABI understands that collateral damage is a sad fact in the careers of many of its members.  Sometimes the innocents suffer.  Some of VABIs members are not very careful about their choices of targets.  VABI's position is that such decisions are on their heads.  Still there are some people that VABI has chosen not to associate with.  Even villainy has certain limits.

The Collector asked for VABI's service and after a review that went all the way to the Hidden Circle he was refused.  The ennormity of his crimes was shocking.  When the police finally caught up to the Collector they found seventy eight children's skulls in his basement.  A horrible record of serial killing that was made possible because since birth the Collector has been able to fit his physical form through any space.  As you can guess that made keeping him in custody a problem.  It was when he was running from the police that he contacted VABI and was refused.  VABI even gave information to the Authorities in a rare exchange.

Eventually they did catch the Collector.  They even managed to put him in a hermetically sealed cell.  He was sentence to death multiple times.  The trouble is that none of the legally sanctioned forms of death seem to have an effect on him.  He awaits his punishment and occassionally escapes.  But that is not VABI's responsiblity.
