Villainy and Blackguards Incorporated #24: Key Men

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.

The Key Men are a very special asset of VABI that we use with care.  Since the death of their creator, Baron Evil Von Bad (yes a horrible name that he kept despite best efforts of our personal department), the Key Men are a dwindling resource.  Already half of their numbers have been lost due to jail or death.  Also there is an age factor to consider, the youngest is in his forties. 

The Key Men were part of a special ritual.  The lost a small part of the soul and gained the remarkable power to open anything.  No lock can stop a key man.  Any door will open to them no matter if it is barred or even sealed.  The Baron first used the Key Men to do a wave of robberies across New York City.  Later he joined VABI the Key Men came with him and were used in many VABI operations.

VABI is clearly worried about the Key Men.  We are trying to recreate the Baron's ritual but so far with no success.  Anyone with mystical abilities are free to advise.  VABI will pay very handsomely.
