Plot and Cast of Super Crooks
Set in the world of “Millar Cinematic Universe,” Super Crooks is in a world filled with superheroes. It revolves around Johnny Bolt and the gang he recruited. Along with his mismatched group, Johnny is going for a final heist to rob a vicious crime lord with superhuman abilities.
Johnny not only aims to pay off the debt, but he also intends to be wealthy by the end. The heist will take place in Europe because of less population of superheroes.
Although there is not much information about the characters of anime, since it is based on comic books, we expect to see most of them in the series. In the comic books, the main characters are:
1. Johnny Bolt
The primary character who unites everyone (Just like Professor X from X-Men and Nick Fury from Avengers). He is a criminal mastermind with electric abilities, yet he primarily depends on his charisma and charm to manipulate others.
2. The Ghost
The Ghost is the world’s greatest cat robber, with the ability to turn intangible and pass through walls.
She is Johnny’s ex-girlfriend and the story’s sole significant female character. Her ability to manipulate others allows her to make them see what she wants them to see.
A fraudster in New York City who can manipulate the weather with his brain.
5. The Heat
An old supervillain with fire-manipulation abilities that he employs in tandem with a heat pistol.
6. Roddy and Sammy Diesel
Siblings and pro fighters who have regenerative healing factors. They clash but make a good team together.
7. TK McCabe
He knows telekinesis and also attempted and failed to become a legitimate superhero.
8. The Gladiator
He is a superhero who possesses superhuman strength. He only goes along with the theft because they threaten to expose him as a gay if he doesn’t.
