Supercrooks     13 episodes    Nov. 25    Netflix
EN-GB_SuperCrooks_S1_Main_Vertical_RGB_P

The animated Supercrooks is based off of a 4 issue comic book published in 2012 that was a spinoff of the Jupiter's Legacy comic book created by Mark Millar and artist Leinil Yu. The comic book provides roughly 3 and a half episodes of material for the 13 half-hour episodes of the animated series.  The rest of the episodes provide some prequel material that shows the heroes and villains before the comic's grand heist commences as well as fills in and updates the general storyline.

 

One last heist. That's what they all say, right? Just one final score, and everyone can retire and take up fishing. Thing is, the jails are filled with super villains who thought the same thing, and got busted. But the Heat's in a jam. He's run up the kind of gambling debt that - if he can't pay it back in cash - will be paid in blood. Nobody wants to see the most beloved supercrook of all time rubbed out by the mob - especially his biggest fan, Johnny Bolt. And Johnny's got a plan to help the Heat and make his eight buddies disgustingly rich at the same time. Their target? The riches contained within the compound of the most successful villain of them all, who has retired to a life of luxury in Spain. To pull off the job, they'll have to avoid the big boss, the authorities, and their old super heroic nemeses, Praetorian who has 200 different powers.
