"They have no compunction about doing terrible things, so they've been doing those terrible things across the country for a few months now, recording all their terrible deeds and putting them on the internet. They seem like a bunch of joy-riding kids - the sort of soulless, 'Call of Duty'-playing, Columbine-shooting disaffected youths that all parents fear.
" ~ Sean McKeever, creator of Bastards of Evil.
The alleged discarded and disavowed sons and daughters of supervillains, the Bastards of Evil formed not to rob banks or take over the world, but purely to cause death and destruction. They see themselves as the next generation, the future, of evil. Aftershock

to reveal himself.
During the altercation among the Bastards internally, Aftershock attacked Singularity. In the process, his memory was cleared and he remembered the true nature of his power. He was actually a teenager from Nevada names Devin Touhy, and had been kidnapped by the Superior, along with all the other members of the Bastards. Enraged, he turned on his supposed leader. He was killed for his insolence, but the distraction gave the Young Allies the upper hand they needed to defeat the Superior and the members of the Bastards who remained loyal to them.
