Under normal circumstances, most comics are happy to introduce a single supervillain at a time, establishing a clear and distinct threat to the hero before the villain is ultimately defeated and goes away for a while to plot their revenge, maybe showing up as part of a villainous team-up somewhere down the line. If, however, you've been reading Mark Waid and Dean Haspiel's The Fox, then you already know that it's not really a book that does things the normal way.

Case in point, this week's issue, where the Fox and She-Fox are confronted with not one, not two, but five new villains --- six if you count their sinister boss, Mr. Smile --- in an all-out brawl to save his son. Check out a preview below, featuring more supervillainy than you can shake a floppy ear at!
