''Halt Evil Doer!'' is a third party M&M Superlink supplement for the MutantsAndMasterminds rules system. It was created by Charles Phipps, Michael Suttkus, and Mike Lafferty. The first edition was a PDF-only release but a Second Edition has since been released. The book describes the setting of Heroic Earth where superheroes are faced against hordes of extremely well-funded and politically-powerful supervillains. The setting contains numerous CaptainErsatz characters mixed-in with a large number of original {{NPC}}s.

The book describes a setting where superheroes are linked to mythology and public domain characters. The modern age has superheroes appearing during the [[TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] of the 1940s, a [[TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] during the 1980s, an [[TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks Iron Age]] during the 1990s, and now a [[TheModernAgeOfComicBooks Nickel Age]] for the 21st century. The setting is defined by a [[TheBronzeAgeOfComicBooks Bronze Age]] mentality with superheroes being genuinely heroic but overwhelmed by a large number of supervillains. The only reason the superheroes continue to prosper is primarily because the supervillains hate each other as much as they do the heroes.

''Halt Evil Doer!'' is now available for order from Paizo.com.

* GreatGazoo: Mister Hoppy.
* KillerRabbit: Mister Hoppy
* NinetiesAntiHero: Deconstructed with the Psychotic Seven [[InsistentTerminology (though they call themselves the Justicars)]]-by the time the game's "main" time period rolls around, they've been classified as a supervillain group after their thirst for justice at any price lead them to attempt an armed takeover of the US.

Dame Michelle Holmes of the Foundation for World Harmony (the SHIELD/Checkmate organisation) is a descendent of SherlockHolmes, whereas the Death Masks (and Black Wing II) are descended from James Moriarty.

* StableTimeLoop: In this setting, Dracula (who was turned into a vampire by Orkus the Entropic Master in the 14th century) was the first vampire, ever. All other vampires are descended from Dracula or people turned into vampires by Dracula. However, vampires have existed on Earth for thousands of years. How can both of these facts be true? Well, Dracula had this little accident with Death Mask III's time machine once, and...
* SpaceStation: Divinos has one.
* ThoseWackyNazis: Death's Head
* VampireMonarch: Dracula is the leader of the Vampire Nation. He's also the first vampire, even though there were vampires long before he died; it's a bit [[TimeyWimeyBall timey wimey]].
* WesternTerrorists: The House of Serpents is actually a fairly realistic version-they're a lot like a widespread, advanced, and well-funded right-wing militia.
