Confessions of a D-List Supervillain - Jim Bernheimer

A supervillain inventor who has worked his way up from being lamer than Paste Pot Pet into a powered armour force to be reckoned with is the only one capable of saving the world after this universes version of that jerk Tony Stark scres up. The evil Overlord's brain-enslaving bugs get out when Ultraweapon attacks his fortress and take over everyone, including the Olympians - the world's premier superteam.

When they storm Mechani-Cal's fortress he runs and manages to hold them off and snatch one of their number. Deprogramming her with the good old prison and play the same song forever trick he enlists her psionic help to continue the process making friends into the bargain.

That's only the first part of the story though. Very entertaining villain turned hero sort of tale.
