This is the kind of thing I love to see in a superhero (or supervillain) 
comic:  a world actually changed by the superhumans.  I would have 
thought a publisher dedicated to fictional universes would have loved it 
too.  Oh well, the world's loss.  Unless we share it from RACC.

I will say, the characters look kind of like they got tossed together in 
a role-playing campaign.  Publishers may prefer their master 
supervillains without catchy one-word code names.  Even Victor von Doom 
has *two* words in his codename.  I can totally see Conflicto picking a 
short zippy name like "Conflicto", but I'm unclear on why the others put 
up with him.  He seems more like a minion than a master.

Still, the story certainly had action and a proper level of silliness. 
Well done.
