As the source material for the anime is not Manga but an actual comic book series. There are significant differences in how the comic flows versus how the anime has been made.
There are a few facts concerning the anime’s real sequence. However, the protagonist of the comics is Johnny Lightning, a super-villain who ends up in jail for five years. After serving his time in jail, he returns plotting a massive robbery after meeting other former super-villains in need of money who are also organizing a heist.
The protagonist in the anime is named Johnny Bolt. It’s unknown whether the character’s final name change is the only alteration made in the adaption of his origin story. CBR’s report on the Netflix release confirms that the anime adaptation will act as a prequel to the events of the comics and then overlap with some of the events in it. However, the plot continues the same way as planning for a grand heist in Spain.
