The good guy never wins. No matter if he saves everyone and really is handsome under those glasses (pun intended). Well in my opinion,everyone loves the super villian. My best bet is to go evil, I suppose, and be super cool.
As a villain, You will have more friends. Peter Parker was a social outcast. Norman Osborne was the popular kid. Reed Richards was a dorky scientist. Someone still fell in Love with The Fish person in Yomi/Yemi My lover, Von Doom was a rich socialite. Nneka the pretty serpent , was well,Pretty. Anyone else sensing a pattern here?
You get to laugh manically. Well yeah,
good guys don’t get to do this. No one has ever heard Superman or Batman laughing like a maniac and no one ever will. Trust me, this is something I want (everyone wants) to do. It is strangely liberating. While you may pass chances to do this every once in a while during your civilian life, you will never get the quantity of opportunities that come with a career in villainy 😀 .
You will have the budget for all kinds of toys,all off a sudden. Well the thing is the super bad guys are never broke. Not only are they never broke but they always have more resources than the hero could ever hope for. Apparently the villain racket pays very well. It also seems to be recession-proof. I hear the tax breaks are good too. ¯..(•͡.̮ •͡ )../¯
As for the bad guys, hot chicks dig evil guys.
You never see an evil villain with an ugly ass woman. Sure, they may be dirty, rotten, and out to steal your empire,(Evil-Lyn comes into my mind.) but you can always kill them if they get out of hand. Studies show that breasts of women who hang out with evil guys are an average of two cups bigger than the nice dudes chicks. Studies don’t ever lie,Ever. Or do they..? 😐
You will be safe from everyday accidents
Evil villains are never killed in car accidents. It just doesn’t happen. You won’t get smashed by a falling piano, a collapsed building, moving BRT/danfo bus or die of food poisoning. The only way you can be killed is probably and always in an explosion created by the hero by mistakenly exposing the one flaw in your plan that no one could ever possibly foresee. Even then…we know there’s always a come back… They simply do not have to worry about anyone killing them. Evil Villains simply can not be killed. People may think you are dead but you will secretly be lounging in an easy chair on your secret desert island hideout planning your next caper. The only way you can be taken out is by another villain ‘eviler’ than yourself who will subsequently take over your identity and continue upon your path in search of eternal world domination. Muahahahahaha.!
You can kill anyone you want and chances are high that You won’t go to jail. For some strange reason, cops never come to bust Evil villains at their homes even when the evidence is glaring. You could kill Spiderman on a live video feed in front of the entire planet and not one cop would try to arrest you. They can’t even arrest you for the stash of plutonium you have in your shed. It is in the charter when you join the union of the Super-villian Anonymous.
You get to dress how you want. You can even dress in the most outrageous outfits while demanding the world bow to your demands and no one will even make the slightest of snide comment. This could have something to do with the fact that you can kill anyone you want and can’t be killed back. 😀 (Remember, no one ever made fun of Magnetos helmet. Ok, Maybe they did..secretly though.!)
Don’t forget another fact, even if one of your plans are foiled, you always have two other plans on the back burner that succeed. Let’s call it the trinity theory.
Let’s not forget the minions. Become a super-villain, and you will quickly become surrounded by muscular (and sometimes not so muscular,but….) guys who will follow your every command despite being regularly pummelled by crimefighters and getting lousy pay. You can drop a minion into a tank filled with crocodiles because they displeased you somehow and the rest still won’t quit.
Now,let’s branch a little bit to the female villainy chronicle. There aren’t much of them female villians,but;
(a) There’s the young desirable maiden….the femme fatale,(a young beauty whose brain is perverted beyond redemption, whose body is totally hot, and who manipulates men’s emotions for material or maniacal motives eg Catherine Tramell in Basic Instinct and oh, Nneka in Nneka the pretty serpent).
(b) The ugly haggard crone, a bitter..old..twisted, barren sort of woman who has no love in her life (Nurse Ratched in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest); the mature respectable mother,
(c) and then there’s the woman scorned, she’s probably hot enough to feel outraged if a guy doesn’t want to keep swinging the light with her and obsessed enough to make him suffer for the rejection (Uma Thurman in My Super Ex-Girlfriend might not fit this villainy bill but that’s only because the film was a comedy. Now, if that film were written as a tragedy then….)
My favourite female villain has to be Cruella De-ville. iLike her sweggs.!
There’s also T-X from Terminator 3, the Borg Queen from Star Trek, and the queen alien from Aliens, although errrmm….that’s kinda like beginning to stretch the definition of female.
Btw S/O to Lunaleo and Sand-storming Johnsee. Inspiriation behind this post.! 😀
