With all the favorite threads, I thought we needed one that addressed one of the most important aspects of all time: Evil.  So come on, boys and girls.  Who do you love to hate?

I liked Magneto.  Sure, his methods were questionable, but at least you could understand where he was coming from.  He had seen the dark underbelly of humanity and knew it was only a matter of time before fear twisted the righteous again.  Better do unto others before they do unto you.

John Marcone from the Dresden Files.

Now, my list of favorite villains essentially is longer than my list of heroes. I adore villains and often find they drive the story much more than the hero, who'd get dull in a second if not for the villains opposing him or her. The Three Musketeers is one of my favorites in that regard: Cardinal Richelieu, Rochefort and Milady in ONE package! What more is there to long for?

Still, when it comes to a single villain it has to be Marcone. Because he's ruthless, all business with a soul as efficient as an accountant's and despite all that, he's more sexy than any white court vampire!

For me, the best villains are the ones with the simplest of motivations. Like Venjix.

Venjix Tribute

At first, he was a Superman villain, always with the "I'll be back!" and "This time, Corinth will be destroyed!" and all the while, he simply sat in his base, letting others do the work. He got fed up, downloaded himself into a body, took the fight personally, and did extremely well, and then continued to contribute in person. And yet still he remained one dimensional.

Then, when he finally is on the verge of victory, and by extension, ending the human race entirely, we see his true motivations. He's just an angry child who never got to know him mum. She created him, was taken away before she could pull him in and give him his boundaries, without the parents guidance, he just destroyed everything, for as much reason as any kid destroys anything. None.

That's the scariest motivation for any villain. None.

Kane's actor is probably the best in any of the C&C games, at least consistently. C&C 3: Tiberium Wars had probably the best acting of the whole series. They got Ironside and Billy Dee Williams. Trisha Helfer was in it too.

I'm joking, of course. C&C3 had great acting, and Joseph D. Kucan is ... I mean, I don't know if he could play anything but Kane, but he plays Kane so well. I mean, when you listen to him, you sort of get how the Brotherhood of Nod can have so many supporters. Heck, I'd probably join up. Add Tricia Helfer to the list and I wouldn't think twice about it. And that's despite how much I like Michael Ironside.

Kane from C&C was already mentioned he takes my number one spot for just being one of the most cunning and intelligent villians I've ever seen.
Cobra Commander not from the old Gi-joe, the newer Renegades series, he kinda reminded me of kane a bit.
basicly this cobra commander is dying of old age and disease, having single handedly built cobra into a world wide group and terrorist superpower, he's facing his own subordinates, trying to keep the sharks from smelling the blood in the water so to speak. at the same time he's trying to push for a cure, and keep the US military in the dark.
Then these joes stumble across his lab and fuck up his bio-viper project, and nearly expose cobra's dirty underbelly to the world.
he actually acts like the head of a "ruthless terrorist orginization" instead of his bumbling, buffoonish 80's counterpart.

other villians let me see...
in terms of pure and simple evil Soron from the Lord of the Ring's trilogy, not the movies, but the way he's described in the books as a sort of evil mind without a body that's been festering, and the only thing that prevents him from going to the afterlife is a ring, his one weakness. a being that casts a dark shadow across the land even beyond death, who's corruption tears down the greatest wizard of the era, playing on his desire for industry and greed, who controls all the dark things across the land wild and tame, and twists everything... and the battles were freaking brutal in the books, straight out of WW1.
Aragon and the heroes fought him not to win, but all as a distraction so that somthing so small... a pair of tiny hobbits. Could carry his anchor into the heart of his empire and destroy it.

When I was a little kid, the villain I was most scared of was Gmork!
Neverending Story Clip - Gmork Scene
[noembed]The end of the previous scene[/noembed]. For some reason it's cut out of the previous vid.

A little later (but really only a little) I was scared shitless by a villain in the Maiden and the Monster tale. It was made in 1978 (void of all CGI, boy, it's a sight for sore eyes) when Juraj Herz was politically prosecuted by the regime and was forbidden to create real movies, so he at least made a fairy tale. Only it's not a fairy tale, it's a full-blooded horror! And a very clever one. You don't actually see the monster until almost half of the movie had passed - until then you only guess while you're served terrified looks and shocks of those who happen to cross the path of the monster as he spreads the terror, aided by his (mostly) repugnant servants, always sulking secretly in the shadows.
Panna a netvor 2
The end when the talons dig into the woman's tender flesh and she collapses still gives me chills.

You rarely get to see things clearly, blatantly, more likely they are just hinted. Like here when the maiden [noembed]uncovers the story of the castle and its owner[/noembed].

It's as dark, creepy and suggestive as it just can get from the first second. It's also underlined by an incredibly enigmatic and atmospheric music (by Petr Hapka) from the [noembed]opening credicts[/noembed].

Today I would have to go with [noembed]Khan Noonien Singh[/noembed]. ;-)

Indeed. It could be a description of either the 800 or the 1000 if not for the "half its body missing" remark. The 1000 model doesn't really do the partial-body thing since, if you were to cut it in half, it would just reform. The 800 gets bisected near the end of the first movie and chases Sarah through some kind of machinery with just its torso.

Like all good information on the internet, read it on Cracked xD Thanos has a personality disorder where he subconsciously sabotages his own plans, since he feels he doesn't deserve to win with all his powers. I mean, it's a bit unfair... plus he doesn't know he's doing it.

And with Dr Doom, his mum sold her soul to Satan to make sure he was always successful, so whenever he had the Fantastic 4 on the ground, he would get a sudden bout of insecurity and mother issues. Did he do this, or was this just a cosmic hand out from his dead mum?

Wait, don't Doom and Thanos lose on purpose because of psychological reasons?

I've heard that explanation applied to Thanos... wherein it may make sense, especially given how much he's in love with Death.  Personally, I'd be more inclined to think that rather than "lose on purpose" he sets up a means by which his enemies could defeat him.  So it's less about a "want to lose" than a desire for the game to at least be somewhat balanced.

But I've never heard it applied to Doom.

Usually Doom loses because he can't conceive of failure and thus doesn't account for the possibility.  Kind of in the classic Bond villain respect.  There's no way that Plan A could fail, so I don't require a Plan B.  He's typically up against Reed Richards.  A man that's not only Doom's intellectual equal (or arguably superior) but also a man that spends every waking moment coming up with contingencies for eventualities that have like a .0001% chance of happening.  Richards has typically already considered Doom's Plan A and made up a B, C, D, E, and F of his own.

Now, I don't doubt that there's been a huge number of stories where Doom is reduced to an emo kid with mommy issues.  But I think that's more from a misunderstanding of the character and what makes him interesting.  There are writers who always feel a need to reduce a character to a pathos.

Hi all! I was just cruising the forums and I saw this thread. It was one of my acceptance questions so I thought I'd repost here and share my thoughts. My favorite villain is Anton Chigurh from No Country for Old Men. This clip gives you an idea why I like him.

Probably Gul Dukat from Deep Space 9.

Like all good information on the internet, read it on Cracked xD Thanos has a personality disorder where he subconsciously sabotages his own plans, since he feels he doesn't deserve to win with all his powers. I mean, it's a bit unfair... plus he doesn't know he's doing it.

And with Dr Doom, his mum sold her soul to Satan to make sure he was always successful, so whenever he had the Fantastic 4 on the ground, he would get a sudden bout of insecurity and mother issues. Did he do this, or was this just a cosmic hand out from his dead mum?

I hope that's not the case, but if it is, I'm glad I haven't read many stories with the two characters; making them out to be so perfect the only reason they lose is themselves just drags them down and every character in the story.

Hey, this is a medium where Spiderman, the most goody good to ever do good, gave up his marriage and kid to Satan to save his Aunt from a bullet wound. Dr Doom being an emo kid with insecurity over a dead mother is pretty par for the course.

Everybody blames Peter for that, but when it came to that point Peter wanted to back out of the deal.  It was Mary Jane that said "Okay" and talked him into it.  Even telling Mephisto that he'd never agree unless she pushed him into it.

Also, they didn't have a child.  Well, at least not at the time that the story takes place.  There was a daughter, May, in the 90's but she just sorta vanished from continuity.  To my knowledge no explanation was ever offered as to what happened.

Not that either of those two concessions justifies the story.  But that goes back to the "bad writing" or in that case, "bad editorial mandate".  Especially since Aunt May's come back from the dead more times from Jean Grey, most commonly due to the fact that the editors just forget she was dead after a while.

PR Villian Tribute: Mesogog

Mesogog. The creation of Anton Mercer, a famed Paleontologist, studying strange orbs that were formed by the asteroid impact of the great ice age. Along with dinosaur DNA, his research went up in smoke in a lab accident, transforming him into the Jekyll and Hyde of Power Rangers. As Mr Mercer, he is working tirelessly to reverse the effect, while Mesogog attempts to restore the world to the way it was, making reptiles the dominant life forms on Earth.

What I loved about Mesogog wasn't an attack or a gimmick or even his design, it was how unflinching and threatening he was. Seriously, his voice, the way he looms over his henchmen, pacing with his arms folded behind him like he's absolutely calm, and then out of no where moving in to speak, watching for them to flinch. He loves it. You can just tell, he gets off on the fear in his subordinates, and he has absolutely no qualms throwing them to the fire to further his goals.

But with the way he moves, and the long slitted attire, I was expecting a more oriental fighting style, something where he waits for an attack, then just sort of flows out of the way and puts his palm into their back once, gently, and somehow this makes them fall to their knees and their suit starts exploding sparks randomly. What we got seemed the polar opposite, a lot of powerful but slow attacks with grabs and throws.

Mesogog had to be cool.  He was up against Tommy. *Tommy fan* But yeah, he was pretty bad-ass.  From the production side, too, you have to give it to the effects team to do his face as well as they did on the budget they probably had.

I think my favorite MMPR baddie would probably be Ransik, though.  I liked the father-daughter story, and his semi-redemption... turned full-redemption in Wild Force.

One thing always bothered me about him, though...

When Ransik fights the Rangers at the end of the series, he so thoroughly owns all six of them in such a short effortless fight that I spent the whole climax screaming, "Why didn't you just do that in the first place?"

Also, he had his fair share of goofy silly episodes, like the one where he tried to set up his daughter with the Blue Ranger.  So I can see how he might lose some of his intimidation factor when he spends just as much time acting like the dad in a sitcom as he does acting like the leader of a mutant empire.

Yeah, Ransik fell short for me for those reasons. Too silly at times, his motivations were pretty weak, so hard to consider him a Magneto when he's not sympathetic, but really, the main problem was the writing in Time Force was VERY erratic. It was like there was a full team of writers who weren't working together and had poor oversight. And really, Power Rangers must be an absolute nightmare behind the camera, considering how its made from stock footage.

OMG! I can't believe I forgot my favourite villain of all time D= this must be corrected.

PRLG-Trakeena & Deviot Merge and Villamax Dies

A lil backstory. Daddy was an evil insect, sheltered her, but tried to make her mutate into a full bug. She didn't want to lose her beauty and ran away. She was unprepared for the harsh world, got her ass kicked, and an honorable but still evil knight took her under his wing. the Rangers mortally wounded her father, she came back in time to say goodbye, and his tentacle became her staff. And thus begins the fall of Trakeena to insanity, one of the darkest, most well written villains in Power Rangers history.

I'll admit openly. I was very sadface when she got beaten :(

And really, Power Rangers must be an absolute nightmare behind the camera, considering how its made from stock footage.

I think Time Force was one of my favorites of the Power Rangers (probably tied with Dino Thunder, and right behind Zeo and SPD) franchise.  It was actually probably one of the easier ones for them to make, too, it follows the plot of Mirai Sentai Timeranger pretty closely.  So it was probably just a matter of getting them into similar locations and hoping people ignored the fact that, once again, yellow was a dude.

It will probably bug me forever that Wes' power-up mode was magic based, though.  Everything else in the series had a future-tech theme... and suddenly he's got magic.  It felt out of place.

As for Ransik specifically, I think it's the lack of ability to sympathize with him that actually makes him better for the medium.  You can't tell yourself that his victory won't effect characters you care about.  With Magneto, no matter which side wins the end-result is peace, it's just the cost that he and Xavier disagree about.  With Ransik it was just rhetoric to further his actual goals of power and revenge against a perceived enemy.  There may have been a very real event or prejudice that had caused him to lash out in the first place, but in the end, even he wasn't trying to use it to justify how far he wanted to take his payback.

He felt a lot like Megatron in that respect.  Only he lacked the charisma and strength of will to hold his army together all at once... since the excuse for not letting them all out at the same time was that he couldn't control them.

That's not to say he was... at all... a better villain than Magneto.  My personal opinion is that Magneto's probably the best that Marvel has, and certainly my favorite thing about the X-Men.  Well... my favorite thing about the X-Men, right after Rogue.

My (least) favorite comment of his is how Captain America was 'irrelevant' to modern American values. IE.. an honorable soldier type was an antique.

Yeah, I don't think the ideals of character of Steve Rogers can really ever be "obsolete".  Then again, I'm kinda biased, he's my favorite Superhero. ^.^;

But he embodies the same character spirit as Superman, Optimus Prime, or even The Doctor.  That whole "Freedom is an inherent right to everybody" belief accompanied by the "And I will personally fuck up whoever tries to take that right away from somebody" spirit embodied in a really badass way.

Actually, I think Heroes would have been more successful in general if each season had focused on a new group of super-people entirely.  With maybe certain characters playing support roles later on.  That way they could have left Sylar mysterious and threatening and predatory even if they'd decided to keep using him after the climax of season 1.

But that's just an opinion... Sylar never being as awesome as he was in season 1 is something I can agree with, though.

In the same vein as Thanos... Darkseid from DC comics.  He might even be more awesome.  I mean, when's the last time Thanos broke into somebody's house and totally sat on their couch?  'Cause Darkseid does that all the time.

In seriousness I think they're about even on coolness.
