Somewhere some psychology major is going to have a field day with this, but I love a good villain. Actually, scratch that. I love all villains. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve loved the bad guys, and somehow I always want them to win no matter what the cost. There’s a certain detachment from moral boundaries and social norms that I love on the dark side of things, and quite honestly the villains, when properly written, have more depth and more dynamic personalities than their often straight-laced counterparts.
As you can imagine, I’m routinely disappointed by the end of just about every major comic book arc. How often do the bad guys win? Not nearly enough, that’s for sure.
