This evil swarmy hive of villainy...  
I saw a quiz that asked who your favorite villain was. And I spent quite a while thinking on that. Because how do you choose that? Hottest? Smartest? Funniest? Best bad guy in your favorite 'verse? Or can it be someone in a less favorite 'verse if they're particularly exceptional? Is it the one you most want to win (or does that just mean you don't like the hero much)? Is it the one you most like to write? The one you most want to be? The one you most want to shtup? What is the main criterion for picking your favorite villain? There are so many ways that you can judge this question.

So how do you determine your favorite villain? And who is?


And speaking of favorites, you all got the "ultimate driving song" wrong, the correct answer is Red Barchetta from Rush. =P

I think my favorite villains are always the ones that mirror my own dark side. Either that or the ones that have a special-ish relationship to the hero -- a mutual respect or an understanding or a failed friendship or relationship -- rather than just trying to blow the hero up. :)

So who is your most favorite villain and which specific of those reasons is why?

Well, there's Angel from Buffy, of course, in season 2. They were in love, he went evil, and she still loved him. Plus, we remembered him as a good guy, so you just kept thinking there had to be hope for them yet, meanwhile he's trying to kill all her friends and they're having these bitter hand-to-hand fights...

And Lex Luthor, as portrayed by Smallville, because he and Clark Kent are so close, and you see his struggle with his dark side, and all his humanity. And you realize it's just a matter of time before they're going to be mortal enemies, yet they're like brothers.

That's the short version on both... :)

I think it's a mixture of a lot of things. One way or another, it'd either be someone you can identify with or someone who believes in the complete opposite of your ideals...

I'd say Jizzmaster 0 from Orgazmo :P

Because he's an evil porncomedy fiend, the complete opposite of the real life me ;)

Seriously, is that how you would determine it? And who would you choose then?

David Bowie as Jareth from Labyrinth is one I grew up watching and feel connected to. The way he speaks mesmerizes me. He's a villian with sexual tension, although his outfit left less to the imagination! lol

I guess I chose him because the movie has been a childhood reminant filled with mystery and fantasy.

Okay, thanks, not a lot of people answered that, I appreciate it!

Hope I helped a bit, did you make up your mind about who your fav villian is?

I already knew that one. It took me some thought, but I knew before I posted. Drakken from Kim Possible. Cause I want him to win even though I like the good guys ^_^

*nods* I like that reason, very original! :D
