Mwahahahahahahaha– (takes breath)–ahahahahaha! Today, we are going to talk about EVIL for the letter ‘E’ in the A-Z Challenge. Nothing is better in a work of fiction, fandom, or other geekiness, than an amazing villain. Sometimes, a terrible bad guy can RUIN an otherwise amazing story. Not all baddies have an evil laugh, but it can definitely help at times. Otherwise, a cold smile can suffice, but only if it sends chills down your spine.

Here are a few of my favorite EVIL DOERS. Please add some of your favorite villains in the comments!

thats-not-a-fortune-magneto-memeMagneto from X-Men

What’s worse than a friend who starts off as your strongest ally, but then becomes your greatest enemy? Nothing.

Magneto (Erik Lehnsherr) started off as best friends with Professor Charles Xavier. While they both wanted to help mutants have better lives, Magneto had different views on how humans should be treated in return for years of persecution. The two friends split, each fighting each other for their beliefs. Both Michael Fassbender and Sir Ian McKellen are awesome as Magneto. <3

(Side note: Anyone else excited for the new movie? I’ll be talking about that more for the letter ‘X’ later this month)

Jake Bishop from “Dark Bishop” by Casey L Bond and Rachael Brownell

dark-bishop-coverDark Bishop is a serial series written by the two amazing authors above. If you haven’t read a serial series before, think of it like a TV show where the plot is released one episode at a time. Jake Bishop is the main character in this novel and he is an evil mastermind. I’ll post my review below (from Goodreads!) to share my thoughts about this memorable villain. I highly recommend you check it out. This definitely a mature read!

“I loved this serial series. This was my first serial series that I had the pleasure to read the entire thing in one sitting. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. Jake Bishop is a dark, tall, and handsome lawyer with a dark “American Psycho” streak running through him like bloody river. I both love him and hate him, which is what I’m sure the authors wanted me to feel. If you enjoy suspense, romance, lies, betrayal, and other topics on that vein, please pick this serial series up today. Quick read, very entertaining!” -THE KATY blog

Kylo Ren from Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens

Oh man. I loved the new evil that J.J. Abrams unleashed in the new Star Wars movie. Kylo Ren is trying to live up to his grandfather’s (Darth Vader) legend. He is angry, uncontrollable, and ready to do whatever it takes to gain more power. I am excited to see he realize his true evil potential in the next movie. I also am a huge fan of the EmoKyloRen twitter account. So funny!

Ursula from The Little Mermaid

She. Is. Terrifying. Not only does she lure a naive mermaid princess into a trap to give up her voice and try to steal her man so she won’t win, she turns into a giant Kraken-type beast that begins to boil the sea. Kids movie, people. But she’s great. She gets one of the best songs too!

    So often the villain is more interesting than the hero 🙂 Some great examples you have there. I’m a big fan of Loki, personally 🙂

      I almost posted a nice Loki meme, but felt bad I didn’t mention him in my post. Loki is a great villain!

    Kylo Ren has some epic emo hissy fits 😀 I am curious to see how he will develop as a villain. I appreciated that he was not fully in control yet.
    And Ursula, of course, is amazing 😀

      It must run in the family! Remember episode II and III? Yikes. So much angst! 😉 I am excited to see how evil Kylo gets too!

    Oh! The Bad boys! A movie is incomplete unless there is at least one bad guy to root against. Evil geniuses, violent criminals, cunning killers, mostly mean, sometimes unstable, the evil villains scare and creep us out. And you have an impressive list here!

      Thank you very much! We need to have someone to hate in movies/books, that’s for sure.

    Every protagonist needs an antagonist. This is a wonderfully written piece.

      Me too. Although my mom said she had to take me to the bathroom during that scary part at the end when she took me to see the movie in theaters. Oops! Sorry Mom…
