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!
Magneto 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 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 (Buy Dark Bishop on Amazon here)
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!
