Just a place to banter about some of the best written and most clever villains, and the supremely dumb ones. Fiction can include books/film/TV/music/games etc…
Not interested in ranking them, just BSing. I know some of you guys are more into comics than I am, so I thought it would be fun.
Well written villain: Anton Chigurh in No Country for Old Men. Guy is unapolagetec, unstoppable and does everything right. A good blend of malicious intent and competence. He shoots his boss for double booking the job FFS.
Poorly Written Villain: Voldemort. What a moron this guy is. If he leaves one hapless child alone, he gets world domination. Have one of your henchmen kill Harry with a rock, or stab him in his sleep. Why the focus on killing Harry with his own wand and that one exact spell.
Honorable mention: Harry and Marv from the Home Alone series.
