ok, a thought came to mind ~ only to be a topic, here & now.. ;} the subject of heroes & villians, those archetypes of legendary nature that serve as inspiration for us to carry on with daily life...they can be found in literature, film, music, animations, history, comics & even video games ~ we cross paths with them, & while most are experienced & brushed aside, there are others that send shimmers into our minds & hearts, for their ways of being, their modes of thinking ~ their very essence creates a spark...& after seeing them in action, we think & reflect on just how amazing they are ~ perhaps to a point of collecting all insight as to who they are all about, or perhaps to the point of worshipping (& yes, even such fans exist..). so this topic of the moment is this ~ who(m) are you inspired by & why? remember that the skies the limit here & if there's more than one, curious minds wish to know.. mmm, for myself ~ i'm drawn to the following archetypes..
    Aeon Flux ~ to this day, Aeon is an inspiration to me ~ perhaps because she represents a part of me that would like to be in a similar profession that she's in, especially in the world that she's a part of; so in respect, i'm a big fan of her style & personality, not to mention the series ~ she takes nothing from no one, in a professional manner, of course..

    Ayame (Tenchu) ~ a recent addition, but one worthy of note ~ anyone who is familiar with Tenchu (Fatal Shadows) will know what i speak of...along the same lines as Aeon i suppose, but far more stealthy...it is the spirit of the warrior that attracts me to this one, a spirit that is so hidden in this day & age......now whether or not that's a good thing remains to be determined..

    Etna (Disgaea) ~ she's bubbly in the twisted sense, just don't get on her bad side! but i really like her style of dress; i'll wager none here knew that about me, yes? ;p

    I-no (Guilty Gear) ~ i'm a fan for the series, & I-no is my favorite character to use when playing; her style is unique, & i really like how she incorporates the power of sound into her combos; not to mention the hat that has a persona all on its own.. & as you can guess, she is my avatar to the left <<<

one last note..
villians are also valid in this thread ~ is that possible? ;}

Super Evil All Time Villain List with pictures!

Yea ok so I am more inclined to the darker archetype. Be they inclined to evil for personal gain or maybe a simple misguidance. Remember, evil will always triumph, because good is dumb.

------------SPOILERS--------------------------------

In no particular order:

Original Trilogy Darth Vader - The Empire Strikes Back

The Dark Lord of the Sith, simply a hand of the Emperor? For this presentation I am going to stick with the Lord Vader from the original three movies, suffice to say, this character is not taken to full potental in the Prequel series. From the menacing black armor and deaths head mask to the creepy regulated breathing apperatus, Vader just personifies evil. Perhaps just a herald of the Empror and, in the first movie, seemingly commanded by Tarkin, there's no denying that Anakin Skywalker belongs in this list.

Thulsa Doom - Conan the Barbarian

"They say Thulsa Doom is a thousand years old." Sorcerer of Set, bloodthirsty overlord of pillaging hordes, and general nuisance to Conan, Thulsa Doom satisfies his lust for weapons of steel and murder through sheer brutality and dominance. At a whisp of his hand he compels his followers to seal their fate for their devotion to his dark cause.

Roy Batty - Blade Runner

Misunderstood evil in a replicant shell. Roy Batty only seeks the answer to the question any sentient being asks, that being "who am I?" Batty does not know good from evil, only that he is alive and will be soon be gone forever. In an epic cinematic moment, Batty comes face to face with his creator Tyrell, his "god" if you will. Unable to reconcile his undeveloped emotions in the face of the creator, he does what comes natural to his being, he viciously murders Tyrell. At the close of this scene, as he "descends" in an elevator, the impact of what he has done hits him and the realization floors him.


Kid Miracleman - Miracleman
user posted image
Reinvented by Alan Moore, Kid Miracleman is arguably the most malicious super villian ever. Young Johnny Bates, being experimented on by mad scientist Dr. Emil Gargunza, receives the ability to switch bodies with a more powerful being via a post hypnotic phrase. Kid Miracleman is driven insane by being trapped inside Johnny Bates' psyche and when finally released, unleashes a killing spree in London, murdering and mutilating thousands in a psychotic rampage at super speed for hours. Finally brought down by Miracleman, an exhausted Kid Miracleman utters his phrase and reverts to his child form. Miracleman sees his chance to end Kid Miracleman's menace and kills young Johnny Bates.

William Leather - Planetary
user posted image
Loosely based on Johhny Storm from Fantastic Four, William Leather is one of the Four Voyagers who are mutated by dimensional anomalies in space. The Four Voyagers are the antithesis of the Fantastic Four, bent on world domination. In an homage to DC comics heroes, an infant alien lands on earth, sent by a dying race on a doomed planet. William Leather is first on scene to survey the situation. In one of the most chilling scenes in the series, Leather decides the best course of action is to delay the inevitable and murders the helpless alien.

There you have it. I could go on but I narrowed the list down to these.
