This week's topic is All About Villains - it can be top 10 favorite/ most compelling villains in books, favorites from TV, or whatever. I'm going with a rogues gallery from both books and TV, and movies too. I didn't put a ton of thought into this, I kinda just went with whoever came to mind. I mean this could be quite the list, so I went with who I thought of first. So... on to the villains!
Is this guy the baddest of the bad, or what?
Second only to the top dog above.
Total douchebag. Wait- how did he get here???
Okay back to the likeable villains. Forget Jennifer Lawrence this is my Mystique. All badass all the time.
Haha I love your list! These are some amazing villains - some you love to hate and some that are so badass you can't help but root for them a little too ;) I can't help but love Harley Quinn, Mystique and Deathstroke :)ReplyDelete
Those three are awesome. And thanks- I agree. :)Delete
LMAO! Love the Trump sneak in :) I almost put Snow on my list and I can't remember why I took him off... Oh well, love your list!ReplyDelete
Ha ha I didn't know if I'd piss anyone off but hey it's all fun right?Delete
Awesome list. I could've added more to my list but I didn't. I'm finding I missed several. I'm glad you included Mystique on there. She's unbelievable.ReplyDelete
I love Mystique.Delete
Gotta love Harley Quinn and Mystique! I haven't even seen Insurgent yet because I kind of lost interest in the film series - but glad to hear Four's mum was done well!ReplyDelete
Thanks for visiting my TTT
I liked her! And HQ and Mystique are great, love 'em both.Delete
LOL - the commentary is my favorite part. :)ReplyDelete
TTT @ Krista's Dust Jacket
Thanks- glad you liked it. I had fun w/ this one...Delete
Good one! I actually kind of liked what they did with Peter in Insurgent.ReplyDelete
Yeah I didn't mind the movie.Delete
Your list is awesome and I commend you for adding Trump. Glad to see we are both giving Harley Quinn some love. I have loved her for years, even before they started featuring her in movies. Nice job Greg!ReplyDelete
Yeah he fits right in doesn't he? :)Delete
Yay for HQ!!
Hahahahahahahaha Trump! Love that little sneak in there. 😂 Great list!ReplyDelete
Great list! I don't recognize a lot of these, but I totally agree with the ones I do know. :) President Snow - ick. Forgot about him. Awful character, but I love what Donald Sutherland did with him in the movie version.ReplyDelete
Ugh- Snow is the worst.Delete
Trump is the baddest of them all *shudder* I can NOT believe I forgot Palpatine! He's so vile and diabolical! And I'm (STILL) kicking myself for forgetting to include Snow in my list this week - he definitely belongs there!ReplyDelete
Agreed!! And Palpatine- he's like my FAVORITE villain.Delete
LOL, love this list! You're killing me with throwing Trump in there. I laughed out loud when I saw that.ReplyDelete
Glad you enjoyed!!Delete
Yay for Star Wars villains! And LMAO at you sneaking Trump in there. He's the absolute worst!ReplyDelete
Nice...in a bad way :)ReplyDelete
Yes to all the Star Wars villains and Deathstoke is awesome. Trump...haha, too good. Great list!ReplyDelete
I'm with you on Harley Quinn and Mystique. They're both great villains that you can feel empathy for at different points.ReplyDelete
This is a great list, Greg. You came up with some I'd forgotten about. Shame on me.ReplyDelete
Ha! I love that you have Trump in there. What a douchebag, indeed. Awesome list!ReplyDelete
Ha! I love your list, especially Trump!ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by my TTT!
Great addition of Trump to the list, LOL!ReplyDelete
Oh dear, I ADORE Slade Wilson:). He's delightful and evil and just a little bit (okay a lot) yummy. Another favorite entry is all adults on The 100, lol. They are all just a little bit villainous. Brilliant idea to include The Donald as well - Douchebag indeed!ReplyDelete
Was Slade the best or what? Loved him on that show- and that was my first exposure to his I had not seen him prior to that! And the adults on the 100- are they awful or what???Delete
Who is the villain third from the top? It looks like Manu Bennett but I've only seen him in Spartacus (which he's awesome in).ReplyDelete
Love that Trump is your ultimate villain.
And JLaw is brilliant as Mystique! :D
That is Manu Bennett- he played Slade Wilson (Deathstroke) on arrow. He's a badass in that show.Delete
Go JLaw! She did a good job, I have to admit. :)
Haha fantastic list! I like the "anyone who is an adult on 100" - they are all very weird, aren't they? Why would they act like that? But parents in YA books/series are often portrayed as the bad guys, it's just a common thing to do.ReplyDelete
President Snow is one creepy dude! I hated him more in the books - Donald Sutherland will always be Mr Bennet from Pride and Prejudice for me! :)
Ha ha thanks! I had fun w/ this one. The adults on The 100- ugh. They are SO bad. I mean they redeem themselves sometimes, but at one point or another just about every adult has been a villain.Delete
And Snow. Yeah he's the worst. I liked him as Mr. Bennet- maybe the only role I've liked him in?
Great list! Even though I haven't read or seen all of the source material. Palpatine/the Emperor and Darth Vader both made my list. I like how you included "likable" villains; if I had done that, Loki (as played by Tom Hiddleston) would definitely have made the list, as would Magneto (especially as played by Michael Fassbender, but maybe also Ian McKellen.)ReplyDelete
This is the best list EVER. First, because of The 100- accurate. I was actually contemplating doing a list just to add them, but "maybe there ARE no good guys...." (which is to say, everyone would have been on a villain list at some point haha). I LOOOVE that you chose Snow (though I couldn't decide between Snow and Coin, and I felt like the latter was spoilery, even though by now, do spoilers count?) And YES to Eric. Is that his name? Idk but I hate him.ReplyDelete
But really, you won the week with adding Trump- there is really no truer and more accurate villain, is there? Only, Suzanne Collins can't kill this one off.... (I mean, I guess we could call her and see how she feels about it, but I feel like she won't agree?) LOVE this so much!
Aww, thanks! I had a lot of fun putting it together, and The 100 I just had to include the adults. I thought am I tarring them all with an unfair brush? Then nope, I couldn't really think of one adult on that show that wasn't an asshole at one point or another. I mean Pike alone could have been this list!Delete
Snow is just the biggest %^^&*, he had to be included. :) And yes Eric! He is SUCH an ass I had to put him here (I used him on a nother post too, he's my whipping boy ). He's just such a smug little creep.
Ha ha thanks Trump sucks. I watched the debate last night and that guy pissed me off. He needs to go away.
XD Great list. Especially that political inclusion. Haha.ReplyDelete
Harley! Love her. And completely agree with you on President Snow... he is so so scary because he can so easily happen. Great list!ReplyDelete
Trump! He would be my number one disgusting villian for sure.ReplyDelete
Great list - especially the Emperor!ReplyDelete
Hahahaha. Love the addition of Trump. That was surprising . . . . but not really. :)ReplyDelete
