Category Archives: Villain Spotlight
Welcome back bloodsuckers, today Lilith is spotlighting a true paragon of vampires. Let’s face it, vampires, male and female versions alike, can be inherently sexy. But personally I am not an overly huge fan of those brooding, penitent characters that have become the heroes of so many stories. That’s right fangbangers, you can keep your Edwards and Angels, and I would just as soon give away Bill Compton and Stefan Salvatore. What I am looking for in a bloodsucker is just that: a villain, a schemer, and a murderer; especially one who can be sexy and smart about it. That’s what vampires are supposed to be to me. And so today I want to spotlight a hero among the succubus, a vampire villain who set the bar for all others to come: Lestat de Lioncourt.
Warning: This is a satire…..for the most part. Don’t take these words too seriously… seriously
Welcome back to the one that started it all folks. When I first came up with the idea for the Villain Spotlight, I had originally planned it to just be about fictional characters for the most part. However, in the back of my mind I always knew that eventually, the real world would come into play in some fashion. This past weekend, it happened, and it happened very quick, and very dirtily. I’m talking about retailers, and their desire to keep evil at bay….like a bunch of bitches.
Greetings my power-hungry evil-doers, today I bring you a villain spotlight from a film that really set off Joaquin Phoenix’s career. I am personally a big fan of Phoenix, and have to give the man extra props for being a fellow vegan, but even though the actor has gone on to play some very different and unique roles in subsequent films I think his portrayal of Commodus will forever be one of the best of his entire life. Commodus is truly one of the most scheming, manipulative, cruel, and vicious villains of all time, setting the bar higher than any Lannister could ever surpass. Continue forward for why Lilith thinks Commodus in the film The Gladiator is truly one of the most epic villain roles of all time.
Greetings again evil geeks, are you ready for a villain spotlight featuring a man with one of the most treacherous, diabolical, and admiring smiles and voices of all time?!?! Of course you are! And today I bring you none other than Tim Curry, the man with the most mischievous grin anyone could pull off. Much like I feel like you could add barbecue sauce to any dish to make it a little more palatable, I think you could add a healthy dose of Tim Curry to any film to make it just a little bit more enjoyable, especially for those of us evil mongerers. So continue forward for my tribute to the villain that makes us all swoon in his own way as I spotlight Tim Curry’s career.
It has seriously been far too long. Welcome back you bastards to another edition of your personal favorite look into some of the most vile, evil and lovable villains that capture your black hearts. I, and I haven’t done this enough recently, am Arthur Harkness, and I am bringing with me today a man of many jobs and deals. The King of Hell himself, Crowley; as played by Mark Sheppard, or Canton Everett Motherfucking Delaware III.
Today we turn the spotlight to a man who, for all his ups and downs, is perhaps the finest villain in the Marvel Universe.
Magneto has definitely evolved from the madman who first appeared in the pages of X-Men #1. Originally, he wasn’t too far removed from the fascists who we would later learn had set him on his course to misanthropy. He led a goose-stepping army in his tyrannical crusade toward the destruction of another race and showed no signs of humanity.
