Evil Genuis

Wouldn't the good guys be pretty boring without any bad guys to defeat? Aren't we understood by whom are enemies are? Thanks to The Eagle for hosting The Evil Genius Blogfest.

This is so easy. My current favorite evil genius is blue and very cute. Megamind is everything an evil genius should be.  He has witting dialogue, an oddball and loyal sidekick, and a perfect hero to fight. He lives to destroy Metro City.  He has an endearing habit of mispronouncing words, a habit that will cause him lots of trouble.

Megamind comes from a troubled background.  He was exposed to a rough, morally-challenged crowd in his young life.  His role models directly influenced his decision to move to the dark side.  Rejected by his peers at every turn, is it any wonder Megamind grew up to take vengeance on those who had mistreated him and judged him.

But the best thing about Megamind is his journey, from society's reject to the saviour of his tormentors. Only a true intellectual superior could devise a way to save Metro City from an evil even greater than our intrepid bad guy.

  1. I never thought of who my favorite bad guy is. I guess I like characters like "The Crow", who are more vigilante. Or maybe good guys who act mean, like Clint Eastwood's character in Gran Torino, or Justin Chambers' "Alex Karev" in Grey's Anatomy. The Frankenstein monster is a sad case of a creature who has a soft heart yet humans treat him so badly he does evil things. How about "Cujo", a dog who gets rabies. Those are a few different types of "bad guys" than the usual ones that may come to mind.

  2. Hm, interesting question! I'm usually a wimp so I tend not to identify much for the bad guys. I'll need to ponder this!

  5. My favorite villain? I dunno, really. But I wanted to stop in and say howdy. And, and, and, guess what?

    I scored my second free toothpaste, with the six cents overage applied to the rest of my order.

    Woohoo.

    Happy Writing and New Week to You.

  9. What a great idea! I recently read a great book with an evil genius in it called Angel Maker by Stefan Brijs. Can't say the guy was likable, but he certainly was bad.

  13. I know it's really wrong - but I fancied Megamind when I watched the film.

    I don't really want to read into that too much! What does that make me eh? *shakes head* Shameful.

  19. Megamind! Good stuff. I love the bad guys and the bad guys turned good guys trope. My favorite of those being The Grinch Who Stole Christmas and Mr. Darcy.

    But my favorite bad guys are too many to list. Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirz, Dr. Horrible- for sure, and I have to go with an industry standard and say Skeletor. AMong others.

    Great post, Sue!
