On this episode we talk about what makes a great villain:

  • The villain's plan should make sense (from a warped perspective)
  • Villain should be mysterious, but not a mystery
  • Their deeds should exist within a larger moral universe
  • A villain should provide a real threat
  • They should have a moral weakness

I'm super excited to share this episode with you. I've been working on it on and off for a few years.

Film and television examples in this episode include Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, The Dark Knight trilogy, Man of Steel, Daredevil, and Gotham.

Here is a link to the article I quoted: The Banality of Evil Origin Stories.
