Welcome to Coffee Talk! Let’s start off the day by discussing whatever is on your (nerd chic) mind. Every morning I’ll kick off a discussion and I’m counting on you to participate in it. If you’re not feelin’ my topic, feel free to start a chat with your fellow readers and see where it takes you. Whether you’re talking about videogames, Steven Slater gloriously quitting his Jet Blue job, why the hell Evander Holyfield is still fighting, or if the voices in your head talk to Randy Orton’s, Coffee Talk is the place to do it.
In yesterday’s Coffee Talk, we had a fun conversation about our favorite superheroes. Let’s take a stroll on the dark side today and talk about our favorite super villains! In comics, games, movies, etc., heroes are only as good as their villains. Threats seem much more epic when they’re executed by a devious mastermind. The fictional world needs great villains!
I gravitate towards guys like Darkseid and Thanos. They’re ridiculously powerful character with complex powers, yet their goals are so simple — they’re just want to kill everyone. Darkseid is obsessed with the Anti-Life Equation, while Thanos wants to kill millions in order to get Lady Death in bed.
More recently, I’ve enjoyed Prometheus in DC Comics. He’s smart, cool, calculated, and frickin’ funny. I love that he’s a chatterbox that flippantly talks about his plans and he’s dispatching great heroes (dude nearly took out the Justice League by himself!). In a lot of ways, he reminds me of a smarter version of Spider-Man gone evil.
How about you guys and dolls? Who are you some of your favorite villains?
