Yes, bad… not as in immoral. After all, some like Dr. Doom and Two Face actually did many things they thought were in the name of justice and good.
No I mean bad as in terribly thought out or corny.
For example, “The Shredder” from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
What was his special power exactly?
Wearing spikes around and complaining about stuff?
“Commander Kraken”…who was basically just a pirate.
I think my favorite though is “Hell Cow.”
Best backstory ever.
Originally a cow living in Switzerland over 300 years ago, Bessie was bitten by Dracula one night when he could not find any human to feed on. The next morning her owner found her dead and buried her. Three days later however, she rose from the grave Hell bent on revenge towards Dracula and his kind.
During it’s adventures it encountered Man-Thing and Howard the Duck. Although she was staked at the end of this adventure with Howard and the Man-Thing, more recently she was seen alive and well when he met Deadpool, the Merc with a Mouth.
Yeah… a cow bitten by Dracula last seen with Howard the Duck.
Now that’s BAD.
And what nefarious goals does an undead cow seek? Blood I guess… but does it still give milk? Does she still like grass? How hard is it to really be defeated by a foe that can’t even manipulate a door knob or stairs?
Do you have any ridiculous villains you love to hate?
