Good Bad Guys
I love a good hero in a story. Especially one with a good sense of humor, some flaws, but mostly a lot of guts. But heroes aren’t too difficult to create-not as difficult as creating a good bad guy (oxymoron, I know, but you get what I’m saying), I think anyway.
My favorite bad guy: Professor Doofenshmirtz on Disney’s Phineas and Ferb—watch the show sometime if you haven’t. It’s funny. And Professor Doofenshmirtz is hilarious. Here are some quotes (I looked these up on the web, since I’m that lazy:
“I created this for peaceful, cheese-loving purposes, but you have forced me to wield it in anger!”
“You see, back before I was evil, I was something a little less than evil: I was a bratwurst street vendor!”
“The molten lava at the Earth's core completely slipped my mind.”
How about you? Who’s your favorite bad guy?
