With all the books and movies I have come across in my life, almost all of them have had a villain in them of some kind. This does not make it difficult for me, however, in choosing my favorite villain. My favorite villain is Loki, the Norse shape-sifting god of mischief, in the Marvel movie, Thor.
Loki is my favorite villain because I don’t think he is fully evil – plus I have a huge crush on the actor who plays his character. Loki also doesn’t strive to murder mass populations like the other villains who try to wipe out the whole human race. In the movie Thor, Loki simply had his brother banished. He never wanted to hurt his father or mother at all, or anyone else who didn’t rise against him. Even when he comes back in The Avengers, he has no intension of really killing Thor or anyone else for that matter. It’s when things go wrong when he becomes a little worried and some anger comes to the surface. He wants to feel powerful and find his place, not fully understanding it doesn’t have to be as king or leader. I love Norse mythology, and just everything about this villain in general. I was very pleased when the creators of Marvel’s movie, The Avengers, chose Loki to be the villain out of all the many villains from the other Marvel movies. This proves to me that Loki was such a great villain, he beat out all the others and simply had to come back. I am very glad he did!
Of course Loki never wins, that is simply the way of things. Good always triumphs over evil. At least he is still alive.
