In the superhero genre, the hero has to overcome an archenemy in order to achieve victory. Every supervillain has certain aspects to them that make them a worthy challenge to the hero. Some are completely insane with no logical goals, others are highly intelligent and methodical in their diabolical plans, and a few are far more complex. When I designed the supervillains the Young Guardians would be up against throughout the series, I drew inspiration from heinous individuals I encountered personally and general concepts of what villains are. With Cyber Shadow, I took the sadistic and mentally unstable mind of a school bully and demonstrated how he became an empowered, vengeful serial killer when his already troubled mind was struggling to adapt to his cybernetic enhancements. With Fanoxean, I evaluated everything that is considered the epitome of pure evil and gave it the physical form of a being who started out as an innocent bystander, but becomes possessed by a malevolent entity that seeks destruction above all else while relishing inflicting turmoil wherever it goes. With Vogan, I took what I considered the darkest aspects of my personality in order to create a man who has seen so many indescribable things in his long lifespan and lost so much that he becomes disillusioned and has a goal that he blindly believes will make the world a better place. Every supervillain has different personalities and motivations, but they generally seek to achieve their goals no matter how much pain and suffering they inflict on those around them.
