CONCEPT: SUPERVILLAIN CATEGORIES

Some believe that there is no categorization about supervillains, but upon closer examination, I noticed that they each have their own unique connection to the superhero that makes them distinct. The first category is the type of supervillain who tests the superhero’s physical limits and is kind of like a common thug. Another category is the type of supervillain who is a typical sociopath and challenges the superhero on a mental level. A third category is the kind of supervillain who has an intimate knowledge of the superhero, allowing them to exploit their weaknesses for maximum damage. The last category is the kind of superhero who is more of a nuisance than a threat, indulging in petty crime such as stealing. In general, even though a supervillain always commits crimes and evil, they come in many forms, giving the superhero a challenge i any case.

    1. Because I am such a fan of the genre, I am not picky about which one is my favorite. However, if I was given a choice, I would like the supervillain who has an intimate knowledge of the superhero because it would provide the biggest challenge for the superhero.

  1. Do you know about the yin-yang symbol and the concept behind it? – something on the lines that good and evil goes together.
    Reading your post reminded me of that fact. The greatest of superheroes have greatest of Super villains, with numerous examples – Superman:Lex Luthor, Batman:Joker, Flash:Reverse Flash, Monitor:Anti-Monitor … etc.
