CONCEPT: ANTI-VILLAIN

We are so accustomed to seeing a traditional villain in a story. A traditional villain can range from a sadistic psychopath or a megalomaniacal sociopath. What we sometimes overlook is a type of villain who possesses heroic characteristics. Personally, I find this type of villain more interesting than a traditional villain because they provide a more intricate story and can have motivations that are morally ambiguous. In some cases, the anti-villain’s intentions are good, but the price they are willing to pay is high beyond measure. Other times, the anti-villain has hostile intentions, but end up doing the right thing in the end. One of the main villains of my series will turn out to be an anti-villain. I won’t say who, but what I can say is that their motivations and plans will rock the modern world to its core.
