I thought of a frightening power for my next supervillain to have in my next superhero book. The most common motivation for supervillains is to destroy things. With this in mind, what if their power doesn’t just destroy things, but is destruction itself. Imagine being able to destroy everything you touch until not even dust remains. The most extreme example of destruction was in the anime Bleach, where a character possessed a power of destruction that was so complete that not even his target’s soul would be able to reincarnate itself. To make my new supervillain’s power even more devastating, I think I will give them a form of destruction that destroys their target’s body and mind. As the target’s body disintegrates, parts of their mind including memories and emotions also fade away until nothing is left. You could also control how fast your target is destroyed. You could destroy them instantaneously or destroy them slowly and painfully. The very thought of this power frightens me to the extreme, which assures me that it will make my new supervillain all the more terrifying.
I have been reading the latest chapters of My Hero Academia and I was overwhelmed by Tomura Shigaraki’ transformation as a supervillain. In his most recent battle, Shigaraki managed to free himself of all restrictions and as a result reached his full power. Earlier in the series, Shigaraki’s decaying powers were able to disintegrate whatever he touched. Sometimes his target would be an opponent’s arm and as he progressed he was able to disintegrate a whole person instantly. Now, Shigaraki’s decaying powers have reached apocalyptic levels to the point in which he could destroy an entire city with a single touch and whatever attacks are used against him are disintegrated as well. He now has unstoppable attacks and impenetrable defenses. Not only did Shigaraki win his battle, but he also acquired an army of over a hundred thousand loyal followers. Not only has Shigaraki’s power been increased and his spirit freed of all moral restrictions, but he acquired a sense of charisma that he previously lacked. As a result, some of his new minions used to work for his master All For One and now they are working for Shigaraki. In a single battle, Shigaraki reached his full potential as a supervillain, gained a massive army, and wields more resources and influence than the entire superhero community. He has become the single greatest threat to both superheroes and society as a whole since All For One at his height. To make matters worse, Shigaraki is currently undergoing a form of surgery that will make him even more powerful; possibly stronger than All For One! I watched Shigaraki destroy an entire city with a single touch so it is terrifying to think how he could become stronger than even that! It is official; Tomura Shigaraki is on his way to become a Thanos-level supervillain. I look forward to seeing Shigaraki complete his transformation when he finishes his surgery. Even though Izuku Midoriya is destined to fight Shigaraki, he currently doesn’t stand a chance against Shigaraki even without the surgery. It is going to be interesting to see how Midoriya will close the power gap between them.
After much brainstorming for the first major supervillain in my upcoming superhero book, I have decided on what he will be like. He will essentially be Karl Ruprect Kroenen, the Joker, and Dr. Frankenstein all rolled into one. Like the Joker, my character will be a nihilistic and psychopathic anarchist. Like Karl Ruprect Kroenen, my character will be a deadly fighter when the situation requires and will have done extensive and horrific modifications to his own body. Like Dr. Frankenstein, my character will be a chaotic scientist who does not care about morals or ethics as long as his thirst for knowledge is appeased in the end. Overall, my character is going to be a serious and nasty piece of work!
I had a frightening idea about the first major supervillain in my new superhero book. This guy is going to be VERY messed up both physically and mentally. He will suffer from body dysmorphic disorder, which gives him an uncontrollable urge to physically mutilate and modify himself. He also is both a sadist and a masochist, meaning that he LOVES inflicting pain and receiving pain. He also has narcissistic personality disorder, thinking anything he makes or mutilates are his masterpieces. Finally, he will be a nihilistic anarchist who wants to watch the world burn. All of this is combined with a genius level intellect allows him to use his intellect in unpredictable ways. To make him even creepier, I will be giving him a mad scientist-like accent such as Eastern European like Doctor Frankenstein. I guess you could say I am attempting to create a supervillain who is just as insane as the Joker, which is a mighty challenge because the Joker is as crazy as they come. This guy is going to be one of the darkest and most messed up supervillains I have ever made.
It looks like we will finally see Jeremiah Valeska complete his transformation into the Joker in the Gotham Series Finale. I have noticed a few things about this version of the Joker. After he fell in the vat of chemicals, he supposedly became brain dead. However, ten years later, he wakes up when Bruce Wayne returns to Gotham City. We know that Jeremiah developed a twisted obsession with Bruce Wayne and only woke up when Bruce returned. It could be that the vat of chemicals were only part of the reason Jeremiah was catatonic until now. It could be he lost all sense of fun and purpose when Bruce left Gotham, but when Bruce came back he saw a golden opportunity to have another play date with his favorite victim. However, he clearly runs into someone who is far more fun than Bruce Wayne ever was: BATMAN!!! Thus the feud between superhero and supervillain begins!
This reminds of me of what happened to the Joker in The Dark Knight Returns. After Batman was forced into retirement for ten years, the Joker became catatonic and lost all sense of fun and purpose. But when Batman returned, the Joker was back to his old homicidal self. I think this is the approach the showrunners are going with Jeremiah’s character arc as the Joker. I can’t wait to find out if I am right.
I had a new book idea that involves creating an encyclopedia of every superhuman power in the superhero genre. I have acquired a great deal of knowledge about superhumans and their powers that I feel like sharing my knowledge with the rest of the world. I thought the best way would be to compile an encyclopedia of superpowers. Let me know what you think and I will let you know when I make it.
I have always been a fan of powerful heroes battling powerful villains with epic music playing in the background. The powers that these two combatants wield would be so great that they could demolish entire cities as they clashed with one another. It is like watching two gods fighting amongst the heavens . . . a thing of utter combative beauty! I have seen these kinds of battles countless times in anime, films, and superhero comics. In the final battle of my new superhero series, I will be depicting one such duel to the death where the main character fights the main villain in a titanic struggle that would level multiple cities. I am getting goosebumps just imagining it!
