In my new superhero book, I will be featuring a hulking supervillain that can pose a serious threat to both the superhero and the public in general. This individual will be a combination between Doomsday from DC Comics, the Tyrants from Resident Evil, and the Nomu from My Hero Academia. He will not be the final villain in the story, but he will be the superhero’s opponent before the main villain. The superhero will not walk away from this fight unscathed.
Before I proceed, I should warn you that this post may contain spoilers. I have been keeping track of the manga version of My Hero Academia and I am deeply intrigued with the transformation of Tomura Shigaraki.
After forming the Paranormal Liberation Front, Doctor Ujiko promised to make Shigaraki even stronger through a complex surgery. This process was said to last four months and be indescribably painful, but the rewards are worthwhile because it could potentially make Shigaraki even stronger than All For One. We saw how powerful All For One was during his final battle with All Might and he was way past his prime. The thought of Shigaraki being stronger than that, combined with being able to disintegrate an entire city with a single touch, would easily make Shigaraki the single most powerful and dangerous supervillain in the entire story.
In recent chapters, I saw Shigaraki get hooked up to a series of tubes and wires with Doctor Ujiko cheering from the sidelines. The surgery looks like a combination between the surgery that gave Wolverine his adamantium skeleton and claws as well as the surgery that got Bane hooked to the venom super-steroid. As we learned from Izuku Midoriya, when a person receives an unnatural power, their body would either be damaged or destroyed from the extreme kickback. Considering Ujiko is making Shigaraki stronger than All For One, the power Shigaraki would gain could kill him. With this in mind, I believe that Shigaraki’s body will receive a series of physical upgrades and augmentations that would allow him to withstand the extreme kickback of his new power. Once those modifications are done, Ujiko would then proceed to implant the power or powers that would make Shigaraki stronger than All For One. However, like physical therapy or adapting to an organ transplant, I think Shigaraki would need time to get used to his intense changes. That could explain why Shigaraki’s surgery would take four months to complete.
However, due to the most recent chapters, Shigaraki is at risk of awakening from his surgery a month too early. If that happens, Shigaraki may not be able to complete his surgery and his true strength may not be realized. Either that or his body may not have fully recovered from his changes and his new power would be dangerously unstable. However, if Ujiko and his High-End Nomu can fend off the heroes and give him and Shigaraki a chance to regroup to another location, then Ujiko might buy enough time to complete the surgery. We shall see as the final war between heroes and villains begins!
I have some ideas for the origin story of my new supervillain. Basically, I will be drawing inspiration from the 1941 film known as Citizen Kane. In Citizen Kane, a man who had everything started out as a rebellious idealist before his wealth and power gradually and inevitably corrupted and isolated him. Basically, my supervillain will be an aspiring young politician who comes from a privileged background. When his powers manifest, he realizes that he could use his powers to further his political ambitions. At first, he pursues his political agenda out of naive idealism, but over time it corrupts him and makes him keep wanting more. Eventually, this individual becomes a full fledged supervillain and starts a campaign of chaos across the country.
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.
