This week, I’m featuring a whole new different kind of tag called The Villain Squad Tag. Thanks to this lovely fellow Grey’s Anatomy and Game of Thrones fan, Dee @ Bookish Khaleesi, for tagging me. Basically, the mechanics involve answering a series of villain-ish questions. I’m adding a new rule: SKY’S THE LIMIT! Books, movies, TV show, teachers, government officials, etc. Choose whatever!
Think of your own villain identity and power!
The power to absorb all powers? It’s pretty egotistical but hey, that’s what villains are!
The Leader – Pick a villain to lead the squad.
Who says girls can’t be bad?! I love how Veronica Roth upheld feminine strength by creating female antagonists. Jeanine Matthews from the Divergent trilogy is definitely this person. What with her effective way of staring down people and manipulating them with her extremely persuasive words, a woman from Erudite should lead the squad.
The Killer Smile – Pick a villain who’s just extremely attractive
Ugh tough question! Movie and TV show marathons are my religion and thus, I have an extremely long list. To answer this, I’d have to go for Harry Osborn aka The New Goblin from Spiderman Series which was played by James Franco. He wears this slick, red-hot smile that totally sent Tobey Maguire off the road.
The Loose Canon – Pick a villain that marches to the beat of their own drum
This is basically every antagonist. Every villain is egotistic, at least at the peak of their vile career. One of the best candidates is President Snow from The Hunger Games. He didn’t bat an eye about the overworked and famished conditions of the districts as long as they suffice his and the Capitol’s selfish eccentricities.Sounds familiar? Don’t think hard. This setting is regrettably very much like the reality we’re living.
The Unhinged One – Pick a villain that isn’t playing with a full deck.
So here’s a smart ass who thinks himself so high and mighty when in fact he’s the total opposite: Joffrey Baratheon from Game of Thrones. Thinking before acting is an unfamiliar ground for this guy making everybody his adversaries. Either I’m reading too much PJ series or Joffrey is just literally a seaweed brain. Well, what do you expect from a product of an incestuous relationship, right?
The Redeemer – Pick a villain that’s on a path of redemption/would play both sides
This species is slowly in the progress of extinction I can think of only a few. I’m not sure if you guys are in agreement with me but Valentine Morgenstern fits this entry. He has a wicked mind plotting to purify the Shadow World but the way he yearns to unify his family, I’m not sure which side he’s on. That family-oriented moving suite he has though.
The Evil One – Pick a Villain That’s Just Bad to the Bone
Joffrey Baratheon is the most suitable answer for this but since he already took a spot on this book tag and I don’t want him to delight in showered attentions, I’ll go for Richie from Eleanor and Park. Seriously, how can Eleanor’s mom stand such a scoundrel who wallows in furnishing everyone with emotional hell?! If you haven’t read it yet and you’re that rare person seeking to raise his/her blood pressure, this book is for you.
The Once-Was-Good – Pick a villain that didn’t originally start out as a villain.
This has to be Shane Walsh from The Walking Dead. Whatever emotional investment I had for this character – being the guy who has to suffer from an unrequited love with Lori – got flushed down the drain by the second season as he … *zips mouth before blurting out any spoilers* That shaved head clearly held all the difference!
