100 Great Villains: Part IV by tylercoenrrea

My friend was arguing with me the other day about what he felt made a good villain. In his opinion, Alien was one of the best. Yes it is a great MONSTER, but what makes a great antagonist, is the human aspect. Sometimes this can be seen nonhuman characters but it’s the personality and the emotion that helps a villain shine. So because of that a few will be excluded: The Shark from Jaws, Hal from 2001: A Space Odyssey, Michael Myers, and anything that could represent a monster. This may be confusing and cause some debate ( I am keeping T-1000, he’s human enough) but it’s a great way to separate those that make us run in terror and those that makes us want to rethink our humanity.
