Movie/Comic book villain quotes

1: The Joker Madness, as you know, is a lot like gravity. All it takes is a little push
2: Loki Is not this simpler? Is this not your natural state? It's the unspoken truth of humanity,
that you crave subjugation. The bright lure of freedom diminishes your life's joy in a mad scramble
for power, for identity. You were made to be ruled. In the end, you will always kneel.
3: Harley Quinn YOU'RE WRONG! MY PUDDIN' DOES LOVE ME! HE DOES! You're the
problem! And now you're gonna die and make everything right!
4: Sauron You cannot hide. I see you. There is no life in the void. Only death.
5: Darth Vader You underestimate the power of the Dark Side. If you will not fight, then you will
meet your destiny.
Each of these characters have the typical intentions of an antagonist, e.g. to destroy or prevent
the protagonist from achieving their goal which usually involves saving the world. However, what I
like about each of these villains is that they all have their own specific, personal motives which
gives their villainous plots and schemes a certain signature, making them unique. For example,
DCs Harley Quinn tackles issues such as abuse and mental health as well as being a strong
female villain. She falls in love with the Joker and together they create chaos throughout Gotham,
creating juxtaposition as their characters are always light and bubbly (mimicking that of a circus
clown) however they are inflicting pain and suffering on innocent people, giving their characters a
sick sense of humour. Later on within the narrative, Harley begins to realise how abusive the
Joker is to her, both physically and mentally and her focus is then turned towards destroying him
rather than being a nuisance to the Gotham police department. This creates an epic battle
between two of the most unlikely enemies who are equal in terms of villainy and hatred. The
scenario is similar in Lokis case as he starts out as Thors brother and closest ally, however after
finding out that he is adopted and has no birth-right to the throne of Asgard, he turns against his

1 Jack Whitehall: "I'm posh but I dont take any stick for it. It's like I always say, sticks
and stones may break my bones but f--- it, I'm with Bupa."
2 Noel Fielding: Yeah? Rock 'n' Roll is fast, you know. If all goes according to plan I could
be in rehab next Thursday. Tuesday week I'll be living on an island with a small Indian boy

dont want to. Then she made me eat broccoli, which felt like double standards

Tim Burton characters

1 Victor Van Dort (Corpse Bride): A troubled young man betrothed to a shy aristocratic
woman who, when practicing his wedding vows, accidentally marries a corpse of a young
woman who was murdered by her previous fianc.
2 The Hatter (Alice in Wonderland): The Hatter is known for being sociable in holding tea
parties for his friends in Underland. However, when meeting Alice for a second time, he puts
his life on the line to help her find herself and overrule the rule of the red queen.
3 Barnabas Collins (Dark Shadows): A 200 year old vampire wakes up in 1972 after being
locked away by a witch who still holds a grudge. He finds his family and helps to win back
their fortune whilst seeking his revenge on the witch who entrapped him and falling in love.
4 Edward (Edward Scissorhands): A young man is created by an inventor in his own
laboratory and is taught to be human, however the inventor dies before he can finish Edward,
leaving him with only scissors for hands. Edward is found and learns the hard way about life
in the real world, falling in love and sacrificing a lot along the way
5 Emily (Corpse Bride): After being murdered by her fianc, Emily is awoken when a young
man named Victor accidentally takes her hand in marriage. After learning that it is all a
mistake and that he is betrothed to someone else, she is upset and distraught as it is the
second time shes been left at the altar. However, she sees how Victor feels for his betrothed
and helps them get reunited and married. After restoring Victors happiness, she feels at peace
and is therefore free to rest in peace.

I like each of these characters because they do not follow conventional storylines and some of
them do not meet a happy, perfect ending like most movie characters do. However they each
do what they believe is right, whether thats for their friends, family, or even for someone that
they love. I like the fact that they each instil different morals and that its ok not to be ok.
