Villains Don’t Feel Evil


I had a conversation the other day about one of my favorite twists on the superhero formula: organized, professional villainy. The heroes and their archnemeses both have the genre-savviness to realize that they’re dancing, not fighting — leading and following, not winning and losing. So, they each form their own trade association and establish some clear rules of engagement. Since everyone’s got work to do, why not have a little professionalism?
