Seriously, most villains from any type of media have some interest in taking over the world. Sure, some of them just want to recreate it in their own image, unable to stomach the world they live in, but I’m talking about the ones that simply want to rule it, for no reason other than being on top.
But think about it. Why would anyone want that kind of responsibility?
It seems like a big enough pain to run a country, let alone a population consisting of billions of people. Is it really all that exciting to rule over all of them? And of course, as villains, they rule with an iron fist, using fear to control everyone.
But why do they need to control everyone? Just so they can have their way for everything and do whatever they want? What a bunch of spoiled, selfish brats! And honestly, they can do this anyway. Villains usually rise to power because they have power and ability the rest of the world can’t possibly compete with. So they can do whatever they want anyway. No one would be able to stop them. Why piss off billions of people and make enemies out of them all?
Think about it. If villains didn’t make a global stink, no hero would ever turn up to stop them, or even if they succeeded in taking over the world, revolution would always be on the minds of the people. So the newfound leader will always be under some kind of threat, just as those ruled are.
And honestly, villains, why would you want the stress of ruling the world? Or is it all just about sitting on a throne in front of the whole world? Are villains really all that egotistical? That’s gotta be why. If they wanted money, or some kind of rare item, they could effortlessly steal it, or win it in some kind of fighting tournament, like UFC or frickin’ boxing! Why go through all the trouble of taking over the world, usually through means of an absurdly complicated plan that sometimes could take years or even decades to complete.
So it must be power they want. But not the individual power they already possess. No, that’s not enough. They want power over people, just so they can rub it in their faces, and the villain can say “I’m better than you, and if you don’t agree, I’ll kill you!”
Wow, so deep down, that’s the motivation behind most villains. A huge ego, a need to showoff, and a lack of love. I suppose if their parents treated these folks better, they would never become villains.
How lame, both villains, and their parents.
How about you? Would you be interested in global domination?
