MBTI: ASM2’s Harry Osborne- INFP

I found one! Look guys! Over here! I found an INFP villain!

In my MBTI: Villains article, I hated that I had to leave our NF buddies out of the fun. It’s not that there aren’t any NF villains, it’s just so rare. Cue annoyed emails that I’m wrong about half my villains and that many are actually INFJ (Holy crap I got one as I typed this sentence) or INFP. The genres I’m mostly familiar with contain so few and many that are typed as that just ain’t right.

But now that I’ve searched through the anal cavity of my mind, I’ve actually got a real, live, fictional villain. And thy name is Harry. Continue reading

MBTI: SMAUG- INTJ

Though there are more powerful enemies in Tolkien’s middle-earth, there aren’t as many that are as powerful and evil. Summing him up, Smaug is a guy of simple tastes. But considering the atrocities he commits for a new home and treasure he isn’t going to spend, his taste requires a lot of destruction and murder.

While the INTJ you know isn’t going to be pure evil, the negative side of one may invoke a sort of cynical lethargy. Or lethargic cynicism, your choice. Refusing to contribute past some scathingly incisive negativity, the darker side of an INTJ can be one that the few who experience it are left with a permanently bad taste in their mouth.

Again, they’re not all like this. Continue reading

Some Minor Spoilers May Apply!

As much as we love our heroes, as seen in MBTI: The Types (of Types) of Heroes, where we examine the kind of heroes each type are in fiction, the villains are what makes their exploits so intriguing to watch. How can you have a phoenix to rise if he doesn’t burn first? C’mon.

And before you press on, understand that while we may sympathize with many villains, it’s their actions that make them such, regardless of how complex they may be. Continue reading

Spider-Man Villains to Look Out For

Posted in Whatever with tags , , , , , , , , , on 04/16/2014 by McCutcheon

A couple years ago, I wrote an article with a hint of wishful thinking masked by quiet skepticism. I was weak.

In it, I gave a quick rundown of a few villains that didn’t seem like likely candidates for the antagonists of The Amazing Spider-Man movies, seeing as how the writers normally gravitated toward the human and the scientific. I didn’t say realistic, I said scientific, okay?

But since the Avengers films, all bets are off and the ridiculous and ‘out-there’ is becoming the standard. With next month’s Amazing Spider-Man 2 hitting theaters, we’ll be seeing another Goblin, Electro, and the Rhino. And from there, the sky’s the limit it seems.

Here’s a quick list for those looking to familiarize themselves, even if they don’t make it into a Sinister Six movie. Continue reading

MBTI: NF Villains and Other Miscreants

Sure, they’re out there. There have been a few on here. But for the few that can be named, there’s a nine out of ten chance that whatever villain whose presence you’re enjoying isn’t a good ol’ Idealist.

The answer seems obvious enough given that on average, your “run-of-the-mill” Idealist loves people and just wants a big ol’ hug, blah blah blah…But not every Rational wants to poison the city’s water supply nor every Artisan want to rob, rape and kill- so where are the NF villains?

MBTI: Hollywood’s Killers

I love October. It starts getting cold, things start dying, and Halloween comes in right at the end to top everything off. It’s also the one time of the year I’m tempted to sit in front of my TV for hours because certain channels show a hundred Horror movies I might otherwise not get the chance to see.

I’ve done the article typing a few of film’s favorite madmen, but how are types specifically represented in Horror? Some usually have a bigger role than others but everybody’s got their place. And everybody dies at some point. In real life of course, but definitely in the movies. And definitely real life too. Continue reading

MBTI: -NTJs Are Always Villains

vil1

It’s brought up on forums, it’s talked about between those who are interested in MBTI, and it’s right there, between the lines of type description. It’s only natural that fictional villains would lean toward the -NTJ types.

Is it the power they desire? The control of others? The will for total freedom?

Yes, yes, and yes. Continue reading

Unsung Horror Villains

Posted in Whatever with tags , , , , , , on 10/04/2012 by McCutcheon

This loser’s usually hogging all the spotlight.

It’s tough being a villain in a Horror movie these days. If you’re not a dead Japanese girl standing in your soaking wet jammie jams, nobody seems to take you seriously anymore. Back when, it used to be guys who liked killing stupid teenagers in unthinkably violent acts(Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Halloween). Occasionally we’ll get the genius who uses his powers to set up traps or create master plans that their person of interest falls into but that’s rare(The Saw series, The Collector).

Then there are the guys who, it doesn’t matter the era, just don’t get any respect. Many times they’re more distinct and maybe even likable enough that they might not be thought of as a villain in the traditional sense, but when it comes down to it, they definitely ain’t good no matter their intention.

Below are a few of the guys who just don’t get enough respect in their genre or anywhere else, for that matter. Continue reading

MBTI: Batman and Company

If you read my Myers Briggs post correlating movies to their respective type, you know I’m a fan of MBTI. And seeing as how Dark Knight Rises was as great as we wanted it to be, I still feel the need to write about all things pertaining to it. Below are a list of characters, primarily villains, who fit into the MBTI types. One thing that’s so fun about Batman’s villains are the fact that each one is a different aspect of his personality. There’s a whole science to him, look it up.

Once again, if you have an interest in Myers Briggs, here’s a link. Last Batman post for a while I think. I’ve got a life, I swear.

Okay fine, I don’t.

Five Movie Characters That Needed a Punch in the Face

Posted in Top 5 Lists with tags , , , , , , on 06/26/2012 by McCutcheon

Ever wanted to punch someone in the face? Course you have. Many of you no doubt have done this already. While I don’t directly condone violence, sometimes you just need it to get the job done. Self-defense counts as violence, as we all know and protecting your loved ones is a given. And while I’m not encouraging these particular celebrities in the following article to be assaulted, some characters they played sure could have benefited from it.

I don’t necessarily mean just villains either. The Joker is a villain, but he’s likable. Rattlesnake Jake is cool, and Megatron has got too much going for him as an antagonist that a punch in the face is beyond him. Unless it’s from Optimus Prime.

I’m talking about characters that just make you so mad as you’re watching the movie that you want to reach through the screen and strangle them, regardless of whether or not it’s a cartoon, a child, etc., etc….

I’m not saying it would have fixed everything. Many of these characters need something worse and by the end, might actually get it. But that doesn’t mean a punch wouldn’t have made me feel better during the times they were being such jackasses. Continue reading
