Sample text

Next, Male Villain #7 – The OUTCAST MALE VILLAIN #7 – The OUTCAST The OUTCAST: the lonely outsider, he wants desperately to belong. Tortured and unforgiving, he has been set off from others, and usually for good cause. He craves redemption, but is willing to gain it by sacrificing others. Waste no sympathy on him - he’ll have none for you. The OUTCAST villain is that poor soul who lives on the fringes – fringes of society, fringes of the neighborhood, fringes of the workplace. In mysteries from the 30’s, the various suspects always put forth the OUTCAST as the villain – the hermit who keeps to himself, or the murderous tramp who wandered into the otherwise happy home to kill the rich lord who just happened to be about to change his will.

Don’t let him pull your strings – the game is always rigged in his favor. This villain, the dark version of the PROFESSOR, was almost the “Mad Scientist,” because, of course, that is one common example of this kind of villain. A particular favorite of the comic book crowd, the Evil Genius is nevertheless found in all kinds of fiction. And AFI’s number one villain – Hannibal Lector – falls into this archetypal family. The EVIL GENIUS probably is, literally, a genius, or at the very least he thinks he is.

Of course, the reverse (making a boy live as a girl) could well lead to the same sort of personality. Heroic characters like redeeming OUTCASTS. So if you want a story where all ends well, consider this example: Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer, with his dentist friends, turns the vicious Abominable Snowman into a helpful hand around the toyshop. Another example – The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. And a not so cute example? Travis Bickle, from Taxi Driver. One more male villain to go – male villain #8.
