misunderstood villains


Disney’s Beauty and the beast cast Is Gaston a villain or misunderstood?

I see him as the biggest villainous threat in any of the Disney films. He has no special powers. He’s not Jafar, or Ursula, or Maleficent. He’s a human being! He’s an arrogant, narcissistic, bigoted, chauvinistic, self-absorbed man who, once he’s told no, is driven by jealousy and revenge to fuel the fear of quite an idiotic group of villagers to go kill something they’ve never seen before. I mean, it resonates massively to what’s happening in the political climate throughout the world now. Luke Evans

ok so, i’ve seen a lot of people complain about Lotors design. They say it’s boring and not not up to the standards set with the other Galra and aliens, but i think i might know why. 

the only thing that really makes him look alien is his skin color and ear shape other then that he looks like a human. a paladan. actually more bland but still. 

he is (presumably) supposed to be the main villain of the show and if the old voltron is anything to go off, manipulative. i think he might use his human/altean look to manipulate them in one way or another, after all, half of the fandom already loves him, and the rest dosen’t like him at all (mostly at least.)

what i think is going to happen is that either he will go full on flamboyant villain mode, or tear the team apart one by one. or at least have some sort of plan like thing, maybe even be this misunderstood villain. maybe something about a backstory, maybe he’ll have some insecurities about his boring looks that can come into play

or it can hyave nothing to do with this but i’d like to think that his design is though tru and he’ll be a vilan that truely is something team voltron has to fight to overcome. I really just hope it’s anything but lazy design. 

i don’t really know, just thought i might share this ‘cuse why not. it’s mostly just word womit and me hoping he’ll be an interesting villan and not just a boring one. 

(sorry for any spelling mistakes btw idk it’s late)

Imagine being best friends with the avengers

Again I’m sorry I haven't done the other avengers I have been busy but I will get them done ASAP I hope its ok :)

Tony Stark

Being best friends with Tony is a thing people only dream about. Well not for you. Because for you it is a reality. You met each other at one of Tony`s fundraisers, for a multitude of children’s hospitals. He saw you, sitting alone at the food buffet, and your eyes met. He was the first to approach you, of corse. And you had a blast, and Tony insists that the both of you do  the whole thing again next week, cause he thinks that he as never met anyone as fun, entertaining, jolly and cool than you. The both of you sped the most of your time chillin in one of Tony`s many houses all over the world. Watching tony build and (fail) to test his new suit designs, drinks with himself and Bruce, going to parties, in the lab keeping him company or just something as simple as watching films with him cuddles up in bed. being best friends with Tony is swinging.

Steve Rogers 

Being best friends with Steve may seem boring to some people. Because some people only see him as a 90 year old senior. But you see him differently. You se him as cool and hip. You met each other while you were giving a tour at the Captain America exhibit, and he just listened how you spoke about him, and he loved it. You both of you went for a coffee afterwards to talk about yourself. And at the end of it, he said that you are a happy, awesome and nice person to be around. The two of you like to do thinks like listen to Steve tell stories about his days in The Howling Commandos, watch all the old fashioned Disney hand-drawn animation films, speaking of drawing, Steve teaching you to draw and having drawing competitions, or just having coffee in a café and letting the world pass you by. Being best friends with Steve is a complete wonder.

Natasha Romanoff

Being best friends with Natasha sound scary in theory. And absolutely terrifying in real life. Because of her being an assassin, avenger, spy and all round intimidating woman can put a lot of people off. You included. You met each other when you were a new recruit for the avengers. You met each other in a hall by complete chance, you tripped over and hit the ground, and fell to Natasha`s feet. Natasha saw your absent mindedness as strangely adorable. After that embarrassing event, you and her went to, the training room, to. Well, train. It isn’t what you had in mind, but you were too nervous to ask. After a few hours training. Natasha said that you had a cute, adorable quality about you and Natasha can relax and chill around you. Natasha and you like to spend time together training, cuddling on the couch, watching cheesy romantic comedies, finding out what happened in Budapest. Being best friends with Natasha is always thrilling.

Bucky Barnes

Being best friends with Bucky wouldn't not everyone’s cup of tea. But you knew it would be a adventure to say the least. You met each other in the strangest circumstances, you helped him escape from the police. You saw him being chased by them but you saw him and offended him a ride in your car, in which he was hesitant at first be he knew it was the best option, so he took your opportunity. After that he kept in touch with you, it was always by letter. But once he got use to you, you both went to watch a play in theatre. It was to see The Phantom of the Opera, he loves the Phantom being a misunderstood villain he likes the idea of. And Bucky just liked hanging out with you, you give him a sense of normality and after a long time, you make laugh, and give his life light. You and Bucky like to have challenges of arm wrestling, having dozens of nerf fights, sticking magnets on his arm, going to a well known restaurant in Brooklyn and a fair. Being best friends with Bucky would be happy.

Wanda Maximoff

Being best friends with Wanda is something that people would think to be awesome, and they were right. The both of you met when Wanda was just walking around in Central Park and she saw you about to fall over but she used her powers to save you, after that you just walked with her and started chatting, and you just hit it of. Wanda likes the way you think and your brilliant outlook on life. You and Wanda like to take long walks in the park, listen to music, listen to Wanda play the guitar and vice versa, reading books. Being best friends with Wanda is magical.                     

anonymous asked:

I really hope that Scorpio will be something like a "misunderstood villain/antihero" (seems to be evil/mean but isn't actually). As a Scorpio myself I would love her forever if she is! But even if she's not like that, I can't wait for you to reveal her!!

I might reveal her soon, I’m super excited to work on her! xD I hope I can finish all the concepts soon, since I can only think about their realms/tilesets when I have their concepts in mind! I’m all visual sometimes =((

Also, a lot of people are misunderstood by Virgo, she’s a tad crazy sometimes~ I’ll try to make her as accurate as possible! :3

The Joker not only manipulated, beat, and murdered a 15 year old boy; he also paralyzed and molested a bleeding Barbara Gordon which left her traumatized. He also mentally and physically abused Harley Quinn throughout their relationship. He has ZERO redeeming qualities nor is he “misunderstood”; he’s a sinister disturbed villain and I wish people would stop trying justify his actions?

Villain AU! Either both are villains or only one or the other is

Originally posted by cubisticking

I’m so glad there was a villain!AU gif I could use~♥ I’ll give some headcanons, or I guess concepts in this case, that I enjoy for this AU with one or both as villains. I’m pretty picky about my villain AUs because I like certain things, so I’m sorry if my headcanons wind up fairly…I dunno, mild? These won’t be scenarios like the first one, but flat-out ideas. Anyway, I hope you like them anyway!

1. In situations where Saitama is the villain, my favourite headcanon is that he’s not a villain on purpose. Either he used to be a hero for fun and, because he was unregistered, was mistaken and branded as a villain due to his activities, OR he was registered as a hero but, because the association realized his power and was scared of him, sabotaged him and marked him in a way that meant the entire world saw him as a threat. Those are my absolutely FAV~♥ Especially when it always causes such misunderstandings with hero!Genos, and leads to a sort of dance between the two to get to know each other; the epiphany Genos has in these types of villain AUs is the best part. I could read those kind of fics forever.

2. If Saitama is a villain because he wants to be, I don’t like the ultra violent version of his villainy, but more along the lines of a “this little shit” version that taunts the heros, fights them even (but with barely any of his strength, and no one gets irreversibly damaged), and doesn’t care so much for collateral damage or his public image. The kind of villain who has fun, and has every hero wanting him dead, but in the grand scheme of things has never killed anyone, not even by accident, and sometimes even saves the day, but is so hated that no one really notices that until they get a little closer to “Caped Darkness” than most people would. *coughGENOScough* Like, I read a small fic where hero!Genos discovers that Caped Darkness visited a children’s hospital on a frequent basis and I about died it was so sweet, and hilarious with how confused Genos was.

3. Now, if Genos is the villain, and Saitama the hero, I don’t see Genos as the type who would become a villain to taunt and harm other people, but because he will stop at absolutely nothing to find and maim the Mad Cyborg. He’ll break into government facilities, he’ll steal files or technology that’ll point him in the right direction and make him stronger, and he’ll fight and defeat other heroes if they stand in his way. Saitama would be the first to not try and stop him but, rather, ask him questions, badger him until he got answers out of the kid because, as much as other people tend to bore him, there’s something about Genos that doesn’t sit right with him. He’s not a BAD kid, per say, but a driven one, and Saitama just wants to know how this 19-year-old wound up one of the most sought-after villains in the HA’s database.

4. If they’re BOTH villains then there’s two scenarios I find interesting. The first one is they’re the terror of HA as a pair, and have attacked the HQ on many occasions, ruining their plans and just costing them money at any opportunity, because they were both heroes at one point and both spurred by the association. Saitama way before Genos, who sought out Caped Darkness to learn from him and team up, which Saitama reluctantly agreed to because the kid could cook and had cash. When they’re at home they’re domestic as fuck, and super chill, but once they put on their villain outfits and head out it’s all fun and games and shit-eating-grins. No one has ever been fatally wounded from their shenanigans, especially innocents since their beef is with the HA, but the heroes don’t really notice that when they keep getting their asses handed to them by a toaster with an emo fashion sense and an egg with eyeliner.

5. The second one is them as rival villains~! Saitama has never been seen in person as more than a black-caped blur, but is known as the biggest threat for his “attacks on the city” (which are really just him killing any monster he can get to before a hero can, thus invalidating them at every opportunity—if said monster lands on a building or two that’s not his problem), and Genos has been trying to do the same for months but can’t fucking get his hands on a monster before that blur shows up, wrecks the monster, and disappears from one heartbeat to the next. Genos is frustrated and angered beyond belief; how is he supposed to discredit the HA and its heroes if he can’t do anything? So it becomes a rivalry in Genos’ mind, and a challenge to find and identify the real Caped Darkness, and when he finally DOES manage it it’s…the most disappointing thing Genos has experienced in his life, even trumping his reason for hating the HA (which is them not believing his claims that Metal Knight killed his parents and is far from any hero- or so I headcanon in this case, anyway).

And that’s because Caped Darkness is just…a regular guy, with poor cleaning habits and a tiny apartment, and is only killing the monsters “for fun” and not for any self-righteous reason. Out of spite Genos convinces the obviously reluctant villain to let him move in and ‘learn from him’ (aka monitor where he is and what he’s doing at all times so HE can kill the monsters before Saitama for once), and as time passes Saitama starts enjoying the company, while Genos actually winds up learning a lot from Saitama without meaning to and, in the end, they both take down Metal Knight together because fuck that guy.

(And that’s it! Sorry this is more ideas rather than actual headcanons, but since this AU could be a handful of things I went with ideas to narrow down my answers. Hope that’s okay!)

The signs as my favourite types of characters found in anime

Aries: The one with the tragic backstory that made them determined to exact revenge that you always, always root for

Taurus: The ball of sunshine and happiness that you consider your best friend even though they’re a fictional character

Gemini: Yandere-chan

Cancer: The precious cinnamon roll sugar cake baby juice that dies tragically and makes you cry

Leo: The Hottie McThottie that can just take. your. body.

Virgo: That one guy that all the fans hate but nobody knows why exactly

Libra: The ‘I did nothing wrong’ enthusiast

Scorpio: The painfully dark character that lives in the shadows who you desperately ship with happiness and a good future

Sagittarius: The misunderstood villain with radical political/moral ideals

Capricorn: The cold, brooding badass that is apparently indifferent to human emotion but you love them anyway

Aquarius: The character you misjudged with hate but begin to love when their backstory and motives are revealed

Pisces: The hero that started off like a lil bitch but due to circumstance became strong and wise beyond their years

I SO BADLY want Once Upon a Time in Wonderland to come out on Bluray. Or at least on DVD.

OUATIW was honestly, especially in its last five episodes, the best TV I’ve ever seen. It was such an underrated and under-appreciated gem, and to this day I’m saddened by how much it’s been swept under the rug.

All of its main characters were great, and despite the show only running for 13 episodes, each character got an astounding amount of depth and development. Anastasia, in particular, was an amazingly deep character that I couldn’t help but love and root for, and her relationship with Will is one of the more realistic and touching television relationships out there. As Will puts it, true love is messy sometimes, you argue and you hate each other sometimes and you wonder if it’s even worth it, but it is worth it and you always end up forgiving each other.

And Jafar… dear god, Jafar. What a perfect freaking villain. He had tragic beginnings and you can’t help but feel sorry for him, yes, but that tragic past in NO way excuses his actions or redeems him. So many things lately - including OUAT proper - have this nasty habit of making their villains these misunderstood loners who have good intentions despite their questionable ways. Not Jafar. He’s an asshole, he’s a sociopath, and he’s not apologizing for anything. His tragic past informs the monster he became, but it doesn’t excuse it. And that’s definitely the best kind of villain, and as a huge fan of the Disney animated film Aladdin, I love how true they stayed to his character despite the alterations to his backstory. As a lifelong fan of Jafar, I wouldn’t have had his character any other way. Truly.

I’m not even sure why I’m typing this. Everyone reading this either doesn’t give a shit about OUATIW, or they’re huge fans of OUATIW like me who are all like “Yep, we know all this already”. But here I am, typing it anyway. Because OUATIW is so ignored and so unappreciated that someone needs to be saying these things publicly. Someone needs to at least try to get ABC’s attention and make them realize how badly some of us need our favorite show on Bluray/DVD.

The show didn’t get a lot of live views… but that does not mean it was a bad show. ABC put it on Thursday nights, in the same time slot as some of the biggest and most popular shows on television. A super competitive time slot that almost guaranteed the death of any show you threw in there. And because of that mistake, the greatest show I’ve seen in a long time is getting thrown aside and ignored and that really is a shame.

I would love to see more of Jafar, Anastasia, the Jabberwocky, even Alice and Cyrus on OUAT… but given how the writers handled Will’s return in season 4, and given how big-name actors like Naveen Andrews unfortunately probably want nothing to do with their characters anymore, I highly doubt we ever will see more of them.

I miss you, OUATIW. </3

(Tagging @onceabc and @ouatwonderland in the very off chance that anyone at ABC actually cares)
