Does the life of a villain seem attractive to you?

In the comments of my previous blog, I noticed that a lot of people said that they would become supervillains or at least anti-heroes and mercenaries instead of a superhero. So I'm asking this: Is the life of a supervillain better that the life of a superhero? Do you people think that it has more advantages? What is your opinion?

I would never be a villain on my own will. That's just me though.There are advantages and disadvantages for both though.

Would rather be an anti-hero. Villains always lose.

Good point.

Maybe most villains lose in the long run, but they get a lot accomplished during their time. Usually, they win the battle, but not the war.

Anti-Villian or Anti-Heroe, i dont see life in Dark Side and Ligth Side only, for the same i could never be a Heroe or a Villian.

I totally would 
I'm jsut waiting for someone to don a mask and become a vigilante hero for real 
.....so that I can oppose him.......

Lets see, the advantages of being a villain include: everybody hating you, jail time or death if you mess up, and wealth/power that you could have gotten legally if you really were a genius or talented. That, and you get the pleasure of hurting people if you're a sadist.  
 
So no, I don't find it appealing personally.

@Shadowdoggy:
There is a bunch of guys, they call themselve Rel Life Superheroes, there is evn forumd, where they say the god thing they do in real life.

@DeathpooltheT1000:
yeah, I've seen them online before 
but they seem like nice guys 
I couldn't try to oppose nice people doign good things 
but some self-righteous a-hole who thinks he's above the law........I'd put him in a giant hourglass, I would

I could do it, I could become a villain, all I need to do is accumulate a vast amount of power, cast my humanity aside and... 

...totally OWN a super-hero in combat. It's really not all that difficult once you set your mind to it.

@Shadowdoggy:
Then you dont want to join my Supervillian Squad?
Yeah, at least some of the heroes, actually do some change, most of people only car that no ones does something and when some one does, they tell him he is insane.

yeah .

Cast aside all ties to your humanity? Dominate and destory everything that stands in the way of your ambition? Speak in third person and frequently quote Sun Tzu? Hell yeah, I'd be a villain.

Or better talk like Venom, We hatea SPYDEERMEAN, PITIER PARRRKER BRING MEH MOAR PICTURES.

Doom level yes, having my ass handed to me by a brightly coloured costumed teenager every week like say Shocker for instance, no thanks.

Sure why not

Not all bad guys are bad.. Magneto is not a bad guy is just that people see him this way. But all Magneto wanted was to be able to go to walt-mart without having people pointing at him. is that such a crime? 

Posted by The Mango

Depends, is Taskmaster a villain?

Posted by DeathpooltheT1000
@Yaujtapool: What about being kissed and girl deont run away from you?
@G'bandit: Bad guys are bad, thats why they are bad guys, some are more bad that others.

Norman Osborn's life did(Pre-Siege). He had a lot of political power.

Certainly more than that of a superhero(in fact, I pretty much only read comics for the villains' interaction with the heroes, or for anti-heroes).

its only attractive if im an A-list villain, if i was c-list like paste pot pete, or stilt man i'd rather be a hero. and if i was an A-list villain say goodbye to north america and hello To west Gerchinahstan

Posted by G'bandit
@DeathpooltheT1000: No, is all matter of perspective. To me Magneto is a victim. A victim of persecution and injustice. Forced to extreme messures in order to bring piece to his fellow mutants. 
 

 What a true hero :D


Edited by DeathpooltheT1000
@G'bandit: Magneto is a antivillian, that is likew the anitheroes, but only that they are villians
@Yaujtapool:
Still he cant kiss them.

Yes for me.  A life that seems exciting and dangerous is nice because it is a life that we can't live because of laws.

There cannot be evil without good so in fear that I would be maimed or severely injured..possibly even die.No! If I was a villain..there WOULD be a hero.

cool
Posted by WhitOro

In the real world being a Supervillain would be much more easy and remunerative than being an hero, that’s for sure.

Also, in the real world Supervillains would never lose.

Yeah, I’m a bit pessimistic, that’s true...

Talking about comics, being a supervillain is cool only if you are on the level of Doom-Darkseid-Brainiac, people that people fear and have enough powers to keep their positions.

On the other hand, if you are someone like Dr. Light (pre-Identity Crisi), life really suck...

A lot ^.^

About as attractive as death. :P

Posted by intothetempest

It's actually quite cool. Being able to kill in order to get your way without fear of retribution because of your skill does sound quite attractive. Sure, people may dislike you, but you'd be famous, and no one would really know who you are during the day. And the advantage of having what you want when you want it is pretty cool, although i'd probably be more like ra's al ghul, someone who doesn't care about justifying the means in order to gain the ends. So yes, in a dark, twisted way it is quite a cool thing. Although being a hero is equally attractive for other reasons

I'd Want to Be an Anti-Villain, like Magneto or Ol' Doc Doom... Most Heroes willl Be with Ya, and the villains won't have a Motive to go after ya.
Edited by Hi I'm New

If I suddenly popped up in either the Marvel or DC universes and had super-powers I would most definitely become a super-hero. However if I suddenly acquired powers right this moment, I would either decide to work for the army or try to be a hero. My biggest problem would be the temptation to become a villain because I would have all this power and not a single person on the planet could stop me. If I ever did become a villain however, I'd like to think I would eventually find my way back to the side of the good.

I would be a crimaminal master mind  with a 12th level inteligence !

A villain like Doom? No thanks. A villain like the Rogues? Absolutely.
