And the Survey Says ... #OpenBook Blog Hop
Those of you that follow my blog know that I posted a survey last week. You also probably know that I got next to no responses. (Thanks, TKDanny, for being the exception!) So, I posted one of the questions on Facebook, and got a a few responses.
How do you like your villains?
1. Pure evil
2. Bad but redeemable
3. Fighting for a cause you don't believe in
And the survey says ...!
A few people couldn't narrow down their choice to only one answer. I counted both of their responses, The final results surprised me.
Four people like their villains pure evil. Think Snidely Whiplash from the cartoon series Rocky and Bullwinkle. Granted, he wasn't a very smart villain, but I don't remember him every doing anything nice.
Another four people chose bad but redeemable. Think Dirty Dancing and Grease. Even Fonzie in Happy Days carried the bad boy vibe although he wasn't actually bad. (And Jessica Rabbit wasn't bad, she was just drawn that way.) Although I haven't read or watched the Fifty Shades series, I suspect Christian Grey fits in this category.
Last but not least. three people picked fighting for a cause. There are plenty of stories in history to look at for these characters. Abraham Lincoln was a hero to many and a villain to others. Same with George Washington and Che Guevara. It all depends upon which side you were on.
Feel free to tell me about your favorite villain in the comments. And now I'm off to find out the results of the other authors' polls.
