Dave I have always been a huge Ursula fan and this version of Queen Latifah photographed by Annie Liebovitz is simply amazing!
Thanks for the wonderful giveaway and being such a bright spot on Litsy 🖤

My family always called me Maleficent when I was being particularly evil (Molly: Maleficent; get it?) and she is just the best. Such an overreaction to not being invited to a party. I love it. #theworldneedsavillain

DaveGreen7777 Ahhh, Maleficent, she‘s definitely one of the classic villains! 😈 Awesome pick! Thanks for participating in my giveaway! 😊 6mo
Skyrimir Love Maleficent! Terrified me as a kid though. The only Disney villain I was scared of! 6mo
Molly_the_mezzo @DaveGreen7777 My extreme pleasure! 6mo
Molly_the_mezzo @Skyrimir Understandable! She‘s menacing! 6mo
DGRachel She‘s my absolute favorite Disney villain! 6mo

vivastory I'm curious to know who your favorite villains is 6mo
rretzler 💕Andrew Scott as Moriarty! 6mo
DaveGreen7777 @vivastory Good question! One of my early favorites was Iago from Shakespeare‘s “Othello”, as he was an early version of a villain who corrupted others just because he could! I also like The Joker for the whole dynamic of his existing to bring chaos to Batman‘s attempts at order. And Lanfear from the Wheel of Time series was great since she was so powerful, and her motivations were twisted yet still managed to be sympathetic as well. 6mo

DaveGreen7777 @rretzler I love his portrayal as Jim Moriarty! 😁 6mo
Branwen MUAHAHAHA! Erm...I'm not so good at producing an evil laugh I guess! 😂🤣 6mo
DaveGreen7777 @Branwen TEE HEE! Oh, wow, my evil laugh was WAY off! 😂 6mo
Branwen @DaveGreen7777 😂🤣👍 6mo
Molly_the_mezzo This is so hard! I love a good villain, and between books and films, there are so many great ones! 6mo
DaveGreen7777 @Molly_the_mezzo Yeah, I understand! That‘s why I set the giveaway up so people can post about any one of their favorites... picking an absolute favorite villain would just be too hard! 😱 6mo
Molly_the_mezzo @DaveGreen7777 It really would! 6mo

@DaveGreen7777 #theworldneedsavillain
I was gonna find some obscure villain or at least someone I haven‘t chosen before but honestly Snape is my OTL (one true love)
I fell in love with Snape when I watched the movies and then over again when I read the books. I know I did it wrong haha but without Snape we would be missing so much in the Wizarding World. He goes both ways (much like me ) is he villain or is he a hero? Chaotic Good?

DaveGreen7777 I love this picture, Rachel! 🖤🖤🖤 And I agree with you about Snape. Part of what makes him so fascinating to me is how he consistently teeters between hero and villain. His “The ends justify the means” approach makes it so that even if something good does come as a result of his actions, we still question the morality behind how he made it happen. 😱 Thanks for participating in my giveaway! 😊 6mo
Meaw_catlady @DaveGreen7777 I agree! Thanks for hosting the giveaway! And congratulations! 🖤 6mo
Branwen Omg this is so amazing! 😍 Now turn to page 394! 🐍💚 6mo
Meaw_catlady @Branwen thanks love!! 🖤🖤😂 6mo

The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes | Arthur Conan Doyle

Oh @DaveGreen7777 — how do I pick just one favorite villain?!? Here a just 4 of my faves. We can‘t have epic heroes with an equally epic adversary.

I would love to teach a course on the other side of the story. Assigned reading would be things like Wizard of Oz versus Wicked—who‘s the real “villain”? Because each one of the so-called villains has their own story. And one is never a villain in one‘s own story.


Macker11 I love that Ms. Trunchbull is an option. 6mo
DaveGreen7777 I love this post, Lynn! And I think that‘s a wonderful idea to compare stories from the villain‘s point of view. It would be interesting, since most villains actually see themselves as the hero (although probably not Jim Moriarty, I think he takes great pride in being a true villain)! Thanks for participating in the giveaway! 😊 6mo
wanderinglynn @Macker11 She‘s an awesome “villain”! 6mo

wanderinglynn @DaveGreen7777 In the most recent adaptation (with the awesome Andrew Scott as Moriarty), he claims to be more bored than anything. And it seems it‘s more ego that true villain—just trying to prove he‘s the smartest kid on the block. 6mo
wanderinglynn @DaveGreen7777 Also, I‘d love to bring out their backstories to know what happened that changed their path. Wicked and the newerish Maleficent movie have both sought to bring the backstories to light. 6mo
wanderinglynn @DaveGreen7777 I also didn‘t even start talking about all the comic villains I love, like Magneto. Talk about an awesome backstory that justifies his current actions. 6mo
DaveGreen7777 @wanderinglynn I so agree with you about Andrew Scott‘s portrayal, he‘s mesmerizing as Jim Moriarty! 😀 Interestingly enough, his Moriarty even acknowledged he was a villain, when he told Sherlock, “Every fairy tale needs a good old-fashioned villain”. 😈 6mo
DaveGreen7777 @wanderinglynn Also, Magneto is one of my favorite comic book villains because of his compelling backstory and motivation. Other villains may be in it for the power or the money, but Magneto really thinks he‘s a necessary evil, “Get the humans before they get us!” 😱 6mo
wanderinglynn @DaveGreen7777 That‘s right—he did say that. But do you really think he sees himself that way? Or was Moriarty playing on Sherlock‘s view of Sherlock as the hero? 6mo
wanderinglynn @DaveGreen7777 Magneto! 🙌🏻 6mo
DaveGreen7777 @wanderinglynn Hmmm... that‘s an excellent question about what Moriarty may have really meant! 🤔 Come to think of it, he may even have been referring to what he was about to do to Sherlock, turn public opinion against Sherlock by painting him out to be a fraud and the true villain! 😱 6mo
wanderinglynn @DaveGreen7777 See?!? Wouldn‘t this make an awesome college course? It would require critical thinking and seeing the other side of the coin. 😉 6mo
Michollio LOVE Andrew Scott as Moriarty. He has one of my favorite lines 6mo
wanderinglynn @Michollio He‘s fabulous. I mean the whole cast is great, but he really makes it. What‘s the line? 6mo
Michollio "And honey you should see me in a crown." 6mo
AbigailDays Backgrounds to all the famous villains would make awesome reading! Is there anything like a list of book pairs, like the Wizard of Oz and Wicked? 6mo
wanderinglynn @Michollio That is a most excellent line! 👍🏻 6mo
wanderinglynn @AbigailDays I don‘t know. That would be a good list to make if there isn‘t one. 👍🏻 6mo

@DaveGreen7777 is having a fun giveaway!!!

One of my favourite villians is Cersei from GoT. I love strong female characters ♀️✊🏼. She's a badass yet absolutely vile. You admire her, but you hate her guts and want her to die an agonizing death. It's complicated.

#TheWorldNeedsAVillain #giveaway

DaveGreen7777 Completely agree with you about Cersei! Her methods are ruthless, but she is so clever and formidable, it‘s hard not to admire her anyway! Thanks for participating in my giveaway! 😊 6mo
5feet.of.fury I remember an English teacher explaining that (we had an exercise to write the antagonist‘s side of the story). No one thinks they‘re the bad guy, even Hitler didn‘t think he was the bad guy. Multiple perspectives in novels definitely highlight that, you may not agree with the motivations or outcomes, but you can understand why they are acting the way they are. 6mo

#theworldneedsavillain @DaveGreen7777
This is my last entry for Dave's giveaway, I swear! I must really want the prize! 😁🤞ANYWAY. Cersei Lannister. Queen of the f*%@ing realm. She does awful, despicable things but...I love her anyway! There's just something about her that I can't help cheering for! And while, ultimately, Daenarys Targaryen is my favorite GoT character, I can't help secretly raising a glass of wine to salute my evil queen! 🦁💕

DaveGreen7777 Excellent choice, Becky! Cersei may be ruthless and devious, but she‘s just so good at playing the Game of Thrones, it‘s hard not to love her anyway! 😁 Her son, however, is much easier to hate! 😒 6mo
Branwen @DaveGreen7777 Omg, RIGHT?! Joffrey is the absolute worst! 😫 6mo

#theworldneedsavillain @DaveGreen7777

My second entry in this giveaway post! 😁 My other favorite literary villian is...Mara Jade from the Star Wars expanded universe. Despite turning to the path of good and eventually marrying Luke, Mara Jade STARTS her character journey by being the Emperor's right hand gal and carries out all his dirty work. I have always loved how strong and badass she is, even when she was a villian! 💕

DaveGreen7777 I don‘t care if Disney no longer considers her stories canon, Mara Jade is still real to me! 👍 Awesome villain pick, Becky, and I love this picture as well! 😍 6mo
Branwen @DaveGreen7777 Thanks, friend! 😁👍I totally agree, Mara Jade will always be canon to me-no matter what Disney says! 🤣 6mo
Meaw_catlady You look so cool!! Love this! 6mo
Branwen @Meaw_catlady Hahahaha! Thank you! I was trying my best to make a SERIOUS BUSINESS face! 🤣😂 6mo

My favorite literary villain is...Lanfear from Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. Why? A couple reasons! First of all, she's batshit crazy! All the things she does are laced with that unique craziness of hers. 😈 And also, I feel like she's a bit sympathetic of a character. You know everything she does originates back to one point-her love for the dragon reborn. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity Dave! 💕

DaveGreen7777 Excellent choice, Becky! 👏 Lanfear is such a great twisted villain, since in her mind she‘s doing everything out of “love”, even though her actions are anything but loving! 😱 She‘s easily my favorite of the Forsaken, although since I love crafty villains, Moghedien is a very close second! 🕷 6mo
Branwen @DaveGreen7777 I love Moggy so much too, it was hard to choose between the two of them! They're both such great villians! 😱 6mo

This was me trying to do an evil villain laugh... I don‘t think it translates well into a two dimensional photograph! 🤦🏻‍♂️

To celebrate reaching 5,000 Litfluence, I am doing a giveaway for a paperback version of one of my favorite books of all time. “Villains By Necessity” has been out of print for a long time, so it can be very hard to find a physical copy. The rules for the giveaway are in the comments below.

DaveGreen7777 1. Post about one of your favorite fictional villains, with a brief description of why you like that villain. Please be sure to tag me and use the hashtag #TheWorldNeedsAVillain, so I know it‘s for the giveaway. (edited) 6mo
DaveGreen7777 2. You can tag whatever book you want and use what ever image you want. The villain doesn‘t even necessarily have to be a literary one, if there‘s a movie or TV villain you want to use instead. (edited) 6mo
DaveGreen7777 3. Giveaway ends on August 1st. At that time, I‘ll pick my favorite post and will send the book to the giveaway winner. I‘ll incur all shipping costs. This giveaway is my way of thanking you all for all the kindness you‘ve shown me. Hope you all have fun with this giveaway! 😊 6mo
