Wanna grab the other months? Here’s all 12 for you!
Included are Fisherman, Hypno-Hustler, and Kite-Man!
Charles Brown was a two-bit hood who devised a way to escape from the sites of his many petty thefts: fly away on a kite strapped to his back. It should be noted that he thought this idea to be better than possibly flying a small plane or developing some rocket boots or figuring out a way to move really fast underground. Nope. A kite was his first choice.
Some villains are just crazy, of course, and part
of their goal is some sort of cruel dystopia. (Darkseid, I’m looking at
you, sir.) That’s not what we’re talking about here. But even the best
leaders in world history have often been more than a bit
self-aggrandizing, and some of the bad guys have run fairly good
civilizations. (Granted, this is a little like saying Nixon was a
great president because he was good at Chinese foreign relations…but
stick with me.)
So who are the villains who could lead not just
a nation, but quite possibly a world–or more? Here are six
candidates–and for your safety, there will be no debates, because
hoo-boy, would that be asking for trouble.
