The men have hated him for 1000 years because they blame him for their deaths. Will Goliath be able to resist their illusions? He’ll have to act fast; if he doesn’t, he’ll be a ghost instead.

Understanding the Demon’s Head, Ra’s Al Ghul

ras al ghul comic cover batman

We wrap up independence/dystopia month with a look at one of the villain greats: Ra’s al Ghul. He’s one of my favorite Batman villains, and not just because he can keep the Dark Knight shirtless for long periods. His intellect, skills, and longevity make him one of the most independent villains around. He manipulates people and circumstances to suit his ends. He runs his own secret society. He’s practically immortal. He goes toe to toe with the Batman. Why? All to free nature from man’s destruction and to free man from its addiction to technology.

But what really makes him independent? What makes anyone independent? Hint: it’s not unlimited data or mounds of money, though Ra’s has both.

Like all villains, they’re among the most interesting characters of the series! Ready to pay them a visit and see what they have to teach us?

Sins of the fathers = demons of the villains

Darth Vader Star Wars image

It’s 2 days after Father’s Day, but that’s close enough to unleash the demons in the time-honored tradition of harping on dads! A theme among many villains and antagonist is “daddy issues.” Demons springing from the actions or inaction of a father drive the antagonist to A.) become the villain they are today or B.) become a worse villain.

That said, there are actually villains and antagonists who are very good fathers. We’ll look at both types of villains here.
