All right, I’ve accepted it. I’ll never be as good as Joss Whedon. Not even in the same creative universe, in fact. But while I may never be a media darling, I can still create and use my God-given talents for good. Having said that, there are some days when being a villain is much more appealing than being a hero.
Let’s face it, even the best of us have days they would like to embrace their inner villain.
Or when your boss disseminates in five minutes your project you spent three hours, weeks, months, fill in the blank, working your heart out over. One of those imploding bombs from Thor: The Dark Planet would be great right about now.
How about when your spouse ignores the full dishwasher for two days while you wait to see if he/she is going to do anything about it while you do everything else? (at least that’s how it feels.) Remember the hand thingie in Stargate that Ra used to punish underlings with pain and/or death? Oh, yeah. It’s on my Christmas list.
There are days and times when being a good person (or hero) is great. In fact, most of the time. But sometimes…world domination could be fun.
