What are super villains?
Supervillains are frequently utilized as foils to create a formidable challenge to a superhero. In cases when the supervillain lacks superhuman, magical, or alien talents, he may have a brilliant brain or skill set that allows him to devise complicated plans or perform crimes that normal humans cannot.
They may also have a lust for power and the possession of substantial wealth to accomplish their goals. Many supervillains, like real-world dictators, gangsters, mad scientists and terrorists, have goals for world dominance or universal leadership.
