Yup, I had a chance to be evil for a day, and it was a lot of fun! While I was in Las Vegas, I attended a show at the Excalibur called Tournament of Kings. It’s the story of King Arthur and the Knights of the Roundtable and features jousting, swordplay, and a whole lot of action. All up close and live (particularly for me, since I was seated in the front row).
The sections for the audience were set up primarily by country, like Russia, Spain, and France. I was in the Dragon section, which rooted for the evil side. I didn’t pick that section, honest! It was where the ticketing person put me. But the Dragon was a great bad guy, and it was fun cheering him on.
We’ve all seen our share of fictional bad guys. Only a few stand out as being a character everyone enjoys, even though he does horrible things. What do you think makes a really enjoyable bad guy? Who’s your favorite bad guy?
