Evil for a Day

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?
