I would like to touch on just a few of my favorite bad souls of film, books and manga. Let me begin with Batman, not The Dark Knight, but Batman. In this 80’s-rific version of Batman, Jack Nicholson plays The Joker. Now I am not saying Heath Leger did a bad job; the two different portrayals of The Joker were both amazing in their own respects. He had the laugh, the smile (of course), and the confidence to make him cool.
In literature I think I will choose Professor Snape from Harry Potter. He was so freaking cool. He jumped sides in the book series about a gazillion times, but in the end he was good. So much so that Harry named his kid after him. Even his back story was awesome! He was a master of potions and probably the second smartest character in the series. If it wasn’t for him, then I am willing to bet that not so many readers would have liked the series so much. So let me recap with Snape: he had the evil grin and he had to be insane to go be a secret agent amongst Lord Voldomort’s ranks.
Not many people know the last character, but I am going to ramble about him. His name is Sasuke from the Manga Naruto. He is a character shrouded in darkness. His entire family was murdered by the older brother that he loved. He is confident and swift and still believes that his only purpose is to get revenge on those that caused the death of his family and clan. He is looked up to by all because of his success, looks, and ability, but he has hatred in him that darkens his heart. I believe that he will eventually destroy himself just as Tom did. The similarities between Tom and Sasuke are a little uncanny. If you would like to read the Manga Naruto then click here.
