View Full Version : Diana Hignutt, Super Villain

I have had a recent change of heart, and have therefore decided to cast aside the last vestages of goodness out of my soul and embrace the path of darkness. When I do things, I do them big. So, my only choice was to become a Super Villain. I have come to understand that the ingrained corrupt political system can not be changed in a meaningful way, our self-centered capitalistic life-styles (that I myself enjoy) will be protected by all who enjoy them and are unlikely to change. And even, if we managed to remove corruption from the system, it will only be a short-lived victory: people will figure out how to game the new system shortly enough. As Rob pointed out to me in another thread, history has demonstrated this.

And, so I am working on being a Super Villain. Note, that I'll be the new kind of super villain. I will still be non-violent, and I plan of breaking no laws. I will simply game the system to my advantage, and make largely annoying internet posts (see my Santa Fraud thread for an example of my new found villainy). Obviously, I have evil plans to make and such.

I do need your help, though, dearest friends. I need a good solid super villain name. Now, my friends as the Traditional Values Coalition dubbed me the Transgender Occultist, but it's kind of limiting. Anyone have any better evil super villainy names? Any good super villainy schemes? anyone want to be a henchman?

What would the value of a super villain be to the world? If I became I really serious super villain, maybe the world would unite against me? But you all would still be my friends, right?

How do you plan to out-villain Dick Cheney? ;)

You'll need a remote castle, some missiles of some description, and an optional white cat. But once you've sucked all the world's resources in to your sticky paws you'll have no problem with that. Your name should be something that sounds innocuous but would strike fear in to all those who hear it. How about something like... THE LEADER. Ooooh.

I'll still be your friend because you'll probably have really good parties and enslave Muse to be your personal musicians. :D

All the truly Super Villains were interested in bringing the entire world down to the lowest common denominator, to bring the Superpowers down to the level of 3rd world countries...granted, they usually wanted to make a lot of money for themselves in the process. Use these as your guiding principles, to generate your mission statement and such.

I'd go with just "The Nutt" for your villain name myself. Think of the merchandising possibilities...The Nutt House for your secret lair of doom, the Nutt Cracker for your first major weapon of mass destruction. Just as examples... ;)

Oh, and don't forget that you'll need an arch-nemesis...and sorry, Captain Hammer is already taken. :D

Do consider what your costume will look like when you're thinking about a name.

I mean, Super-Villians have to have really COOL costumes. And your name may have some impact.

Just take the advice from The Incredibles: "No capes, dahling."

Capes can be dangerous. <G>

Could you have minions? I've always wanted to be a minion. Minionite? Part of a minion? I'm sure I'd be good at it :D

And you need really cool boots. Bad guys always get the best boots!

I think capes are safe for villains. If I can't have a cape, I'm not sure I want to do this...

But, good point about the the relationship between the name and costume, I guess they have to be united by a theme. Hmm.

This worries me. Well, concerned is more like it.

Mostly that Backslashbaby wants to be just a "part of a minion". I'm not sure if she had a specific part in mind, or if she was interested in being the key element in some kind of Transformer Minion. (OK, that would be pretty cool.) :)

I'll be taking applications and resumes for minions, henchmen, sinister associates, and possibly evil wards...

And, I love boots, evil rocks!

I'm not sure about the status of all your anatomy, so this may be inaccurate, but "Schlong-Woman" has a nice TG ring to it.

No evil geniuses or scientists of questionable ethics? However will you acquire all the cool villain toys without them?

Though, I am an evil genius myself, I don't have a good science background, good point. Yes, I'll be accepting applications for evil geniuseses and scientistsess of questionable ethics. I do need cool evil toys, that's for sure.

Fascinating. You're taking a page from the book of Martin Luther King, the page about non-violent protest for social change. But then your secret is to do as best you can to not be recognized as a troll protester, just being an "ordinary citizen Just Like You, disturbed at what I see going on in this Great Country, and THAT is my sole reason for running for office..."

I'm once again reminded of that SF novel "Wasp."

I almost got cranked up by the Santa Claus thread. My parents (and my big brother was in on one incident, he's only two years older than me) lied to me about Santa Claus, and it was indeed a negative experience. But then I realized the damage of that lie was actually quite small compared to everything else that went on, so much in fact that Santa ended up being lost in the noise (I don't remember a specific moment when I realized 100 percent that Santa Claus doesn't exist). (well, I DID get worked up, but as I imply it was only indirectly, and had little to do with Santa - gotta write that memoir)

But enough about me ... Onward and Downward:

I can't think of a good SuperVillain Name offhand, but continuing with the Nutt theme someone else mentioned, your supporters (both of us!) will be called, in full conspiracy-theory fashion, HigNutters. :)

I see a slight problem, a serious flaw with these traditional SuperVillain plans. These Villains apparently want all this money to buy the latest toys, the iPod, iPhone and that new Apple tablet screen to watch movies on or whatever. If they succeed in destroying all the good things we know as Capitalism and The American Way, who will be left to make these toys? Even if they existed, they won't work without all the cellphone and Internet infrastructure these Villains have so thoughtlessly destroyed.

So the SuperVillain spends big bucks to have an iPhone made using 3rd-world technology. Can you imagine the Soviet Union's version of the iPhone? It would be a Steampunker's wet dream...

We used to have the Soviet Union's version of the iphone. It only came in black, weighed 5 pounds, optionally hung on the wall, and had a dial.

Then AT&T's monopoly got taken away from them. :)

Make sure to perfect your maniacal laugh. It's very important.

Also, when wearing a cape, consider shoulderpads to make it billow out a bit and wrap around you better without completely constraining your movement. Also, you can hide micro-missile launchers in there. Sure, you're non-violent, but you could have little capsules that shoot confetti and glitter everywhere, forcing people to have to clean it up and still find little pieces weeks later.

Yeah, but does it sound evil enough? But, since I did get to pick my first name, I thank you for the compliment. :)

Another point, the infamous Aleister Crowly, who I will assume you have heard of, suggested that names with three syllables in the first name and two in the last are the most memorable, and most likely to help a person become famous. But, honestly, I just liked the name Diana.

But...if you're going to be a Super Villian, don't you want to be infamous?

The evil robot army hiding out in the undersea lair does the assembly. Whenever you need a new design, just kidnap the kid/spouse/pet of a suitable genius and force them to design it for you.

In this economy? You'll probably have to hold a small nation for ransom to even get started. Have you considered joining one of the unions?

Mara

If you do join a supervillain union, I highly recommend one of those started by a mid-ranking mercenary who's usually a bad guy, but sometimes a good guy, and plays by the "rules" of supervillainy. If you can't find one, mutant supremacist groups can work out if you're a mutant. Unions started by rich masterminds or alien warlords just never last.

As a rule of thumb, if the person who started the union is someone's archenemy, they're too unstable and powerful to be trusted. Always join unions started by either a recurring nuisance, anti-hero rival, or misunderstood visionary.

I would recommend you studying this guy:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deathstroke_the_Terminator

He's so awesome. I wish he could be in the next Batman movie, but he's a Teen Titans villain, not a Batman villain. And since they won't bring in Robin, that is out of the question.
