Who doesn't love a good, complex villain? If you don't have a good villain, then you can't find a way to root for the good guys. The villains are often misunderstood and if maybe someone would give them a hug once and awhile... the world could be a lot safer, like for real.

Redditor u/twilighterror wanted to know what villains they can't help but adore by asking.... Which villain do you feel sympathy for?


Enter Sandman.

Sandman from the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man series in the third movie. He just wanted to save his remaining family. Don't agree with his methods but do agree with his reason. Xander0907

The Chemistry.

Anytime a romantic comedy features the story of a guy or girl meeting someone who is already in a relationship, I always feel bad for their soon-to-be ex (think Sweet Home Alabama!), even when the ex gets painted as a "nagging woman" or a "guy who works all the time," etc. I also hate the idea of there only being one "right" person for each of us being romanticized like that... I think love is just as much about making a choice as it is about the chemistry. mkhenry

Love you Girl. 

Medusa. She didn't do anything wrong. grimalkin-

Absolutely! She was in Athena's temple (an honorable thing for Athena) but Poseidon came and assaulted her, and for inexplicable reasons, Athena gets pissed at Medusa! turning her into a monster that would turn people to stone. She had no intentions of hurting anyone, and was 100% a victim, yet punished nonetheless. j0hnl33

He Feels. 

Loki in the first Thor movie. He then turned into an antihero of sorts, not a villain, but he is certainly a villain in the first movie. Dude just wanted his father to love him as much as he loved Thor, then he finds out he was kidnapped from the frost giants and raised in a lie. JNaran94

Baby No!

Giphy

Baby Doll from the old animated Batman series. She was stuck looking young forever and it broke her down. She actually cried in Batman's arms because of it. Transbendobot

To Hell and Back. 

He's typically seen as a villain due to Disney and Satan, but I'm sympathetic to Hades. In his original myths the only bad thing he ever did was kidnap Persephone, and that was normal at the time. He even asked Zeus first. He treats Persephone kindly, and in most versions she falls in love with him in end. Outside of of that myth Hades mostly minds his own business and does his work. heBukkitLord

The Beaver. 

Mr. Crocker he's a mentally unstable man who lives with his mother and takes loan's to build lairs underneath the school and is tormented by a kid who looks like a beaver and the one thing he dedicates his life to do exist but every time he is close to proving it he fails and looks more crazy and the time he stopped believe6ing in fairies after seeking help he had to be driven back into madness because he powers a large percentage of fairy world. theadeck

The Monster. 

Frankenstein's monster. kiwiconspiracy

In the book it's astounding how much of a jerk Victor is. mindcorners

Isn't that the whole "knowledge is knowing Frankenstein is the doctor wisdom is knowing that Frankenstein is the monster" thing? Aurum555

The Dark Count....

Dracula from the Netflix "Castlevania" series. Dude lost his wife to religious fanatics after he rediscovered his humanity AND had to fight and nearly kill his son, the only thing in this world that Lisa left him to remember her by. I don't know about you but that was pretty much what sold me on the Netflix series. fatrabbit61614

Mutants.

Giphy

Magneto, holocaust survivor turned super powerful mutant who is always trying to protect his people so they never have to go what he went thru in the camps. CT-2400

If you live on this earth and you're fortunate enough to form long-lasting relationships with different people, chances are you'll know the pain of heartbreak. It's an unavoidable fact of life.

We are not guaranteed to stay with one person forever, as we were reminded once Redditor disturbance of mirrors asked the online community,

"People whose long-term relationship faded, what was the final straw that made you realize it was time to call it a day?"

There is always that "one." There is always going to be that person.

That person who you will always remember. And when they are the one who you regret losing most... they are the ghost that will haunt you forever.

I have a few escapees. I'll never know how it would've turned out. But that is part of why I'm haunted. I need to discuss....

Redditor u/AssistantNo1733 wanted to discuss all the times we've lost in love by asking:

Who's the one who got away?
