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

An almost guaranteed phase of entering adulthood is unintentionally making it clear how much older you are than some present company.

This could be by the way you dress, talking about seeing a movie in its initial release when the person you're talking to wasn't born yet, or more than likely, by the way you talk.

When you say a slang term or phrase which was common place when you were a child, but today would likely be met by looks of confusion, or even disgust, should you use a term which is not only outdated but now considered offensive.

But then, shaking these old fashioned, or just plain old, terms and phrases might be a difficult task, so engrained are they in our vocabulary.

Redditor InfiniteDrafts was curious to hear what phrases people continue to use, despite knowing how quickly it will date them, leading them to ask:

What slang do you use regularly that is totally outdated?

Who doesn't love a theme party?

When you not only get to dress up in something completely over the top, but also get to bear witness to everyone else's zany outfits in-keeping with the party's theme.

Be it Regency era, glam rock, or fairy tale villains.

Or what if the challenge is just to be blatantly inappropriate?

A theme which got the imagination of Redditor StockD0ctorStockD0ctor running wild, resulting in their taking to Reddit to ask:

"You are going to a party. The theme is dress inappropriately. Who or what do you dress as?"
