Six did snap a baby's neck, but Cavill started the whole thing.


Oh!  I watched the series end to end after it was finished.  One of the best series I have ever seen.

It really was good.  I even took a Battlestar Galactica class last semester.  Got 1 unit to watch the show.  I hadn't seen any of it before (but I had seen the 1978 series), so it was neat to watch a show and discuss/analyze it at the same time.

Agreed.  And the ones who reassigned Drew Karpyshyn to write for SWTOR instead of letting him finish the series.

Claudius from Hamlet.

There's a dramatic term called the 'tragic flaw'.  It comes into play when a good person's best virtue gets twisted around in a way that leads them to the worst possible end.

Claudius creates tragic flaws.  Every single person who dies in Hamlet does so because Claudius turned their best quality into the opposite of what it should be.  Gertrude has excellent judgement, she ends up acting like a bed-hopping whore.  Polonius is a wise counselor, he ends up pimping out his daughter as a spy and hiding in a bedroom like a voyeur.  Ophelia is a respectful daughter, she ends up going mad and committing suicide.  Laertes is an honorable man, he ends up a poisoner.  Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are good friends, they end up being spies carrying what they think is their friend's death warrant.  Hamlet is an excellent planner, he ends up stuck in hesitation until after he's poisoned and has nothing left to plan for.

Other villians may be flashier, but Claudius is the living incarnation of poison.

Perhaps the most evil and the most true-to-life.

I don't believe there's such a thing as "evil" in and of itself -- I believe there's selfishness and selflessness, as well as cruelty and compassion, and what society tends to label as "evil" is actually cruelty and/or selfishness. Nobody declares themselves evil (unless they're deranged). Hitler didn't twirl an imaginary mustache and say "Now we will unleash my evil plan!" -- In fact, most people who society calls "evil" actually see themselves as the good guy. Hitler was convinced that his choices were for the good, even though to everyone outside of his influence they were obviously selfish and cruel. The same goes for a guy like Pat Robertson. He is 100% convinced he is the good guy, and that the homosexuals, atheists, and others whom he hates are the "evil" ones. However, when we step back we see he's the one acting selfishly and with cruelty.

Cartman perfectly represents this idea. He sees himself as the good guy, and believes the people he doesn't like are the "evil" ones. He acts out of pure selfishness and often with unbridled cruelty. He hurts people because it serves him, because it elevates his goals, because it makes them look bad and makes him look "better" than they are. He hates, but he hates because he sees his opponents as his persecutors, and believes his goals are righteous because they serve his needs, and he sees no needs any greater than his own.

Selfishness and cruelty.

But if Cartman doesn't work for you, then how about this:

Came here to make sure  Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg and  Kaiser Soze got mentioned, and they already have.  They are both pretty evil, but it's the way the movies, not the evil that makes them so great.

Bob Roberts was pretty great.  Darth Vader, Walter White, and Annie Wilkes (Misery) all were great.

I haven't seen it, but Orson Welles as Harry Lime is supposed to be great in The Third Man.  Alex Delarge (Clockwork Orange), Mr. Potter (It's a Wonderful Life).  Gollum.  Hans Landa (Inglorious Bastards).  I'm not a huge Star Trek fan, but for my money, the best 'villain' in any of the series was Kai Winn (played by Louise Fletcher of Nurse Ratched fame.) 

Or if you want to talk about evil characters who only have limited power, but are complete asshats, the teacher from Breakfast Club.

Baron Karza, from the Marvel Universe's Micronauts comic.

Once human, Chief Scientist Karza of Homeworld was driven in his pursuit of super-science, leading him to a secret that allowed him to harness the energies of an entire world. Being a very different universe than ours, these worlds possessed some form of intraplanetary intellect, known as a 'world mind.'

Karza used his newfound form and power to conquer all of homeworld, then set out to conquer the Microverse itself. Where necessary, he slaughtered without consideration for anyone. But perhaps more heinous, he harvested the bodies of people and other beings. To those who lived in support of his rule and edicts, there was provision for them to receive new bodies. Thus his captives were fodder for his Body Banks, and billions of innocents, from adults down to children and even newborns, were murdered by the purging of their conscious from their bodies so that his loyalists could assume the new forms and escape death.

While Karza did have a brief appearance on earth, he perished before he could invade it and our universe. Suffice it to say, he is among the Marvel villains with the most amount of 'blood on his hands.' He was at once charismatic, populist, and mercilessly dark. It took the combined might of another world-mind and the embodiment of a microversal presence to bind Karza and blast him into the depths of Homeworld's core, where presumably his binding on that world-mind was released and he was destroyed.

And he had that ability to change into a centaur, which was cool.
