Why is it that some authors like to insert attractive villains into their stories? Is it to make them relatable since the average human being doesn’t have scaly skin and eyes as black as the abyss? Is it to make our little fan girl and fan boy hearts flutter at the thought of our favorite bad guy or girl entering the room armed with a dastardly plan? Or is it all just a huge mind game to trick us readers into thinking that since they’re so pretty they can’t be bad? The truth is, it’s most likely a little bit of all of those and some.
Well, whatever it is, here’s a villainous treat of some of my favorite (attractive) bad guys!
Harry Osborne. That rich friend of Peter Parker with killer blue eyes from The Amazing Spiderman 2.
Loki. The gorgeous adopted son of Odin and dark haired brother of Thor. This immortal cutie was seen in Thor, Thor: Dark World, and The Avengers.
Tom Riddle. Voldemort before he lost his nose. Now we see why Bellatrix was obsessed with him.
