Villains, on the other hand, usually care about themselves and whoever they’re destroying. That selfishness may be one of the central qualities of super-villainy (well, the “villainy” part anyway). It’s very personal. That nothing else in the world matters so much to them as their revenge or ideological expression makes them interesting. Sure, Batman is single-minded, but he single-mindedly defends the people of Gotham (and the world). The villains, by being focused on anything but saving lives, end up being the bad guys almost by default.
(Tried using my new tumblr powers to get Jason Todd pics. All I got was slash. Sorry folks, I'm tryin' here.)
