A fellow nerd, Erik, and I agree that the most interesting villains are the ones that believe they’re actually the good guys, but there’s something to be said for villains like Killmonger and Ulysses Claw in Black Panther.  These guys tap into comedy and evil simultaneously. They live every moment of their lives in danger, so they don’t react to danger as normal people do. They’ve always got a smile on their faces even as their shooting someone in the back, so they can believably throw out humorous lines (“I made it rain!”) as people are dying around them.

An example of how this trait plays out is when T’Challa seemingly returns from the dead. What’s Killmonger’s reaction? With a smirk on his face, he asks, “Whassup?!” Killmonger knows exactly what’s up. T’Challa has defied all odds and seeks revenge. But Killmonger just just doesn’t care. For him, it’s just another moment in his life of constant danger.

Of course, we already saw this with Ulysses Claw in Avengers: Age of Ultron. When faced with two threatening enemies who’s powers Claw understood, Claw faced it with a sick sense of humor and confidence. He kept his cool because there’s was nothing they could throw at him — not even Wanda with her mind games — that could possibly scare him any more than many of his life experiences have.

These are great villains too. I love it.
