DH and the kids have been playing Villainous, which is a Disney-based game that pits Disney-universe villains (including Marvel!) against each other.
Which got us talking– who is the most evil Disney villain? (What makes a villain evil?) On the one hand, you’ve got villains who are misguided but cause a lot of damage (Thanos though I guess that’s not cartoon), and on the other others who seem genuinely deep down evil but don’t actually end up doing that much (Sleeping Beauty’s step-mom). Does motivation matter? Does amount of destruction matter?
Is selfishness and jealousy enough, or do they have to *enjoy* causing other people to suffer? Do they have to seem especially creepy?
I think if we’re going with classic villains, Cruella de Ville has my vote. But in the expanded universe, Lotso from Toy Story is the creepiest villain I’ve seen in what is becoming the Disney Monopoly universe.
What do you all think? Who is the most evil cartoon Disney Villain?
