Episode #46 – Villains: What’s Your Type?

Comics books, movies, TV, and the rest of pop culture are filled with wonderful heroes; but they are also filled with wonderful villains with which the heroes can match wits. There are many different ways you can categorize bad guys, but one could be this way: doppelgangers vs originals. Doppelgangers are the evil version of the hero, the inverse, the dark negative. Originals have their own story, their own gimmick. Often they have just a cool hook or an aspect that plays well against the hero. But which is better? The panel takes a good look at both to see which version creates a better story, and by extension, makes the hero better.
