The villain as something only part human. devoid of most of humanities character traits. expressionless. an immobile heap of flesh that controls the world with a steely stare. a parasitic brain using an idiots body for the mundane requirements of living.
a paraplegic by choice. allowing ones limbs to atrophy as they are superfluous to the core aspects of living.
power is not attained by hard work and knowledge. power is attained by overcoming societys rules and responsibilites. whilst the majority adhere to the social contract (to earn a wage, pay ones taxes) the rulers just disregard the rules and do as they please. this is not a choice anyone can make but a matter of evolution of enduring certain modes of behaviour till they are redundant.
