Most of us dream of being a super-hero and of saving their city from all chaos and destruction. Either flying on top of Metropolis, swinging through the busy streets of New York City, or reigning in the shadows of Gotham City, it's a lot of fun being a role model everyone looks up to. But why not join the dark side and create some mayhem? If everyone plans on being the hero, there is no one there to be the villain- who will our heroes fight?! Worry not, here are 5 simples steps needed in order for you to become a super-villain. Follow these steps, and you'll be hated by the top heroes in no time!
STEP 1- HAVE A SAD, HARD CHILDHOOD: In order for you to become a super-villain, you need to have anger boiling inside; your heart full of hatred for all things cute and adorable. What other way is there to bottle up years of anger and pain than to have a sad, lonely, miserable childhood? Having a sad childhood will guarantee that you have bottled up emotions cooking in your brain like a hot, steamy breakfast omelette.
STEP 2- HAVE A LOVED ONE DIE IN AN UNFORTUNATE ACCIDENT: If you had an awesome childhood and still want to pursue the lavish dream of being a super-villain, we got you covered. Do you have someone in your life whom you dearly love, look up to and would not part away from, even for a moment? HAVE THEM DIE, OF COURSE! It doesn't matter if it's your dog, your grandpa, your wife, your kids- just have them die! Do not lead them to death, but see them gasp their last breath in front of your eyes while no one is there to help you. This will guarantee fuel your hatred for humanity, and steer you right to the dark side.
STEP 3- HAVE AN EVIL PLAN: No super-villain improvises their master plan; it's all sorted out at the begining. Start with a piece of pen and paper and jot down ideas. Do you want to be a conservative villain, safeguarding all possibilites of you capture? Or do you want a create a monster-mayhem, where the chances of you getting caught is high, but the destruction level is higher? The first couple of times won't be right, as the super-heroes will come to save the day. But practice makes perfect; keep doing what you are doing, and one fine day, you'll achieve your dream of creating major disorder in your city.
STEP 4- HAVE A PHYSICAL SCAR ON YOUR BODY: A clean-cut super-villain is no fun; you might as well sign up to be a super-hero. Scars on your body our fun! They're great for the citizens to recognize their reaper, and it makes you look way cooler than the perfect-bodied super-heroes. Scars on the face are highly-recomended, adding a touch of bad-ass to your reputation.
STEP 5- INVEST IN A LABORATORY: Although this one is on the expensive side, it's a great investment. It will make the citizens think that you're really smart, and will fear that you will destroy them in a smart yet severe way. Experiment with animals, such as snakes, lizards or create your own alien-symbiote! Also, Make sure you have strength-enhancing gases lying around, and don't be shy to experiment on yourself. Laboratories not only add evil to your reputation, but are also a great place to fight super-heroes.
Follow these small steps and you will become a 5-star rated super-villain in no time. Don't be shy to add your own jazz to it; be creative! Play around with weapons, dark colors, dangerous animals and gases- the list is yours to fill! So come on up, follow these steps and JOIN THE DARK SIDE!
