Even Super Villains need advice. Everyone’s the hero of their own story, the Super Villain’s POV…
One of the 2010 Animated Super Villain films, Despicable Me is the story of a Super Villain who ends up raising three children.
The film Despicable Me lacks a “hero” (social hero, the protagonist hero is obviously the villain, because that’s what Super Villain POV is all about) and so shows a world that is unfettered by their showy antics. If only, right? Still, it does allow the story to concentrate more on the rivalry between villains, something usually rarely touched on in other stories.
It does play into the age old stereotype of villains who hate children, which really isn’t fair. In the real world I’ve certainly heard rumours of Super Villains that don’t necessarilty hate children. Of course, Gru, the main character does learn to like children, but often the viewer forms their opinions on a character from the before, not the after.
