Even Super Villains need advice. Sometimes questions aren’t asking for advice, they’re just questions.
In a follow-up to his/her/its question of the other week Mantis made the following comment: “Sorry a few more questions” There’s no need to apologise for asking questions
, no one has ever died from asking a super villain questions.
The questions were as follows:
Are there supervillains you admire?
Yes, Mantis, but not real super villains. However, there is a growing list of completely fiction villains that I admire and look up to.
Have you met Lex Luthor?
Regular readers of my blog, and especially my diary, will know I went to Lex Luthor High School, so, of course, Mr Luthor was invited to be the main speaker at our graduation ceremony each year. Anyone who knows Luthor will know that this means, no, I have never met him. I did once meet Tex Toother a cowboy dentist if that’s any help.
What is he like?
He’s surprisingly down to earth and likable on a personal level. He’s happy to chat about anything. His life, his work, his personal hatred for Superman. And he’s a natural storyteller. When he talks he really paints a picture with his words. He doesn’t show off his latest device designed to inflict pain on people but you always know he’s never more than a few 3.28 feet from one.
Is he a good role model for an aspiring evildoer?
I can see why a lot of people would see him as evil, but I see what he does as just him doing his job. And he does it well. Sure, there’s pain and blood with what he does, but in the long run it’s for the greater good. People need to look past any horrific experiences they’ve personally had and see that dentists are really good people and not super villains at all.
So I hope that helped you, Mantis and any other readers. If you have any questions don’t be afraid to ask. On most occasions simple asking of harmless questions has not cause many terminations, but in some cases there may be rage-related deaths.
