6 Steps To Superbad Villains

We all love to hate bad guys, and you gave me some fantastic additions to my villain list last week, (thank you). What I love more than hating a bad guy, is a bad guy that makes me empathise with them before I hate them. It makes the hate so much more powerful, because they cheated me, and I hate thinking of myself as gullible, so if they did get to me, then that makes them superbad in my eyes!

I’ve been thinking about my own antagonists/villains in my WIP, and what I can do to develop them, to make them more hateable but loveable. It led me to thinking about the importance of villains having a redeeming quality or some kind of positive trait.
