Cringe and unbased.
He lives in a capitalist world, you can't keep creating new stuff without money to make more.
His entire motivation was selfish anyway. Its rather like the Joker in the recent film. It's incidentally helping people but that's not why he did it.
Obscure? The first Planet of the Apes is one of the most famous movies of all time.
At least Joker was straight up honest about his intentions.
>>6593>His entire motivation was selfish anyway.
As he says in the movie, "When everyone's super, no-one is." This is supposed to be read as evil and destroying individuality as the typical anti-communist shit, but this is complete trash. If you look at the superheroes in the story they are much more individual than the normal people who are actively portrayed as bland. He doesn't want to destroy individuality but to make people more
have the same level of power. His motivations are only "selfish" insofar as he is part of the un-powered masses and has seen for himself the consequences of this. Just like in capitalism the masses depend on someone above them (capitalists or supers) to make their lives even possible. Capitalists are the gatekeepers of jobs - without them giving you a job you can't work to live. Supers are the gatekeepers of not getting killed by monsters. In the Incredibles world, normies are reduced to the victims and playthings of supers who are either "evil" (using powers to enrich themselves by attacking the status quo) or "good" (fighting the evil ones on behalf of the status quo and also getting rich for it). Syndrome wanted everyone to be on the same playing field for the sake of safety and personal/political power. The Incredibles wanted to preserve the divide between supers and normies because their self-esteem was based on feeling special and better than the normies.
All this is true, HOWEVER he does this out of his own disillusionment with Heroes and selfish want for revenge. He's doing it out of spite and for self-benefit. That's not necessarily bad, but you get my point (hopefully).
Ace combat has such a weird obsession with anarchists. On one hand it paints them as the well meaning voice of reason, opposing the senseless slaughter that is war in strangereal but then in zero Pixy's solution to end the belkan war is just to nuke the world, wtf?
It reminds me of that guy in dr Stone who wants to kill all the adults so that property rights can't be reinstated.
It's like they have to make the communists/anarchists totally retarded in their methods to be able to present the status quo in a good light.
I know what you're saying but was it purely out of spite and self-benefit? He was carrying out his plan before he even encountered the Incredibles. He was liquidating the supers who protected the status quo, but aside from defeating the opposition, that was how he was able to duplicate their powers, seizing the metaphorical means of production which he then intended to distribute to the masses. He did stand to benefit from it, but even before he was going to hand out super powers he had a private island and a lot of wealth as an industrialist. What more did he really stand to gain from this? And wasn't the whole point of amassing that wealth to achieve the goal of making everyone super?
>>6598>fighting the evil ones on behalf of the status quo and also getting rich for it
I don't think any of the supers were getting rich in The Incredibles universe. I never saw The Incredibles 2, so maybe there were bougie heroes in that one, but at least in The Incredibles the supers were like student athletes. They get "paid" by living the rock star lifestyle for a few years and having all their needs and wants taken care of, and then they get tossed aside when the bosses are done with them.
They were rich relative to normies, like the "PMC" types or labor aristocrats. Even if it's just having their needs met by the state that's well above what normies have.
Eh, considering that Sheev established Fascism, I'm pretty sure that makes him an asshole
Unironically though, the CIS were the good guys who should've won
although fun for jokes, the CIS were paid and owned by bankers and corporations.
Isn't the whole point that he's some kind of energy vampire
Correction should be made. CIS shouldn't have won, but Dooku. He was supposedly an almost Blanquist figure who wanted to have CIS win, become a "puppet" leader of the new Republic, but then turn on the corporations and centralize the state.
This I accept. Honestly I enjoy that characters stoic seriousness.
Dooku was pretty cool.
Probably helped that he was played by Christopher "I stabbed a Nazi in the chest so I know what being stabbed sounds like Peter" Lee.
>>6631>I stabbed a Nazi in the chest so I know what being stabbed sounds like
Actually it was in the back. And yeah Lee is a great actor, however the Clone Wars animated Dooku was rather charismatic as well
Berlin, from Money Heist i.e. Casa De Papel.
Followed all the rules and was fair in his decisions and didn't lose his cool. Was polite, proud, refined and charismatic yet also intimidating strict and unyielding. A respectable if quirky man.
Pedro Alonso (who played Berlin) described him as "cruel, heroic, and funny at the same time".
Ironically a lot of media denounced him as cold and really misogynistic or derisive of others yet, he his 'derision' was merely a more polite method of insulting people who offended him. He is not mysogynistic so much as oddly chivalrous yet also assertive, he does not force people to do something (unless it is a critical situation) but convinces and gives them a choice, such as Arianna. He also has emotions and demonstrates frighteningly accurate understanding of how others think and feel and how to calm them or frighten them. He is analytical and intelligent, yet passionate and strange, creating an odd, mature character who I sympathize with.

He made some pretty good points

Here's an interesting one: Kel'Thuzad. While he is definitely not a "good" guy, his motivation is highly relatable and justifiable.
>Be a powerful and magically gifted individual who can come to a position where all the rot of the human kingdoms become apparent: labourers are overburdened and exploited while imprisoned Orcs are held in concentration camps. All the while human lords grow fat and abuse their power.
>Attempt to expand the known magical knowledge towards necromancy but get screwed over by the dogmatic order of the mages.
>Hear a powerful figure reach out for you. Investigate, discover the true power of the Lich King, and realize you need not be a servant, but can use this as a means to an end.
>Swear fealty to the Lich King and start spreading your own revolutionary doctrine throughout human lands: let us do away with the lords, with the social inequality, with death. Let us forever more be immortal and equal, in service of our new king, throw away the dogmatic superstitions of the Light and embrace undeath!
>Recruit many like minded followers. Eventually set of the events that will scour the corrupt old order from the face of the earth.
>To keep you is no benefit, to destroy you is no loss: all those who didn't accept the gift shall be wiped out by the plague and newly raised armies of undead, forced to serve the will of the master.
>Get killed, only to be resurrected and ascend to become a lich latter due to you invaluable service.
>Endear yourself to the princeling Arthas, make him your friend, and a suitable replacement for the original Lich King.
>Free the Scourge from any demonic control. Now it dictates its own future.
And here is his manifesto, "One Truth in Undeath":
<Behold the finest of ironies. The living ascribe unto undeath all the most sickly attributes of their own lives–hopeless servitude, savagery, stillness of the spirit. We serve! The living serve, too, though they serve kings, warlords, druids, priests, gods, men, and beasts. We serve only the mighty, unifying will of the Lich King, which compels us unto prosperity and unity!
<For all the endeavours of men, there exist only endless records of tragedy, cruelty, betrayal, and selfishness. For the Scourge, there is only efficiency and totality. Serve the Lich King in life, or serve him in death. His is a way of choice whose roads lead only to fulfillment!
<Cold in flesh, but warmed by unity, the mighty Scourge are one nation, one mind, one being. True cold dwells in the heartless gaze of the guards who turn away sickly refugees from their neighboring country in a time of war! Are not all men of one kind? Nay, divided in their icy hearts.
<Raise high our ideals, and bring low our foes! Fold their broken into our number until all serve the Frozen Throne!
Aye, although that scientist dude did have a point by asking "where would you go?"
Forgot to mention that Rhodes fucked up when he took off in that little vehicle without the rest of his men, it's likely they would've survived had he just waited for a couple seconds
He overthrew a measured, rationed ecosystem for a unbalanced free-for-all… that's not based
>>6702>muh caste system was perfect before the wh*te lions messed it up
I can smell the curry in this post
How the fuck is that even relevant you ape? Look at the result of Scar's "rule" Unregulated constant hunting and resultant over-consumption desiccated the land. Not saying the whole "Lion monarchy" thing was good, but Scar didn't do away with the 'lion monarchy', just replaced 1 good king with himself.
>>6704>Scar ate all the grain and paid the clouds not to rain.
I can't believe you would post such credulous monarchist propaganda.
I can't tell if you're being ironic or not in this comparison. He and his hyenas and the lions hunted without regulation, resulting in over-hunting and the herds moving away.
>>6603>I know what you're saying but was it purely out of spite and self-benefit?
Yes. His plan also involves the pointless random murder of a significant number of people in a city just so that he can look like the hero saving the day, hoard his technology for his entire lifespan (assuming he doesn't extend his own life further), and then sell off the technology just so he can look like he was actually just being generous to humanity one last time before he died. He might have ultimately helped out humanity and ended a massive inequality, but it was only incidental to him being a murderous narcissist and a final "fuck you" on a ten-year-long grudge against Mr. Incredible.
Weird that they’re directed by a French dude.
>>6707>resulting in over-hunting and the herds moving away.
The herd moved away because the land is barren, which is the result of drought. The absence of herds would cause more plants to grow as grazing decreased.
It is based on Shakespeare (mostly Hamlet) so of course the movie is monarchist propaganda. That's how those old plays go:>usurper kills king>land goes crazy as storms tear across the country and the horses eat one another and the sun is eclipsed from the sky and ghosts walk the earth, etc>usurper is killed and rightful heir takes throne>suddenly everything is magically fine again
Hello /pol/>>6718>absence of herds would cause more plants to grow as grazing decreased.
Aye, however that's not the point of the depiction. The idea here is that with Mufasa, the lions hunted enough to cull the herds and allow the grass to grow properly, and still not over-hunt them. Scar does not do this and ends up depleting the herds. The drought is a metaphor for his destructive rule rather than a direct consequence.
Also as >>6721
points out its based on Hamlet and Macbeth and other Shakespearean plays on betrayal. However I disagree that it is monarchist propaganda so much as it is a monarchist idealism, something that is prevalent in fairy tales. Shakespear also challenges such ideas in other plays of his.
I'm saying that Lion King as a retelling of Hamlet is effectively the fascist story of the interaction between the internal traitor and external barbarians.
>>6724>between the internal traitor and external barbarians.
That doesn't really have anything to do with Jews or Blacks though so mentioning that is pointless.
what's up with these threads where we're just posting pol memes for some reason? I don't get the point…
Where? The idiot talking about Jews and blacks? cause he's only 1 guy.
Is Madoka Magica a Satire of Capitalism?
There are a surprising number of similarities between the anime universe of Madoka Magica and our current economic system. I didn't just make this up, I've been thinking about it for a few months now. After sufficient time, I have made this completely up and even wrote a log line and story beats in case any aspiring script writers are interested in making an adaptation based on the idea. Here goes the theory…
First, the pun between a soul gem bearing magical girl and a singularly owned sole-proprietorship seems overly obvious, but it's just the tip of the iceberg for everything about the show being analogous to some economic feature or system. There is the feeding cycle between pedestrian consumers, witch corporations, and a magical girl sole-proprietorship; where people feed witches their money, defeated witches rejuvenate magical girls' spent assets, and occasionally a magical girl that loses faith in her cause becomes corrupted and incorporates into a publicly traded C-Corp… I mean, she transforms into a soulless witch.
Let's delve deeper into the contracts formed between incubators (QBs) and the magical girls (private, entrepreneurial citizens). There is nothing in a contract that obligates a magical girl to become a witch, it's simply the logical outcome of an indefinite period where specific circumstances will cause her to transform. This is similarly not a guaranteed requirement in the real world either. Indeed, Homura not only survived an indefinite number of iterations of her one month with Madoka and the others, she even proves that one need not ever transform based on her staying a magical girl past the end of the show (until the QBs forced her into a hopeless prison for the movie). The show had some natural deux ex machina law that required magical girls to transform, and reality could go in that direction too with specific circumstances. Let's say that a small business is failing and has a lot of debtors. Courts can seize the company (the owner's assets) and distribute either assets or revenues to debtors to settle the debt. If there is a single debtor, such as a bank, or is a single debtor with enough capital to buy out the others in exchange for exclusive control, such as a bank, then that debtor has total control to how the company ends its existence; which could include being sold to a venture capitalist, being incorporated and being sold via stock offering, or simply being liquidated for cash. Most banks will liquidate assets and hope to cover losses, but a savvy bank might invest in a freshly failed venture just to sell it on the stock market as a publicly traded corporation. Example: Warren Buffet's first business acquisition was an insurance company, and he bought it specifically because it had a high asset to debt ratio that he could leverage for other investments without breaking any laws. Any bank with a similar strategy might even write specific clauses to trigger this situation into their loan agreements; say for a certain asset to debt ratio or requiring minimum valuation to retain autonomy. The suspension in disbelief for this theory to work is that some bank out there would actually adopt the policy of investing in failure for hopes of a successful IPO. Failing that suspension of disbelief, we can still acknowledge that this could happen, even if we doubt that it would happen.
The fights between witches and magical girls is beautifully illustrated on screen, but all that magical flash could also just be an abstraction for the negotiations between businesses during a merger. This is especially relevant for a hostile take over. Let's say that a magical girl's sole-proprietorship wants to eliminate a witch's corporation from her city. The girl might try to buy out the corporation's stock or all the local franchises if she has a large enough magical bankroll to finance such an attack. She may also sabotage relations with vendors that the witch needs to operate by buying all the local stock or negotiating prices with those vendors to make corporate activities unfeasible. Introducing a competing product is an obvious strategy too, as would introducing an alternative product that obviates the corporate product line entirely. All of those activities are going to be expensive, and both magical girls and small businesses have a limited reserve for waging such a battle. But if she wins against the witch, and merges the ownership/market to exclusively herself, then the corporation's assets can be utilized or liquidated to replace the resources spent. When Homura defeated Charlotte after Mami's failure, she refused to give the witch seed to Sayaka and Madoka; which makes perfect sense if you envision an equivalent scenario where a purchased corporation is being asked to be given to lay persons that have no demonstrated business skills themselves.
Finally I draw attention to the heat death of the universe. The ticking clock that spells eventual doom for some later generation in the future. To say it slightly differently, let me introduce you to the national debt, a ticking clock that spells eventual ruin for some generation in the future. QB openly benefits from the energy released when a regular girl becomes a magical girl and whenever a witch is defeated then fed to him; but he also benefits from the much more profitable scenario of a magical girl transforming into a witch. Banks benefit when you park a large volume of cash into their reserves for regular business activities, for reasons that aren't relevant to this theory. But it very relevantly benefits from your regular payments on any loans you've drawn, loans which will be especially high if you're in the business of putting other businesses out of business. However, a bank could make the ultimate profit if it takes a nearly default company and sells it at an Initial Public Offering (IPO). This is where we get the best parallel between fictional story and real world events. Not only is that the transformation between both magical girls and witches, but also between singularly owned businesses and publicly traded corporations. Furthermore, Because all banks with US dollars purchase their dollars from the Federal Reserve (name is a misnomer, it is not a government entity), they directly owe the debt to the FedRes. So for as much as it is in the public interest to lower the national debt, it is a much greater prerogative for banks to control the expansion and possible contraction of the national debt.
QB sees that Madoka has potential to be a successful business owner. But he sees even greater potential from an IPO that will necessarily happen sooner or later.
What do you think? Have I been studying for my economics finals too long and I need to watch more anime instead; or am I an idiot for taking both Micro and Macro at the same time because "elective credits are always easy classes"? -OR- Is this an amazing theory that warrants re-watching the classic anime from a fresh perspective, because I'm so on point with my analysis?
This is a semi-ironic thread for villain-apologists, not a marxist review of anime. That said, good effort post.

Stain from Boku no Hero is a bloody comrade, literally.

They get a giant mansion in number 2 but thats funded by some trust fund kids that want to revive supers as a concept. You know what thinking back to that. A lot of the story didn't make sense. For instance >>6598>normies are reduced to the victims and playthings of supers who are either "evil" (using powers to enrich themselves by attacking the status quo) or "good" (fighting the evil ones on behalf of the status quo and also getting rich for it). Syndrome wanted everyone to be on the same playing field for the sake of safety and personal/political power.
Supers were already banned long before syndrome started putting his plan in place. The status quo seemed to chug along fine without the supers in fact. So much so the state was hiding them and making sure they couldn't use their powers. It was syndrome's grudge who revived the supers. He could have easily sold his technology and the state would have suppressed the supers for him. He recreated the conditions for supers coming back by unleashing that robot thing. Creating an existential threat that couldn't be handled by the state. Forcing the masses to turn to supers.
he's literally a capitalist
Stalin was unironically no worse than most figures throughout history and from the communist perspective was easily one of the most effective leaders in socialist history
That's why they hate him. They don't like competent socialists, so they try to muddy MLs
Yeah but MG1 was Venom who """"Apparently"""" Has gone genuine cray-cray by that point and is just a generic villian and he sorta made a dick move in MG2 by stealing the biofuel schematics and almost starting world war three between Iran-Russia-Pakistan-China
Eyyy, I was wondering if I would have to post him
He did his best for his people, but his plan relied entirely on a gamble.
The new 4th season makes him into a real psycho for some reason, probably so people wouldn't romanticize him
Stain is the typical example of a villain who has a good idea but "bad methods", and the "bad methods" are used to dismiss the good idea. It's even acknowledged by Iida and Midoriya that Stain was right about heroes but for some reason the fact that he killed people means we don't have to think too hard about the fact that hero society is blatantly corrupt I guess.
That said, Stain was an unstable idiot whose brilliant plan of killing random dudes accomplished nothing and everyone in lefty spaces forgets that he wasn't against the idea of heroes, he wanted a government regulated occupation to be replaced by something closer to comic book heroes ie self-organizing vigilantes. He wasn't some based anti-cop guy, just a delusional idealist.
I agree with the first half of your post I disagree with the other half;
>an unstable idiot
He was unstable but hardly an idiot, he was just tired of all the shit so he decided to cut-down the corruption until someone took him down because he was tired and desperate to change things the only way he knew how. >he wasn't against the idea of heroes, he wanted a government regulated occupation to be replaced by something closer to comic book heroes
Wrong. He was against that too. He wanted heroes who were heroes because they cared about people genuinely and only did their work for that, not for merchandising purposes or for glory like Endeavor. >some based anti-cop guy
Nobody said he was, that was never the point>a delusional idealist
He was an idealist, but I wouldn't say delusional.
This. This. This.
What a great anime.
True. Are they sentient?
AFAIK they’re roughly as intelligent as dolphins or chimps
Well according to the original lore (not prometheus shite) They were parasitic life-forms from a certain planet created as bio-weapons. They're animals, but also invasive species that destroy everything and then hibernate when there is no more food or breeding material. >anti-colonial resistance fighters in Aliens, beating back the human invasion of their home only to be nuked

All of which is undermined by his fetish for murdering superheroes, which was of rather dubious utility in testing his creations.
There's no evidence that he would actually equalise humanity through his technology - he revels in his superiority, would he ever give it up? The moment someone learnt to fly their rocketboots better he would create an improved version just for himself.
>>8898>of rather dubious utility in testing his creations.
Eh, it clearly showed their weakpoints and thus what problems to address. >There's no evidence that he would actually equalise humanity through his technology
He outright states that when he's done playing hero and taking out supers, he'll sell his inventions so that EVERYBODY can be super, and so when everyone is super, no-one will be. Uravnovilovka through a sort-of transhumanism.
Based. Cantus users were horrible to the bakenezumi.
What I didn't understand from the show is why didn't the cantus users slaughter all non cantus users after turning them into bakenezumi? What purpose does keeping them around fulfill when with their powers they don't even need a slave caste?

Also the Hero Faction to some extent, since their ideology rebels against all heirarchy and supernatural domination.
I liked Bane

Honestly even with the nuke Bane is still better than Batman.

KANE LIVES!!!!! PEACE THROUGH POWER!!!!!
Davy Jones was just given the short end of the stick and the true villain was Beckett who sought to control the Sea for the East India Company.
Davy Jones was at first a mortal pirate who fell in love with the sea (and thus the goddess Calypso). He agreed to ferry souls to the next world in return for meeting with her on land once every 10 years. To carry out the duty she charged to him, Calypso gave Jones the Flying Dutchman. He did the job faithfully for the first 10 years, ferrying the souls of those who died at sea over to the other side. After those 10 years were up he waited on land for Calypso to meet with him, but she never arrived. Enraged and betrayed, he gathered the first pirate lords/meeting of the brethren court and showed them how to bind Calypso into human form (Tia Dalma) to tear rule of the seas away from her as vengeance for not showing up after 10 years had passed. Heartbroken and racked by guilt Jones then carved out his heart and placed it into the dead man’s chest, burying it on Isla Cruces. He abandoned his duty in favour of torturing other sailors so that they might feel the same pain he was subject to, losing his humanity in the process, gradually turning into the monstrosity we see in the movies along with the Flying Dutchman. https://pirates.fandom.com/wiki/Davy_Jones
He's very much like Darth Vader: Both given the task of enforcing and helping that which their lives were dedicated to (Galaxy (Force) /Sea) They were both betrayed and lost the girl they loved and were left scarred an mutilated inside and out - becoming monsters.
Also he's a great Organ player
Speaking of Pirates of the Caribbean, Captain Salazar wasn't much of a villainous villain really. All he wanted was revenge for being killed so horribly and what he was doing was essentially purging the seas of pirates because all they did was kill and pillage.

None of what you said is even remotely true faggot, this has been debunked on the vatar thread. >Muh Spanish EMPIRE!!!!
Way to strawman the post faggot.
1) the posts states "villainous villain" all we know about him is that he hunted pirates because they killed his family members and he wanted to remove their terror
2) Just because he isn't "le epic socialist comrade" doesn't make him a non-villain in the story. The only reason we are given to not like him is because he's going after characters of the series that people have grown to like, such as Jack Sparrow.
>>6558>unironically sayin Sheev and not Palpatine
>>6599>and selfish want for revenge
That's a based af reason
To maintain an Other which to point out
The Wandering Ninja did nothing wrong. They just wanted somewhere to settle down and the only reason we care is because the Feudal Lord and his Tactician are shown as good people (and it involves the main characters so we root for them). https://naruto.fandom.com/wiki/Watari_Ninja
I was laughing out loud when the main character was saying "wow you're using violence, doesn't that make you as bad as the founders?"
First choice is literally every villain in ancient Greek literature and mythology.
Actually no, one exception, Sisyphus. That fucker deserved what he got. Entropy is the greatest enemy of the tyrant and the greatest friend of the oppressed, and anyone trying to surpass it is a true villain. So long as men die, liberty will never perish.
If you hold that New testament Satan and Old testament Satan are the same being Satan is about half as responsible as God for the suffering inflicted on Job and the pointless and extremely cruel deaths of his family, friends, livestock and servants/slaves
Apart from that Satan seems a pretty cool guy
The mother fucker deserved it.
We don't see any of that TBF
Like every villain is actually based if youre not some retarded npc:
Sauron - based
Sith - based
Voldemort - based
>>11336>Voldemort - based
He represents a cross between the Nazis (ideologically) and the Nationalist IRA (action-wise), so wrong. >Sith - based
It's the ironic moment of "only sith deal in absolutes" because the Sith and Jedi are not black and white in their ideologies or actions. >Sauron - based
Ah yes, I too have read the Last Ringbearer >>1214
>>11345>The last ringbearer
Bear in mind that the Lord of the rings is written from the perspective of the Hobbits. Who have no interest in the wider conflict other than saving their home.
What does this have to do with 17778?
How? Or rather, which sith? Though I'd argue they are all cringe. Jedi are bad as well due to their dogma and tendency to stagnate, but sith are just shit.>Old Sith
Literal crabs in a bucket ancaps. They would only get their shit together when either a) an significantlly more powerful sith that they couldn't drag down emerges and unites the others like Gengis Khan, or b) theybare near exrinction so one of the remaining ones rallied power around him. And even when they actually were powerful their sole goal was just to gorge themselves on material excess and please their egos as much as possible, literal porkies. >New Sith
Less cringe because they at least got their act together and due to the rule of two can ensure far greater power in their hands. Goals are arguablly even worse than the old sith. While those where just egotistical ogres, these ones are solely moved by wanting to end entropy for themselves, which if I recal actually lead to them physically fucking up the galaxy. So not just porkies… silicon valley IT porkies that want to live forever.
Tge only good "sith" are people like Dooku the based nazbol, who pragmatically use the dark side, but not to gorge themselves and please their egoes, but to bring a wider collective boon. I think Revan is also like that, but I don't recal a lot about him.
I havent read the EU because SW is cringe but Second trilogy is them ending the retarded priest Jedi caste as a necessary obstacle in their own self overcoming. Based nietzschean transhumanists. The rebels can get fucked for all i care.
>>11355>Goals are arguablly even worse than the old sith
Depends on the individual sith, plageious wanted to literally create a cybersyn planned economy which would so decisively end all strife that the jedi would be unneeded as mediators and eventually just would disband. others wanted to extend access to the force to all beings (with the caveat of making them adhere to the sith code of course), but then you had palpetine who was palpetine.>I think Revan is also like that, but I don't recal a lot about him.
Revan pragmatically adopted the dark side and formed his sith empire because after the lackluster preformance of the republic in the mandalorian wars he knew there was no way they could beat the oncoming sith empire under valkoryian, who was like palpetine but worse, literally ate whole planets to sustain his life-force.
D-do you mean the Disney Sequels? Are you alright in the head? >Nietzsche is based
No>Transhumanism is good
I don't know where you see that in Disney Sequels, but no, transhumanism is almost always an easy set up for cyberpunk tier dystopia.
LITERALLY. the protagonist is an actual CIA agent meddling in foreign elections. the movie is just one giant neocon propaganda film made for black people.
And the Hobbits are based on rural Englishmen, who don't like changes in their lives.
I think he means the prequels you dolt.
The Hobbit and LotR are canonically written by the protagonists after the fact. Looking at the prose from that light, it's likely that the enemy factions are being described especially unfavorably, and the hobbits come across pretty racist.
I hope so. Still doesn't make the transhumanism or Nietzsche ideology a good thing. LARPing ironically about the Empire is one thing, but it's not actually based
See >>7677 >>6962
the old Planet of the Apes movies all had pretty good villains, most with justifiable motives to boot
It's funny how Tolkien implies that if an orc actually manages to stop being evil, he simply becomes an Elf again.
The concept of a purely evil race is certainly an aspect Tolkien himself struggled with.
While true, at the same time, Tolkien's dogmatic race views IN THE STORY are permissible because
A) he did not share this in his real-world view of other human races
B) Orcs and Elves are beings created by gods, who unlike mortal people can be pure evil and embody metaphysical concepts (evil and good).
Doesn't the setting have orcs that just do their own thing and aren't loyal to Sauron at all? Just like how there are men who serve Sauron and men who don't.>>11544>>11532
Yeah, it's fine to posit a setting where there are different races who have certain innate qualities. Consider for instance a science fiction story where humans have been genetically engineered into a caste system with effectively different species.
Christian theology also has ideas about good and evil non-human races which is relevant to Tolkien's interests and at least partly an inspiration for his setting.
>>11190>burgers act like heroes as usual>they get assblasted by a fucking nuke as a result
COD4 was based.
>>11551>a science fiction story where humans have been genetically engineered into a caste system with effectively different species.
Like in In A New World?
Yeah he changed the origin of orcs to corrupted men instead of elves but was unable to rewrite the Silmarillion before he died.http://tolkiengateway.net/wiki/Orcs
Look under origin.
Orcs are Elves who are fucked, because they had to listen to Tolkien's version of Justin Bieber all day every day.
The entire army of darkness were a bunch of Beliebers really, who followed a fool who thought he is the hottest shit ever.
He was the favourite of Eru of course and had more leeway than the other 14. He wasn't even tied down by marriage like the others.
I believe Melkor is Eru himself who after getting banned actually found the Flame Imperishable, creating a stable time loop.
Consider that Sauron is just a mere Lieutenant to Melkor and a legit order-obsessed turboautist to boot. The reason he defected in the fist place was because of the lack of the order. It fitted with the theme Tolkien tried to make with technological progress. Sauron was a servant of Aulë the Smith. While he as an inventor has good intentions, it can cause bad side effects, like the clockwork brained Sauron. Of note is also that Saruman was also a clockwork brained servant of Aulë and Aulë also created the clockwork brained Dwarves, whom Tolkien intended to be evil as well until he had a change of heart, but whose element you can still observe in the Silmarillon.
Even Tolkien made fun of him (and artificial languages) for creating the Dark Speech which the Orcs didn't bother to pick up. Aside from seething with evil, it was really inferior, and this was intentional on Tolkiens part.

<Today, we rise again as one nation, in the face of betrayal and corruption!
<We all trusted this man to deliver our great nation to a new era of prosperity.
<But like our monarchy before the Revolution, he has been colluding with the West with only self interest at heart!
<Collusion breeds slavery! And we shall not be enslaved!
<The time has come to show our true strength. They underestimate our resolve. Let us show that we do not fear them.
<As one people, we shall free our brethren from the yoke of foreign oppression!
<Our armies are strong, and our cause is just.
<As I speak, our armies are nearing their objectives, by which we will restore the independence of a once great nation.
<Our noble crusade has begun.
<Just as they lay waste to our country, we shall lay waste to theirs.

Not really a villain but a movie
Song of the South
It's not that he's a jovial free man, it's that for some reason people kept spreading this rumor that the movie romanticizes Civil War era America and makes slavery "seem not so bad." The film takes place post civil war, there are no slaves, only sharecroppers. The idea that it glorifies slavery is a misconception caused by an erroneous report given by the NAACP's executive secretary, who had not even seen the film at the time of writing the report. Most of the opposition to the film at the time of it's release came from northerners and Californians who had a questionable understanding of the South and probably thought that everything South of the Mason-Dixon line was racist hicks and cousin incest. Again that's the misconception that's been spread, mostly because it's a case of "since no one in America has an easy way to seeing the movie the urban legends end up overwriting what the movie is really about".
If anything though Song of the South was the kind of movie that would have angered conservatives of its time simply for having a black actor who wasn't portrayed as a bootlicking slave or angry savage.
You wanna know the whole movie? The kids in the movie literally all gather around Uncle Remus to here him tell traditional African-American stories about Brer Rabbit. The whole point of the film and the book (yes, like all Classic era Disney animation, it was based on a book) was to share the oral traditions of the post Civil War freedmen. It's even implied that the main kid's dad is an anti-racism newspaper editor and it's not just white kids listening to his stories.
To quote someone else's comment quoting Lindsay Ellis: "Song of the South promotes the negative stereotype that black people are boring."
; it's not as racist as the legends say, but it's also not a very interesting movie compared to better works like Disney's American Legends. I saw some people theorizing that those things combine are why it hasn't ever been re-released; the possible fallout for something so mediocre and memed about just isn't worth it for Disney. I personally think it should just be on Disney+ with the same insensitivity warning that's on several other things, but I doubt it will ever happen.'
It's interesting to note that James Baskett was the first African-American actor to receive an Academy Award for his "able and heart-warming characterization of Uncle Remus in 'Song of the South,' friend and storyteller to the children of the world."
Song of the South should not be hidden from public viewing (I mean you can watch The Birth of a Nation on multiple streaming platforms, including for Free with Amazon Prime video) and people should view it before making assumptions.
>Inb4 "muh racism" or "Disney-fag"
This has nothing to do with 'defending' Disney or 'racism' but with the merits of the movie itself. https://www.songofthesouth.net/movie/biographies/baskett.html
The fact that every villain in modern burger media is someone explicitly fighting for liberation from western imperialism let’s you know how spiritually and mentally corrupted and twisted burgers truly are.
This is like, imagine the Nazis won WWII and decades later made video games about slaughtering entire cities of wicked Jews plotting to nuke the Reich
Such fucking despicable trash, it’s like everything that comes out of Burgerstan is designed to be utterly detestable to anyone with a semblance of a conscience.
Now that goodguy Biden is back, can't wait for the second wave of Homeland-esque CIA whitewashing shows.
I can smell the glowfaggotry coming over the horizon.
Name some examples.
Now that I think of it, I don't think popular US media has anyone like Chirico Cuvie from Armored Trooper that was a fascist mech ace with PTSD that became a one man army to kill his former fascist comrades to deal with said PTSD. Or Crinn Cashim from Dougram that was the son of the a colonial governor that became a rebel mech ace once he learned his farther was an asshole imperialists that committed a military coup against the local goverment.
Almost every American war film that isn’t about WWII
Almost every American action hero film
Just about every glownîgger show
The entire COD series for the most part
Weren't both of those shows directed by the same guy?

In theory this dude is based, unfortunately, because the Japanese apparently can't write revolutionaries, they way they go about it is terrorism of Land of Waves… a literal backwater that has comparatively little strategic, economic or political value, and would be easier to convert into followers than bother with unnecessary murders and terrorism against the proletariat and peasantry. https://naruto.fandom.com/wiki/Ry%C5%ABha_Armament_Alliancehttps://naruto.fandom.com/wiki/Gary%C5%8D

Reposting about Megatron from the Batman thread
Transformers Prime (2011): Season 1 and 2 of that show were great and Megatron in that show was one of the best depictions; intelligent, clever, powerful and with an imposing, yet sleek design. More importantly however, he was expanded on as a character., becoming more than a stereotypical "I'm evil just because!" of the 80s. He was a former slaveesque miner who was thrown into gladiatorial fights in the pits of Kaon on cybertron. There his skill as a fighter led to triumph, becoming its champion. His popularity grew to the point where he rallied support from the citizens of Cyberton, using his charisma and oratory skill. He led them against the cybertronian council; corrupt and hierarchical, to demand change. However he was corrupted by the greed for power, and lacked political savviness unlike his upper-class Archivist protege Orion Pax, thus leading to a path of darkness and fascism as the latter became selected to be a Prime (becoming Optimus Prime). This lead to the civil war in which Optimus became leader of the Autobots (and where the old caste system was thrown away in the face of war), and becoming the new face of the people.
In other words, a people's hero had his path as a revolutionary turn to the darkness of fascism and his class-traitor protege became the new people's hero and revolutionary, quite similar to real life revolutions among humanity (something pointed out by the show).
This is an ironic change since G1 Orion Pax (pic 4) was originally a dock-worker autobot (since autobots and decepticons are separate peoples for some reason). He idolized Megatron and the re-risen Decepticons as new and improved due to their ability to fly as well as also being able to transform like their autobot counterparts (because originally decepticons could not transform). Only to be revived as Optimus Prime when Megatron raided the energon warehouse he worked at.
Megatron meanwhile was essentially like the Nazis, intent on reviving the decepticon people and being rulers of cybertron, essentially mirroring fascist cries of 'reviving the greatness of the past'. Orion's infatuation was part of fascism's populism before reality showed the error in that belief.

Squealer really fucked up by pointlessly antagonizing Yakomaru (you can see him getting off to Y's humiliation during the council meeting), and then not finishing the job and making sure he's dead. So in a way he can be read as a tragic hero, whose fatal flaw was pride.
This being said, it was a miracle that the revolution didn't go tits up long before came the meddling kids and their talking wolf. If the "fiend" accidentally killed one of the queerrats masquerading as humans, or a human mistook her for a queerrat from afar, it would be all over in an instant.
derp, I meant Kiroumaru, of course.
Most of the antagonists ITT did wrong shit while having mostly correct ideals and that's how propaganda works. I'm so tired of vaguely leftist villains who then go and kill random people just to instill in the person consuming media the idea that he's actually wrong.
Not a villain but Doomguy got transferred to Mars because he tried to frag his superior officer for ordering a war crime.>>13649
This shit goes back at least as far as Crime and Punishment.

Kane quite literally did nothing wrong.
Look at where Tiberium research was in C&C Renegade, Dr. Petrova is literally a superhuman powered by tiberium, and as of Tiberian Sun they're attempting to deploy the World Altering Missile to change literally everyone so that they're all incredibly powerful and capable of easily fighting off the Scrin harvesting team and hijacking their ships, which was supposed to become Command and Conquer's version of the Golden Path as humanity is forced to abandon its singular planet it resides on to begin taking the entire galaxy.
The whole point of the comic flew over your head if you actually think this
Maybe, I read it at work. But he's still better than the likes of Rorschach and the comedian.
Its sad. Aging is such a tragedy.
From the bunch of sociopaths and failures around him he is the more admirable. But frankly, if there is a point I missed too I would like to know it.
The whole pirate comic parallels Ozymandias, with the implication that his plan either won't work or is based on false premises.
On a grander level he's just taking the superhero idea of using violent force to protect the status quo to it's furthest extent.
Really, that retard that thinks it’s because of “muh boomers” instead of the capitalist system that caused it?
Tsukasa is an idealist retard who completely blames technology instead of capitalism like so many primitivist reactionaries.
Of course, but the way I like to think about it is that that's just because the story's writer is clearly a colossal musk fanboy-tier lib. There's no way the antagonist is ever gonna actually be good when he's written by his ideological enemies into a strawman.
Besides, I give the guy some slack on the basis that unlike literally every single primitivist tard in real life, this man actually is a colossal chad who can somehow kill lions with his bare hands.
Tsukasa is essentially the lib writer's idea of what revolutionary leftists are like. You'll see Tsukasa be literally anti-science, meanwhile the liberal order worshipping guy is the path to progress, which obviously couldn't be farther from the truth.
However the sheer audacity of the writer actually pushes me to still side with the retarded anarcho-primitivist, consider it a rebellion against the author's narrative itself.
>>16353>the liberal order worshipping guy
Which character would that be?
The manga missed a golden opportunity for some interesting drama and character development recently that really disappointed me.
the main character of course. he's pretty much the archetypical modern day "I FUCKING LOVE SCIENCE" type lib. Good intentioned, but also a total moron. I'm willing to bet the writer jerks off hard to elon musk.
The only hint of liberalism I've encountered is that weird thing they did with currency when recruiting that rich guy to be ship captain.
Interesting. You know I so want to write my own little AU of Dr. Stone where it turns out that not only living humans get petrified but also humans that were embalmed in a certain way. Perhaps a certain Revolutionary gets revived from their stone prison and leads the Russian people to the stars once again?
Would be interesting in that AU when Senku makes his radio and he does hear the Why-Man's voice but when pointing it to the northwest he hears a certain song playing on the radio after a interval signal plays…
Sorry posted version of the vids without sounds before, fixed them.
He's a liberal because he has no interest in making sure the new world will be any different from the capitalism of the old, he just wants to awaken everyone and return to status quo. The antagonist might be a brainless primitivist idiot, but at least he's got the right idea in the sense that he understands the fact that they literally have free reign to create a new kind of humanity from scratch without a bloody revolution instead of just returning to the old.
>>16366>You know I so want to write my own little AU of Dr. Stone where it turns out that not only living humans get petrified but also humans that were embalmed in a certain way.

So basically a twitter liberal, so definitely a villain who does everything wrong with false virtues, gotcha.
He was weaker than normal superman because plot and there were all sorts of dumb "muh communist dictatorship" garbage thrown in to make him look bad.
He's an attempted mass murderer who kills for fun essentially because he's utterly mad. He's not supposed to have "done nothing wrong" because the point he brought across was a conflict of falsely dichomatic ideology of humans being civilized vs being animals pretending
>>18454>toys aren't real<physical objects aren't there!

Sid did nothing wrong, he was just a kid. When he grew up he ended up as a garbage collector who apparently has grown out of his troubled/"psychopath" kid phase but still has a shitty life. However it's likely that they tried to frame this as some well-deserved fate for "hurting" some magical sentient toys that he rightfully thought were supposed to be inanimate, since toys try as hard as they can to remain motionless in front of humans to not break the illusion for some fucking reason
>>18466>toys aren't sentient beings
Not in our world perhaps (or to our awareness) but it is in Toy Story, and even if this held true, breaking and demeolishing toys for fun is unhealthy >t's likely that they tried to frame this as some well-deserved fate
I don't see how, when the point of the first movie was literally "play nice", they eve did this WITH Sids toys to teach him not to abuse theme. Moreover we don't actually know if it was Sid, it was an Easter Egg of a shirt. >for some fucking reason.
We don't know the reason but I expect it could just as well be the risk of scaring kids or provoking the adults. >>18462> an abusive alcoholic father that vent his frustration with his creations
I'm just going to point out that while that MAY be a reason, it is not an excuse. We don't see the Mother or Daughter acting remotely like him. >Muh models
Those aren't toys and are usually created with being destroyed in mind >see the obvious capitalist propaganda
Capitalism wants you to buy more and to buy more your possessions have to break or be devalued to make you want to possess more, promoting a fantasy that they're alive and you shouldn't hurt them is counter productive to that idea. Hell it is actually very leftist idea to try and make things last longer by using them carefully instead of utilizing things with wild abandon>first toy story was literally consumerism = good, diy = bad
That's literally wrong even from a marxist perspective, Sid isn't DIY, he's being destructive, buying things t not taking care of them properly.
Lastly It's Not That Deep People - It's a children's movie about living toys and a story about their hidden lives, Sid is an antagonist, not an outright villain, because it's not a story about Heroes and Villains, but about Old vs New and how that is a false dichotomy.

Sounds too autistic for me man. Toys aren’t alive unlike small animals. So it’s good for a kid to try pushing the play abilities of a toy to its limits. I’ve seen creative kids that cut soldier toys in half and added bits and bobs to it to create battle scenes. Or maybe convert some goofy toys into monsters and miniatures. Hell toys can still be alive and well afterwards. None of the toys he “killed” are truly dead, they’re still there as the movie showed.>Capitalism wants you to buy more and to buy more your possessions have to break or be devalued to make you want to possess more, promoting a fantasy that they're alive and you shouldn't hurt them is counter productive to that idea.
When has capitalism ever exist rationally? Reminder that Toy Story belong in the long line of bourgeois movies that anthromorphosize products for advertising. Also toys especially has another side of it as collectibles, they want you to think that they have more value than the cheap plastic that made it.>it is actually very leftist idea to try and make things last longer by using them carefully instead of utilizing things with wild abandon

>>18663>Toys aren’t alive unlike small animals
But when you're a child, playing pretend if part of it, and in Toy Story THEY ARE alive. > it’s good for a kid to try pushing the play abilities of a toy to its limits
Again, it's not breaking a toy while playing that's a problem, even if that sucks, it's just blowing shit up "for fun" that is fucked up. >creative kids that cut soldier toys in half and added bits and bobs to it to create battle scenes
But that's a battle scene, not just destroying toys for the fun of it >None of the toys he “killed” are truly dead
Literally half the toys he busted are only alive because they're put back together. He nuked a soldier at the start with nothing left and abandoned other toys in the mud where they lay forgotten. >When has capitalism ever exist rationally
Capitalism isn't the Joker; an insane person. Capitalism is a system based on the rational self-interest of the capitalist class and depends on the promotion of ideas of capitalist consumption. >oy Story belong in the long line of bourgeois movies that anthromorphosize products for advertising
1) children do this all the time without any advertizing. I was doing that to cars literally decades before Cars came out. It has been exploited into being about toys because it's created under capitalism and so must exploit culture to this purpose, thus the numerous Toy Story rip-offs that ARE just advertisements (such as the Emoji 'Movie')>as collectibles, they want you to think that they have more value than the cheap plastic
Again, both the second and first Toy Story movie promote messages against this with the main anatagonist being a collector and salesman of antiques and Andy giving away his toys at the end of the 3rd movie. >people who preserve things based on nothing but nostalgia are extremely reactionary
That's not what reactionary means and preserving/conserving something is not automatically reactionary, to assume otherwise is inane ideological dogmatism. >Muh material conditions for tropes

The point isn't that it exists or not, the point is that in the case of this film it doesn't fucking matter.

It's a romanticism about a sailor's tragic love of the sea, with magic and other insanity thrown in, anthropomorphizing it. Have you people fallen in love before and known how irrational it can be? >can’t get over a break up.
That's not what it was at all. Imagine you have a girlfriend or wife, who promises loyalty as you do your duty to her and the people of the sea, then you come back after waiting and working so long to find her gone, abandoning you and your sacrifice and betraying your love and efforts. Are you supposed to just accept it lying down like a dog? Or does this only matter if its the man who betrays the woman?
The idea that the worst hatred originates from love is a story as old as human society.
I'm just going to clarify since I realize I may not have gotten my point across and this has led to a bit of a derail in regards to Sid. Sid isn't a villain by human standards, and his behavior makes sense. He appears as a villain to the toys, because he is destructive on purpose. However he is not aware that the toys are alive and clearly his parents did not discipline him to value and cherish his play-things and not just arbitrarily break them. So my point about him being not an example of "nothing wrong" is merely that he did do something wrong, but isn't aware or fully responsible.
The franchise is, but people have only HEARD of it, but barely know about it outside of "humans appear in a society of apes who rule humans". Few people would even know who Doctor Zaius is today if you mention him without explicitly explaining where this character is from.

Amazing historical stupidity. Imagine being unable to understand the difference between porky socio-economic bullshit, and ordinary workers. Imagine thinking that the culture of African-Americans is 'nothing'. By your logic there is nothing about Africa except slavery nd violence too, or need I remind you who sold slaves to the slavers?
critical solidairty with comrade robtnik
>>18757>Zaheer the anarchist who literally did nothing but create a power vacuum and essentially enable utter misery.
Fuck no. >>18758
Outside of the SAT AM cartoon, Eggman is pretty much a humanitarian who realized that people and governments are impossible to rely on and so elected to become supreme leader with Cybersyn organization. His Grandfather was similar until he went batshit and created a moon-busting weapon.
he was on that sigma grindset
his design was fire
what is the economic system in the world of kung fu panda
why were the pandas genocided
Basically the economic system is generic feudal rice farming with no industry. The Peacock royal family had the only city with any major production and it was used for frivolities like fireworks. Their son (Shen) wanted to make his parents proud, make utility of this innovation and spread this to all China, but to do so he needed to conquer it and establish industrial production. The Pandas were farmers but it was predicted that a "warrior of black and white" would beat Shen (basically it was a self-fulfilling prophecy thing).
kung fu panda is feudalist apologia
link to debunk in avatar thread pls
…. just open the Avatar thread and CTRL+F the term Kuvira
On second thought there is a lot of discussion there (and even more that discussed hinduism in depth got deleted because of Melon-faggot, dammit)https://leftypol.org/hobby/res/2562.html#8953https://leftypol.org/hobby/res/2562.html#2889
Most of Kora’s villains are just a liberal flanderization of the ideologies oppose the them:>the equalists are communists but hypocrites >the black lotus are anarchists but retarded>the earth empire are fascist ethnic supremacists that are good but “went too far” (because the guys that created the show love Israel)
Notice that the only ideology that got portrayed in a positive light is fascism.
I mean both are my posts lol>>18909>fascism<in positive light intentionally
I already argued about it not being fascism before. Kuvira isn't fascism at all, she wasn't installing private interests or promoting ethnic discrimination, she was uniting under a collectivist rule a country, at worst she was a nazbol, though there is an entire reddit post made by a comrade, which explicitly argues and explains her parallels to Stalin.
>>18909>Kay And Skittles
>>18912>I mean both are my posts lol
thank butt rude
Take this "muh South" shit to /leftypol/
i don't get butthurt with idpol over based rednecks
I'm not against rednecks, retard, I'm the one who made the post on Song of the South and told Sherman-poster to fuck off, this just isn't the thread for discussing the South.
He's an antagonist, which can be, but is not necessarily the same as a villain. Ergo he's did nothing wrong and was never a villain to begin with.
>>18944>this just isn't the thread for discussing the South.
tell that the other user, my post was just about rednecks lel
why is this movie about the director and his mother
It's more about the struggle to not be a failson and what makes a man worthy of respect in his community but every artist weaves a bit of themselves in their pieces
Perseus and Bell were comrades

Based Trips, go Stalin's Son!
The point is that building the future on a lie makes it dangerously fragile if/when the lie is exposed. Thinking you can just solve the balance of powers problem is childish. This is reflected when Ozy asks Dr. Manhattan if he did the right thing "in the end" and the response is "You don't get it. Nothing ever ends." He didn't create a solution, just stuck his finger in the leaky dam (at the cost of millions of lives
). And it's sealed at the end when Rorschach's journal (documenting everything) arrives at a newspaper, because like someone with a working brain he sent it off before going with Nite Owl to confront Ozy.
Raven is just incredibly based whenever they get full reign of a project. Singularity was even better, a shame that it’s too short.
Yep. Honestly its one of the best AU storylines.
