Zeus No Holds Barred Hulk Hogan

#67: Zeus. No Holds Barred is not a good movie. That said, there was a time that I devoured everything WWF, and Hulk Hogan was my absolute hero. Zeus was a great villain for him, and Tom “Tiny” Lister’s portrayal was terrifying, even if he didn’t really talk much. I was stoked that he made appearances in the ring after the movie was released, and highly amused by his turn as the President of Earth in The Fifth Element.

I Am More Than Man, More Than Life… I Am A GOD!

Skeletor Masters of the Universe

#65: Skeletor. From the film, Masters of the Universe, Frank Langella’s portrayal of Skeletor was a bright spot in this largely forgettable film that I loved as a kid. He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was one of my very favorite cartoons, and while I did enjoy the movie, it was not nearly as faithful to the source material as I would have liked. Even at a young age, I clearly had the soul of an internet commenter. This reimagining of Skeletor was still effective, however, regardless of the lack of the nasally, high voice and the fact that he wasn’t just a floating, hooded skull with a massively ripped body.

Tears In Rain

Roy Batty Blade Runner Rutger Hauer

Day 61: Roy Batty. There’s some disagreement over whether Rutger Hauer’s replicant character from Blade Runner is actually a villain, as his quest is at heart, one meant to right the wrongs that have been done to his kind. The existential questions of humanity, mortality and morality are intrinsic to the character, and the argument could be made that his actions are justifiable. That said, he’s a killer robot. So: villain.

There Can Be Only One

Kurgan Highlander

Day 60: The Kurgan. Played by Clancy Brown (who was the voice of Two-Face in Batman: The Animated Series), The Kurgan from Highlander is just an animal. Terrifying from start to finish. No redeemable qualities. No backstory to humanize him. All he wants is immortality, and he’s embraced all of the murder that goes along with the Race.
