Let’s assume that Rockerduck has awakened and now he’s after Ducks, how will he fight them? And how to beat him?
I’m leaving entire shady F.O.W.L. stuff, it’s confrontation time!
His hand-to-hand combat capabilities are…
But this is fine, he is not the fighter, he is rich, he is the boss, really mean boss. - remember that for later
There is always plenty of Eggheads in disposal.
They will serve perfectly as the punching bags for the heroes.
He has zombie-like bodyguard?
…well that’s cute.
Rockerduck might not be the richest duck in the world, but still, he is pretty wealthy, and mean to anyone who’s not.
Bombie doesn’t like that.
Jokes aside, if Bombie doesn’t shows up, they might need Gizmoduck to fight Franken-Jeeves…
…who, at this point, is an amalgamation of Jaws (James Bond franchise) and the Frankenstein’s Monster, I bet he can take some serious punch.
But how fight gonna look like?
I’m predicting that Rockerduck gonna use Eggheads and Franken-Jeeves to slow down the heroes, while he will try to run away with the treasure or whatever they will fight for (for example: deed to Duckburg) .
… or just to stay alive, if Bombie eventualy decides to show up…
This is a really rough sketch of the villain in my story. (Cide)
I think one of the reasons that fandoms typically tend to love the villain instead of the hero is a matter of expectations. We don’t expect the villain to be a perfect or even a typically good person. Heroes we hold to a higher standard because that’s where they’re supposed to be. They’re supposed to be better than this and we expect them to be good. Villains, our expectations are lower, even apologetic.
Chef themed villains be like: Have a taste of my Creme Cruel-ée! And for a drink…. Cruel Aid!!!
Season 2 actually makes some important notes about power and greed, look at Unalaaq and Varrick’s behaviour. Unalaaq is power-hungry but has his brother in the way of the Northern throne, so, what does he do? He frames him as a war criminal. Ozai tried that a lot more hamfistedly than Unalaaq did but the fandom is a lot readier to let that go. We see a man so bent on his quest for power and control, he betrays his brother, his niece and even his own son. Eska had to choose between her now all-powerful father or her brother. We can see the consequences of one man’s lust for power here.
Then if we look at Varrick. He seems like an eccentric entrepreneur, which he is. But he’s also purely motivated by greed. He incites the rebellion in the South because his profit was on the line. “If you can’t make money during a war, then you can’t make money at all”. He starts making propaganda films about the war in the South and plans to kidnap the president in an attempt to sway popular opinion and force the United Forces’ hand. All the while, Asami’s business is poised to profit hugely off the war Varrick created, he starts hiring gangsters to raid her warehouses, forcing her close to bankruptcy. He then bails her out and buys a large share in her company, so he can profit off the war he created. We see one man put the lives of thousands on the line for personal gain.
Season 2 takes a good look at identity crises as well. When Korra is seperated from Raava and Raava is killed, she loses her connection to her past lives, prompting an identity crisis. She was always the Avatar, the reincarnation of Aang, destined to keep the world in balance and in peace. She realised, after looking at Wan’s life that Wan became a hero not beacuse of what he was, the fusion between man and light spirit, master of all elements etc but who Wan was, a kind, selfless man, who only wanted equality and fairness for all and peace between humans and the spirits. Korra realises that above all else, she is Korra. The fiery, loyal, impulsive girl who had mastered three elements aged 17. The pro-bender. The girl who saved Republic City from Amon. The girl who on her first day in Republic City, stood up to a squad of gangsters and won. She realised that there was more to her than just being the bridge between worlds, that she was Korra and nobody could take that from her.
We also see the consequences of favouritism within the home in Aang’s children. Bumi has a complex about being the firstborn of the legendary Aang and Katara, but Bumi can’t bend anything. At all. His arc could have been about accepting that he was Bumi before he was anything else.
Kya is similar. She inherited her mother’s water-bending, and, while Aang may not have had much time for her, at least Katara favoured her.
And then there’s Tenzin. Tenzin stopped Aang from being the last airbender. Aang put all his hopes and dreams on Tenzin and brought him all over the world, just the two of them, leaving the rest of their family behind. Aang didn’t manage to raise Tenzin perfectly though, Tenzin has a huge inferiority complex about not being able to go to the Spirit World and fears about letting the Air Nation die out. Tenzin’s arc is to let go of this idea that he must be the perfect copy of his father and that he is Tenzin, not Aang junior.
And that brings me to my last point. We see the origins of the Avatar explained. We know from ATLA and the “The Rise of Kyoshi” comics that while the Avatar may sometimes make bad or questionable moral choices, their goal is to ultimately bring balance to the world. We know they’re always the good guy. So when we are shown Wan’s story and see Raava and Vaatu fighting in a battle between chaos and order or good and evil as it’s called in the show (personally chaos and order makes more sense). Wan is literally the peace keeper between humans and the spirits at first and later the “bridge between worlds” and peace keeper for men. So when people argue that the Raava/Vaatu origin story is too binary, that the Avatar should be more mixed between good and evil, well then they’re forgetting the point of the Avatar’s existence, to bring balance. They should have a problem with the whole franchise then, and not the srcond season of TLOK alone.

have people never listened to disney villain songs
honestly they fucking slap but then when i ask about it all i get is ‘uhhhh shiny i guess’
i’m not kidding everyone says shiny
Time to reveal my favorite papercraft artwork that I’ve made for the Illumicrate mug series! Featured in their June 2020 box! Based on the Villains Duology by Victoria Schwab!
I always love working in Victoria’s aesthetic - playing with a limited palette is a great color exercise. Fun fact! I created the background by caking on layers of gesso and acrylic, then carving through it with a steak knife to create the ‘wainscoting’ effect; as if carved by the knives present in the papercraft.
❤️❤️❤️Vengeful Spoilers below! ❤️❤️❤️
This papercraft was such a no-brainer. The concept just flowed out so easily, even though the contexts of the character’s symbolism are few sentences in passing. Victor blantantly being skewered by the knives are very blunt representantions of the episodes of severe pain he experiences throughout Vengeful. Eli’s was the most obscure, referencing his father carving 'new feathers into the torn wings of Eli’s back.’ Both boys struggling to make their way toward Marcella, who’s balancing on a bed a knives like a boss and then wisping them away without fuss.
Bonus doodle I made while relistening to the series for this piece - from the scene in Vicious that always sends chills and thrills down my spine.
Why are villains always the fun characters? I’m not a bad person I just like the bad people…
It’s not my fault they’re the fun ones
They are not the F.O.W.L., but they still are villains, and the were united ones.
‘The Family’ from ‘Glomtales’, they failed miserably, but there is still a potencial.
I mean alone they are more like a joke compared to F.O.W.L., but together…
We might gonna get something like DC has in their universe: two major evil organizations, one well organized and calculating, like The Legion of Doom (F.O.W.L.), the other one chacotic and destructive, like The Injustice League (’The Family’).
Last time we saw them was in season 2, and since then only Mark Beaks showed up. Also Don Karnage is on the poster for season 3.
Even Magica was nowhere to be seen at Funso’s.
Is it possible that they stayed together since season 2?
Maybe they will show up in the near future.
Let’s look at members (old ones and potential new ones):
Magica de Spell
And their henchmans:
Together they are more capable of spreading havoc, spoiling plans of heroes and F.O.W.L. at the same time, and so far that’s the best thing they can do to remain a threat to be reckoned with.
Glomgold is out of ‘The Family’ for obvious resons.
The name of the organization is still work-in-progress stage, i’m open for suggestions.
Maleficent, about Grimhilde: She’s seen me naked a thousand times…
Aurora: Bad, bad images in my head!
do i always relate to the villains in stories bc of queer coding or bc as a child i was somehow along the way convinced that i am Bad bc i stopped being the kid my parents wanted?
