    The Matrix's Agent Smith! Hugo Weaving's delivery is so awesome in this film. "Misssster Anderson..."


Oh man! Absolutely!

    "Son of Jor-El, kneel before Zod!" Gawd, Terrence Stamp is every kind of awesome. \:\)


Another great choice!

    Oh, and Chris Claremont's Magneto at this time was amazing. Watching him go from villain to anti-hero was great to read. Honestly? I wish Magneto had died before he became a bad guy again.


Me too. Once a villain has been around for decades, what else is he going to do? Try to conquer the world for the 46th time? Some sort of redemption is the only interesting thing to do with the guy. The trouble with Magneto is, some writers would make him not merely a criminal but needlessly cruel and petty. Portrayals like that will make a redemption story seem fake. I prefer Magneto (and Doctor Doom) when written as honorable men.
