Honor Among Villains.

I’ve been debating this all night and would like to open it up for comments. Do more bad guys have a certain code of honor like Captain Cold? Or are they more likely to stab each other in the back for any reason like Cobra Commander vs Destro vs Serpentor vs Zartan?

  1. I’ve always enjoyed villains like Capt.Cold. Now if you take Bad Guys like the Kingpin, Magneto, Thanos, Loki, Lex Luthor, Mister Freeze, Ra’s al Ghul all had some form of code to follow. I would even go as far as to say the Joker had a code that he followed.
    Now Bad Guys like Cobra Commander, Destro, Serpentor, Zartan are all power hungry. Galactus, Apocalypse, Doctor Doom, Red Skull fall into the same field as well..
    I going to say it’s a 60-40 type of thing really..
    But then you have your “pee on” villains like Sabertooth, Bullseye, Carnage, Rhino, Juggernaut. As well as well Bane, Backlash, Harlet Quinn, Doomsday. Just to name a few.

  2. I personally like the idea of the levels of evil as illustrated by TTRPGs, like lawful evil, neutral evil, and chaotic evil. Someone like Darth Vader as lawful evil, xenomorphs as neutral evil and Joker as chaotic evil.
