Most of us love villains. Even if we root against them, deep down we can’t get enough of their nefarious little schemes and their incessant plotting. Done correctly, they can be the most memorable things about superhero/ gangster/ crime/ high school movies. But it’s time we took a step back and realized these sociopaths, murderers, assholes, douche bags, bitches and bloodsuckers don’t act alone. Behind every good villain, there’s a great henchman.
