Diabolical! 15 Great Geek Villains from Movies and TV


I have to admit, I love creating galleries like these as much as people seem to dig commenting and bickering over them. Hollywood’s given us a lot of bad guys over the last century of film and television: Freddy Krueger, Michael Myers and Goofy (say what you will but I don’t trust that frigging dog) to name a few. While all that hacking, slash and aw shucks might get the job done for most of the population, many of us demand more from our antagonists: We demand they be geeky, intelligent and full of nerd-rage—just like the folks that watch them. Maximum PC asked that I pull a gallery of 15 such characters together for them this week, and being the raging film nerd that I am, I was more than happy to do so. You can take a peek at the results here.
