Backstories don't always make a character interesting. No, they don't. They really don't. Remember this great line from Scream? Well, I don't really believe in motives... I mean did Norman Bates have a motive? Did we ever find out why Hannibal Lecter like to eat people? DON'T THINK SO! See, it's a lot more scarier when there's no motive. I don't care about a villain's childhood, daddy issues, war trauma, what-the-hell-ever. Just give me a villain who has a plan, challenges the hero, cackles and gloats a bit, then gets defeated and there's much rejoicing (yay). Is that really asking so much? I hate that trend but I don’t think it’s even possible with her unless it’s 100% prequel. Even Once Upon A Time didn’t try to excuse away Cruella’s villainy. They attempted to redeem every other Disney villain including rapists and murderers but left her a sociopath. Edited August 25, 2019 by Dani 7 Link to comment
