Compare And Contrast Two Villains of Favorite Tv Shows And/or Movies.Vanessa Paredes ID: 57077113Penn Foster College
The bad man, who concocts evil schemes to injure or destroy others, is a villain. It is a figure you will see in a lot of tales. Despite the villain’s best intentions, they often end up causing more harm than good. As in the olden days, the damsel-in-distress required the hero to rescue her from the villain’s wrath. It may be a guy or a whole town for the damsel-in-distress. There are some differences between male and female archetypes. The Originals is not just more than any adolescent drama. The plot is gripping and tackles a familiar subject in a new light. You never know what will happen next in this program since everyone has unique skills. My favorite thing about this series is that even when the characters become wicked, you can still see that they are human beings. They have gone through so much, and I cannot help but like them. Villains play an essential role in films and literature books.
Throughout the movie, The Originals and various villains have greatly made the movie interesting as it turned out to be (Croop, 2013). The two main villains are Marcel Gerard and Dahlia. Through the films, it is clear that the two villains greatly sprouted the attention of the main characters through their numerous dubious deeds. It is also clear that the two brought the most significant impact on the television scenes through the movie.

Villains are always involved in crime. Marcel, one of the main villains in the movie, was incredibly involved with various deeds that saw people die in the film at hand. He was made extremely powerful through a magic elixir Marcel ingested turned him into a strong hybrid vampire with powers beyond Klaus’s. Like a wolf, his bite is lethal to vampires, but it cannot be healed with the blood of his mate, Klaus. Elijah took his heart out, yet he still lived. He is now the most indestructible person on The Originals (Croop. 2013). Marcel’s new hybrid status and relationship with Vincent make him the most potent danger to the Mikaelson family. Marcel bit Elijah and Kol towards the end of the season, resulting in their deaths and removing Klaus from power. New Orleans has a new king: Marcel. After the season, Klaus makes the ultimate sacrifice for his family. Freya devised a scheme to spare Marcel’s family after they were all poisoned, and he was out for vengeance. She cast a spell on herself, Kol, Rebekah, and Elijah, to put everyone into a magical sleep condition that would prevent the poison from taking hold of them. However, to continue to exist, they must be connected to a living person via their blood. Instead of murdering Marcel, Klaus tricked him into stabbing him with a knife, which would cause him to suffer indefinitely. Now that Marcel has him imprisoned, Klaus is doomed to an eternity of pain and anguish.
Dahlia, the second villain, was also involved in various death incidents in the movie. One of the greatest weapons that dahlia had was the power to come up with numerous supernatural deeds that led to the death of many. Esther’s children were endangered by Dahlia when she kidnapped Dahlia’s niece and threatened to kidnap all of Esther’s kids. She is a devout witch who thinks having children is absurd (Croop, 2013). Even though she assisted Esther in becoming pregnant, she was doing it for herself. She may not have always been this cruel since Esther showed faith in her by asking for her assistance and did not expect the price Dahlia asked to be as high as it was. Cruelty was also evident in her memories of her time with Freya. As a witch, Dahlia was always in a position to do anything she ever wanted, regardless of who she dealt with.
She enjoyed seeing other people suffer. Throughout the movie, both Marcel and Dahlia are pleased with the aspects of making people suffer (IMDb, 2013). On Marcel’s side, the nature of making people suffer could be seen when he took Klaus captive. Marcel took Klaus to a prison beneath his house, daggered him, and ensured he stayed alone for quite a long time. The experience Klaus was not pleased as he was denied the chance to spend time with his beloved daughter, his friends, and the mother of his child. On Dahlia’s side, her aspects of making people suffer could be seen when she took away Freya from his family many years ago. Through her deeds, she was able to keep a child away from her family for very many years. Additionally, apart from taking away Freya from her family, Dahlia used Freya as a channel to perform various magical performances that made her stronger day by day.
Some villains can have some good in them. Through the movie, it is clear that Marcel was still a good man and was also up to doing some good. This can be seen in the fourth season of the movie, where he tries to protect his town from various evil deeds. Marcel joined forces with other vampires and was able to keep his town safe from danger. Additionally, through the season, Marcel was not involved in any murder crime, but all he ever wanted was peace to prevail in his city.
Furthermore, Marcel began to believe that nationalistic and ethnic difficulties are becoming more prevalent in cities across the globe, and the subject of managing inter-group conflict is of great importance (IMDb, 2013). Moreover, it is significant because many experts today see the town as an ever less territorial response to the challenge of human political and economic structure in a world where ethnic founder and democracy are becoming increasingly crucial concerns for sub-national administration. Numerous towns throughout the globe are prone to violent cross violence and racial or nationalist divisions, which is concerning. In these cities and civilizations, ethnic identification and patriotism combine to produce universal rights, independence, or even territorial secession. When diversity becomes political, it poses a threat to the moral foundation of the city, as the phrase goes. As nationalists work to establish and defend a democratic structure that embodies and protects their particular group features, the political authority of multinational cities may be challenged.
Furthermore, the transformed Marcel believed that change is a process and a manifestation of society’s response to an unsteady and ever-shifting external environment. Urban interventions, in contrast to mediated political accords, have more tangible and apparent consequences on people’s lives. As leading execution frontiers of new democratic principles and methods, they may express early in cultural shifts how corporate power, common good, ethnic enthusiasm, and citywide necessities are to combine under a new administration.
However, according to the movie, Dahlia had no good intentions, and neither did she do any act that showed aspects of peace or love (IMDb, 2013). According to her, “What you do not know is that darkness does not begin. To make it, the light is out. Let me be clear about this: You could not do anything to fix me. In your eyes, I saw my family’s sister, who had converted my heart to concrete every time I looked at you. I want to use that stone to wreak havoc on her whole family.” Dahlia displayed that she can never have any good in her through various instances. Dahlia’s’ malicious abilities are often considered to be acquired via training or heredity; however, there is no universal answer to this topic. There are two prevalent explanations for this: either the witch’s ability to do damage is intrinsic in her, or she uses magical materials to accomplish her purpose. One may use the arcane energies in material items to put one’s abilities into action when an intrinsic and internal force energizes one. Society’s views on whether or not witchcraft is an intrinsic power sometimes disagree on whether it appears as a result of the will and acts of the individual involved, occasionally clearly against their desire, or if it exercises control over their will and behavior.
Villains play an important role in films and literature books. According to many critics, villains are the evil individuals in a story who possess all of the negative character traits that anybody could imagine. Most of the time, villains are not bad people; rather, they act in a certain manner due to heroes’ actions or as a result of external factors that have influenced their psychological well-being. Even though criminals in films and literature often get the credit they deserve, there would be no need for a hero if there were no enemies to contend with. If given the opportunity, I would love to play a supervillain in a film because villains provide suspense and interest to a plot, which I find appealing. Villains have an important part in almost every work of literature. We need the villain to understand the hero’s good actions fully. Without the villain, we would not be able to comprehend the dangers and difficulties that a community or person confronts, and we would not have anybody to hold responsible for all our woes. As with how the hero’s goodness serves as a solution to the villain’s wickedness, the villain’s nefarious techniques serve as a counterweight to both the hero’s purity and characteristics.
