Villains, within the sphere of television and film, are as essential as the protagonists they battle, but sometimes the ‘truth’ stares us in the face without us realising.

Hear me out and let me be real with you, BUZZ fam…
Looking at these opinions objectively, there is a lot of merit to these arguments, even if the creators deny or only hint on the possibility of these so-called good guys, exploiting our predisposition to believe their narrative while they ‘masquerade’ shamelessly, silently as the ‘true villains’.

Killmonger vs Azzuri
A ‘Krabby’ paradox
*screams in I KNEW IT!*
HTGAW Plot Armour
Misogyny rearing its ugly head

*seethes in Season 8 trauma*
*The views of this tweet do not reflect my agnostic status or do I seek to impose on my Xtian readers, but…*
Well, BUZZ fam? Is there sufficient weight for us to trust these hot takes or are Twitter users just peddling their agendas?
