CLS Videos doesn’t want you to forget about the bad guys. Without them, there’d be no story. There’d be no action. No challenge, no battle, no reason for the ordinary leads to become good.

That’s why they put together a menacingly fun tribute called “Meet the Villain,” a who’s-who of the crude, the bad, and the ugly. Picked from your favorite flicks, watch the sinister eye-slides and evil smiles of the fictional world’s worst.

It features the classics: Darth Vader, Hannibal Lecter, The Shark. It’s got the supervillains: Magneto, Loki, The Joker. And it has every sinister man, woman, and robot in between, from the Wicked Witch of the West to HAL 9000.

Today, we salute you, wrong-doers and criminal masterminds of the silver screen, because without you, we’d have no reason to root for the heroes.
