Illusion On-Demand's Top 20 Villains
According to Wikipedia, "Illusion On-Demand is an American VOD Video On Demand cable TV network focused on science fiction and fantasy programming. Illusion launched nationally in October 2007 with a special Halloween lineup. The regular programming consists of 21 shows and content blocks" I'd never heard of it, but while killing time checking out free programs on my cable box, I stumbled upon a 21 minute program counting down the "network's" top comic book bad guys. The production values were YouTube low, mostly static images (pulled directly off sites like Comic Vine and Wikipedia) with generic screen script and extremely repetitive bland (Creative Commons?) rawk music playing. Then, cut to a chubby middle-aged guy in a nondescript, poorly lit room talking noise. Oh wait-- that's Spider-Man writer Dan Slott. My bad. I bothered to check because I recognized the guy who followed him in the brief pathetic improvisational explicating upon the individual malcontents. Anyway, this sort of thing is how I gets me kicks, so here's their(?) picks... 20. The Kingpin (presented by Dan Slott) 19. P'Gell (presented by Jimmy Palmiotti) 18. Bullseye (presented by Dan Slott) 17. Poison Ivy (presented by Afua Richardson) 16. Doctor Octopus (presented by Justin Gray and Dan Slott) 15. Skrulls (presented by Dan Slott) 14. Two-Face (presented by Dan Slott and Jimmy Palmiotti) 13. Venom (presented by Sonya Paz and Afua Richardson) 12. Sentinels (presented by Jimmy Palmiotti and Dan Slott) 11. Catwoman (presented by Afua Richardson and Amanda Conner) 10. Green Goblin (presented by Sonya Paz) 09. Red Skull (presented by Jimmy Palmiotti and Dan Slott) 08. Dark Phoenix (presented by Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner) 07. Darkseid (presented by Jimmy Palmiotti) 06. Nazis (presented by Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti and Dan Slott) 05. Magneto (presented by Afua Richardson) 04. Doctor Doom (presented by Justin Gray, Jimmy Palmiotti and some redhead) 03. Galactus (presented by Jimmy Palmiotti, Dan Slott, and Arthur Suydam) 02. Lex Luthor (presented by Dan Slott, Afua Richardson and some redhead) 01. Joker (presented by Amanda Conner, Afua Richardson, Sonya Paz, Justin Gray, and Jimmy Palmiotti) Well... that was dull and amateurish.
