The choice of the 100 Greatest Villains is very parochial and chauvinistic becuase it only refers USA main villains.
Miguel, it is easy to criticize when someone else does the work. Why didn't you offer your alternate suggestions and subject them to our critical comments. It is typically a parochial viewpoint that doesn't recognize a successful mainstream and makes empty complaints. This is very macho because it criticizes in this unsupported fasion.
Mainstream, especially wen it is successful is always wrong. And in our sexually amorphous days there is nothing wrong with macho attitudes.
Thjere are more interesting villains in the world. Study Universal History,
One example : Marquis de Sade. Another: Count Vladislav Drakkul.
Suggestion: History of Infamy, by Jorge L. Borges.
