Informative and in depth debate and history type documentary of D.C.'s bad boys!
6 August 2016 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

Everyone always loves a villain as a bad guy is always more interesting and fun than a good guy or hero. And if you are a D.C. comics fan you know the universe has many from "The Joker", "Bane" "Lex Luthor", "The Riddler", "Catwoman", "Harley Quinn" and many others. And this documentary includes footage and clips from comics, movies, cartoons, with interviews from D.C. writers about the history and start of many of these bad peoples, as is debated is the theory of as to why each villain is bad and why they mesh well with a hero, explored is the past that made each so evil and interesting and discussed among comic people and those educated is the future of the villain and how it pertains to the D.C. universe, overall good informative film that's a must watch if you like D.C. comics, characters, and movies as you might just find something out about a villain that you didn't know!
