    Default Villain Envy: If You Could Swap Places with a Villain, Who Would You Choose?

    All of these discussions of mantle changes got me to thinking. What if you were given the chance to be any villain in the MU, living their lives from day one to current, possessing not only their histories, but other attributes as well. The only thing that you would keep would be a sliver of your own personality and deeply subconscious knowledge that you aren't really the original. Which villain would you pick to take their place and why?

    Kingpin. Then I would transfer all of his wealth into my own bank account, and escape to some paradise island once I'm back in my real body.

    Hela. I would make Hel a paradise. Everyone would want to die, giving me ultimate power.

    Hobgoblin, especially in his Axis persona/modus operandi.

    Hmmm....maybe someone immortal, or nearly so, like Enchantress or Morgan le Fey.

    Magneto, then work to disband the Quiet Council and end the Krakoan cult.

    Does the Stranger count as a villain? He's got an entire 'laboratory world' full of neat stuff that I'd love to just explore.

    Dormammu would be another one with an entire realm of his own, far removed from earthly concerns. Then again, he's got some close-to-peers with sinister intent (like sister Umar), so that might be a dangerous place to live in, lacking his familiarity with exactly *how* he maintains control (or the willingness to ruthlessly tyrannize the Faltinian populace)...

    But what if this is a permanent swap? You'd be embezzling from yourself.

    Is there an existing villain that aptly fits that role for you?

    I'd be Doctor Doom, because when I'm too lazy to go to the store, or to work, or basically too lazy to do anything, I'd just send a Doombot.

    Interesting idea. But I guess if you make it a pleasant hereafter, I'll have to stop telling people that I dislike to "Go to Hel."

    I tend to see the Stranger as one of those cosmic types that answers to his own code and purpose. From the perspective of lesser beings, though, sure, sometimes he does engage in immoral and untoward behavior -- like kidnapping sentient beings without their consent for his scientific experiments.

    I would think the Only Gentleman thief in marvel would be The Fox. I could be wrong though.
    Favorite teams. Alpha Flight, Avengers, Fantastic Four, West Coast Avengers, Justice Society of America, Legion of Superheroes.
