Is Magneto a Hero or Villain?
Many superhero films follow a basic dichotomy, the split between good versus evil. The good is represented by the superhero and the bad represented by the villain. The notion of good versus evil works in comics because it helps people unite behind a hero. It is universally agreed that Superman is a hero; no one will be rooting for Superman to fail when they are watching a Superman film. Superman is helping the city of metropolis because he’s a hero, he has no secret or dark motive behind his action, and he’s helping everyone because that’s simply what heroes do. The same applies to villains; no one wants the Joker to succeed in his plans because he is blatantly evil. He is causing destruction and killing people because he loves chaos, he has no secret agenda for the audience to get behind or sympathize with. The Joker, like most villains, is an agent of evil and that’s what makes him a villain.
