Beware! This week a criminal comes to our fair city that has no equal!
That’s not entirely true. It’s not like I’m omnipotent. Besides, must you refer to me as a criminal? And I wouldn’t really call this city “fair.” - CC
Well, maybe not. But the whole Villains for Kids posts are supposed to be done in that whole Golden Age of Comics, larger than life heroes and villains, radio serial genre. So try to play along… OK?
I’ll try, but I won’t promise anything. You haven’t really given me much to go on. Nope, not much at all… – CC
OK. Let’s try again…
<whisper> Let’s not and say we did. Probably make things easier for the whole three or four actual readers of this blog. Are we just posting another something so spammers have a chance to try to get links to their sites here? Those guys are the real criminals… though not very smart they are persistent.- CC
I heard that. Here’s an idea, how about we stay on topic and do a post about a villain for kid’s role-playing?
If you insist… not like anyone will ever read any of this. – CC
<sigh> OK, from the top…
Stand back good citizens of our beloved city, a villain so negative, so opposing, so dastardly…
Well that’s pretty unflattering. – CC
Do YOU want to do this?
Oh no Mr. Narrator, you’re doing such a fine job. How could I possibly interfere with your fine skills in introducing me? – CC
Was that sarcasm?
More like honesty. – CC
Look, just go over there and wait for your cue.
But I don’t like the lighting over there. Besides, if I go over there you won’t have the benefit of my insight on how this should work. I need to be here so I can correct any obviously glaring errors in your scripted introduction. I mean, come on! What’s this say? “Nefarious! Negative! Evil-Doer!” Does that sound very nice? Not to me it doesn’t. – CC
That’s it. I quit. Either someone muzzle him or I’m out of here.
Hey! No need to get hostile. I’m just trying to help. This blog could use something interesting to get some comments from someone other than that Mark guy and his DIY metal and leather fixation. It’s not like anyone ever comes to this blog for anything Earth-shattering. Have you read some of the stuff Kevin thinks is worth posting? – CC
You want to help me? Then you do this. I’m taking this week off. Last week Ego Boy claims he can do this better than me. Now this week Captain Contrary does everything in his power to contradict me. Heck, even The Drama Queen was easier to work with; all she did was demand top billing and a larger trailer. I’m taking my vacation early. Next week I’ll be back to introduce The Odor Eater! Here you go Captain Contrary. You do your own intro.
Geez, what a grump. Can’t take the slightest bit of constructive criticism. We’re probably better off without him. OK, here we go:
Sometime this week, or perhaps not, the city (more like a large town perhaps) might face the weak prowess of me, Captain Contrary… then again, maybe it won’t. Can’t assume too much and jump the gun on this one. No need to assemble the heroes this time; I’m not really much of a villain. It’s not like my powers are all that great really. I could probably easily be beaten without much effort. It’s not like I can contradict anything you think or know. Nope, not like I can change the very fabric of reality to negate anything. No need to get worked up over my activities… besides, they’re not all that evil or nefarious. So take a cue from the narrator and take the week off. I’ll keep an eye on things… or maybe I won’t.
And for the record, The Odor Eater might not be next week’s villain either…
