    If you could become evil and take on a new role, what would you be?

    I've always thought it would be fun to be like Dillinger or Capone, running an entire underworld and living fat. But it would also be awesome to be a James Bond-esque man leading an army of henchmen and having fantastic execution methods.

    My co-worker said he'd be Darth Vader, which makes me disappointed that I didnt' include it on the list. The ability to kill people by looking at them, a menacing breathing voice and awesome flying skills, plus an army to boot. DV rocks.

    Great question....I suppose that if you were a super villain with superhuman powers and strength, the rest of the choices could just sorta fall into line.

    Well, you have to assume that if you have superpowers, there are going to be good guys with those powers.

    Hmmmm, good point.

    Still, awfully tempting to be more than just your everyday, run-of-the-mill mortal criminal.

    "As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster."

    Being a gangster initially sounds cool, but they all die horrific deaths, either getting the swiss cheese treatment from a Tommy gun, or two point-blank to the chest and one to the head.

    Supervillains, on the other hand, never die. They just go to absurdly designed maximum security prisons where they plot their next escape and strategy for world domination. Plus, they usually hang out with at least one buxom female who likes to be bad. :eek:

    I'd sooooo be a supervillian. There just aren't that many female ones. I'd stand out :D

    I could see you as a supervillain. What would be your name? And your plot for world domination?

    You promise to wear one of those skin-tight latex catwoman outfits?

    Not sure about my name, but I think I'm implanting mind control devices inside balls (sports equipment ones. Get you minds out of the gutter.)

    I'll take name suggestions though.

    And yes, AQB, I'll wear a catwoman outfit, although I don't think I'd look all that good in it. I don't have Michelle Pfeiffer's body.
