      These were not villains. Most of them just wanted revenge and rightfully so. They re antagonists at most since the protagonists are the ones who wronged them in some way.

    2 Thumbs down for not including Killmonger. Magneto, Killmonger, Koba and Magua are not villains in my opinion. Batman said it best " every villain is a hero in their origin story ". Which is deep as hell. One because if you apply this saying to each so called villain I named. They are only considered villains because in their crusade for justice they upsetting an established order. Two each one of these people were victims. If your kid was being bullied in school wouldn't you tell them to fight back? And for those calling Killmonger racist, how? Prejudice yeah, but racist? But is prejudice justifiable? How is he any different then Magneto? They both were oppressed by other white people. Even tho Killmonger wanted to fight against any oppressor it seems like that's the only people upset by him. Killmonger even had Wikandans kill his father. But I guess the common theme in a lot of these movies are making white people reflect on the sins of their ancestors. And I can see how that would suck. That being said growing up a minority in the real world and having to watch videos in high school of white people throwing bricks at people of color who are just walking down the street sucks too. Having a fictional character go out for vengeance for real world issues is crazy good. Magneto is based off Malcolm X.

    Syndrome did not have a justifiable reason. Mr Incredible was just trying to protect him since he was just a kid with a dangerous obsession. He went on to kill innocent other superheroes to perfect his revenge on Mr Incredible. Then put the public at risk just to fulfill his dream. Releasing his inventions would've put people in danger if they fell into the wrong hands or people used them in irresponsible ways. Which we all know would've happened.

    Yeah yeah yeah, I know I overthink things too much and it's just an animated kids movie.

    No Watchmojo you're wrong about Cypher, the Matrix villain. That was not at all a justifiable reason. Preferring to live in fake world instead of real is the core of all the problems faced by humanity today. Ignorance is not bliss. Whoever invented this phrase was genius but evil. Reality, the truth, facts are always better than lies no matter how sweet and comfortable and beautiful the fake life. That was the whole point of the movie Matrix.

    If you ask me, the old guy from Don't Breathe had a pretty justifiable cause. Think about this for a second. He's a disabled veteran, and then a bunch of assholes come to rob his house, because they think he's an easy target because he's blind. Spoiler alert, they get their asses handed to them. I'm not so much worried about justifying him killing and torturing them, I'd just like to see them TRY justifying robbing a blind war veteran.
