Default The Sympathy For Adler

Its interesting how he did so many heinous things ,yet he is still written to be sympathetic in a lot of ways. Obviously not in a way to excuse his actions.

I don't know. The fact he murdered Cole's parents for no real reason makes him pretty unsympathetic.

The whole idea is how Adler's poor choices have ruined his life and destroyed him. He became a shell of his former self who only had his hatred for Cole left. He was a very tragic character. Even if his choices brought it on himself.

Its easy to call someone a monster. But to see villians are flawed humans makes it scarier. Since it shows how far regular people can fall if they make bad decisions. It makes for a better antagonist as well.

Well I don't feel sorry for him at all. He was a murdere who chose to be evil. He deserved what was coming to him.

I think Adler's back story was way too dark for a kids show. Its too bad the censors let it go.

Its pretty powerful when Cole refuses to stoop to his level and kill him. He even feels sorry for him despite everything Adler took from Cole.

Great villians do have a little bit of sympathy for them. He was a good contrast to Cole. Who didn't give into vengeance or hate. Despite having a better reason for it than Adler did forgetting to his parents.

Master Org was really a multi-layer character. And is even more interesting from Adler's perspective. He is the finest villian the show has ever had in terms of writing.

I think he was too serious. We needed Master Org to be a villain that cracked jokes and had all kinds of witty one liners.
