He is a man who could be the greatest villain of all time, a man possessed of incredible powers, but chooses instead to counsel and consult others into being the best villain they can be.  Not only did he help the Monarch to become shockingly competent (as well as helping Monarch to see he needed Dr. Girlfriend), he actually helped Dr. Rusty Venture to see that he could escape a life of mediocrity and failure.  Of course, that meant becoming the super-villain that Rusty is clearly qualified to be in all but nature, so Dr. V rejected his help, but that’s beside the point.  The brilliance of Venture Brothers comes in making a mash-up of diplomat Henry Kissinger with Mary Poppins could be both awe-inspiring and blood chilling, especially when one considers that he is the man who set in motion the convoluted events that led to the toppling of the seemingly unstoppable Guild, events during which he once again declined to become the leading villain in the world.  He is neither good nor evil, he simply is.

And that’s kind of amazing…

About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
