A few weeks ago, the sci-fi horror film Life hit theaters. The tale of an unstoppable alien stalking a group of heroic astronauts on the International Space Station had the right amount of terror, intrigue and characters. We here at Heroic Hollywood liked it. One thing about the movie that was awesome was its ending. It’s been a few weeks, so most of you all probably know, but the alien ends up being the victor, killing the crew and assumingly conquers planet Earth. Life continues the fun trend of when the villains in the movie win.
This makes you think… what about other times where the villain actually wins? In the world of heroes who constantly face insurmountable odds and almost always end up being the victor (after all, who wants it for the good guy to not be triumphant?), there have been a few times many films based on comic book properties where the villain is actually the victor, even when they lose.
