9. Who is your favorite villain?

If you know me at all, you will not at all be surprised that my answer is Ruby from Supernatural. I could write thousands of words of meta on that character, and still have more to say. The thing that I love about her is that, as demons go in the Supernatural universe, Ruby was not particularly powerful. Even the low-level demons were able to toss the Winchesters into walls, but the only time we get even a glimpse of that sort of power is when she closes the doors on Dean in "Lucifer Rising." Did she have that power all along? I don't think so. I think that Ruby was a demon pretty low on the totem pole, so when Lilith said "I have a job for you," she went willingly and without question. She manipulates the Winchesters so beautifully, twists Sam around her finger with one simple sentence: I can help save your brother.

Ruby knew exactly what she was doing, but her power was all in her words. And that is why she's my favorite villain.

I like why you like Ruby. There's something awesome about a character who knows how to use what they have to make epic, big things happen -- especially when what they have wouldn't be considered particularly notable by any normal standard.
