A while back, I put up an old list of tips from Peter’s Evil Overlord List. Recently, some folks asked me to expand on it since I had been making posters and throwing them up on Facebook. Why not, It will give me some material for a while. I don’t think I will end up doing them daily, but it will still be fun!
I would think this one would be obvious. I mean come on just in Star Wars alone, the poor storm troopers got their asses handed to them on so many occasions. Even Teddy Bears whooped their asses. Fact is though they all seem to have that fatal flaw. Tiny holes to look through.
The Black Knight, Slits for his eyes. Dark Helmet at least had bigger holes to look through. Vader… well Vader had a top of the line imaging system as did Boba and Jango Fett, most Mandalorians do. Almost every single time some Evil Doer has minions, they have helmets. They can’t see through those little slits or dark plastic lenses. That’s simply crazy.
It’s for this reason that it made the list, now these are not in priority order so don’t go thinking this is all you need to do in order to become a top-notch Evil Overlord.
