Do We Have This? It probably needs to exist anyway.

When a character is sufficiently popular, they have a tendency to do a Heel-Face Turn. And such characters have a tendency to do Face Heel Turns when it's realized that they really worked better as a villain.

More common in Comic Books, due to the local equivalent of the Seven Year Rule, mixed with Jean Grey Escalation, creates a tendency to waver between the two.

Examples:
  • Catwoman.
  • Magneto of the X-Men.
  • Too many Soap Opera characters to list.
  • I never saw an episode, but I've heard Alias had a weird fetish for this.
