Cartoonish Supervillainy
Smithers: "But when [Mr. Burns] planned to steal our sunlight, he crossed that line between everyday villainy and cartoonish supervillany."
Dr Colossus: Bah! He was a rank amateur compared to... Dr. Colossus!

So you want to become a supervillain. Here's a handy guide to accomplishing this, in several easy steps!

There is one thing you must never, ever do to be a true Cartoonish Supervillain:

This doesn't mean you have to fail at every step of your plan, because it's a well known fact that You Can't Thwart Stage One. You'll probably get to rob the bank or build the Doomsday Device, and you usually get to escape when it goes pear-shaped. But beyond that, you're pretty much screwed. Don't forget to shake your fist, swear you'll be back and never re-use any of your old plans. It's all part of the supervillain flair.
