Pantheon: Villains
Herein is the vile house of villainy, rebuilt after eons past. These gods' goals are destruction and the domination of all existence, seeking to impose their own order upon the multiverse. Though it should be noted not all occupants are totally evil. This house was founded when several of the heroes such as Superman and Spider-Man decided they wanted to resplit the house of Heroes and Villains after the endless war had ground them all down for too long. While many of the elder gods were uneasy at the thought of another hero/villain house split after the first experiment, the case eventually went all the way to the court of the gods, where a very tired and irritated johnson ordered the house split up because, "All that noise makes sleeping very difficult for the rest of us! I tolerate the House of Beasts out of necessity, but split the others up for now. Let them scheme in their own houses." Jean-Luc Picard facepalmed at this utterly arbitrary decision, but as Jack McCoy was leading the case, tired of having the lawless look over his notes, the decision passed with surprisingly little argument. The only dissenter was Harvey Dent, but after flipping a coin, he ultimately decided for it too, though it does create the awkward situation of him needed to drag himself between houses depending on his coin flip on who he was going to visit on off time.

Melkor often visits this house from the main house to plan with his hoard on how they might take down the other houses before long. Most of the resident villains admit that though keeping each other's company is difficult, this is something they'll need to deal with if they're ever going to crush those pathetic heroes under their boots.

However, the only thing they have in common with the Heroes is their shared hatred on the Disgraces.

  • Overdeity of Evil
  • Alignment: Evil (varies between Lawful, Neutral and Chaotic depending on his mood)
  • Portfolio: Every single trope of evil EVER.
  • Domains: Evil, Darkness, Corruption, Tyranny, Destruction, Hatred, Fear, Greed, and many more negative things.
  • Allies: The Ebon Dragon, in an uneasy "backstab opportunity" truce. For the betting ring on which one consumes or otherwise kills the other first out of sheer hatred of anything powerful (that is not of themselves) to become the True Ultimate Evil, please see Marge Simpson and Tsunade of the House of Commerce. The long shot bet is Azathoth, for those betting on a surprise upset. A recent bet is in the form of Grima, the Fell Dragon, due to the similarities in they can't die normally.
  • Followers: Almost every villain to ever exist.
  • He is one of the most powerful and feared of all villains, as the role given to him is to be the very embodiment of evil itself. As such, he can never be truly destroyed, for as long as evil exists in the hearts and minds of all living things in all the myriad universes and realities, then so will he remain Nigh Invulnerable to all attempts to kill him.
  • Is behind the creation of almost every villain born in 20th- and 21st-century fiction.
  • Has spent the past few score thousand years sealed away in the Void by gods now long forgotten. Is highly curious about this newfangled technology stuff mortals have come up with in his absence, but is learning fast enough that he's only set his hair on fire twice so far. Credited by ancient scrolls as developing genetic engineering roughly 20,000 years before any other villain.
  • Is rather pissed at Sauron for how poorly evil in Arda was managed in his absence. It took the gods themselves to dethrone Melkor's reign of terror, but all it took was a few midgets and a "hey, look at this squad over here" to dethrone that incompetent minion he had running things.
  • His Berserk Button is mention of Fingolfin.
  • More recently, The Golden Spider has pissed off Melkor by claiming to be above the God of Evil. The Golden Spider's reasoning is that he is a Creator of Life, much like Eru, who was the one who created Melkor, meaning that Melkor was below him. Understandably, this turned many heads, considering the Golden Spider called such a thing into question.
  • Is GREATLY displeased by recent events caused by the Great Upheaval which has led to him being upstaged by both Lucifer and YHVH being tied for the position of the Pantheon's number one threat. No one knows what he intends to do yet, but he has been heard muttering that "Law and Chaos are nothing compared to the merciless, annihilating power of True Evil, I shall teach them all that...''
    • Upon learning that some of the most significant members of his alliance had jumped ship over to Lucifer and YHVH's newly created ones, his fury knew no bounds. Volcanic mountain ranges rose all across the streets of the Pantheon and erupted with titanic force, as violent thunderstorms raged in the skies not just above the Pantheon, but above the world(s) of mortals as well. Melkor's ranting earthquake-like voice, full of absolute malice and insanity, echoed and boomed across every House and Temple as he screamed forth a terrible vow, note 
    • The Great Will yawned and responded: note 
    • Lucifer's response was considerably more succint: note 

    The Ebon Dragon 
The Ebon Dragon, The Shadow of All Things (The Ultimate Darkness, The Dragon's Shadow, The All-Shadow, The Dragon That Was, Ebby, ED)
