"Without his Storm Troopers (or his Clones) the Emperor of the Star Wars universe would have been nothing more then a personal menace with a great need for a plastic surgeon and a better fashion consultant. And where would Sauron have been without his Orcs. The power of most Masterminds lies with their minions—the faceless hordes who exist to do (literally) only the Mastermind's bidding and work their evil upon the game world."
“What can you say? There’s a downside to working for supervillians.”
"Do you know who I am? Have you got
any idea how many anonymous henchmen I've killed over the years? I mean, look at you: you don't even have a name tag. You've got no chance. Why don't you just fall down? Go on, son."
"Poor goblins. Dying for the cheap entertainment of low level PCs."
"Do you want me to slow him down, sir, or do you want to send in some more guys for him to beat up?"
Dude... it's a tall guy dressed in black, with a weird, glowy weapon thing, and we're a couple of guards in matching, shiny armor... we're so fucking DEAD!
Wally: "I've decided to dabble in crime. I need some henchmen. Are you in?"
Asok: "What does a henchmen do?"
"I wouldn't pack a lunch for orientation day."
Joker: Please allow me to introduce my associates. Miss Quinn..
Harley Quinn: Enchanted!
And Misters.. [gestures at his two goons]
..their names escape me at the moment..
"Man, I gotta stop hiring thugs off Craigslist."
Meanwhile, the guard that smacked around Magneto has gone directly from his job at a high-security government installation to a bar, where he is easily seduced by Mystique, who has turned herself into Sexy Rebecca Romijn. Matt:
I know a bar is directly
where I’d go if I had to do that guy’s job. Chris
: Yeah, I guess having to beat up a Holocaust survivor all day is a pretty good reason to drink.
Ladies and gentlemen, we are gathered here today via YouTube to solemnly remember our great friend, Soldier A. He was there to scream as he was shot, he was there to grunt as he was punched in the face, and he announced, yes, it was a Gundam. May he rest in peace...at least until the next action scene.
