In one story, I'm planning to have the Big Bad
who ruled an army of undead) get possessed by a spirit being with strong White Magic
powers. This spirit isn't in control of the body (except when he's incapacitated, leading to him having a Superpowered Good Side
) but prevents him from using any of his powers. This occurs in the climax of the final battle.
Next book will be from the depowered Big Bad
's perspective, as he tries to deal with his fall from power and figure out a way to free himself from possession. But I'm not sure exactly what to have him do. The heroes will be mostly leaving him alone, since they think he can't cause any more trouble, but they'll notice if he does something really obvious. I'm also pondering whether to give him Character Development
that leads to a Heel-Face Turn
- what I've thought out about his backstory makes him somewhat sympathetic, in a screwed-up way.

If I'm asking for advice on a story idea, don't tell me it can't be done.
