Comparing Villain Ball Magnet and Villain Ball is ... a bit confusing. The Villain Ball as described on its own page is a specialized form of the Idiot Ball that only applies to villains; it isn't something that makes you a villain, it's something that makes you screw up when you're a villain.

Villain Ball Magnet, however, implies that the Villain Ball is something that makes you a villain, and that this trope refers to someone who is unable to shed it.

Which is it?

The name is really awkward, could we change it to Villain Ball Boomerang? Has the idea, speaks smoothly, and has alliteration.

Sorry, what? Batman the fully-paid up JLA member and one of the Big Three superheroes that everyone in The DCU respects?
