Writing Good Villains

Stereotypical villainHow do you make your villain not a cardboard cutout, stereotypical villain like the guy pictured to the right?

Monica M. Clark has a great article at the Write Practice about how Killmonger fromĀ Black Panther is a masterful example of a good villain, and breaks down the points about the character that make him so wonderful as the villain of the movie. You probably don’t want to read the article if you haven’t seen the movie yet, as there are some spoilers. But if you’ve seen the movie already, the advice is solid if you’re interested in improving your villain writing!
