Opal Koboi from the Artemis Fowl series. I adore her. And one of the protagonists, Holly Short, is seriously one of my least favorite book characters ever. **** Holly.
Been a long time since I read them as a kid. But seriously, Holly was a total gung ho annoying ***** who treated her friends like **** and thought she was smart and cool and tough but really she was just a loser. To make matters worse, you could clearly tell she was the author's favorite character. Opal, while evil as hell, had a good sense of humor, was told to be deliciously gorgeous, was a super genius, and had a flair for wonderful vengeance.
Agreed. And to use the same book, Artemis himself was an awesome character, and yet technically he was a villain, but he only targeted other villains. Same with Sly Cooper and the gang.
Deadpool. He was sort of in a movie.
How the hell is he a villain? He's a Marvel hero.
