Home - About the Minions - About the Overlords

Wednesday, May 17, 2006

Hi! Um, I mean -- Who goes there?

Since the beginning of time, and maybe before, depending on whose creation story you believe, the forces of evil have always had minions: faceless, interchangeable servants to do their evil bidding, or at least to give the forces of good some convenient targets to pick off on their way to a confrontation with the Evil Overlord.

Have you ever wondered who these guys are as they are flung by the hero from a catwalk into the nuclear reactor, or paralyzed by a blow-gun dart while patrolling some cheap-looking corridor? Do they have hopes, fears, dreams, homes? Do they have a decent 401K, and do they get an employee discount at the evil-lair's souvenir shop?

Okay, maybe you haven't, but I have.

These are the Minions. expendable. Interchangeable. Not too bright. Evil isn't really their nature. Evil is just their day job.

These are their stories.

Enjoy yourself, and come back here for a new "Minions" panel every Monday. And if you like the Minions, please pass the link around. If you can't be an Evil Overlord, at least you can participate in a dark conspiracy. Together, we will corrupt the world!
