Sylar is an on again off again favorite for me. He's a really great villain, and we can all agree he was great in "The Hard Part" when he meets with his mother.
And on the discussion about his looks, originally Sylar was going to be a seriously deranged character, with long nails and hair, and fanged teeth. He was described as a "nosferatu" type villain. You can look that up on Heroes Wiki. And they actually offered Christopher Eccleston the role.
But I like how he is a younger guy than he was originally made out to be. It contrasts well with Peter.
Yeah, lovely, another European villain, Christopher Eccleston as Sylar, way to go writing staff. Think, then it would have been yet another case of stereotyping those of different cultures simply out of ignorance, would have made my effin day.
Given though, Eccleston would have pulled it off well considering that that Quinto bloke doesn't have much to offer in the acting department, nor is he convincing as a villain. Should have kept Sylar bathed in shadow.
i think sylar is a great villian. i think the actor they chose for his role is perfect. i cant think of a better villian. i wanna see how that "new evil" sums up as a villian. if he can beat sylar holy shit
Then I would recommend you read/watch around a lot more. There isn't actually a lot of villainy stored in his little old mind, not exactly unexplored veins of cruelty to be tapped and fed, his motivation for killing others can only last so long. I don't think there's much more to be had rom Sylar being a villain.
Just read the signposts; Sylar will have a change of heart and decide that giving people headache's is not a good way to use ones occult powers, and that helping people is.
It was Candice. You may not have read the graphic novel regarding Candice's background, but she was originally a rather large punker-goth thing that discovered she could create illusions and so used it to create chaos and make people think they were exploding, melting, etc.
It was Candice. She even said she was Candice. And they stayed consistent, having her dead body be Betty's bloated form...good for them.
Likewise, Gideon. I thought "Damn, you're an idiot, Candice."
