Six Red-Haired Villains
“Villain” might be a loaded term, but in this case merely being scripted to oppose the hero(es) is good enough for me. Here, in no particular order, are six red-haired villains:
Mayor Richard Wilkins III is a villain on the Buffy the Vampire Slayer tv series; a man who makes deals with demons and seeks power through arcane and devilish rituals. He generally speaks gently, and is polite and unassuming. He is also a germaphobe.
Poison Ivy has been an “enemy” of Batman for over 50 years now. She’s the plant controlling eco-terrorist who mostly wants to see her poor plants get a little payback against the evil polluting civilization. Her costume is usually some version of green swimsuit covered in (ivy) leaves.
Syndrome is the villain in the movie The Incredibles. Poor Buddy’s boyhood dreams of following in a hero’s footsteps were dashed, and he spent his adulthood searching for ways to technologically prove mankind better than the supernaturally powered superfolk.
Mystique is the mysterious blue-skinned red-haired shape shifter in the Marvel Universe. She’s usually a villain, though in the comics she has an odd relationship with the X-men due to her being a mother-figure to Rogue.
Princess Morbucks is a tantrumy rich girl who serves as one of the villains on The Powerpuff Girls. Her father’s money is used to pay for whatever she needs to pull off her schemes. When told she couldn’t buy super powers she came back with “Oh yeah, tell that to Batman!”
We never learn what her real name is, but Yolanda/Saffron/Bridget is a rather devious character in the television series Firefly. She’s a con artist who tends to marry people to get their money, or whatever they might have of value.
I’d also like to honorably mention Lex Luthor, who in his first appearances was red-haired. I’d have used him as my first villain here if images were common enough. (I found a few, but I was a little worried about sharing them.) Besides, I already had Pam up there to honor the DCU.
