Everyone likes a hero, but there's something unforgettable about a truly great villain.

Two iconic villains are currently dominating the box office: Godzilla and Maleficent.

In honor of these two evildoers and their dominance, this week's Head2Head Trivia is all about the bad guy, or gal in some cases.

Our current trivia champ, Candace Wilcox, is being challenged by Josh Gerber who's traveling across the country this summer.


1. Largely unseen for the first half of the movie, what villain stalks Amity Island to the accompaniment of an ominous musical score?

2. What Shakespeare villain is described by his nephew, who's grappling with the murder of his father, as a "bloody, bawdy villain"?

3. What motel proprietor seems like a nice guy until he stabs his guest in the shower?

4. What superhero arch-nemesis is known for his sadistic sense of humor and gets his name from a playing card?

5. The ultimate intergalactic villain in a black cape, what ruthless enforcer makes a shocking confession to the hero who's part of the resistance?

6. Which fantasy villain searches ceaselessly for one particular object, its eye "... was rimmed with fire, but was itself glazed, yellow as a cat's, watchful and intent, and the black slit of its pupil opened on a pit, a window into nothing"?

7. What James Bond villain was frequently seen stroking a white cat?

8. Who was described as "the most powerful dark wizard that ever lived," but met his match in a boy with glasses?

9. Who is the ultimate narcissist, plotting to kill the heroine solely because a mirror told her she's not the most beautiful anymore?
