During one of the insta takeovers before TABC I asked Frank Cole what he thought some of the best ways a villain can get an upper hand over the hero. He told me that one of the best ways to gain an advantage is through the mistakes of the Hero. It makes the human more believable and relatable as well. It gives the hero room for redemption and growth from their mistakes and connects the hero and villain.
What do you think some other great ways to give the villain a head over the hero?
