25 villains disguised as good guys 1

When Henri Ducard (Liam Neeson) first appeared in 2005’s Batman Begins, a lot of viewers assumed that he’s one of the good guys. Cultured, sophisticated, and eloquent, Henri served as a friendly trainer and mentor to Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale). But in the latter part of the film, it was revealed that Herni was actually a terrorist mastermind that goes by the alias Ra’s al Ghul.

Believing that Gotham was beyond saving, Henri founded the League of Shadows to jeopardize the city. As a fiercely devoted member of the League, Henri was convinced that the faction’s purpose of checking against humanity before it overdevelops is justified. Because of this, Henri did not have a single qualm about taking another person’s life if their existence stood against his beliefs.

Interesting facts about BTS
  • The group name, “BTS” stands for the Korean expression Bangtan Sonyeondan which translates to “Bulletproof Boy Scouts”. Band member J-Hope said that they chose this name because it represents BTS’s desire “to block out stereotypes, criticisms, and expectations that aim on adolescents like bullets.” But that isn’t the only meaning behind the name. In 2017, BTS said, as part of their new brand identity, that their name would also stand for Beyond the Scene” which extended their name to mean “growing youth BTS who is going beyond the realities they are facing, and going forward.”
  • BTS was originally intended to be a hip-hop group, similar to YG Entertainment’s 1TYM.
