Ok, so let me tell you about a little franchise called Bionicle. You guys may have heard of it. It's alright, but the villain is actually rather weak. Why? Well, you see, Makooti the Bionic Man has pretty boring motivations. He wants to take over the universe because...he's greedy. That's it. I mean, the most we learn about this is that he was inspired to become Makutalexander the Gr8 after wiping the floor with the Barraki. That's it. He's just a megalomaniac. This has been done to DEATH in fiction, and it's really getting old.
G2 was a little better because its Makuta did what he did more out of envy than pure greed, but he was still very weak. Villains shouldn't just be "oh, I'm a bad guy, I do bad things, hurr hurr," they should work as their own characters. Neither G1 nor G2 really got it right. Both Makutas are linear and uninteresting.
My point is this: For TTV's G3, Makuta should not be so black-and-white. He should not be opposing the Toa just because he wants power, or just because he's salty. There should be an underlying, more intricate reason for what he does. Maybe he's Mata Nui's biological brother, and he believes that he's protecting him because he went mad; or maybe he's actually protecting the Matoran from something that would otherwise be freed along with Mata Nui. This would make him less of a walking cliche and more of a person, someone we could identify with and understand.
Rant over. Kek-man out.
