A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH.
Someone once said "heroes are only as good as their villains".
This is so true in the case of Paradox. But who is he?
Not much is known about this being. What we do know is that he's incredibly powerful, and virtually unkillable.
He comes from the stars, like the Columns of Creation; and like them, he too came to our world to enjoy life as a human.
So, what makes him the villain of this story?
Paradox, has peacefully lived among us for years. He has made a family for himself, and now lives in the quiet suburban area of Liberty City with his wife, and daughter.
However, something will happen to set him off on a path of destruction. Our heroes will have the impossible task to stop him and save us all. But how do you stop the most powerful being in the universe?
Paradox is one of those villains you immediately fall in love with. What makes him so good is that he is relatable, yet not. While you can see where his wrath comes from and you might very well do many things like him; you can also separate yourself from him, and realize the monstrous things he will do could be avoided. His enjoyment of it all also contributes to his villainy.
But unlike other bad guys, who go out of their way to hurt the heroes (or have a very clear goal that opposes the MCs) things just kind of happen to Paradox. And all he wants, all he needs is to be left alone. But as you will see, this is impossible.
He's very much like Magneto, in that sense. I'm not too familiar with the Magneto in comics, but I remember watching a scene in one of the XMEN movies that was very moving. He just wanted to be left alone, but he is a tragic character, and so misfortune and misery follow him wherever he goes.
On the other hand, both in terms of supernatural abilities, and look, Paradox was very much inspired by the great and powerful Madara Uchiha, from Naruto. Unlike Paradox though, Madara is a "man with a plan". The scale of power, however, is very similar; even down to some skills and moves. And like Madara, Paradox is not someone our heroes have ever met or are acquainted with, except for his name. This makes him completely unpredictable in a fighting scenario, and as you will see, a force to be reckoned with.
