"A Hero does what is right. A Villain does what is necessary"

I think you'll find that the word you're looking for is anti-hero

I don't think so

A Hero saves people because it is right, while a Villain kills them because it's needed for him to gain the upper hand. A Hero saves innocent people because it is right, a Villain lets them die in order to gain more opportunities for himself

When I say "Does what is necessary", I don't mean they do what's best for everyone, I mean they also do what's best for themselves. Both Anti-Heroes and Villains follow this thought process

Villains and and anti-heroes are often much more interesting than the generic goodguy protagonist.

Heath Ledger's Joker was pretty awesome and had some interesting moments even though he was a bit insane

>A bit

Literally the whole premise of the Joker is to be ******* insane and show that others can be just as bad as him. He is the most insane, crazy mother ****** in Gotham.

But no, he's just a bit insane.

As someone who has enjoyed Norse mythology since early childhood, I can say I do not hate Loki at all. It's not his fault for being what he is. He was born to bring around Ragnarok, and that's just how it is.

He invented the road system, without him we'd probably be crashing a lot more (well, it would've been invented later anyway)

"Just days after the 1933 Nazi takeover, Adolf Hitler enthusiastically embraced an ambitious autobahn construction project and appointed Fritz Todt, the Inspector General of German Road Construction, to lead up the project. By 1936, 130,000 workers were directly employed in construction, as well as an additional 270,000 in the supply chain for construction equipment, steel, concrete, signage, maintenance equipment, etc. In rural areas, new camps to house the workers were built near construction sites.[7] The job creation program aspect was not especially important because full employment was almost reached by 1936. The autobahns were not primarily intended as major infrastructure improvement of special value to the military as often stated because they were of no military value as all major military transports in Germany were done by train to save fuel. The propaganda ministry turned the construction of the autobahns into a major media event that attracted international attention.[8]"

Well, it was used by the previous chancellor in 1932 before Hitler, who built the Bundesautobahn 555 and from the thing you pasted, you can see he put someone in charge of building more motorways, he didn't lead the project himself. Also, Autobahns refer specifically to motorways, not just roads in general. Also there wer motorways in Long Island in 1908 and public motorways in the US in the 1920's, Hitler just expanded the German autobahns, so it's quite an exaggeration to say he invented the road system.

The thing is that good and evil is a subjective thing. Even Hitler was convinced that he was the good guy.

Actually he knew the whole killing jews thing was wrong. He had used them as a scapegoat for why Germany was doing so bad and through blaming them he had gained his power.

All in all Hitler just really wanted to become the leader and help Germany become a world power and didn't care who he stepped on to do it.

Mmm... so I have done a little bit of searching.

Seems that a few historians believe that he started the whole show for political reasons, but even they say that eventually it grew into real hatred. The rest claim that he was just butthurt because he blamed losing WW1 on the jews.

And in Mein Kampf he blames the jews for letting in ******* to "sully" the white race.

Yeah the whole blamed losing WW1 on the jews. When WW1 was going on the general propaganda that was going on in Germany was that they were winning the war and that they had the whole thing in the bag when in reality they were losing to the opposing forces. When the time came around that they did lose the war it was a huge shot to everyone and people thought that the jewish people surrendered to the winners because the winners bought them out. The jewish people were a lot of the political people in Germany at the time and it would make sense that they would have control over when to surrender and what not. So basically Everyone thought that the jewish sold out Germany's total win and Hitler rose to power off of that.

So all that said, my initial point was that from Hitlers subjective point of view he still saw himself as the good guy.
