Super Villains... In Drag?!!
With the fourth season of Ru Paul's Drag Race premiering this Monday, let's take a fun look of moments when comic super-villains in film decided to... get in touch with their feminine side!
As an aspiring drag queen who LOVES comics, movies, vidya gaems, cartoons, and all things geeky, it's no wonder that I'm not only deathly excited to watch the premiere of the new season of Ru Paul's Drag Race on LOGO Network, but I want to share it all with you! How, you may ask? Well, it's quite funny, actually.
You see, while browsing through IMDB and Wikipedia, I came upon the realization that, not only did alot of my favorite actors play many comic book villains, but also alot of characters that, well, dress in drag. Be it playing casual crossdressers, delightful drag divas, or timid transgendered women, it would appear that if you gotta wear one costume, you gotta wear 'em all! Sometimes the villains get into the act, themselves!
Oh yes, my darlings! You know what time it is! It's time to do some EEEEEVIL! It's time to get BAAAAAD! And more importantly, we're gonna look SICK'NING while doing it, too! WERK!
