Those Evil Antagonists

Okay, so not all antagonists are evil. Not all of them are even human. Antagonists come in so many forms, but often times they are harder to nail down because you can’t get in their head. There’s nothing worse than an antagonist that doesn’t seem threatening to your protagonist. Actually there is something worse, an antagonist that is so evil and so impenetrable that there is no way for the protagonist to possibly succeed. Getting your antagonist just right can be difficult, but the more the antagonist is a flawed creation of absolutes the harder it will be.
