But it's not just that some modern villains want to bang their siblings. It's that villains who in the past would totally be gay have now switched to being into incest. Pick a well-groomed, slightly effeminate villain from a recent movie or TV show, and chances are his creepiness will be built upon the raging erection he has for his family. Commodus from Gladiator, for example, is deliberately meant to be the antithesis of Maximums. Whereas Maximus is tall and manly, Commodus is small and kind of lanky, and if the movie was made a few decades before, you bet he'd be shown banging his male servants to accentuate just how "twisted" he is. But because the movie is fairly recent, he instead wanted to LXIX his sister, despite the historical Commodus sentencing his sister to death after she tried to have him assassinated. Suck it, history. We won't let a simple thing like actual facts stand in the way of a mediocre incest storyline.
Woo-jin, the villain from Oldboy, is similarly skinny, smartly-dressed, and doesn't fight his own battles. But unlike Commodus, he actually succeeded in having sex with his sister. So, score for him? I'm not sure how the points system works for succeeding in something so awful. GOOOOAL, I guess. Someone, please help.
And how could we forget the Mount Rushmore of Fictional Family Humping: Game of Thrones. There are way too many bad guys there with autumn fetishes (because they like to pump kin), so let's focus on the prissy and effeminate Viserys Targaryen. Not only does he not see anything weird about brothers sleeping with sisters, he's actually the product of generations of inbreeding. Interestingly, he's also the spitting image of Prince Nuada Silverlance from Hellboy II, who also wanted to get with his sister.
