The Most Evil Fictional Characters in Literature

There are a number of arguments in the discussion thread of a recently published list of the 50 Greatest Villains in Literature in the Telegraph (UK) newspaper.

The biggest argument may be over the most evil person on the list.

It’s Satan (from John Milton‘s Paradise Lost).

Some are mad that Satan is on a list of “fictional characters.”

Some are mad that the #1 choice went to Satan from Paradise Lost rather than Satan from the Bible.

Was anyone left off the list for you?
