Marvel Villain- Whirlwind
Apart from Ultron, Hank Pym doesn't exactly have the best villains (heck, his other archenemy is a genius with a pointy skull called Egghead). Whirlwind has potential though.
Whirlwind got off to a pretty bad start. In his first appearance, he was called the Human Top and used his mutant power to create tornadoes to spin around (like a record baby) and not much else. Since he became Whirlwind, he's become a bit more of a threat, but still mainly just uses his powers to fly or throw himself at enemies.
Heroes like the Flash have shown that the ability to create hurricanes and vortexes is a formidable ability and Whirlwind has the potential to be a real threat if used better. Unfortunately, he mainly seems to just appear in the background as part of a larger group of villains.
What also gives Whirlwind the potential to be a big part of Ant-Man's rogue's gallery is his personal connection to Hank Pym. David was originally just a jewel thief, but he later posed as Janet Van Dyne's chauffeur. Initially he planned on robbing her, but he fell in love with her. When she found out his identity and fired him, Whirlwind then became dangerously obsessed with the Wasp.
It's a dynamic that could make him an interesting villain for the pair.
I am all too aware of the fact that as a prominent artist on Instagram, @craig.gleason has inspired a lot copycats (each, I'm sure, with their own justifications for their ripping). He has now, apparently, been ripped off by some t-shirt manufacturers and pseudo Bad Guys are popping up at certain Walmart locations.
The Season of the Bad Guys Club mini-zine is full of interpretations of Craig's characters and all are drawn in my personal style which I have spent several years developing.
Understanding the difference between inspiration and imitation (or straight up stealing) is important, as is recognizing when those boundaries are being crossed.
I post this, not to absolve myself in the great debate of artist integrity, but to promote a project that I am very proud of and to give credit to an artist whom I respect immensely.

Credit to the mighty Beardster @the_beard_tattoo himself for the new ink *and* picture becayse his are better than mine :). Today seemed the perfect day to get a tattoo with some of my birthday money. I'd originally cancelled next week but the best moments in life are when you go 'sod it' and just go do something anyway. I couldn't brave getting Malificient's background smoke as well today as my leg was pretty much an extra from Evil Dead and trying to dance away from my body with the amount of spasms it had! But I'm so happy with the colours and lines and prettyness. The dude is a champion considering what he had to go through 😂. Thanks dude, looking forward to many more sessions in the future, 2 years of ink with you and I'm still impressed every time. #tattooedwomen#tattoo#disney#malificent#badguys#rebel#cartoon#ink#colours#pretty#sleepingbeauty
