A good villain goes a long way to make a story memorable and iconic. Villains come in all shapes and sizes. Some have compelling motivations behind their actions, while others simply spread meaningless chaos. However, no villain can match the raw power and sheer lovable arrogance of the shape-shifting master of darkness himself: Aku, antagonist for Cartoon Network's classic series, Samurai Jack.
I was ecstatic to learn of Samurai Jack's revival via a recent teaser posted to the official Adult Swim YouTube channel. Aku is one of my favorite villains, and I cannot wait to see how his maniacal personality evolves throughout the new series. Details on the relaunch of Samurai Jack are scarce for now, but I cannot wait to see my favorite master of darkness relaunch his campaign of torment on the warrior lost in time.
