Visual: The Governor (The Walking Dead)

The Governor, who appears in The Walking Dead issues 27 - 48, is one of the most iconic and brutal villains I've seen in any form of fiction. In Season 3 of the television show, which premieres tonight, The Governor will be introduced, played by David Morrissey. I've never seen Morrissey in anything else, but judging from the promo pictures of the actor in character, I think that he suits the role well, even if he's going to play it differently than the comics villain.

Some villains are fun to cheer for, but the Governor is a murderer, torturer, rapist, and pedophile, so it's pretty easy to loathe him and hope for his painful demise. The rivalry between Rick and The Governor is exciting, disturbing, and heart-breaking in the comics, and I can't wait to see how it comes to life on the television screen. If The Governor is even half as ruthless in the show as he is in the comics, then he'll likely become a notorious TV villain for the ages.
