I have been watching Marvel's Agents if shield, and between that, Black Panther, and all the Netflix Marvel series abiut the Hand, I not only noticed the evil Asian villain theme... but if you compare those stories with the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, the 108 heroes, the journey to the west, or Louis Cha's novels, you will notice that the modern western villains tend to dhare more in common with the heroes in older Chinese culture. And you cab flip that around too.
Heroes like Coulson, or Tchalla are more similar to the villains in the old Chinese stories.
Here are some examples I will talk about.
In ancient China, and ancient other places, heroes can eat human flesh, require that their children die and other horrific things, and still be the heroes.
Villains like Cho Cho, seem to be good leaders and have their stuff together and obey the laws.
More specifics on this later.
