So an idea I'm considering using with my main character is to have him in a world of super heroes and villains where he's secretly a super villain. Nobody knows he's a super villain in fact he's like the leader of the Legion of Doom. By day he's considered a close personal friend to his world's heroes he's even married to one of the iconic members. He is motivated by the fact that he doesn't like the way things are going in the world and feels that the heroes are not really helping at all. For example a lot of the so called heroes are very flawed and one is even a serial rapist(this comes out much later and when he finds out who one of the victims is it sends the main character over the edge and he goes on a rampage) as far as they know he's just the head of security/operations at their base and also works as their PR manager. However privately he runs a massive super villain organization. As a super villain he's ruthless and scary like a mob boss. However he's good at hiding it from the people in his personal life and because of that they see him as a optimistic and idealist which is a complete contrast to his real personality which is very nihilistic. One of the things that affects him is abuse he suffered as a child something he never talks about mostly because nobody has really asked him about his upbringing he'll have ptsd flash backs that to the casual observer will look like he's just starring off into space. However I don't know what the best reaction from them would be because some people your close to can tell if your putting on a front and some cant so I'm wondering if they should be surprised at his true nature or surprised that they didnt see it before. He is like Lelouch from Code Geass. This is a good example of how he is.
