As the title asks. In one of my stories the main character has a father who is more or less the primary antagonist. My fear, however, is that due to things like Star Wars this is just so overdone/cliche' that it will detract from the story as a whole. Things are handled quite differently from works like star wars, mind you. Instead of starting out as a mysterious baddie or even a baddie in general the MC and their father are on somewhat good terms at the start of the story, with the father being shown to be somewhat distant/aloof but still caring about the MC in his own way. However, as the true details of his father's wickedness become apparent to the MC he eventually turns against him and finds out that he's not even his biological child but a frankenstein creation made from his father's DNA as well as the DNA of...something else.(I do not want to bother explaining all the details, would take to long.) However, despite being handled differently from the cliche' villainous father I still fear the idea of the father of the MC being the main bad guy just being too cliche. Anyway, if anybody has any thoughts and opinions on this I would appreciate it.
