How about narcissistic villains.  They could cross the line into
sociopathic behavior if pushed. They'd rationalize, as every person is out
for themselves. So why bother with altruism. I think of some wall street
types.
​> Or the villain who doesn't think he's a villain.  Just sombody who has
the
necessary thing to protect society. Think those people who conducted
"enhanced interrogation."

That is covered by my last example:

# The villain who truly believes they are doing the best possible for their
society.
They never do realise and POV from them, and a close intimate horrified at
what they are doing is fascinating.
