I LOVE THAT SCENE IN MUNICH!!!

i love how arty insults the guard without really insulting him with words.

Does that make sense??

I chose Arty. He's simply the best!!!

He has this cold look, he never gets angry or panicked, always saves his face, he articulates wonderfully, and just has STYLE!!!

He's a great actor, too. In Munich he was brilliant (Hilarious, dude )

What else I've got to say...? He's indescribable.

pretty much sums it up. what more can you say? :ph43r:

I think a good villian is someone who doesnt get caught and Artemis never really got caught but Opal did ... twice.

And considering Opal is alot older but Artemis, Artemis is my opinon is the far superior villian.

Hehe - Couldnt agree more :D

Anyone can try to be an enemy, and maybe even get away with it. But Arty did it with such style - He was just perfect :D

I really liked the scene in AF1, where he meets with Root. His perfect poise throughout the whole thing, and his "mistake" ;)

my favorite would be, of course, Artemis ;) but afor the best villain I still voted for Spiro

Yes, Artemis has it all, he has style, he's even somewhat dark and mysterious, traits that I have always associated with the greatest villains and that Spiro doesn't have...but I couldn't trully consider Artemis evil. He is the bad character of book 1, but I couldn't consider him a villain since the first "joke" he made, which made me feel that a change in him is about to occur...since that, in book 1, I've seen the fairys and Artemis just as 2 opposite parties, with different interests and purposes...

and I've always considered memory erasing and time stopping kind of hostile means :P
<span style='color:gray'><span style='font-family:Arial'>Oh yes, about my name, Artemis. You were right in London, it's a female name after the Greek goddess of archery. But every now and then a male comes along with such a talent for hunting that he earns the right to use the name. I am that male. Artemis the hunter. I hunted you.</span></span>
