I’m not a mob boss who wants to rule the city or an evil genius out to destroy the world. I have no sense of what it takes to destroy your enemies or lead by instilling fear in those around you.
Still, and I don’t want to come across as judgmental, if I was an evil bad guy and I got the upper hand on the hero who has been single-handedly destroying my empire, I think I would get rid of him or her right then. I wouldn’t take him somewhere more safe and wait for him to wake up so I could tell him about the revenge I was going to exact on him and those he loves.
He’s hurt, barely conscious, unarmed. Done. If I need to process how I’m feeling, I would blog about it later.
It just makes sense.
