The Aberration Blog Hop
In Aberration, FBI profiler, Kassidy Bishop is on the hunt for serial killer who is an aberration—a freak—even among serial killers. For this blog hop, all you have to do is list your top 5 choices for the most aberrant (freakish or abnormal) characters in fiction, TV and movies!
Before we get started, let’s take a look at the definition of aberration:
1 : the fact or an instance of deviating or being aberrant especially from a moral standard or normal state
2 : unsoundness or disorder of the mind
3 : an aberrant individual
— ab·er·ra·tion·al adjective
From the Merriam Webster Online DictionaryMy Picks
- Griffith from Berserk (manga, TV, and movie). I didn’t even have to think about it. This character is disturbed on every level, and it’s a very dark read--probably the most twisted thing I've ever encountered. Fun fact: After 20 years, the story is still going...
- Of course, we have Dr. Hannibal Lecter from The Silence of the Lambs (book, movie, and TV). This one doesn't even warrant an explanation.
- The Joker from Batman (comic, movies, TV, and games), fan-favorite that he is, exhibits some pretty aberrant behavior.
- How about a recent example? General Monroe from Revolution (TV). Sure, I only started watching the show because Billy Burke is a sexy, rugged beast, but the other characters have grown on me--abnormal as they may be.
- Let’s end on a more lighthearted note. What about Mother Gothel from Disney’s Tangled (movie)?
Congratulations, Lisa! ♥
