If you look at it in terms of science, all heroes get roped into itchy looking outfits and a hellofalot of responsibility. And possibly a three part franchise with the potential for a cameo part in a future spin-off?
But the villains, well. They em-bed themselves into the souls of their audience - both fans and fearers, alike. They live on in all the misgivings and bad deeds of those who were once witness to their actions. Plus, I'm pretty sure the Bag Guys don't pay rent, so. Who's winning, really?
I think you might be doing it exactly right.
