The Skulls


Skulls (sometimes known as Death's Heads) are a very common symbol in villainy and are found in all kinds of media - due to many society's both respecting and fearing death the image of a human skull is very disturbing and has long been used as a symbol of piracy, often as the infamous Skull and Crossbones.

Many villains in fiction utilize skulls either in their name, their power or their general philosophies - in stark contrast very few heroes utilize skull designs.
