Popspiracy: Two Villains as Young Girls

This is a guest post written by Quick Fang (her username: password291), a Poptropica player in the community. In this post, she’ll be sharing her fictional, but inspired backstories for two popular villains, Black Widow of Counterfeit and Scheherazade of Arabian Nights. Enjoy!

Black Widow

“Black Widow” by Happy Lobster

Black Widow was originally a young girl with a deep interest in art. She loved to paint. Each day she would paint at least three paintings.

But her parents did not support her interest. They criticized every painting of hers. And soon enough Black Widow hated art. She wanted to destroy every piece of art she thought was better than hers. So she ran away from home, took up the name ‘Black Widow,’ and formed a team of people who also hated art. Together, they built a secret underground base and they stored the stolen art in the base.

This team of anti-artists wanted to destroy all the art at once. It happened when you try to stop her at the end of Counterfeit Island. After that, she gets caught and reappears on Super Villain Island. When you get her Paintbrush Totem on that island, she escapes and swims toward her freedom—hopefully as a changed person.

Scheherazade

“I Just Want You Back” by 1313cookie (Brave Tomato)

Scheherazade was a princess in Arabia. Her father, the Sultan, was very rich. But she was not happy where she was. The Sultan no longer seemed to care about his daughter—all he cared about was how to get richer.

Instead of enjoying her family’s riches, Scheherazade ran away from home as a young girl and helped the 39 poor people of the kingdom become expert thieves. Counting herself, there were 40 thieves—she was their leader. Together, they swindled their way to a great pile of wealth, which all sat in their hidden hangout spot in the middle of the desert. At least that way, others got to enjoy some riches, and Scheherazade could get back at her father by taking some of his wealth away…

    May I just mention that Black Widow did not entierly hated art. In Super Villian Island, she had an art gallery of herself showing that it might not be a hatered of art, but maybe some sort of ego problem.

    But the Sultan was a normal merchant… the genie granted his wish and he became the Sultan.
    (Which is really ironic cause Scheherazade literally means princess)
