Disney Vs Non Disney Villains
Disney Vs Non Disney Villains - Part Two
Maxim Vs MalachiteMaxim Horvath attacks the upcoming sorcerer, Malachite, after the latter receives a powerful gauntlet. Malachite's new powers initially overwhelm Horvath, but the wizard recovers and attacks in earnest. In the ensuing brawl, Malachite actually manages to light Horvath's hand on fire. But Horvath goes a step further: he utterly annihilates his foe.
A New Leader
Sadly for Horvath, his leader, Morgana le Fay, perishes in battle with Queen Bavmorda. In order to wait the war out, Horvath allies with the powerful White Witch, Jadis. Horvath immediately takes on a commanding role in her alliance, promising Captain Hector Barbossa freedom from an ancient Aztec curse in exchange for acquiring a prophecy. Barbossa, however, fails to recover it. When Kalabar tries to take control of the Morganians, Horvath sends him on a suicide mission to prove himself: killing Evil Genius. Unsurprisingly, Kalabar perishes.
Mentor to a Prophesied Child
Interestingly enough, Kalabar's son, Kal, is the child destined to destroy Bavmorda, Morgana le Fay's killer. When Winnie Sanderson delivers Kal to Jadis's alliance, Horvath takes the boy under his wing. He details the plight of the Morganians and the cruelty of Bavmorda to the boy, to Kal's delight.
Horvath appeals to the Ministry of Magic in hopes of gathering strength to take down Bavmorda. However, the Ministry has adopted new leadership, and the review officer, Dolores Umbridge, is less than cooperative. Not only does she deny Horvath's request, but she tries to have him arrested. Horvath quickly disarms her and the most dangerous wizard in the room, Yaxley. He then tries to escape, but Yaxley tracks him down and blasts him into a wall. Horvath, seeing himself not in a good place to fight, distracts the Death Eater with several flying posters and escapes. Instead, he turns to Cutler Beckett and his faction for help; fortunately for Horvath, help is more compliant there.
The Battle of Nockmaar
Equipped with men from Beckett's division, Horvath invades Nockmaar with Kal and the Sanderson Sisters. The group makes quick work of Bavmorda's armies, though her lieutenants prove a bit more difficult to take down. Most notable of these is Bavmorda's partner, Evil Genius. The criminal mastermind deflects one of Horvath's magical spells and electrifies his staff. But Kal distracts the enemy, giving Horvath enough time to bat another magic spell into the enemy. All that is left of Evil Genius is a statue. Having succeeded where Kalabar failed, Horvath hopes to defeat Bavmorda. Yet, as with Morgana, he falls before her magic. However, Kal ends up defeating the witch, ultimately trapping both in a realm beyond life and death. Horvath smiles; his mistress has been avenged.
