It don't like any of this
"Do you have any last words?" stupidness, or the villain 'telling hi/her life story to the "goodie" before they fight.' because the second one just tends to give a lot away.
I like having minor and major villains too, I just don't like when a villain has no purpose other than to get beaten up by the heroes. D:
