U is for Ulysses Klaue

God bless villains with unusual names, so I get to have a character for this day. Once again, I got to say Klaue isn’t a favourite though I do think Andy Serkis appears to have a whale of time in the role and that makes Klaue an entertaining presence whenever he’s on screen.

I kinda love how unapologetically greedy Klaue is. He’s a black-market arms dealer, has no problem with murder, and generally has little regard for life. His henchmen are indeed just that and he doesn’t appear to have anyone he cares about. He knows how to talk the talk when faced with someone deadlier than himself, case in point Ultron, and he also willingly admires Killmonger even when he is being killed by him.

Klaue definitely has a weird sense of priorities and a weird sense of humour too. He’s eccentric, having his replacement hand being a weapon, and readily talks about his fear of cuttlefish when confronted by someone with powers.

Klaue is a cunning businessman and he is smart, noticing the little things while also having a lot of fun causing chaos. He does think highly of himself which you could say was his downfall as he never really saw Killmonger as a threat.

Klaue was always a funny and entertaining villain, especially in Black Panther. His obnoxious attitude always bounced off of other more serious characters and just made him a lot of fun to watch.

  1. Just re-watched Black Panther, still love it. This character isn’t my favorite either, although, Andy Serkis is one of my favorite voice actors. Great theme, I’ll be back here when the A to Z blogging challenge winds down. So many blogs to visit, so little time. – Dragons & Spaceships

    1. Yeah I think Andy Serkis’ career is really interesting and how he’s shone a light on motion capture is impressive.
      Thanks for stopping by and commenting – I totally know what you mean, there’s so many blogs I need to catch up on!
