Panlos is the city’s number 1 villain and has caused havoc for many years. Due to being a genius, he was always ahead of the curve, maintained an upper hand on the heroes, and terrorized the civilians and the government.

The only person who could go head-to-head with him was Ye Mu, society’s number 1 hero and the strongest in the country. He was fast, had tremendous power, and always hunted for Panlos.

Panlos and Ye went against each other for more than ten years but were never able to finish each other. One day Mu caught Panlos off guard and almost had him in his crutches, and it looked like it was finally over.

As he was about to land this decisive blow, Panlos’s mask came off, and the face was similar, which was none other than Ye Mu’s best friend. He could not believe what he was witnessing in front of his eyes.


After coming to terms with the current situation, Panlo’s crimes were too great to forget, even if he was his best friend a while back, as his pride would not allow him to permit the existence of such a criminal.

The only solution available was to kill each other, as both of them had their reasons to continue fighting. For Panlos, he desired to kill Ye Mu; meanwhile, Ye was trying to find his father’s killer.

Both of them pointed their lasers at each other and let a smile as it was going to be their last meeting, or so they thought. Suddenly due to a blast, everything was fogged in black, and Ling found himself back in the body of his 17-year-old version.

Unfortunately, this event started a chain of events that will rewrite history so that it would not make any sense or logic. Now that Panlos or Ling was his real name in the past, he has many opportunities to kill Ye Mu.


Now that Ling was back in the past and he knew how the future turned out, it was a decision of his will of whether he wanted to follow the same blood path or lead his life into a new era where he was a part of the heroes.

He went vigilante because Ling Chen only loved one person: her aunt, who the heroes killed. From then onwards, he decided to wipe out all the heroes from the world, and his main target was Ye.

As the aunt is now alive and well, he contemplates whether it was an excellent decision to turn villain again, but despite that, his desire to kill Ye Mu is still there, and he starts working on his things so that he can finally put him down.

Ling started to gather his crew which he knew in the future, and decided to ask them for help. Unfortunately, due to being a child, he was not respected or given any attention. He had no other means but to kill Ye Mu himself.

Is Villan Initialization Worth Reading?

The series is one of the special categories of webtoons as it belongs to the evil protagonist category. This type of story is scarce, and now most of the ongoing series have the same repetitive plot of the good guys beating the villains.

This might help you get a taste of something different from the usual series you might read. The story is impressive as both main characters have reasons for fighting, but none is pleasant.

Both of them are fighting for their own goals, but surprisingly the hero of the series also has an ulterior motive which gives it a unique twist to your average series.


Villian Initialization is a unique genre series, and the characters are unforgettable and supported by great side characters, making the overall story very attractive. Since more than 90% of the stories favored the heroes, this one focuses on the villain.

The series grows on you over time, and you start to understand the villains’ points, why they do stuff, and how they feel deep within while doing this heinous activity. It is also filled with humor but does not overpower the main aspects. Overall is a great pick, and you should check it out.

Do small things with great love.
