Great new villain: Spoilers

Now that the series is done, what did everyone think of Edna as the main villain? I thought she was such a compelling and fresh villain, especially since Back to Future villains were always some version of Biff or his relatives. Edna was a villain that I literally went from hating her to feeling sorry for multiple times throughout the game.

There were moments where I truly felt sorry for her and almost understood her actions, but also hated her for all the horrible things she did that were just evil in way not even Biff showed. Running Doc over with the car and Doc realizing that Edna was always warped were the most powerful scenes to show just how evil can Edna go. Great villain and I think the way her story ends was the perfect balance for people who wanted her to be punished for her crimes and people who felt really sorry for her.

  • @R.I.P-Bill said: I dunno, the one I had the most sympathy for was young Emmet. The saddest part of the game for me was when he started singing "I Don't Care" to himself while Marty climbed the Clocktower in Episode 4



    I feel sorry for Hill Valley myself, it's been altered for better and for worse and now it's been burnt down! :D

  • I thought she was a really good villain, especially when she was young. She just seemed really believable. I hate it when villains are over exaggerated and unbelievable.

  • @Marty Mcfly III said: I thought she was a really good villain, especially when she was young. She just seemed really believable. I hate it when villains are over exaggerated and unbelievable.



    I am not sure, is she a better villain that Biff? Quite possibly.

  • Well Biff has done a lot of things in the name of self gain, whereas Edna managed to destroy an entire town, corrupt and use Emmett to do her evil bidding ie create a police state, pervert the course of justice, try to reprogram her husband, and commit acts of arson. Even compared to The Tannen in 1876 she seemed more dangerous than he was, when she was standing there with the burning torch!

  • Biff isn't really evil. He's just an asshole.

    And Alstom, she refers to Biff as her stepson, so yes. She would be Edna Tannen.

  • Well, unless she chose to keep her own name - but I assume she would be a Tannen.

  • @bttf4444 said: Well, unless she chose to keep her own name - but I assume she would be a Tannen.



    Oh lord, I just realized. Poor Mr. Strickland would be related to Biff.

  • I really liked Edna! She had soooooo much evil deep inside! I wouldn't mind seeing her in the sequel. (Maybe not as the main villian though!)

  • lets see here we will make a count of the bad stuff biff does and the bad stuff edna does

    Biff and his family,being a bully,forceing george to do his work,trying to act tough (cowboy tannen from bttf 3) and his griff trying to steal money from a bank but the timeline was changed to griff and his gang smashing into a clock tower and kid tannen for tax stuff and as danny parker puts it smelling like a piece of crap

    Edna,burned down hill valley,framed doc,didnt care if kid tannen killed doc,being a complete nutcase and shes just plain crazy ,tricked herself into thinking that she was helping hill valley,tried to kill doc and marty with a shotgun in ep 5,smashing a car into the police station,escaped police capture,turned hill valley into a police state,tried to brain wash everyone into becoming her zombies, tried to brain wash doc, and as danny parker said she was a overall pain in the ass

    so the biggest villan in bttf is EDNA

  • I sorta wanted to see more of the Biff family trio, one Biff is nice, but three could have been a bit better executed story wise.
