Because I'm waaaaaaay overdue for a TV show fan art. In fact, I was so overdue that I even put three characters. c:
Anyway, my brother and I have been watching the Ben 10 series like crazy lately (we finished Ultimate Alien in a stupidly small amount of time xD) and I think Albedo is totally my favorite bad guy from the whole entire franchise. He kind of reminds me of Box Ghost--the persistent yet slightly out-of-it guy who hates the hero but doesn't have a good way to get rid of him.
And of course, Zak Monday, simply because he's the only bad guy I've ever seen who gives away his team's plan just for the sake of being a pain in the rear, and I can respect that. Also Zak Saturday himself is one of the coolest characters I've ever seen in a cartoon series, so naturally Zak Monday is one of the best baddies, too. (Second only to Albedo.)
So, having decided that the dastardly versions of heroes are the best villains, you can imagine my delight when Mad Jack showed up, so he had to be included for the sake of all anti-heroes out there.
The whole time I was drawing this, I couldn't help but think there's a fourth one I'm forgetting. I know Danny Phantom faced some evil Dannys, but they were all either him in an evil state or pathetic clones that didn't even get dialogue. So I'm still not sure who I'm missing, but oh well. The team is just as good with only three members, I suppose. I might also add that Monday would lead the team by default, because Mad Jack has issues and Albedo seems like the type of guy to get distracted easily.
Also, the background behind Monday is the melting interior of the airship, but it's kind of hard to tell (sorry :c). Also I didn't have time for a few small details on the Fang, so please just overlook those, yes? c;
Don't forget to fave/comment! <3

If I make another fan art starring any of these characters, it'll probably get a different title. I'm going to respectfully ask you to drop the topic, because I don't like to make enemies and this conversation really isn't worth having. Also, your art actually looks pretty cool, and I don't want any bad blood between us. Thank you.
I'm not familiar with that, so I can't really help you there.
Basically the opposite of an anti-hero. While the anti-hero often fights on the protagonist's team, but with selfish motives, the anti-villain plays a villain's game, but for what's at least in their eyes a noble cause. They may be personally more noble or heroic than an anti-hero but the means to achieve their ends are often considered immoral, unjust, sometimes even evil. Sometimes, they may simply be a villain with gentlemanly qualities or a code of honor or some sense of justice. Anti-villains will occasionally side with their rivals (usually the protagonist) if a greater threat than themselves comes or it is in both of their best interests. Oftentimes, if they do join the protagonists, they are distrusted. Often also considered "grey" characters due to their moral ambiguity. It is possible to be both an anti-villain and anti-hero at the same time, depending on the character's goal and their methods of attaining it.
Examples of popular anti-villains include Magneto, Ozymandias from Watchmen, Eric Finch, Benjamin Linus, General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross from the Incredible Hulk comics, the Jigsaw Killer, Francis Hummel, Kane from Command & Conquer, The Operative from the film Serenity, Nagato from the Naruto series, Loki from the 2011 adaptation of the Thor comics, and the Imposter Dan from Dan Vs.. Despite this, there are some villains that do have good intentions but carry them out in a vicious manner which can make them Complete Monsters. An example of this would be Sentinel Prime from Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
